Stalking Gas Mask Man Spotted
Something else to freak us out!
The mysterious figure said to roam a specific trail in the Western Swiss woods for a decade now has been caught on film for the first time.
"I came across him near the marches," said Le Matin, an amateur photographer who tracked him down. "I approached him up to a dozen metres away.
"He had a military cape, boots and an army gas mark – an antique type, I think. He measured more than 1.90m. He stared at me then turned his back on me and left in silence."
The man who is known locally as 'Le Loyon' wears camo gear and roams the woods daily.
Earlier this year local resident Marianne Descloux, told Le Matin that her run-in with him came in spring.
"It was a rainy Sunday," she said. "He had a cap, a dark cloak and his gas mask.
"What could possibly be going through his head? I don’t know, but it was unforgettable – and unpleasant. I hope I don’t run into him again."
A local farmer says that people are scared to travel to the woods now.
"Families simply won’t go into the forest any more," adding that Le Loyon had been seen regularly over 10 years. "No one here finds this story funny."
Well who would find a creepy man in a costume funny. Not even the Northhampton clown makes us laugh!
Though Le Loyon has never showed any agression to anyone that comes in his path, local police are keen to have a chat with him and sort things out once and for all.
