Mystery footprints appear on frost-covered car

Who or what was responsible for leaving these prints ? Image Credit: Twitter / Alicia Smith
Alicia Smith from Grimsby, England was left scratching her head when she found her car covered in footprints.
The phenomenon was first discovered at around 10:30am on December 31st after a period of particularly cold weather had left her car coated in a thin layer of ice.

The vaguely human-like prints, which went from the front of the car, all the way up the windscreen and across the roof, were not only peculiarly shaped, but also seemed to have only four toes.

"We'd never seen anything like this before, it was very odd," she said.

"They're a strange shape and only have four toes, and don't quite look human. I'm not sure if it was a child. And why would someone be barefoot in this weather ?"

"The car was parked outside our house all night so whatever did it must have been just outside."

"We didn't hear or see anything."

As things stand, no definitive explanation for the strange footprints has been found.

We have a winner! I have no idea if someone pranked smith or she needed some attention but yeah, 100% hoax, except for that one cat, his name sounds like a mediocre pizza joint he will say likely an unknown creature.

That's 100% what it is. That's why they all have a melted patch around them, whoever did it held their hand there long enough to melt through the frost. You can also tell they really had to reach to get the one on the roof, it has scuff marks leading up to it. It's sad when such a simple prank is considered news.

Just silly. Reminds me of this: �Ray: Symmetrical book stacking. Just like the Philadelphia mass turbulence of 1947. Peter: You're right, no human being would stack books like this.�

This is too funny! I used to prank my friend every day making child footsteps with a dollar store step stone in the shape of a foot , and put drops of Fanta, pretending kids are peeing on his car

Funny how they made three left footprints and only the one right foot. Maybe it was a skipping house goblin? Dobby out looking for a sock.
