I don't believe in group hallucinations. That's impossible imo.
Off subject a tad, but this is why I feel like mass UFO sightings need more research done than they normally get. The Phoenix lights case comes to mind among many many others.

Secrets of the Third Reich Jagerhunds
Review West Wind Productions recently expanded their Secrets of the Third Reich range with three new Jagerhund miniatures.
The 28 mm sized figures are part man and part dog with a focus on German dog breeds. Think of them as Weredogs instead of Werewolves. West Wind was kind enough to send along one of each of the three miniatures; the Jagerhund Rottweiler, Jagerhund Alsatian and the Jagerhund Doberman. Each of these miniatures is available from the West Wind Productions online store for £4.00 each and there will be rules for using them in West Wind’s upcoming Secrets of the Third Reich ruleset. All three of the miniatures are single piece castings with an integrated tabs to be used with a slotta base. They are approximately 40mm from the base of their feet to the tops of their heads. Each of the miniatures that we received had no flash and almost no mould lines. The prep work needed to get these ready for priming was negligible. While the figures are part of West Wind’s Weird WWII range there is nothing about them specific to the WWII period and so you could use these figures for almost any Pulp or Horror gaming you may be interested in. The Doberman would work especially well in an Egyptian themed Pulp game. All three are similarly attired in ripped pants with bare chests and feet. Each is also posed similarly with clenched fists. Jagerhund Doberman front Jagerhund Doberman back Jagerhund Doberman Of the three miniatures, the Jagerhund Doberman most closely resembles the dog from which it is modeled on. It is a tough task to be sure since we get so many visual clues to a dog’s breed from physical characteristics that aren’t present in these miniatures due to the hybrid nature of the beats. The Jagerhund Doberman’s ears and snout are a good representation on the real dog though. The Jagerhund Rottweiler resembles a slightly older and fatter dog, at least the head does, but it is still noticeably a Rottweiler. The ears are slightly flat against its head so from the front it is difficult to make out that it is meant to be a dog but from other angles the resemblance is quite strong. The Jagerhund Alsatian though looks far more like a Werewolf than a German Shepherd. The fur on the muzzle isn’t correct and the head is the wrong shape. Jagerhund Rottweiler front Jagerhund Rottweiler back Jagerhund Rottweiler The Jagerhund Rottweiler has the most interesting pose of the three. The dog’s head is back and its mouth open wide in a challenging howl, its arms are tensed at its side. The anger demonstrated by the sculpt is emphasized by the enlarged veins that work across the Jagerhund’s chest and arms. Its fitting that the Rottweiler gets this pose given its reputation and the miniature does a good job at portraying raw aggression and anger. The Jagerhund Doberman is posed looking off to its right with its right arm extend in the direction of its gaze. The clenched fist of its right hand doesn’t look quite right. The Jagerhunds all have human looking hands with fingers and it is curious that West Wind didn’t pick this miniature to show those fingers by having the Jagerhund Doberman pointing or gesturing with something other than a clenched fist. Both the Doberman and the Rottweiler have curved dog-like legs, the Doberman moreso than the Rottweiler. The Alsatian has more human looking legs with more extensive fur on them. Both the Rottweiler and the Doberman have very prominent and well defined musculature. The Alsatian has more fur modeled on the figure and so some of that definition is “lost” under the fur meaning the Alsatian looks less defined when compared to the other two Jagerhunds.

The Doberman and Rottweiler are more dog-l

A word to the wise... Kings Norton is not too far away
from Chipping Norton and The Rollright Stones, I'll gamble
that's the connection.
A liitle-known yarn is that The Stones can be used in
a similar manner as what supposedly was happening
at The Skinwalker Ranch in the States.
The standing stones can open a portal, it's said and has
been reported 'men-dogs' have been seen... that's the
story of the American ranch.
Whether this has occurred here, I don't know.
Here's the stones in question.
