Creepy Gnome terrorises town in General Guemes, Salta, Argentina | The Sun

By | March 12, 2008

Teenager Jose Alvarez – who filmed the gnome – yesterday told national newspaper El Tribuno that they caught the creature while larking about in their hometown of General Guemes, in the province of Salta, Argentina. He said: “We were chatting about our last fishing trip. It was one in the morning. “I began to film a bit with my mobile phone while the others were chatting and joking. “Suddenly we heard something – a weird noise as if someone was throwing stones. “We looked to one side and saw that the grass was moving. To begin with we thought it was a dog but when we saw this gnome-like figure begin to emerge we were really afraid.” Jose added that other locals had come forward to say they had spotted the gnome. He said: “This is no joke. We are still afraid to go out – just like everyone else in the neighbourhood now. “One of my friends was so scared after seeing that thing that we had to take him to the hospital.”

    I’m sticking with the puppet theory. Look closely and you can see the strings. Mystique lost. Amusing though.
