MYSTERIOUS ANIMAL ATTACK AT LANG MUSEUM
Chaos and Confusion Reign, Animal Yet to be Identified or Found
by Celery Kendrick
The Lang Museum was closed yesterday after an intern was allegedly attacked inside the building by some kind of wild animal. 19 year old Devon Hawkins was taken Smithdale Central Hospital with severe bite wounds after the incident at approximately 10am. The animal, which Hawkins describes as being either a dog or a wolf, was in a new exhibit of ancient Chinese art from the Qin Dynasty, the first Dynasty of Imperial China. Hawkins had managed to escape the attack and sounded the alarm, causing the building’s security system to seal the exhibit, locking the animal inside. Medical experts who examined his wounds have confirmed that they are characteristic of attacks from some kind of canine.
Thus began a series of mysterious events that have left local authorities baffled. Soon after police and Animal Control officers arrived on the scene to clear the building and surrounding area members of an FBI task force also came and assumed jurisdiction, ordering all local law enforcement to leave the building. Soon after that, the sound of gunfire was reported to have come from inside. No more was seen of this team of FBI agents, even by police who had the building surrounded, save for one woman in the group who left the museum on her own and approached this reporter to convey a number of outlandish stories about what went on inside. (Editor’s Note: The nature of this woman’s claims is far too fantastical to be repeated in a legitimate news source such as this publication.)
It wasn’t until later that afternoon that five additional staff members of the museum came out of the building. They where evidently unconscious for several hours starting at the time of the incident for reasons unknown. They have been examined and determined to be in otherwise perfect health. They had been in the process of taking final inventory of the Qin exhibit that morning. None report witnessing anything like the the attacking animal, which was never retrieved and no trace of it could be found.
Of the artifacts of the exhibit itself, one was severely damaged and one has gone missing. A priceless 6’ by 10’ mural of a dragon was found riddled with bullets. The missing piece is a bronze sculpture of a two headed dog that is unremarkable asside from its historical significance.
