Hairy creature sighting disturbs classes

A school in Botswana was forced to close after pupils reported sighting a small hairy humanoid creature.

The bizarre series of events started around 12 noon when a number of students reported 'a black little hairy creature which resembled a human being.' While none of the teachers saw anything, the sighting caused mass panic among the pupils. Some of the children were so convinced by what they'd witnessed that as many as 10 ended up being treated for shock at a local clinic.

"We will be holding prayers in the school soon after meeting parents and chiefs but for now we had asked for professional councillors to help," said regional eduction director Acro Maseko. One of the teachers put the incident down to mass hysteria induced by the stresses of upcoming exams.

"Teachers at Mathiba Primary School in Maun had to abruptly end classes last week Friday after students reported seeing a hairy little creature."

I think the strangest thing here is their reaction. If I saw a hairy creature I would be intrigued, I wouldn't scream cry and faint at the slightest sight of it.

From the article: (Emphasis added) "While none of the teachers saw anything, the sighting caused mass panic among the pupils" Need anything more be said? This killed its credence, in my opinion. Kids say things, and when one said that he/she saw something, it probably started a wildfire of hysteria.

Children are highly impressionable. One probably saw an animal got scared and made something up and the rest just followed along. Not lying just impressionable kids.

. i'm kinda struggling here to come up with a religion that bans the use of mobile phones?? the only things I can come up with are- the amish. luddites. fish. (can't work the buttons) ICU nurses. telepaths. airline pilots. neanderthals. you wanna help me out here....?! :-) Cell phones are banned at all schools here. They are a distraction so kids are not allowed to have them in school. Maybe that's what he meant. Otherwise a religion that controls it's followers so closely that they can't have a cell phone is a cult... but aren't they all?
