||As mentioned elsewhere, photographs of the Hunt
species are very rare. These photos, carefully excavated from a cardboard
box in the garage and then meticulously conserved using a scanner, have
been carbon dated and found to be over 40 years old!! They appear to show
a very young beast demonstrating a very peculiar (and, yes it was real)
thingy. The guys loading the truck in the background of photo 2 mistook
it for a ray gun - after a window it was pointing at mysteriously broke.
They dived under the truck for safety and didn't come out until the Hunt
creature had gone.
|A strange Thingy - this one wasn't military (as
if I'd post such a thing), it was a very special kind of ultrasonic microphone
for detecting coronal discharge around power pylon insulators. The telescopic
site could spot a duff pylon at a one and a half kilometres, and a duff
insulator at 100 metres. Trouble
was, the CEGB found that one man with a good ear and a Landrover was cheaper
than a helicopter - not to mention the additional cost when the chopper
got caught up in the power cables - messy!!
