Well here’s something you don’t see every day: Decapitated chickens in Central Park.
Looks like a fowl scene…
Early rumors are that the chickens are somehow related to the practice of voodoo. Per Amy Baker, who sent in the photo to Gawker:
According to a fellow who works in our building (apparently familiar with the practice, though a non-believer) one light and one dark chicken is significant. Perhaps someone was rejected by a nearby co-op board?
Of course, the comments section of that post is now flowing with people’s thoughts on the matter, including this one from “burbere002″:
I’ve seen a couple of giant cow tongues nailed to trees in the park (who to call? The cops or Katz’s?)
Anyone else see any cow tongues or dead chickens in the park?
UPDATE 1:55 pm: From MUW reader Heather, via Facebook:
Not in the park… but during an early dog walk about a year ago I did find a bowl with headless chicken and a few other things on W.68 & Riverside Blvd. – totally looked like voodoo crap!!
