Base: Malvern Hills, Worcestershire, England
Date/Time: June 20, 2005/2230 hours
Incident: I live in Malvern, which is a small town nestling at the foot of the Malvern Hills. The hills have always been a site of natural beauty, but recently sinister events have been taking place.
Locals have reported seeing vampires walking around the area. The general public are aware of the rumours as are local authorities, which tend to reject the sightings as being hoaxes or public bar fantasies.
I however was always inclined to keep an open mind, and on the evening of June the 20th I came to suspect that the local rumours were true.
I had been at work all day and when I arrived home I found the dog acting strangely. I thought it was just bored and wanted to get out, so I took it for a walk, with night approaching fast. We walked into the hills when my dog began to bark. I was going to turn home but out of the corner of my eye I saw a man carrying a long knife. I froze on the spot and my dog began growling and barking in terror. Although the man was over a hundred yards away, I could see that he looked wild and groggy and almost inhuman, like a stooping zombie. I ran home before I could find out what he was.
I need to know if what I saw could have been a vampire. I realize he could have been a drunk, but I'm not sure.
Comments from Dr. Pecos: I'm curious as to the earlier reference to locals seeing vampires in the area. On what basis have the locals decided that these were vampires? Has anyone gone missing? As for what you saw, I simply don't have enough information. Vampires tend not to appear in plain sight like that, but you never know. Keep us posted.
