The day began faster than usual with three job calls. Interestingly enough, each came from a pet store in the area (Incredible Pets, Pet Palace, and Furry Friends). Each location had reported a Class 2 Manipulator (in this case free floating ghostly hands). Each of the locations had been torn to shambles. The ghostly hands had opened all the cages setting all the pets free. Each of the stores also reported that a valuable animal had been “kidnapped” (a water monitor, a ferret, and a macaw respectively). After removing the manipulators we returned to headquarters. At the headquarters our answering machine was waiting for us. Lt. Brian Dollhauser had called again with another case. It would seem that major paranormal activity was occurring at the Sacramento Zoo.
We arrived to a sea of panicked individuals and sirens at the entrance of the Sacramento Zoo. Here we met with Dollhauser. He told us that the animals in the zoo had somehow been possessed and taken some of the zoo keepers hostage. We also spoke with Leslie Birtram, the zoo’s head keeper on the subject. After all the needed information was collected we entered the zoo. Shockingly, in the center of the zoo, we found the remains of an enormous broken cage made of bone. After further insection of the cage, our worst case scenario had been revealed. We saw the familiar markings of Oblier the Jailer. We were now working double time to ensure this anomaly wouldn’t escape the fences of this zoo.
The cage housed an enormous beast unlike anything we had seen before which we have called Ectosaurus Rex. Study of the beast showed us that although its skin seemed impervious to nearly any attack, the interior of its gullet proved its weakness.
After finding the hostages and defeating the Rex (which in turn removed the paranormal control over the animals), we were able to had the zoo back over to Ms. Birtram, and head back to headquarters to celebrate Trisha’s birthday in some amount of peace.
Sadly though, I’m worried about the city of Sacramento. Oblier and his followers chose this town for some reason. Whether we like it or not, I know when the time comes, the responsibility for this city’s well-being will rest on the shoulders of GhostBusters International. Though I should warn the Demigod, that if he thinks planar domination is going to be easy, then he has vastly underestimated my teammates.
Sincerely, Daniel Higgens
