Animals Found In PA Home Used For Suspected Animal Sacrifice

by KYW's Kim Glovas

Officers from the Pennsylvania SPCA made a gruesome discovery on Sunday afternoon when they went to rescue two starving dogs from a home in the Feltonville section of Philadelphia.

Officer Wayne Smith of the PSPCA says the agency first tried to contact the owner of the dogs on Christmas Eve, but got no response. Officers obtained a warrant to remove the dogs, but what they found was much more:

"Throughout the house, there was skulls of rams, sheep, what appeared to be a monkey, turtle shells, numerous things. Chicken feathers covered the place, candles, sacrificing a lot of animals there."

Two live but very emaciated dogs were removed and taken back to the PSPCA to be treated by veterinarians.

Smith says he learned that the owner went to Mexico and contracted the swine flu and is not being allowed back into the country yet. He says when he does, the owner will face at the least animal cruelty charges.

Officers also found a number of code violations which could condemn the property.
