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 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.

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..."
