Second Strange Being Sighted in Los Alamos!

on March 10, 2012 - 2:01pm

The second weird creature has been sighted in Los Alamos in as many weeks. "It" was sighted lurking around the Los Alamos Little Theater attempting to enter through a side door. “It” appeared to be a “Lovable Creature” but seemed to find English difficult.

Contact the Los Alamos Daily Post if you observe any unusual creatures roaming about town. Photo by TK Thompson/ladailypost.com
