Are We Really Surprised a Headless Goat and Some Roosters Were Found Floating in Biscayne Bay?

As far as things found floating in Biscayne Bay, yesterday's discovery of a headless goat and some decapitated roosters was pretty tame. So why are we acting like this is a thing that doesn't happen all the time here?

According to the Business Insider, the butchered animals were floating along the seawall behind The Floridian condominiums on South Beach. Obviously, it's expected the animals were part of sacrifice related to Santeria or another Caribbean religion.

"Unfortunately, this kind of thing does happen around here with all of the different cultures," Miami Beach Police spokesman Bobby Hernandez told the paper.

Which, duh.

This is the same body of water where a bag full of human body parts was found floating in 2011.

The same same body of water where in 2009 there was actually a gruesome rash of bags full of human body parts found floating around.

In 2010, literally dozens of headless animals were found littering the yards and streets of a Miami neighborhood.

If anything, we were kind of overdue for something like this to happen again.

Oh, and in case you're wondering: here's your link to some NSFW pictures.
