Was it a case of paw-ranormal activity?
Australia’s Jake DeMarco was shaken after a bone-chilling CCTV clip appeared to show his pet puppy Ryder playing with a ghost dog in his backyard in Melbourne.
The “Pet Sematary” provocative video, rebroadcast by the Caters News Agency, shows Ryder chasing a transparent white dog around outside in a fenced area. The two canines can be seen playfully frolicking by a water tower before Ryder’s alleged phantom friend whizzes out of the frame.
DeMarco, 38, told Caters he was particularly shocked to see the other dog in his backyard – which is reportedly secured by a locked high fence, and therefore impossible for a dog to scale.
When the frightened father of two saw the eerie footage, he ran outside to try to spot Ryder’s paranormal apparent playmate. But by that time, the dog “Casper” had reportedly disappeared.
This is not the first time an alleged spectral device has been captured on camera.
In February, urban explorers received the scare of their lives after encountering a mysterious disappearing figure while searching a notorious, abandoned nursing home in the UK.
