RICHMOND TWP., Pa. - Something disturbing has been found on the side of Route 222 in Richmond Township.
"It was the goat that I found with its feet bound, it had a puncture wound in the jugular of its neck. From there I found all kinds of other animals around the area. It looked like birds-- a variety of birds, doves, chickens, ducks, it looked like their heads were twisted off," said the woman who found the remains. She wished to remain anonymous when speaking to 69 News.
She also found a small sheep, whose head was severed.
"I was very saddened and somewhat alarmed and angry," she said.
Fleetwood police are investigating. They say this could have been part of some sort of sacrifice ritual. Clothing was also found.
Police aren't the only ones looking into this; a representative from an anti-animal cruelty group based in Allentown was inspecting the scene Friday night. They too wanted to remain anonymous, but they determined the animal remains to be suspicious. The group is offering to assist police.
Officials say a farm tag found on one animal could help them get answers.
