    Rumored Unicorn Sighting Reported In Don Valley

    Glimpse of mythical creature caught on video by local birdwatcher, Toronto residents encouraged to call hotline with other sightings

    October 04, 2010 @ 11:30AM

    Toronto, ON - Amateur video depicting what could be one of the most elusive legendary creatures, the unicorn, has been captured on film by a Toronto resident. The video in question, shot by a local birdwatcher, Peter Hickey-Jones, shows what appears to be a white horse with a single horn on its head emerging from the trees in the Don Valley wetland.

    Hickey-Jones brought the footage to the Ontario Science Centre to be analyzed by experts. The Science Centre is reviewing the footage frame-by-frame to determine whether Hickey-Jonesí claim is legitimate. With closer examination, Science Centre staff is hoping to establish whether or not a genuine unicorn sighting has occurred.

    In the meantime, the Science Centre is asking the public to use caution if they think they see a unicorn. Do not make any sudden movements or attempt to use flash photography. Although legends of unicorns state that they are peaceful creatures, scientists worry that they may harm themselves or others if they end up on a road or highway. The Ontario Science Centre has set up an emergency unicorn hotline for the public for further information on unicorns or to report any unusual or questionable sightings. The hotline number is 416-696-3260.

    Unicorn Facts

    * Unicorns tend to avoid eye contact with humans and prefer to remain unseen
    * Unicorns are known in European cultures as being fiercely beautiful creatures whose horns have curative properties
    * The Asian unicorn, described as being scaly coated with the body of a deer and a flesh covered horn, was last seen by the Chinese philosopher Confucius
    * The 1620 edition of Historiae Animalium, a book describing all the animals living on Earth, included a description of unicorns
    Clip at the link. It's kind of reassuring to read a list of unicorn "facts". :D

    I hate to be the one to state the obvious, but this is a white horse that has something (or more accurately, has HAD something) stuck to its head, and then been made to run around in front of a badly focused camcorder.

    Anyway, everyone knows that unicorns are pink, and at the same time as they are pink, are invisible.

    He not only has one, it obviously sleeps in his bed. He probably feeds it on Rosemary Cream Sauce and Belgian beer.

    But you don't believe in Santa Claus and the tooth fairy was your opinion is biased to begin with...

    I believe in Christianity as I believe that the sun has risen: not only because I see it, but because by it I see everything else.

    I don't know about the real unicorns being invisible and pink, but it does look pretty staged.


    The Ontario Science Center is an awesome place to take kids. It was pretty cool in the 70s, when I was a kid. I imagine it's even better, now.
