Reporter This City's Nighttime Wildlife Cam Got Real Weird, Real Fast

Quote:
When police in Gardner, Kansas, received reports of a mountain lion in the city’s Celebration Park, they set up a couple of trail cameras at night to try and confirm the sightings.

They didn’t capture the majestic feline in action, but they did catch some, uh, other stuff.

“We now have another different concern,” the department wrote in a Facebook post Monday. “We are attempting to identify some of the wildlife and activity in these images.”

I expected the nightlife in Kansas to be pretty boring but this was something else altogether.

Obviously quite staged but funny nonetheless!

I was (probably mis)intrepreting overyonder as saying 'the police obviously set this whole thing up'. Obviously these are people in costumes on the camera.

Either way, I'll myself.

To be fair in most cases where people say a photo or a video is staged they mean it in the sense that whoever caught the footage also set up the shot.
