Tortured Goat Found In Prospect Park - WARNING: Graphic Images!!
(above) A Decapitated Goat Head In Prospect Park was found two days after the body (below).
The head was lying on the sidewalk behind a tree opposite the parade grounds with two dishes nearby. Both plates were covered in wax, and also had pieces of a green leaf and other food scraps on them — raising the probability that the tortured animal was part of a Santeria offering.

Two days after the gutted carcass and the entrails of an unidentifiable decapitated animal turned up in the park, the head, covered in orange wax, was discovered roughly 100 feet away on Parkside Avenue on Thursday, according to the Brooklyn Paper.
“I was walking my dog, sending texts on my Blackberry, and then I saw it,” said Alex Gurevich, who also first spotted the carcass on two days before. “I thought, ‘Man, is that the head?’ It’s gross.”
The head was lying on the sidewalk behind a tree opposite the parade grounds with two dishes were nearby. Both plates were covered in wax, and also had pieces of a green leaf and other food scraps on them — raising the probability that the wretched creature was part of a Santeria offering.
Along with the wax, the goat head also had an ornamental dressing on its forehead. The goat did not appear to have died in a great deal of pain, as it still wore a crooked smile despite missing its legs and vital organs.
Park spokesman Eugene Patron said that he would dispatch an employee to do the grim work of gathering the goat remains. Before the goat’s head was discovered, Patron was not too concerned about the appearance of the animal’s carcass in Brooklyn’s spiritual heart.
“It’s illegal dumping,” he said. “That’s pretty much it.”
