A dead chicken was found in a Corn Flakes box on the side of the road in Tewksbury Monday afternoon. It was believed to be a part of a Santeria ritual.  You can check out the pictures below.

The Santeria ritual (Latin American religion) could result in an animal cruelty charge.  The chicken was found in a box mixed with apples, oranges, popcorn, potatoes, quarters, as well as broken red and white candles.
