If You Think Witch Hunts Are A Thing Of The Past, You Haven’t Heard Of Carole Compton

If You Think Witch Hunts Are A Thing Of The Past, You Haven’t Heard Of Carole Compton

Blog
When you think of witches, the Salem trials are likely among the first things to pop into your mind. But what if I told you that witch hunts aren't exactly limited to the distant past? That's right -- in the 1980s, a Scottish nanny named Carole Compton was accused of practicing witchcraft after a series of strange occurrences caused her employers to suspect that something wasn't right about her. googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display('VN_PG_DCBP_ATF'); }); Compton's story is so bizarre, in fact, that she was even put on trial for that same accusation. After meeting and falling in love with an Italian man in 1982, Compton decided to move from Scotland to Italy so she could be closer to him. She quickly found work as a live-in nanny for the Ricci family. That's w...

Taxidermy Is Already Creepy Enough Without These 30 Bizarre Creations

googletag.cmd.push(function() { googletag.display('VN_PG_DTBT_ATF'); }); I don't like taxidermy one bit -- it really freaks me out. Just knowing that the stuffed creatures were once living, breathing animals is very unsettling to me. No matter how accurately portrayed they are, they are still pretty disturbing. It makes me imagine the same thing happening to me when I die, and that's a horrifying mental image. But the critters you're about to see are on an entirely different level -- and not in a good way. They'll make you wonder if the people who made them have ever seen real animals at all. Prepare yourselves. This isn't going to be pretty. 1. This is just plain terrifying. 2. Wait -- just kidding. THIS is. 3. Imagine waking up to thi...

Trash Human Isn’t Allowed To Care For Horses After What She Did To This One

Blog
After seeing the way this woman from Kidderminster, Worcestershire, treated a horse named Thor, my blood is boiling. The only consolation? She was charged with two counts of animal cruelty earlier this week. Twenty-two-year-old Charlotte McPherson came under investigation last March after riding Thor at a public event. Although she made an effort to conceal his abused and weakened condition, horse-lovers on social media spotted that something suspicious right away. Once RSPCA inspector Suzi Smith had a look, she took Thor into her custody and notified the courts. Now, McPherson has been charged with two counts of animal cruelty, forcing her to pay fines and complete community service. In addition, she won't be able to keep or...

The city of Triora, Italy, is as beautiful as a painting. Tourists flock there from all over the world each year to marvel at the stunning region's medieval architecture and picturesque hillsides. Hidden within the confines of this fairytale city, however, is a history of violence and paranoia that makes the Salem witch trials seem like child's play. In 1587, particularly bad weather led to a massive crop failure and subsequent famine. Instead of blaming the climate, however, townspeople decided to blame the presence of witches. Wikipedia The local government called in the Inquisitor of Genoa and Albenga, along with Priest Girolamo del Pozzo, in order to substantiate the city's claims of witchcraft...and that's exactly what they did. ...

This Video From 2013 Might Just Be Conclusive Evidence Of The So-Called Skunk Ape

Blog
In the world of cryptozoology, there is perhaps no bigger mystery than the one surrounding the Skunk Ape. The Skunk Ape is Florida's answer to Bigfoot. Those who have seen it say that the creature is a humanoid ape with a strong, repulsive smell akin to, as one witness pointed out, "a dog that hasn't been bathed in a year and suddenly gets rained on."Sightings of the Skunk Ape were first reported during the 1970s and have persisted with some regularity. The only problem is that people rarely document these encounters. That's why this video is so interesting. In it, you can see a group of drivers pulled over to watch something large chase a smaller creature across a field. Could this be footage of the real Skunk Ape? (via Unexplained Mysteries)I think the idea of such a beast on its ...

Congenital genu recurvatum, or knee hyperextension, is a rare condition that occurs once in every 100,000 live births. People with this condition, which appears more often in women, are born with a deformity in their knee joints. Their kneecaps are dislocated to the side, causing them to bend backwards to varying degrees. While some are still able to walk upright, others are forced to use their hands as an extra pair of feet. The first documented accounts of the deformity go back to the early 1800s. In 1886, a girl named Ella Harper was featured in a circus and called "The Camel Girl" because she walked on all fours. Wikipedia The condition has been associated with injur...
