Something has spooked employees and patrons alike at the Talisman pub in Wolverhampton, England, and the landlord says he’s captured the luminous phantom on camera.
62 year old landlord Peter Thacker believes that the glowing green fog he’s captured on the pub security system is not only a ghost, he believes it’s the disembodied spirit of a man who died while drinking right next to him in the same pub some 30 years prior.
While the building has had a long history of ghostly rumors, the staff never had any proof to back up their stories of bumps in the night, at least until now.
“The girls had locked up and the place was in darkness,” Thacker told The Birmingham Mail.
“They were unaware of the strange light until they looked at the CCTV. They were shocked, I can tell you. It’s very, very strange – you can see it dancing on the table. When you think about it, it does make your hair stand on end.”
When the strange mist first appeared on the camera, staff simply passed it off as some smoke, until it began to behave strangely, almost intelligently. Oh yeah, and there’s that whole glowing in the dark thing too.
“It’s baffled us. If anyone has a logical explanation we’d love to hear it,” one employee said.
As of now, Peter Hacker hasn’t heard a satisfying answer to the odd anomaly, and is considering calling in some paranormal professionals to the property. Until then, the close encounter with restless spirits has given regulars of the Talisman Pub plenty to chat about as they knock ’em back, after all, a shot of whisky is the perfect thing to cure the shivers.
What do you think the staff at the Talisman captured on camera? Is there a reasonable explanation for the weird glowing fog, or does the building house a different brand of spirits?
