Among the complaints received over the past three years is one from a Cheltenham man who accused a taxi driver of transforming into a werewolf — and hitting on his wife. A report of a "pile of stones in shapes of human shape" found in the Forest of Dean aroused suspicion of witchery, as did a complaint from a Stroud local who phoned police to say a "coven of witches" were controlling a satellite over his home and poisoning him.
Elsewhere, a woman accused her ex-boyfriend of witchcraft (we've all been there) and a young boy turned himself in as a wizard. According to sources, the calls — which were revealed through a Freedom of Information request — were not Halloween-related.
While it seems that the haunted residents are happy to call the police for help, a local supernatural society has volunteered to step up their investigations in the area. (No word on whether they wear matching jumpsuits and drive around in a converted ambulance.)
Okay, so this could easily be a belated-Halloween hoax, but really, what is going on here? We put in a call to the Gloucestershire Constabulary to confirm these reports, but have yet to receive an official statement. We will, obviously, keep you posted of any Teen Wolf sightings.
