The remains of a gruesome ritual that left five animal hearts on top of a stone with candles surrounding it have been found close to St Peter’s Church in the U.K.’s Bramshaw village, Hampshire.
A hiker discovered the scene on top of Stagbury Hill in New Forest, which lies close to the church. The church, which dates back to the 12th century, has previously been targeted by vandals. Dead animals have also been recently found inside the church. In 2019, a number of sheep were killed and their bodies were spray-painted with satanic symbols in the New Forest village.

The Times reports a hiker came across the scene at a triangulation station located at the top of Stagbury Hill in the New Forest near the village of Bramshaw, Hampshire. The village’s 12th-century church has previously been targeted by vandals.
The outlet reported the hiker cleaned up the scene before reporting it to the police. The police said they are patrolling the area.
The unsettling display was found close to the church where a dead cat was found last month by members of the congregation hanging from a flagpole, according to The Daily Mail.
The Rev. David Bacon warned of “sinister goings-on” after the bodies of dead animals were deliberately left at St. Peter’s Church, The Times reported. A dead fox was also found a few weeks ago on the doorsteps of the sanctuary.
“Every so often we get things like this happening. It makes everybody feel very uncomfortable,” he said. “It’s really unsettling and sinister for everyone. We’re not sure what will happen next if anything.”
