Y'all remember the Satanic Panic? It was huge in the 80s and 90s, and it never even really went away. It still bubbles just below the surface of some areas to the United States and world. Most recently it has to do with Q-Anons and the belief that the Democratic party is led by baby-eating Satanists. Yup, that's a thing.

The 'Satanic Panic' is hitting a little closer to home here in El Paso as there were about 15 animal carcasses discovered near a northeast El Paso intersection. A game warden with the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, Captain Ray Spears said:

It did not look like the portions for eating were removed from the goats. The bodies seem intact. Satanic rituals, blood removal, possibly. Not a common occurrence to see that many goats dumped like that.

The area the animals were found is a popular dumping site, as Spears puts it:

popular for dumping because there are not many people to see them, especially at night. Pull up, drag them off the back of a pickup, and get out of there.

As for how the El Paso Police Department is handling the situation, they are investigating the incident as a case of animal cruelty.

Oh, and in case you're looking for some lunacy in regards to a 'satanic panic' that's happening now, just take a look at Lil Nas X and his custom Nike's he was selling. That OF COURSE, had to be a sign that Satanic rituals are a thing now and it's something to fear.
