Have ‘Satanists’ struck again? Animal hearts surrounded by candles are found at stone landmark in apparent occult ritual – in village plagued by ‘sinister goings on’

Satan and his demons are busy in these last days. You can be sure of that…..

Five animal hearts laid out in a pattern and surrounded by a circle of candles have been found at a beauty spot as part of an apparent Satanist ritual.

Photos show the meat laid on a triangulation point following an elaborate ceremony at the top of Stagbury Hill in the New Forest.

A member of the public discovered the hearts and cleared them up before reporting it to the police – who told locals they are patrolling the area in the national park.

The grim scene was found close to a church where a dead cat was last month found by congregation members hanging ‘horribly’ from a flagpole, forcing the vicar issue a warning about the prospect of witchcraft.

The strange occurrence took place close to a church in Hampshire where a vicar recently warned of ‘sinister goings on’

Last month the vicar of the church in Bramshaw, Hampshire, warned of ‘sinister’ goings-on after the bodies of dead animals were discovered deliberately left there.

Reverend David Bacon raised the prospect of ‘witchcraft’ after the cat was found just before Christmas.

Just a few weeks before this, a dead fox was found on the doorstep of the 12th century church.

After this latest hilltop discovery earlier this month, a Facebook user commented: ‘Weird – connected to the cat strung up the flagpole and the dead fox left on the church steps?’

Another said: ‘Very odd! Probably linked to the strange things left at the church recently?’ 

A fellow social media user added: ‘Perhaps the idiots thought the Trig Point was a sacred druid shrine or something?’ One commenter said: ‘Could have poison in it, some strange ritual’ and posted an emoji of a witch.

The vicar said: ‘It’s really unsettling and sinister for everyone. We’re not sure what will happen next, if anything’

Rev Bacon said the group of ladies who found the cat when they came to clean St Peter’s Church and get it ready for Christmas had been left ‘unsettled’.

In 2019, the same New Forest village was terrorised by suspected Satanists who stabbed sheep and sprayed them with pentagrams and graffitied Rev Bacon’s medieval church with the same occult markings.

The vicar said he isn’t sure who is behind this, saying it could be people ‘just angry at the world’ or it could be people concerned with witchcraft.

He said last month: ‘The cat – rather horribly – was found hanging from the flagpole. The fox was left on the doorstep, but it’s very unlikely it died there naturally.

‘The cat was found by a group of ladies on Monday. They were coming in to clean the church for Christmas but found it on the flagpole. It was really upsetting for them.

‘Every so often we get things like this happening. It makes everybody feel very uncomfortable.

‘I can’t say definitively if it’s linked to the sheep killings from a few years ago. We have no idea what motivated this. 

‘Are they just angry at life in general, or against the church, or is it linked to witchcraft? I can’t say.

Reverend Bacon said he is unsure who is behind the ‘sinister’ conduct, suggesting it could be people ‘just angry at the world’ or people concerned with witchcraft. Pictured: The body of a sheep found with pentagrams spray-painted on it in 2019

‘But the sheep killings were much more sophisticated. The dead fox felt a lot less organised. It’s really unsettling and sinister for everyone. We’re not sure what will happen next, if anything.

‘I have no idea why it is happening in our area. If it is connected to witchcraft, then the New Forest has been linked to witchcraft for hundreds of years.

‘But it could just be random acts of nastiness. It’s all pretty horrible for those who find the dead animals.’

A Hampshire Police spokesman said: ‘We received a report of meat found on the top of Stagbury Hill with candles placed in a circle around it. This was spotted by members of the public at around 7.45am on 13 January.

‘The items were disposed of before the report was made. We have conducted enquiries and will continue to patrol the area.’

Alternative religions including Satanism, Paganism and Shamanism have seen an explosion in follower numbers between the 2011 and 2021 censuses.

Millions have ditched Christianity – mostly for no religion – but the number of Satanists in England and Wales has more than doubled, from 1,893 in 2011 and rising by 3,161 (167%) to 5,054 in 2021.

The highest number of Satanists are in the South East, rising by 165% to 795 in 2021, according to the latest census.

Andy Diabolus, head of the UK chapter of The Global Order of Satan, said he was ‘proud’ of the census rise in followers after efforts to encourage Satanists.

Followers say the religion is ‘built on the self and in carrying out Satan’s work with humanity’ by challenging ‘authoritarianism and injustice’ through ‘acts of compassion and the practice of empathy’.

Despite common misconceptions, Satanists do not actually worship the devil, as they are atheists and do not believe in the supernatural.

‘We revere ourselves as individuals capable of the greatest human expression of compassion and empathy,’ The Global Order of Satan’s FAQs explains.

Satanism’s follower numbers in England and Wales have also been overtaken by Shamanism, which had less than 1,000 followers in 2011 but had a more than 12-fold growth in a decade.

The healing-focused spiritual practice had just 650 followers in 2011 – but this shot up to 7,889 in 2021, according to the census. Source

The enemy of our souls is mocking our Lord. Remember that before the “Lamb of God (Jesus)” made the perfect and final sacrifice for our sins, God required the blood of animals as a guilt offering to Himself.

In satanic rituals, satan demands this same sacrifice be made to him. Don’t forget that satan knows the Word of God and knows that his days are numbered. His goal is to take as many souls with him to hell as he can.

Satan is a counterfeit of the true God of the Universe. Remember these words from Scripture:

 “How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations!

 For thou hast said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north:

 I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the most High.

 Yet thou shalt be brought down to hell, to the sides of the pit” (Isaiah 14:12-15).
