Strange story from the AP yesterday out of Little Rock Arkansas.
A guard who reported a security breach inside the nation’s second-largest chemical weapons depot may have mistaken wildlife for human intruders, authorities said Thursday.
The commander of the Pine Bluff Arsenal said officials combed the area but found no footprints or other evidence of human intruders.
“There’s no doubt in my mind that the officer saw something, but it wasn’t human,” Col. Brian S. Lindamood said. “At this time I have no idea what it could be.”
“He reported that he saw three individuals on foot inside the (secure area) and when he approached in his vehicle they ran into the woods,” he said.
Lindamood said the guard was between 70 and 165 feet away at the time and the area was brightly lit. The guard won’t face any disciplinary measures.

So what are we talking here? An army guard that was patrolling inside a 500-acre secured section of the chemical weapens aresenal. We’re talking nerve gas here, so it would have to be pretty damed secure…at least you would hope so.
He was anywhere from 70 to 165 feet away from three non-human individuals on foot, in a brightly lit area no less. If they were animals, they would have had to have been on foot, wouldn’t they?
The last I knew, animals didn’t have cars. Bears? The only bears I’ve seen on bikes was in the circus.
He was in a vehicle and three non-human individuals managed to elude him and ran into the woods?
It seems like he would have been able to distinguish between humans and animals at 70 to 165 feet in brightly lit conditions, doesn’t it?
It wasn’t human, but they don’t know what it could be.
Hmmmm, I wonder?
Nah! It couldn’t have been.
What do the Cryptomundo readers think? Government conspiracy to cover up Bigfoot? Or terrorism? Or something else?
