Here's one that isn't mine ,but I heard at a party .
The year my mom died ,I was invited out to thanksgiving dinner with a friend who was in nyc to finish her masters degree . It was my first
thanksgiving without my mom,and I was especially despondent . I only knew her at this gathering.They were all displaced Californians and their
significant others ,which was good for me at the time. I couldn't handle a warm family gathering . I needed detachment .
In any case,one of these guys was an Iraqi vet ,who was now a parks dept worker. He moved trees ,and tore down greenery for construction etc. He had
this one story from I think Staten island ..maybe Brooklyn ,that he wouldnt tell at first ,but we finally coaxed it out of him .
There was this one apartment complex in his area that had constant complaints of a crying baby,and a dog barking . Like endless incessant cries,with a
dog barking in off key harmony . The cops had been called out numerous times by neighbors . At least two dozen . This went on for the better part of
15 years the cops had said .
It always sounded like the cries came from the car park ,but the cops told said,if you were in the car park ,it sounded like it was coming from the
apartments courtyard .
Now this car park had a huge hedge along one side. It was very high .Like at least 7 feet,if not more. And it had grown in width .About six feet deep
too . It bordered the car park at the back .
This guy said ,he was in there one time doing tree planting,and he and the two guys working with him,heard it. The baby crying,and the dog.
They searched . Looked in the bushes. Moved from the car park to the apt area. Where ever you moved to,the crying and barking,sounded like it came
from the opposite direction . He said it was freaky .
So the year of the huge snow storm ,after everything had started to melt ,one tree fell,and a huge part of the hedge in the car park collapsed .
Contractors had to be called in to remove debris and build a fence.
The hedge ,as they cut it down ,had something suspended in the branches about four feet up,towards the middle of its density . As if it had originally
been on the ground ,but the growing hedge moved it all up as it grew higher.
Upon inspection ,it turns out the something,was remains of a baby ,and a little dog . Tattered baby clothes ,and leashes were also found in the
branches . Both had on dog collars ,and the attached leashes were tied to a bigger tree branch . The baby was estimated at about 8 months old .
The babies lower limbs were missing below the knees. When the autopsies were done ,it was found the babies legs had been ingested and were in the dogs
stomach,at the time of its death .
The dog collar had tags,and it was traced . A woman who had been dead now for some time .Her family said she had four children ,but had no idea the
first one had gone missing. Neighbors at the apartment complex remembered her and the dog. She would tie it to the hedge,and go to the bar up the
After her death ,the family knew only three children remained,but just never mentioned to anyone ,they had no idea where the fourth child was.
Sort of slipped their minds ??
Well,it seems one night,she tied up the dog and her baby ,and just left them there .No one reported it,or cared .
The guy told us almost all the people who worked on this call. Cops,emergency medical personnel ,the coroner ,the parks dept guys and contractors ,all
had massive issues with PTSD after this call. Cops were seen sobbing at the scene .
About 90% of the people on this call, quit their jobs within a year.
The crying baby and barking dog ,were never heard again .
