The latest find in a series of gruesome dumpings in Prospect Park that began back in the spring of this year is thought to be a goat, or possibly a deer, reports The Brooklyn Paper.
The animal remains were found in two black plastic garbage bags, at the edge of the park approximately “30 feet from each other.” One bag apparently contained only guts, while the other contained the “gutted and decapitated deer or perhaps goat.”
The article makes no mention of police involvement and a park spokesman indicates that the only crime that he sees having been committed is “illegal dumping.”
That doesn’t change the creep factor of the whole thing, although nearby residents are not surprised by the find given the variety of other bloody animal remains discarded about the park in recent months. The first bloody find consisted merely of blood covering rocks along the lakefront, reported by The Brooklyn Paper in March.
Soon after however, remains of smashed turtle shells, chicken heads, a dead raccoon and even a dead dog were found in nearby areas. The remnants of an attempted camp fire and a burned out portion of reeds seems connected as well, though only by proximity and randomness.
Theories are few and mostly rather far-fetched, with little evidence cited beyond the blood and carcasses and the only investigation being conducted, apparently, is by “Park Officials.”
In the meantime, we can only hope that we have seen the last of the gore.
