Caught on Camera
Police in the little town of Gardner, Kansas—One wonders how small a town it is; do they have at least one Walmart? A Dollar General? If so, they aren’t THAT small—were concerned after some citizens reported seeing a mountain lion, aka a cougar, aka a puma, aka a panther, on the loose. (Note: Please don’t refer to horny old ladies as “cougars.” It is disrespectful to a majestic animal. During a Cherokee naming ceremony years ago, I was bequeathed the Cougar as my totem. I cringe every time I hear someone use the term for anything other than the animal. A little respect, people!) The coppers set up a couple of cameras near the town park (It can’t be that small a town if it has its own park, right?). They failed to capture any photographic evidence of a cougar—but what they did capture is enough to make the blood run cold!
There are two possibilities. One, either the town is home to a werewolf, or were-coyote; a Dogman comparable to the one often reported sighted in Michigan, and a gorilla or some similar species of great ape. Or two, there is a shapeshifter on the loose, a being that can appear as a cougar, a werewolf, an ape, or even Santa Claus whenever it chooses! The third possibility, that the photographs taken by the trail cameras are the work of pranksters, is too remote to consider and, as we may well be dealing with a monster on the loose, too dangerous to consider. You can’t take any chances where were-coyotes-apes-cougars-Santas are concerned.
