Gruesome animal abuse reported in Westchester

BRIARCLIFF MANOR – The SPCA of Westchester and the New York City Department of Environmental Protection are investigating a grisly find – a goat and other animals with their heads severed. The DEP found the dead animals in plastic bags in Yorktown on Monday.

SPCA Humane Law Enforcement Director Ernest Lungaro said other animals were also found decapitated.

“Other animals included different variety of birds and many of them were missing their heads as well,” he said. One of the goats was taken to a lab for a necropsy. 

The investigation into who killed the animals is continuing.

Lungardo said there appears to be no connection between these killing and the murder of a number of cats that were killed and left hanging in plastic bags on trees in Yonkers months ago.

The public is being urged to contact the SPCA’s Animal Cruelty Hotline with any information that may help make an arrest in this investigation. That number is 914-941-7797. All calls will be kept confidential.
