Living Next to Werewolves

We have a neighbor that we never see on one side of us. Two doors down there's the drunk guy that watches TV in his garage all night, and then right next to us we have the house with the weird Emo girl. She's gone through her phases over the past few years as she's gone from middle to high school, but she's always had the hair over her eyes and the black clothes. This past year though she's had more and more friends over. There's always this weird little gang of kids in her yard or out in the park across the street. When the other kids started showing up, we started noticing the TAILS.

*insert the one good picture I had of the weird kid with the tail that I can no longer find here*

Yes. Tails. These kids have these fake animal tails and crap hanging off the back of their pants. About 2 weeks ago there was a little gang of 8 of them outside and 6 of them had these weird tails on. We just HAVEN'T understood it.

Well then John came across a news story (it actually aired a few months ago, but I guess we didn't catch it)



Yep. They're werewolves. They're a pack of kids that wear tails and believe they're werewolves.

My favorite part of the story is: "We're not a gang at all. Gangs are like posers. They just want attention, that's why they go along tagging stuff. The pack? We're a family. We go to each other for our problems."

Really? A tail isn't going to get you attention? Fangs and creepy contacts aren't going to get you attention? Uh huh....teenagers.....

Edited to add (and not that this has even posted yet), there was a news story tonight on the Wolf Packs. Appearantly there were 2 suicides in one of the packs recently and there were concerns that there may have been a suicide pact made within the group. The story tonight (Thursday) was about parents concerned about sending their kids to school out of fear of violence from the packs.

Yep. Crazy. Personally I think if there are suicides within a group like this, one that refers to themselves as a pack, a family, a group that helps eachother out only to have deaths within that group, those kids probably need help. Who knows what else is going on within those groups (the leader of the group mentioned in most of the news stories is also linked to killing a dog)? Parents should probably be concerned that their kids feel like they need to find their family elsewhere and not condone their "self expression."

  1. I didn't read the news story, but is this Twilight related? Either way, it's just weird.

  2. Meredith - the kids haven't said anything about Twilight. The reporters mentioned a link, but also mentioned other werewolf movies.

  3. I remember seeing this on the news a while back! I can't remember if it was on a Canadian station, but that's just ridiculous.

    I'm more than certain that you can be part of a "pack without wearing tails and thinking of yourself as a werewolf.

    These kids need help.

  5. Uh...weird! Too much Twilight for them. This kind of stuff is what scares me to have kids.
