Bridgeport police have reported a satanic ritual in which chickens are doused with cologne and set on fire in a local cemetery.
According to the Connecticut Post, Officer Ken Ruge said in a report that he recently found a rooster that had been burned to death and a nearby empty bottle of cologne at the cemetery.
A second chicken was found behind a headstone, burned but still alive. The city Animal Control Department brought the bird to a veterinary hospital.
Police investigated similar incidents two years ago, including one in which a woman hanged several chickens upside down from a tree as part of curse she put on an ex-boyfriend.
Police Sergeant James Myers has said occult activity has increased in Bridgeport, much of it related to voodoo or other activities.
