The wild fires had prepared the site, El Nino rains brought the mudslides, and the hillsides gave up some of their secrets. Two skulls and a femur were found by some mountain hikers. The police said they will open their missing persons files. The call came in to the Sheriff’s Station on a quiet Sunday morning. Another hiker had spotted something. The deputy dispatched to the scene called it in, I think this is a job for Animal Control. Yeah, it looks like a tentacle. Wait a minute, it’s moving! The dispatcher heard a muffled scream and then nothing.
