According to LHS Executive Director Irene Borngraeber, they retrieved five large black garbage bags from the sidewalk of 2327 John F. Kennedy Boulevard yesterday, with each containing approximately 20 dead chickens, pigeons, or blackbirds – all missing their heads.

She added that the bags were placed on the curb sometime before 1 p.m. Tuesday and that there were no other signs of injury.

“This was a deliberate and ritualistic act, and we are asking anyone with information to contact the Liberty Humane Society Animal Response Team (ART) at 201-547-4888,” stated Borngraeber.

No further information was immediately available.
