“Mythological Creature” Warning

Posted by: Loren Coleman on June 7th, 2012

The Journal Register, covering northern Macomb & St. Clair counties, Michigan, carried the following Bay Area Police report for June 6, 2012:

Mysterious note warns of mythological creature

A rock was thrown at a Chesterfield resident’s porch May 25 with a note attached that said a mythological creature was in the woods nearby and that children should be made aware of the danger, according to a police report. The officers were unable to locate any suspects, or mythological creatures.

Couldn’t the note writer have mentioned, at least, the appearance of the reported “mythological creature”?

Chesterfield Township is home to Lionel, LLC; maker of Lionel Trains. In 2002, they moved their manufacturing out of the United States to China, however Chesterfield continues to be the headquarters of their corporate offices, and non-manufacturing support functions. Chesterfield is found on M-3 from 23 Mile Road to 22 Mile Road. Both communities are located in Macomb County, Michigan.

    I lived in Chesterfield for several years. Theres not much in the way of suitable woods around for “mythological creatures” to dwell…

  2. Hapa responds:

    A Mythological creature on the loose? I know it well. It is so unnatural, so abnormal, that the news media dare not say its name, or suffer a loss of credibility. Both pseudo-skeptics and all-out-everything-believers acknowledge that it is as unlikely as the one eyed one horned flying purple people eater or the wild Haggis, but even these comparisons fall short of its ludicrous aspect.

    Oh, Hapa, I love you, you literally brought tears to my eyes, although you did completely ruin my bathsalts joke.

    I decided to use Google Maps to see what Diablo meant, he is absolutely right, there isn’t enough trees there to hide anything bigger than a squirrel. It’s all in little patches of trees splattered here and there, certainly nothing resembling a forest. More along the lines of a nice sized park.
