Goat beheaded with samurai-style sword, Louisiana SPCA says
NEW ORLEANS (AP – March 25, 2015) — The Louisiana SPCA says it is investigating New Orleans’ second goat beheading in two months — this one with a samurai-style sword.
SPCA Spokeswoman Alicia Haefele said says that on Tuesday, the SPCA received a 12-second cellphone video showing young men around a kiddie pool where a goat is pulled into the air, and one man cuts off its head with the sword.
Haefele says this killing appears unrelated to the Jan. 28 beheading of a baby pygmy goat. But she says it makes investigators wonder if there’s “a bigger issue in our community.”
The Louisiana SPCA is offering $3,000 for information leading to the killers.
New Orleans police say they have not received a complaint and are not investigating.
