The mythical wood monster of Vankleek Hill

Vankleek Hill's monster wood

I mean, holy crap, right? I found this guy in the ever-shrinking thicket next to Vankleek Hill’s Arbor Gallery (Centre for Contemporary Art).

Maybe he felt threatened, maybe he thought his fields needed the extra sunlight, I have no idea. This year, behind my girlfriend’s house, a 150-yard strip of trees just went missing. And none of them are being replaced. More trees, you dumbass, not less…
