A Canadian nature lover’s wildlife camera captured the disturbing moment a pair of near naked women held a “carcass-eating ritual” yards from her home after sundown.
Corinea Stanhope found a dead deer at the bottom of her garden in Powell River, British Columbia, while riding her horse, when she decided to set up a trail cam to see if it would attract other animals.
“There was a dead deer so me and my grandpa put up a trail camera to see if we could see animals and we got a bobcat [on camera], which was pretty cool,” she said.
Stanhope was shocked by what she saw when her grandpa showed her the footage the next day.
“I came the next day and grandpa said he’d got naked people on the camera and I said ‘no you didn’t. Bullsh*t,’ so he showed me,” she said.
Images from the cam show two figures with matted hair wearing only loincloths standing over the dead deer and appearing to eat parts of its body.
“They came ten minutes after sunset. They looked disheveled. It looks like they have wigs on. One looks like she has blonde hair underneath,” Stanhope said.
The women, with hair obscuring their faces, appear to squat down and reach for the rotted carcass before picking up a hoof and taking a bite.
“I don’t know what the heck was up with that. It really freaked us out, it’s not something you see every day,” she said.
“You can’t really tell from the photos but the hoof was brought right up to her mouth.”
“I don’t know if she was kissing it, smelling or eating it but to touch a decaying carcass like that makes me feel sick,” she continued. “The amount of bacteria that must have been on there. Maybe they were paying their respects but they were naked.”
“It really creeped me out because it’s only a two-minute walk from our house and I was concerned about them messing with my horses at night.”
Stanhope said locals have been claiming she captured images of witches or evil spirits and there are even rumors of a cult in her area.
“A lot of people mentioned skin walkers and wendigos,” she said. “There’s rumors around town about a cult that collects animal bones. I don’t know if it’s real or not.”
Stanhope said she’d noticed her horses in the past seemed “spooked and unnerved” around that area where the women were spotted.
“Some people have mentioned it since I posted the photos. A friend said they came across two people in the woods carrying some dead squirrels,” she claimed.
“The horses always get really spooked and unnerved around that area. I thought they imagined stuff at first so I didn’t think anything of it. Maybe I believe them now.”
In other news, Stanhope’s camera also spotted a bobcat near the carcass later.
Apparently this isn’t just stuff you see in Hollywood.
