Serbian council issues vampire warning

Sales of garlic have skyrocketed after an alert was issued to warn people about a vampire on the loose.

The bizarre warning was prompted by the collapse of an old ruined mill which is believed to be the final resting place of famous vampire Sava Savanovic. The family who owned the mill had been too frightened to carry out repairs because they believed the disturbance would wake up the vampire sleeping within. Now that the building has fallen down completely locals have become convinced that Savanovic is free once again.

"People are worried, everybody knows the legend of this vampire and the thought that he is now homeless and looking for somewhere else and possibly other victims is terrifying people," said the local mayor. Residents have been reminded to place garlic around their doors and place a Holy cross in every room to help ward off a visit.

"Sales of garlic are booming in western Serbia after the local council issued a public health warning that a vampire was on the loose."

I support vampires from ethnographic point of view. Following trail of their stories though centuries and cultures can be very interesting and can lead you to endless number of other, seemingly unrelated discoveries. (For example, you can clearly see what tribe came from which area based on variation of a vampire they brought along.) And that’s about it. I had mind so open it almost fell out, and I believe in every... [More]

I hear yeah there is a LOT of vampire dare I say crap in the media these days, and it seems like everyone has there own version of what a vampire should be. I can see why this monster is so famous and theres all of this hoopla over it. I cant stand the vampires as a sex symbol thing thats where I draw the LINE.

This Sava Savanovic, if he is an authentic legend what is his story? Is he actually more well known there than Arnod Paole?
