The Bodies of 25 Animals Were Found Dumped in a Bag on the Side of the Road

Someone is sacrificing animals in the tiny village of Pomona, NY. Last month, people discovered the bodies of over two dozen animals that had been decapitated or otherwise mutilated, and then stuffed in a bag near the side of the road.

According to accounts, the animals were likely to have struggled and suffered as they died as most of the cuts were careless and imprecise. A goat, for example, that was found along with the many other carcasses, had stab wounds in his thigh and the area was completely degloved — the skin was torn away from the underlying tissue.

Officers and activists suspect the animals were killed in ritual sacrifice. In some communities, such sacrifice serves as an initiation or even to cleanse the practitioner's mind, body or spirit.

However, it is clear that there was nothing clean about the gruesome acts that took these animals lives. While killing livestock is not against the law, it is illegal to torture them. The people responsible for the deaths of these 25 poor animals should be caught and brought to justice.

Please sign the petition and encourage the New York State Police to search for the individuals responsible and charge them with animal cruelty.
