Headless Poultry: Likely Santeria Sacrifice

New, 11 comments

LAist.com digs up a possible answer for all those headless animals and poultry found recently in Echo Park and Silver Lake: It's probably a Santeria sacrifice (our commenters suggested the same). Detetive Susan Brumagin of the Animal Cruelty Taskforce at the LAPD tells the blog: "We've had stuff like that over the past three and a half years. We've had several cases in parks where we find decapitated chic, doves, goats and some other small animals." Meanwhile, Eastsider LA has a report of a local Echo Park resident discovering a pentagram, as well as candles and ashes, during his morning walk. [LAist.com]
