The pair of werewolves, which escaped from Hitchcock Zoo (Eureka Springs, AR) last week were recaptured today. After a merry chase following a trail of dead livestock it ended this morning when the werewolves (Janie Lee & Herbert) broke into a chicken barn in Fayetteville, Arkansas.
Chicken barn owner, Clyde Smitherton, reported four hundred dead chickens and over five thousand dollars worth of damage to his state-the-art pens and feeding equipment. Clyde said officials from the zoo refused to speak with him.
I contacted the zoo director, Myrtle Tittlebottom, this morning.
~ Phone conversation with Myrtle ~
Jodie: Good morning, Mrs. Tittlebottom.
Myrtle: If this is a reporter, I'm hanging up.
Jodie: Mrs. Tittlebottom, my readers want to know if Hitchcock zoo is going to compensate Clyde for his dead chickens, damage to his property, and lost revenue.
Myrtle: None of your business.
Jodie: What about all the livestock the werewolves killed this week? There have been reports of mutilated and dead carcasses across northeastern Arkansas.
Myrtle: Stupid %$#^ A$$ reporters!
