A Head in the Woods

I was walking deep in the woods near my house, like I usually do. I had been walking for a while and I decided to stop and take a short break. I was talking on the phone with my boyfriend and I wasn’t really paying much attention to my surroundings. Then, I saw it. A deer head. Or maybe that’s a doe head. No body. No eyeballs.

I suddenly let out a shriek of fright when I finally noticed it. I want to know why there was no body. How did that head get there? I got out of there pretty quickly because I love horror movies, right? And my mind started going places I didn’t want it going.

I thought maybe there was some kind of pagan ritual. Or I guess maybe some wild hogs had something to do with it. Regardless, I got out of there. It doesn’t help that the woods tend to have a scary effect on me anyway, without random animal heads.

Reminds me of the time I was walking on a trail with my friend. We stumbled upon a cat that had been hung on a tree by it’s neck. Were there witches? Or just some evil pranksters?

Has anyone ever stumbled upon some dead freaky sight like this? Well, I’m sure I wont be brave enough to go to that spot for a while.
