SAN FRANCISCO (CBS 5) – People in San Francisco’s Mission District were stunned to find a headless goat Friday. But residents say this isn’t the first time this has occurred.

“Don’t know what the deal was with it, or who put it there, but it was just the body, and head was missing, and there were parts of guts hanging out, and everything,” said Trisha Rampe. She said the goat was dumped into a gutter and that the sight left her sick to her stomach.

“I was thinking of something to do with Santeria or one of those religious rituals, or sacrifices,” Rampe said.

The dead goat is the second beheaded animal found in the Mission District in a month. Officials with San Francisco Animal Care and Control said the other animal was not a goat. Kat Brown of Animal Care and Control told CBS 5 the animal was found 10 blocks from where the goat was discovered Friday.

“Sounds very much like the Mission, you can find anything here,” said Mission resident Pat Lopez.

Anyone with information about either case is asked to contact Animal Care and Control.
