New Shame of Brooklyn Revealed: Queens Beats Kings

In yet another humiliation for the battered New York borough of Brooklyn, investigators report that its wannabe trendy Prospect Park is home to bands of roaming vagrants who hunt and kill squirrels, ducks and pigeons.  Geese and cygnets have been mutilated and killed; pigeons have been seen roasting over fires.

This is not a one time event for what many believe to be New York’s rattiest borough.  Says the Brooklyn Paper:

The new poaching busts bring to mind last year’s wave of animal murders by the so-called “Butcher of Prospect Park,” whose death toll included waterfowl, chickens, turtles and a goat.

It is all very sad and in sharp contrast to glamorous Queens where, as has been widely reported, even the pork is kosher.
