Recently, the bodies of a headless chicken and goat were found at the Tanglewilde and Fairdale intersection in the southwest Houston neighborhood, but this isn’t the first time residents have found the disturbing packages.
“There is just one incident after another on Nextdoor. Every three or four months we are finding these things in our neighborhood,” Callie Markantonis told KPRC-TV’s Click 2 Houston.
This time, resident Callie Markantonis discovered a box in the street. When she got closer, she found a newspaper in the box. She spread it out and saw fur.
“It was a goat and chicken in the box and both of them were headless,” she said.
Security footage taken shows a white car driving down the street with a box on top. The car stops and someone gets out of the passenger side, picks up the box, and drops it off at the intersection before driving away. Unfortunately, they were not able to get a license plate number from the video.
Markantonis filed a report with the local police and said it was not the first time the residents have found decapitated animals.
“About two years ago on this corner, two giant headless chickens were in plastic bags on the street. We were all like, ‘Okay that’s strange’ and then it started happening every two or three months,” she said.
Neighbors are unsure if the acts are tied to religion or why they keep happening. They want to know who is responsible and why it continues to happen.
“Where are they cutting the heads off? And where are the heads at? Where are they doing it at? Why here?” one man told the media outlet.
“Seems like some Voodoo magic or something strange someone is doing, and it doesn’t belong over here,” Jamal Erif said.
The Houston SPCA is investigating the incident and the residents just want it to stop.
“Please stop dumping this in our neighborhood,” Markantonis pleaded.
These senseless acts of animal cruelty need to end and the residents don’t deserve to have to find these heartbreaking discoveries in their neighborhood. Anyone with information about these gruesome animal murders and dumpings should contact the Houston SPCA.
