I do know lots of happy stories that I could share, this is not one of them, but it is something that troubles me and I would like to know if this has happened to anyone else. Two years ago during the fall I was letting the dogs have a good run when I found a skull. I always study bones so that I can learn about the skeletal make up and draw animals better. When I looked at this one tho, it had a pie shaped piece that was missing from the top. I picked it up and u could see that it had been cut out for there was a tiny overcut at both ends. It was a large dog skull. I looked around for the other bones and noticed that some were there and others weren't. It was right beside the creek. I took it home to study it more. One of the boys that were visiting my son said it looked satanic to him. It gave everybody the creeps. The skull was very clean, no tissue or hair so it had been there a long time, but still I felt I should do something so first I calle the police. They were not interested so the next day I called the humane society. A special officer came out and I took him to where i found it. He said he was trying to catch the people who were doing this, but this had happened such a long time ago that there was no way. He said to watch for signs that they often put them in trees and such before having a "ritual". He also said that there are specific times of the year when these things happen so to keep an eye out. He asked me if I wanted the skull and I said god no and gave it to him. I asked him about the missing bones and he said they often use the feet as part of the ritual and injest the brains to help them go to hell. I told him I hoped they ended up exactly where they intended. AFter he left I told my kids and they told me of the circles...three foundations of some kind of buildings that were on the other side of the creek and up the hill. I went down with the camera to take pics of the writings that were all over the foundations. In the pics the ground and the trees around came out, but the what was written had red fuzzy lines that were present in the negatives. Mom suggested that I try to photograph them again but I just don't want to go back down there. The park was closest to where I lived and later that winter the dogs were running when they diverted back to the same place. I found a pit bull frozen to the ground two feet from where I found the skull. It was very cold so i assume he died the night before when we had a horrible drop in temp. I have never gone back since. I don't know why I am writting this, except that I would like to know if anybody else has found something similar and what they did about it. It just breaks my heart to know that a dog was used for something like this. There were paths well worn from the circle foundations to the creek opposite of the site where I found the skull. I want somehow to be able to expose the awful people, and I do look down there at night to see if I see headlights, there were tire tracks to that spot but fortunately for me I have never seen anything down there since. I hate that this has happened anywhere, but just down the street from you is scary. It weighs on my mind..seems there should be something to do, but what?
