Just as the Zombie threat appears to finally be lifting it seems America could be at the mercy of an even deadlier menace.
A mob of Leprechauns is carrying out vicious attacks in and around Seattle, Washington.
The pint-sized brutes were allegedly hopping mad after catching the man dancing with the wrong girl at a Belltown bar.
Officers arrived at the scene of a bar fight to find the man covered in blood and screaming in pain with his head held in his hands.
When officers asked who had attacked him he replied, 'It was a bunch of leprechauns.'
Typically, leprechauns are not seen outside of the weeks before and after St. Patrick's Day. The fact that these leprechauns were spotted in June, and so far from their native Ireland, suggests that perhaps they are rabid or otherwise deranged.
The victim claims the leprechauns in question were angry at him for dancing with a woman at the bar. One of them one was reportedly wearing "a white tank top."
The man was taken to Harborview Medical Center with multiple head injuries and cuts and bruises on his face, back, knuckles and elbows.
Police were unable to apprehend the leprechauns or anyone else involved in the attack.
