Police: Large Hole in Dead Deer's Rectum Likely Caused by Possum, Not Satanists

A look inside the police reports close to home.

Less than a week after a pet donkey was shot and killed, the Barrow County Sheriff’s Office investigated another animal-related incident.

According to the incident report dated Feb. 19, a Winder-area man called the sheriff’s office because he thought a dead deer he found alongside Groveland Drive “may have been used in some sort of satanic ritual.”

The deer was missing eyes and feet and there was a “large hole in the rectal area,” the man reported.

Upon investigating the carcass, the deputy wrote:

“When I looked at the deer I could see insects in the eye sockets, which seemed to be normal for a carcass on the side the road. The feet had been cut off, which is often done to harvest the feet for use in projects, such as gun racks. The large hole … was likely done by an opossum.”

There were no gunshot wounds.

“It is possible the animal was struck by a vehicle and a person cut the feet off upon finding it,” the deputy wrote.

No one should be allowed to harvest parts for a "craft project" and leave that scene for another to discover. There is no way to know if the animal was already dead. The proper removal of the carcas could have prevented this police report. We need a bit more human decency here. By the way, the story isn't complete because the first a animals to show up are usually vultures who are natures trash removal system so if they did not tear at this body then it leaves some questions unanswered.

There were satanic rituals done years ago in a field in Auburn. I wouldn't be surprised if thats' the case here too. Check on the time of year and history of this sort of thing and they might come up with that as a possible answer to the mystery part of "doesn't add up".

What other weird things are going on in Barrow County? If there are 'other' things (maybe not being reported) that would indicate a weirdo problem there. What are the locals saying - they know whether or not all the weird reports are being logged by police, or ignored.

Im sorry I would have thought the same thing that it was a satanist y'all doing the most right now.
