Today in creepy news, locals are worried this hooded figure is responsible for dropping raw meat in playgrounds in a city in the US.

Only a few photos have been taken of the mysterious person, whose face is not visible.

Facebookers are talking about seeing this person in Hudson Woods Sunday. Did you actually see the cloaked person who reportedly dropped raw meat on or near the playground?

But residents in Gastonia, North Carolina, have blamed the figure for the raw meat apparently round in local playgrounds.

Lance Calhoun, the managing agent of the residential complex where the photo was taken and the raw meat found, said: "We don't know if it's one of our residents with an interesting way of presenting themselves, or if it's a trespasser."

Police aren't sure what, if anything, is going on. "We don't know if this is some bogus prank somebody is playing," a spokesperson told the Gaston Gazette.

But people from the town don't think it's a laughing matter.

Brooke Conrad told the Gazette: "I see why it could be easy to make a joke out of it, but this is serious. We live in a world today where you don't know what's going on and you don't know people."
