Confirmed! NYC streets are haunted by the spirits of horses

Before the advent of the automobile, the streets in our large city’s were teaming with horses hauling cargo and passengers.
In those days horses frequently lost their lives due to accidents, over work, heat and exhaustion.
The death toll among these noble beasts of burden was frightening.
It is said that there is not one inch of NY city streets that had not been the scene of death for some unfortunate horse.
When you consider the thousands of miles of streets in NYC, that is an incredible number of horses.
Paranormal researchers have been investigating reports from local residents who claimed to have seen ghostly apparitions of horses walking the streets.
The National Reporter asked one of these witnesses to describe what he saw last summer on a hot calm July night around 3:00am.
“I couldn’t sleep because of the heat, so I went out on the stoop to smoke a cigarette.” He said. “As I sat there I could swear there was something big moving along the street right in front of me.
It was the damnedest thing, I could just barely make out the shape.
But from what I could tell,..it was a horse.”
Other witnesses have similar story’s of barely visible horses walking past them on the streets late at night, some have even claimed to have seen their ghostly outlines in broad daylight.
But whether or not any of these story’s are true can not be verified nor should they be considered absolute proof that such things exist.
The National Reporter Contacted the Canadian Academy of Paranormal Research and Investigation ( CAPRI ) and invited them to investigate the strange occurences on the streets of NYC.
On their very first day they made remarkable findings with their special ultra violet paranormal imaging cameras.
In broad daylight they were able to capture the image of a ghost horse walking through a group of bicyclists and joggers.
The people on the street were completely oblivious to its presence.
When the image was take, CAPRI technician Gus Fowler said he had detected a strong presence of ghostly residue right in front of him.
His hand-held ectoplasmic microspore monitor was clicking like crazy he said.
Then it went through the roof for some reason, he had no idea why until the film was developed and he saw it for himself.
“Well, I’ll be,.. that’s why my detector went crazy. A horse ghost walked right behind me.” He said.
Over the next few days the CAPRI investigators staked out streets that were very busy in the 1800’s and had a high number of horse deaths.
On their second day they noticed a group of mounted police officers getting ready to ride out to central park for their patrol.
One of the horses was acting nervous and kept swinging its head around looking back.
The officer kept telling his mount to calm down, he had no idea why he was acting so skitterish.
CAPRI quickly snapped two photo’s of the scene.
On normal view and one enhanced by their special equipment.
What they saw when the photo’s were developed was absolutely astonishing.
The ghost horse was trying desperately to mount the police officers horse.
“I guess instincts from life remain after death, at least they do for horses.” Gus Fowler said.
What was really perplexing to the CAPRI investigators was the large amount of ghostly horse manure piled in the streets.
In some places it was neck-deep.
“It’s a good thing its ghost poo and no one can see it, feel it or smell it.” Camera technician Mary Albright said.
She pointed to a large crowd of people standing on the corner on the other side of the street from us waiting for the light to turn green so they could walk across.
“The horse ghost manure is over their heads right there, it’s about nine feet deep.” She said. “It’s kind of funny because they have no idea.”
Miss Albright swung her camera around and took two quick photo’s of a young lady crossing the street right in front of us.
She turned and smiled when she saw the flash of the camera, although she seemed a bit confused as to why we were chuckling.
There was a rather huge pile of ghost horse manure directly in front of her in the cross walk.
“What’s so funny?” she asked, smiling.
We both smiled back and told her to be carefull where she is walking.
The girl turned around and gazed at the cross walk for a few seconds and shrugged her shoulders.
Then she plodded right through the big pile of manure completely unaware of it.
The pile was so massive it reached her knee’s.
Over the next few days, CAPRI was able to document the presence of hundreds of ghost horses and massive deposits of the ghostly manure they leave behind.
Although it poses no health threat because it is just ectoplasma, CAPRI felt the need to document it as well.
The ghost horses seemed to prefer one large open area frequented by joggers, pedestrians and bicyclists for some unknown reason.
It was quite a mess, fortunately no one knew about it.
The National Reporter stayed on the scene with CAPRI as they snapped hundreds of Photos in this particular area.
“If these people knew what they were walking in there would be a riot.” Gus Fowler said.
Mary Albright laughed out loud when she saw two women joggers sitting right on top of a huge pile of fresh horse ghost manure sipping spring water and talking.
Right behind them no more than three feet away, a ghost horse was busy unloading a seemingly endless stream of urine on the ground.
It was splattering right in the women’s faces and yet they were totally oblivious to it.
If you or anyone you know are interested in this phenomenon, the CAPRI researchers are still on location and welcome the public to view their research.
