Apparently rooster sacrifice is done in the Santeria religion, which mixes Afro-Caribbean beliefs and Roman Catholicism: something similar happened in New Jersey a few months ago, for example. The roosters are sacrificed for saints or as an offering.
Kind of disturbing, and also unsafe, since they probably have germs and could attract rats.
Is this common? Has anybody else spotted this sort of thing in the neighborhood?
UPDATE: The reader confirms it was Ogden, not Otis.
