Dog sacrificed on make-shift altar in Wicklow woods

Looks like there’s some amateur satanism on the go! Must be all the fine weather, and with the kids off school… (thanks to Emily for forwarding this one on)

The Irish Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals is
investigating reports that a dog was sacrificed in the Co Wicklow
village of Enniskerry.

The disturbing act is understood to have happened about two weeks ago at Knocksink woods.

The ISPCA says it has received confirmation that a dog was killed and
bled dry on a purpose-built altar made from stones taken from the river
and cemented together.

It says it considers the killing to be “a most serious incident” and is
horrified that nobody contacted the authorities earlier. Dog sacrificed on make-shift altar in Wicklow woods »
