Dead Animal Carcasses Left at CV Sheriff's Station

Someone left a box containing a headless animal that appeared to be a goat, and two dead chickens at the station.

An unknown person placed a box containing several dead animal carcasses at the , authorities said. 

A sheriff's department employee found the box containing one headless animal that appeared to be a goat and two dead chickens on January 6 about 7 a.m. on the east side of the building, 4554 Briggs Ave., La Crescenta, according to the report. 

"It is unclear as to why these animals were left on the side of the sheriff's station," deputies reported. 

Animal control arrived at the station to retrieve the dead animal carcasses. 

"It should be noted that during Satanic rituals animals are killed, beheaded and exposed due to contamination," according to the animal cruelty report.

I wonder if the people who leave the animal parts do so because they think it's a safe way to dispose of the bodies? I wonder how often this happens?

I wonder if this has anything to do with the animal sacrifice that happened in Angeles National Forest recently. Yikes.

@donna, I don't think it was due to the safe disposal of animal carcasses (or "bodies"). These animals were intentionally beheaded, not run over by a car or dead due to natural causes. Think about it.

I came across several animals in boxes just inside the Cobb estate a few months ago. Turkeys, or something. I didn't open the other ones, .... And still wonder.... I closed it back up quickly. The sheriffs would not respond to it, which I guess is reasonable. The box's were still there the next day. Anyone with a dog made a bee line for the box's.

Ugh. We need to keep our nice little area the way it is..nice. I hope they find out who is behind this and put an end to it. Also, the sentencing for these crimes is usually a joke, and we need to change that.

I don't think it's 'reasonable' for the police not to respond to boxes of dead animals. Not at all.

You can bet the main motive was to get in the news. Rachel..too many double negatives...and to me..too much of everything...

In this day and age anyone approaching a sheriff station with a box would ideally be captured on surveillance....

Well, this is still very disturbing. Many of us have pets here, and in some areas not far from here, people do keep goats and such as pets. I hate to think we should all now have to be even more worried about keeping them safe. Roaming bands of psychos who kill animals..not a comforting thought or something I want to see in our good little community. This is very troubling.

Please elaborate.

My thought exactly...

I agree with Ninja Girl. This doesn't reflect well on the Sheriff's Dept.

Those aren't pets. That is from some Santeria practice or someone wants the sheriff's deputies to think so. However, they usually drop the body parts in the trash or have some ritual disposal like burial. To my knowledge, they don't use housecats for Santeria or Palo Macumbe for that matter. I could be wrong.

Creepy! Rangers in Griffith Park come across animal sacrifice- burned etc. tied to witchcraft rituals. BAD

In Santeria, leaving the carcasses of sacrificed animals (usually chickens and goats) is to put a curse, in this case, on the Sheriff's Dept. Santeria is not not voodoo, although voodoo is a close sister religion. Neither of them is satanism. Hundreds of years ago when African slaves were brought to the Americas (Cuba, North America, South and Central American, Puerto Rico, and other islands), they were forced to practice Catholicism. In order to still be able to practice their Yoruba religion, they substituted their gods for the Catholic saints. Each Catholic saint took the place of a god (or vice versa, depending on how you look at it), so they basically had two names. The Catholic saint name and the Yoruba god name. In this way, they were able to appear that they were worshiping the Catholic saint and practicing Catholicism but in reality, they were still continuing with their Yoruba religion. This method also took place with Native Americans (North and South America). Ludovici, you are correct. They do not use house pets for rituals. I am sure that as with any other religion, there are those who become zealots or cult leaders (Jim Jones was Christian). Some only dabble and some concoct their own weird thing they might call Santeria, but in the truest sense, it is not. As Stevie Wonder put it, "When you believe in things you don't understand..."
