The Daily Mail is at it again - blaming occultists for a crime that probably has a far more ordinary explanation.
The crime itself is pretty horrible - someone is killing goats in a Devon village. Some of the villagers - as well as Daily Mail reporters - are saying that satanists must be behind it because of "the way the goats were killed and because they were horned".
The goats were killed by having their throats cut. The horns were not removed. There were no particular signs of any occult or satanic ritual having taken place - such as circles in the ground or symbols drawn anywhere.
Whoever killed these goats committed a horrible crime - an act of terrible cruelty - and I hope they are caught. But if everyone is running around only looking for satanists, they probably won't find any. The real criminals are probably bored yobs. I hope the police catch them before they harm any other creatures.
