Earlier this month, denizens of the Mission District were horrified when a headless goat and dead chicken were found on the sidewalk along Capp Street. That only crystallized fear and longtime suspicion that residents are practicing Santeria religion on top of the lonely Bernal Hill.
Santeria -- a religion mostly practiced in the Caribbean -- includes animal sacrificing; goats' blood is thought to help cure diseases and prolong life. But is this religious sacrificing a myth? The other day, a Bernal Heights resident who calls herself Agent Amy says she came across this eerie Satanic pentagram.
Here's what Amy wrote on the Bernalwood blog:
"I saw this brand-spanking new pentagram at the top of Bernal Hill. The paint's still wet! In the center there's a red paper goat, but also charred goo and drip marks suggesting some mysterious satanic gore. At
the points of the pentagram are playing cards and melted black candles."
