    Unhappy NE - Family Devastated After Goats Killed In Bizarre Manner, Omaha, 2005

    Last week, two goats were found strangled, drained of blood, then positioned inside their pen.

    The Nebraska Humane Society's initial analysis was that the killings may have been performed by a cult, Omaha television station KETV reported.

    Investigators said this week that they need new leads in the killings. The goats' owners were devastated by the deaths. They said the goats were family pets. Beth Roth said her four daughters played with the goats nearly every day for the year that they'd been caring for them.

    Last year, they even posed the goats for the family's Christmas card."

    They named these pets after my grandma and grandpa -- their great-grandma and grandpa -- Phyllis and Charlie," Roth said.

    Roth said her daughters won Charlie at the county fair.

    "Goats are very sweet, fun pets. They're very mischievous. They like to play and escape out of the pen and get into things they're not supposed to," Roth said.

    Roth talked about discovering the animals after they were attacked."We noticed when we pulled up, they weren't moving. Their bodies were posed in the same position next to each other," Roth said. "My kids were traumatized by this, and so am I.

    Hopefully they will catch the killers and give them some prison time; I abhor anyone that mistreats animals in any way, let alone killing them.

    Abuse of animals is a sure sign of criminal tendencies ,mental problems & future human murderers. They must be caught & punished .I am dismayed at the trauma suffered by the young owners as well.

    How horrible. I remember when someone killed a bunch of animals that the high school students were raising in the 4H program here. Made me sick!

    I don't see how anyone can kill or abuse animals. People that do this usually "advance" (maybe the right word is "devolve") to taking their sadism out on humans. Look at Jeffrey Dahmer.

    Maybe this should be another lock em up and throw away the key offense.

    OMG! I have goats, I would flip if I found them like that! If someone can torture animals in that way, killing people isn't too much of a stretch.

    People who kill or torture animals DEFINITELY have serious mental problems
    and they can easily move onto humans.
    Even young children who hurt animals should be brought to a therapist...
    the sooner, the better.

    As for this crime, it is very sinister and creepy. What kind of cult activity
    could be going on out there in Nebraska?

    It's eerie how they did it so "clean", as the police officer stated.

    Thought that was odd too, if they were strangled then other woumds made by a knife or whatever wasn't mentioned.
