A mob of leprechauns reportedly carried out a vicious attack in the city of Seattle.
The victim of the attack claims a group of leprechauns beat him up in a Belltown area bar for dancing with the wrong girl. The police arrived to the bar to find the man covered in blood and screaming in pain.
When the officers asked him who had attacked him he said “It was a bunch of leprechauns.”
A witness at the scene confirmed a group of men beat him up.
The victim of the attack was taken to Harborview Medical Center with multiple head injuries and cuts and bruises to his face, back, knuckles and elbows.
The police have been unable to find the leprechauns involved.
This offbeat story has spread across news publications and websites like wildfire. By Friday afternoon the story was featured on BreakingNews.ie, Gawker, and on Downtown Seattle Komo. After weeks of media fixation on the “Zombie Apocalypse” fueled by the synthetic drug “bath salts” it seems the media are becoming obsessed with this leprechauns.
Gawker’s reporter stated “Following the recent proliferation of zombie-related news stories, it appears America has now moved on to attacks by other fantastical characters.”
They joked “The leprechauns have yet to be apprehended. Be vigilant all ye travelers.”
The Daily Mail took it even further saying “Just as the Zombie threat appears to finally be lifting it seems America could be at the mercy of an even deadlier menace.”
While obviously the leprechaun frenzy in Seattle is far less serious that the horrendous crimes committed under the influence of “bath salts” the media’s reaction to this Seattle man’s claims is something to behold.
