Home security footage from one Cape Coral home had a neighborhood looking for answers, but when they got one it wasn’t what they expected.
Security footage from inside a lanai from a home near Mohawk Parkway and Chiquita Boulevard on March 24th features a white figure appearing to move back and forth outside the lanai. Loud screeching could also be heard multiple times on the tape.
Neighbors said the sound and white mass were caught on camera at least twice within two weeks.
Many believe the figure caught on camera could have been a bear, bobcat, alligator, or even a “ghost.”
Joe and Cindy Welch said their neighbors alerted them of the issue and asked Joe to check out the aftermath following the first incident.
“He went over to see if there was any creatures, any paw prints or anything,” said Joe’s wife, Cindy. “We waited another week before the monster came back, or the night creature.”
We asked Florida Fish and Wildlife if they could identify what animal the sound came from but said they couldn’t identify it.
When the owner heard the sound again Thursday around 4 a.m., he immediately called the Cape Coral Police Department.
Cape PD can be seen on Joe and Cindy’s trail camera footage walking in the backyard and quickly being sprayed by the homeowner’s sprinkler system.
“They figured out it was a sprinkler,” Joe said with a chuckle.
After speaking with the homeowner, neighbors believe his sprinkler system was responsible for the alien-like sounds and for the white ”ghost” like figure outside the lanai.
While many in the area agree with the police about the sound coming from sprinklers, some are still skeptical the sound isn’t coming from a nearby animal.
“That one picture looks like there are some eyes in it,” Cindy says. [NBC]
I am kind of sceptical too… What is the source of this mysterious noise?
