The delightful story of two female werewolf-spirit enthusiasts who redefined the term “casual encounter” by tying up a long-distance Internet hook-up and having sex with him for two days—oh, and cutting him 300 times—just keeps getting stranger. According to WISN, in addition to super-scary books like The Werewolf’s Guide To Life and The Necromantic Ritual Book (available in paperback at Amazon), a 10-week-old pit bull with a scar on its neck was found in the women’s East Side apartment. Investigators are unsure if the dog was injured in the marathon humping/cutting session, but the animal is said to be in good health and spirits. That’s more than can be said for the two women, who are currently biding their time in the Milwaukee County Jail. For his part, the would-be Internet lothario is reportedly back home in Phoenix, Arizona, unsure if he’ll press charges or just chalk this one up to a tweet-up gone wrong and leave it at that.
WISN has been practically salivating over this story, proudly boasting last night on its 10 p.m. broadcast that it broke the news of the “satanic sex encounter” rife with “occult-like behavior,” and that hundreds of other papers and websites around the country had picked up on the story. And while it’s easy to joke about it here—a couple of goth-chicks got their freak on!—WISN’s eagerness to drop words like “satanic” and “occult” seems a bit irresponsible. Does anyone really think that a couple of 20somethings who own lame junk like The Werewolf’s Guide To Life are practitioners of the dark arts? Yes, the occult angle is an irresistible hook, but its casual use is starting to border on sensationalism. Is the story fucked up? Definitely, but it’s about as satanic as season three of Buffy.
