Unicorn in Toronto?

Residents asked to call hotline with sightings! posted: Rumoured Unicorn Sighting Reported In Don Valley 

While other rare creatures have been discovered in the past few years, it’s usually in little explored areas.

What do you think ?

Peter Hickey-Jones, a local bird watcher, shot the following video and brought  it to the Ontario Science Centre for analysis by experts. The video  shows what appears to be a white horse with a single horn on its head entering  the trees in the Don Valley wetland.

Hickey-Jones explained,“I was trying to film a pileated woodpecker when I saw what looked like a bright white horse in the distance. When I got a little closer, I noticed the horn on its head. I’m not one to jump to conclusions but I’m certain beyond the shadow of a doubt that what I saw was a unicorn. I’m just glad I got it on film.” (quote from HERE)

Advisory The Science Centre advises: use caution if you think you see a unicorn. Do not make any sudden movements or attempt to use flash photography. Although legends of unicorns state that they are peaceful creatures, scientists are concerned they may harm themselves or others if they end up on a road or highway.

The Science Centre is reviewing the footage frame-by-frame hoping to establish whether or not a genuine unicorn sighting has occurred, and thereby determine the legitimacy of Hickey-Jones’ claim.

Hotline:416-696-3260  is the emergency unicorn hotline set up by The Ontario Science Centre for further unicorn information, or to report any unusual or questionable sightings.
