    The Beast of Gevaudan

    This article about a new "giant lion" fossil seems interesting to me because it seems to match descriptions of the Beast quite well, in that it had both lion overall shape and a hyena-style jaw: https://www.bbc.com/news/world-africa-47976205

    I couldn't find a previous thread, but it doubtless exists. But in the odd case that it doesn't: Surprise Spuds: Mysterious Mashed Potatoes Abound https://www.myhighplains.com/weird-news/surprise-spuds-mysterious-mashed-potatoes-abound/1929650883

    Kids Being Given Drugs Instead Of Sweets!

    This is weird - in Georgia, there has been some real drug laced sweets passed about that resulted in people being sent to the hospital: https://www.ajc.com/news/local-education/breaking-students-face-discipline-edible-drug-case-fulton-county-school/bsuknsE3HYHQiIs5iSQXpN/

    Are There Reports Of Ghosts Hurting Or Sexually Assaulting People?

    Here is one I hadn't seen before (and I couldn't find previously linked on FTMB)... babycam footage of a baby monitor showing something unitentifiable walking by, and the infant seems to see it. Later she has a mark on her face that is inexplicable:

    Strange Deaths

    This happened not far from me. Two brothers (in their 40's) were trying to dislodge their drone from a tree in their house and decided to use a metal pole. Due to mishap, the pole hit a power line and it electrocuted one to death and injured the other...

    Missing Persons

    Do we have a general thread for missing persons? If not, we should. In any case, I came across this and it seemed odd. Internet personality Hannah Minx was "net famous", made a lowbudget horror film, then disappeared from the face of the earth. DREAD CENTRAL is where I first found the story...
