Imagine bumping into him alone on an isolated trail in the Alps. Via the Australian:
Known only as ‘Le Leyon’, the mysterious stranger has puzzled locals and authorities in Switzerland for years. He always wears the same outfit and nobody has ever seen his face. The mystery surrounding his identity and purpose in the area has been the subject of much concern and intrigue.
“He had a military cape, boots and an army gas mask – an antique type, I think,” said an unnamed local photographer who managed to snap a photograph of the man.
Some area residents have also expressed fears over the man’s intentions. “He came out of the woods with his military clothes,” said one woman. “We saw neither his face nor his eyes behind his big dark gas mask.”
Authorities are currently attempting to track down and identify the man but have so far come up empty.
