A Lincoln County family fears their pet goat may have been the victim of a Satanic ritual.

The family was horrified when they found their pet goat "Ike" decapitated and left in their yard.

The little goat who's named after president Dwight Eisenhower was always getting into something says Kim Watts his owner. She says he enjoyed playfully head-butting the cow's in the family's pasture.

It was in that pasture that family members found the "little Ike" dead.

His owner says he was decapitated, and appeared to have been pierced with a sharp object and had his body drained of all it's blood.

She also says the family never found his head. All those factors lead watts to believe Ike was not killed by an animal. She fears he may have been killed as part of some satanic ritual.

The Lincoln County Sheriff's department is looking into this case. They are not confirming that Ike's death is a result of a satanic ritual. However, the sheriff says he has never personally seen anything like this before.

The family that owned Ike is so serious about catching his killer that they are offering a reward to anyone who can give police information that will lead to the arrest of Ike's murder.

    They should do the same to the person or people that done that to the poor goat. If the law would stop patting these sick freaks on the hand, they don't even get a slap. I think it would end a lot of the weird things that some do.

    As a member of a local Pagan group, I want to state our disgust at this death. Whoever is responsible STOLE someone's PET and did a horrible crime! It was obviously aimed directly at the family. They should be prosecuted to the FULL extent of the law! We do not do such things; we love nature and all her glory. I hope they're found soon.

    This is Horrible! That poor family! It's hard enough to lose a family pet to natural death, but such a cruel and senseless death. That poor little goat! It makes no sense that we have such animal cruelty in the world. My thoughts and prayers are with this family.

    What kind of sick person/people could do that to an innocent animal. It sickens me that the laws are not stronger with animal abuse. What would he/she/they do to a human life? I hope this murderer is found because that is exactly what they are.
