Local Sheriff Reports He's Never Seen Anything Like This

Local Sheriff Henry Cooper reported
Wednesday that in 22 years of police work, he's never seen anything like this.

"I tell you, I've been a cop for 35 years now, and I've seen some pretty strange things," recounted Cooper, the sheriff of Wyoming's tiny Hot Springs County. "But I tell ya, I never seen anything quite like this."

Several sheriff's deputies at the scene of the incident agreed that they, too, had never seen anything quite like this.

"Oh, no, I seen some things, but nothing like this," agreed Deputy Tom Melhuse when questioned by reporters.
He added that he'd been in law enforcement for twelve years.

"Yes sir, definitely a first for me," continued Sheriff Cooper.

Captain John Gillespie, who is one day from retirement, announced that he "saw something like this back in, oh it must've been '88, but certainly not since then. Nope, not since then."
