WITCHES could be stalking the streets of rural Wales – if calls to Dyfed Powys Police are to be believed.
The force, which covers Mid and West Wales, has received 86 reports of witches in the last five years.
The force’s police incident log reveals details of the calls. One caller reported “that one individual is a witch and had attended at the house to put salt around the bed”.
A caller in January last year claimed he had been fed a “fur ball” during a witchcraft ritual.
Following a call from Llanelli, police recorded: “Caller, who was drunk, who rang regarding a gang of witches who want to sacrifice him.”
Another call was a report of a “malicious communication: rumours that an individual’s mother is a witch”.
The details released to Wales on Sunday under the Freedom of Information Act have revealed the counties of Powys, Ceredigion, Carmarthenshire and Pembrokeshire are awash with reports of weird goings-on.
In addition to calls about witches in the past five years, the force has received one call about a werewolf, seven about vampires, 19 about UFOs, 13 about big cats, 73 reports of ghosts, 16 of zombies, 35 of demons, five regarding big foot sightings, 33 of monsters and 18 about wizards.
Haverfordwest appears to be the real hotbed of ghostly activity.
On the same day, one caller reported “that they had seen their father as a ghost”, while another call to the police was “regarding concern for safety – reporting that an individual is stating that ‘ghosts’ are going to kill them”.
