A week after ARM investigators made a disturbing discovery of a blind Chihuahua who had been duct taped to a tree as a part of a religious ceremony, ARM returned to the site to conduct a thorough investigation.
Located near the Black Point Marina, off SW 87th Avenue and 232nd Street of South Miami, ARM’s investigative unit conducted a search of the surrounding area.
Amongst their findings were the remains of several sacrificed dogs whose jaws had clearly been sawed in half – an alarmingly common discovery. Also unearthed were numerous animal remains, animal bones/ skulls and common trinkets used during sacrificial ceremonies such as dolls, coconuts, red cloth, snails, cowrie shells and Elegua stone statues.
The most gruesome discovery was made at the end of the day when ARM’s Founder and Lead Investigator, Richard Couto, spotted a livestock feed bag floating in the nearby canal. When ARM investigators cut the bag open, they found the rotting corpse of a dog- decapitated and with it’s limbs missing!
The canal where the dogs tortured and mutilated body was discovered was ironically next to the public water treatment plant, expressing a social, health and environmental concern.
The evidence unveiled in this investigation adds to ARM’s already heavily documented case that will be presented to the Supreme Court in ARM’s efforts to amend the sacrificing of animals for religion.
