Authorities discovered two decapitated goat carcasses in garbage bags behind a Burger King in New York last week. The incident is being described as a “ritualistic animal sacrifice” by investigators from the Suffolk County’s Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SPCA), according to the New York Post.

The decapitated goat remains were found in black bags along with other items that suggest a ritualistic animal sacrifice, said Roy Gross, chief of the Suffolk County SPCA.

The Suffolk County SPCA is offering a $2,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the individual(s) responsible for this barbaric act of animal cruelty.
