A ‘decapitated man’ who seemed to have had his head cut off by a garage door sparked a police response.
An officer from Greene County Sheriff’s Department arrived at the home in Tennessee with sirens shrieking.
But when he arrived, he found the horrid scene to be staged. It was a scary-realistic Halloween display, which the police are giving a round of applause.
The department posted a photo on Facebook and wrote: ‘ATTENTION EVERYONE!!! For those of you driving on Chuckey Pike in Greene County: THIS IS A HALLOWEEN DECORATION! Do NOT call 911 reporting a dead body. Instead, congratulate the homeowner on a great display.’
It went on to explain: ‘The call was given out as a “suspicious person lying in a driveway with bloody hand prints on the garage”. Officers responded lights/sirens until the first officer arrived to see this.’
It’s not the first time this year police have had to warn others to be careful of something fake. Because this is America.
Cops in North Carolina were asking residents not to shoot Bigfoot if they see him (or her).
It all kicked off after a group of hikers noticed something strange in the wooded area of McDowell County over the summer.
They said something threw rocks at them. Bigfoot enthusiasts claim light from glow sticks the group was carrying attracted the creature.
John Bruner inspected the next day, and wrote on Facebook group Bigfoot 911: ‘I turned on my headlamp and saw a large bi-pedal animal covered in hair.
‘Its face was solid black, no hair on it. The hair looked shaggy all over.
‘I was able to see details of the creature, like the face, and the hair was matted and stringy. The eyes were farther apart than human eyes.’
So here’s the thing: Turns out he did see something that looked like Bigfoot, but it was actually a man dressed in raccoon fur.
