The Wild Hunt don’t take prisoners

If you go down to the woods today,
You’re in for a big surprise,
If you go down to the woods today,
You’d better close your eyes.

For every soul that wanders here,
Is doomed to darkness, death and fear,
Because the Hunt is out,
And today they’re here to taaake you.

A group of photographers visited some nearby woods to practice taking pictures in the dark. What they experienced was not something they will soon forget.

Surrounded by darkness amongst the trees, strange noises could be heard. At first they were ignored…normal parts of the woods. Then something laughed maniacally near by; a rustling in the bushes.

They looked around them only seeing the blackness of the woods and occasional glint from the stars in the sky. They took pictures with their flashes to light up the area around them. Sudden movement was seen and strange noises started all around them. Heavy breathing, soft growling, clicking and even a blood curdling scream.

You could hear their footfalls as they ran passed, so close but yet unseen. Cameras flashed everywhere trying to glimpse the creatures around them. The noises grew louder. They were surrounded. As the beings moved in for the kill a loud roar arose from the group before they and their target were gone.

Some members are still missing from that night. The Wild Hunt don’t take prisoners. You are either prey or you become part of the Hunt. If you see them about, try not to stare directly at them or you may become their next target.
