From the Brooklyn Paper:
On Friday morning, Anne-Katrin Titze and Ed Bahlman’s discovered a chicken neck and head — disembodied! — on their daily walk.
Nearby, Bahlman found a large box with two latex gloves inside. Beside the box were feathers — likely from the chicken — strewn about the banks of the lake.
Hours later, the horror show in Brooklyn’s most beloved park took an extreme turn.
Bahlman’s friend, Bonita Makuch, came upon entrails piled on the edge of Prospect Park lake. Some of the guts had fallen into the water — pieces of viscera were peaking out like fleshy glaciers. A chicken’s carcass floated nearby.
“It was quite disgusting,” said Makuch, who was unsure if all the tripe belonged to only chickens. “With a pile that big, it seems to me you’d have to do a lot of killing to get that many guts.”
Susan Yuen, who first came upon a similar revolting crime scene in the same area along Prospect Park southwest last week, saw the intestines in the early afternoon and immediately alerted park officials. A park employee — who would not give his name — quickly cleaned up the mess, pulling two chicken carcasses out of the water and throwing it all in a trash bag.
The incident marks the second gore-fest at Prospect Park in two weeks. Last week, The Brooklyn Paper delved into the mind-bending mystery of a bloody chopping block, smashed turtle shells, and an arson — all of which appear to have been related.
I like the Parks Dept's response:
"Unless someone catches someone in the act of either abusing an animal or littering — which this gory stuff is — there is little we can do."
SO CATCH THEM JACKASS. Do you know what a stakeout is?
