Shapeshifting Won't Save You

Thank goodness for the brave vigilantes of Nigeria! When witches attempted to steal a Mazda 323 they raced into action, chasing off one of the witches and capturing the other who had transformed into a goat. The goat was turned over to the Nigerian police and is currently in custody.

"The group of vigilante men came to report that while they were on patrol they saw some hoodlums attempting to rob a car. They pursued them. However one of them escaped while the other turned into a goat," Kwara state police spokesman Tunde Mohammed told Reuters by telephone.

The police spokesman was deliberately vague about the case, no doubt trying to avoid a widespread panic over a possible ring of goat-transforming car thieves.

"We cannot confirm the story, but the goat is in our custody. We cannot base our information on something mystical. It is something that has to be proved scientifically, that a human being turned into a goat," he said.

Paranormal-powered criminals in Nigeria beware! The word is out, and if you are spotted trying to steal a car even shapeshifting won't save you from these witchfighting heroes on patrol.
