The slaughter of a goat inside a house in County Tyrone, Northern Ireland is being investigated by police

BBC News:

Dungannon SDLP councillor Vincent Currie said local people contacted the police after they spotted blood seeping from underneath the door.

He said the house at Mark Street was occupied by African immigrants.

Mr Currie said police found "a goat's head and entrails discarded in the backyard," and when they went inside, "a goat carcass was in a cooking pot".

He said pools of blood were on the kitchen floor.

"There was a large live billy goat in the utility room, clearly awaiting the same fate," he added.

The Ulster Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals is now looking after the goat.

A spokesman for the charity said it was not the first such incident in Northern Ireland.

Police said those involved would be spoken to as it "could be a health and safety issue".

Feeding the neighborhood cats, perhaps.
