They dug up WHAT?!

There are a few possibilities, here. Either there are a lot more strange phenomena that go down in Russia than anywhere else in the industrialized world, or else the Russian press is simply better at covering it. Perchance the Russian government is less restrictive than its counterparts in the West, as far as what information of a paranormal variety it allows to be disseminated for public consumption. Then again, it could be that the Russian media is not so stringently bound by the tropes of journalistic integrity as are the Associated Press or Reuters. Or maybe the problem is on our end, here in the West. Maybe we just can’t differentiate between their legitimate journalism and the Russian equivalent of WEEKLY WORLD NEWS. Whatever.

In any case, here’s a report stating that two bizarre skeletons have been unearthed in a burial mound in a place called Stavropol Kra somewhere in Russia. One of the skeletons appears human with a goat-like head—i.e. it looks just like a mythological satyr. (No mention of whether or not a flute was found interred with the bones.) Also in the grave were the bones of a gigantic horse. Maybe the giant stallion and the satyr were pals when alive, and wanted to be buried together?
