Sacramento police investigating another case of livestock killings

The Sacramento Police Department is investigating two animal remains-filled paper bags that were found near a railroad track in the city Monday morning.

City police officials confirmed the appalling discovery of beheaded animals, saying they received a call about the bags at around 10 a.m. by someone who found the bags in the 1700 block of 19th Street close to Q Street.

Officials revealed that one of the two paper bags contained a beheaded small bird. A dead chicken was also found at the side of the bags.

It is not the first of its kind case in the Sacramento area. Since December last year, more than a dozen decapitated and mutilated animals have been found at different parks, cemeteries and other public places in the city.

On June 27, a bagful of dead chickens was found along the light rail tracks on 26th Avenue in South Sacramento. Other cases included bowls of pigeon heads, dead birds, and decapitated goats. In some cases, animal remains were accompanied by lighted candles or small amounts of cash.

It is still unclear if all of the incidents have any connection with one another. No arrests have been made in any of these horrendous cases of animal mutilations thus far.
