A previous killing, pictured, saw a sheep stabbed to death and covered in Pentagrams. Hampshire police are now investigating if the two incidents are linkedA sheep has been found impaled on a pitchfork alongside an upside-down cross made of hay in the latest animal killing to feature occult imagery in the New Forest.

The animal is reported to have been stabbed multiple times before being left on a road near the village of Cadnam in the Hampshire national park.  The death of the ewe, found on 2 January, is the latest in a spate of animal attacks apparently linked to the occult in the region. It comes after a dead sheep was found with five pointed pentagrams sprayed onto it near the village of Bramshaw, around 2km, in November.
