Disinfonaut Lee Brickley wrote to tell us of paranormal porcine phenomena in his neck of the woods.
The whistleblower, who has asked not to be found, said: “He told me when he was stationed on Cannock Chase, he and some others had been tasked with spreading rumours around the local area about a human/pig hybrid on the loose in the woods.
“He said this was a known military tactic for keeping civilians away from army occupied areas.”
Yet the pig-man is still being seen, with Lee receiving reports on a weekly basis, belying claims the army was simply telling porkies. If he’s not real, then there’s an extremely ugly individual out there.
‘Claire’ is the latest to encounter the half-man, half-ham creature.
In an email to the author she said: “Kneeling down in the dirt was what looked like a man, wearing trousers, a blazer, but no shirt. His face was totally deformed and I can almost certainly say he had a snout.”
