Holy nightmare fuel, Batman! The town of Gastonia, North Carolina, is being haunted by a cloaked figure who keeps leaving raw meat on a local playground. While it is probably just some LARPer playing a prank, it is definitely creepy enough to get social media buzzing.

Fine, North Carolina. I’ll take my Cloaked Meat Enthusiast Convention elsewhere.

The police have begun investigations, meeting with the manager of the Hudson Woods Apartment complex, where the meat druid was allegedly spotted. However, police have been so far unable to confirm anything and are suspicious that the whole ordeal is a hoax. Police spokesperson Donna Lahser spoke to WBTV Fox Carolina about the hooded figure:
“It could have come from anywhere,” she said. “We don’t know if this is some bogus prank someone is playing.”
Whether the individual is actually taking part in a satanic ritual or is just punking an entire community, this situation is undoubtably strange. Whether the mystery is ever solved, don’t forget to lock your doors tonight. Just in case. (Via Fox Carolina and The Gaston Gazette)
