Vampires Exist, Says English Cryptozoologist
[Original headline: Fictional theory set to bite the dust]
[!jd01.jpg] Vampires are fact not fiction and they could be living in
a street near you.
Jon Downs, of the Exeter Strange Phenomena Group, believes that there
are vampires living across the West Country.
'There are vampiric entities in the South West, although they're not
the sort that Buffy the Vampire Slayer would recognise,' he said.
Forget the tall, cloaked man with the swept-back hair, Jon believes
that the vampires exist in various forms, possibly as animals.
'There are unexplained attacks on domestic livestock that could be put
down to vampires,' he said.
'People often think of them as men in long black coats, but that image
comes from Victorian times.'
Jon cites an incident at Newquay Zoo in 1978 as possible evidence of
the vampires' existence.
Geese and swans were allegedly found slaughtered and two wallabies
were discovered, decapitated and drained of blood.
'They were found on raked sand and the strange thing was, their bodies
were drained of blood but no blood was found on the sand around them,'
He also quotes author Theo Brown, who died about ten years ago after
writing Tales From A Dartmoor Village, featuring sheep which were
found with puncture marks on their necks.
But Jon concedes that most so-called mysterious deaths can be
attributed to the living and not the living dead.
'99 times out of 100 you can put it down to a sick human being, often
someone who has taken too many drugs,' he said.
