Report by Mac Tooney, Cool Creatures On The Run reporter for The Unbelievable Times Paper – 07/06/96
This unusual report comes to you today to tell you that there is a basiilik on the loose in inner city Birmingham. This is baffling because everyone believed these creatures to be extinct from 1583 and some believed they never existed at all. The basilisk was spotted near the national Sea Life Centre. It was seen entering the Sea Life Centre at 12.27pm and attempting to eat a penguin from there. The police have been called and are trying to contain it as we bring you this report. However, our latest update informs us that it has now escaped the police and run away towards The Bull Ring shopping centre area. Citizens are panicking like wildfire and the police are trying to contain this shocking situation. The whole city centre has been shut down.
The police are working hard to capture the dangerous creature. Until then it is recommended by the Prime Minister that all inhabitants of Birmingham should stay at home behind locked doors and make sure anyone with penguins as pets are to bring them indoors for safe keeping. I will bring you more reports when I have them. For now, sit tight and pray.
