Talk about a bloody mess. This one is a rather “Fortean” incident.
A highway in upstate New York was shut down after being covered with chunks of rotting meat earlier this week, creating quite a stink for drivers. The strangest part? Officials aren’t quite sure where the offending flesh came from.
Dozens of chunks of raw meat littered a road in Queensbury on Thursday, covering passing cars in stinking gore as they traveled through the town about 60 miles from Albany, The Post-Star Glens Falls reported. Aviation Road was closed for about 2 hours while the state Department of Transportation cleaned up. But drivers were still dealing with the disgusting aftermath on Friday.
Some say the meat was beef, others claim it was chicken fat. Regardless of what the meat was the police believes the meat is from a farm or slaughterhouse and fell off the truck while in transit. However, no one has stepped forward to claim the misplaced meat.
Was it an animal hit on the highway?
Did it fall from the sky? There is no indication of that in this case. However, rains of flesh, unbelievably, have been reported before. Usually the rain is red from pollen, or parts of birds or their prey they have been carrying.
Strange things indeed.
