Do not be fooled by the title-however much like a "B" movie
this may sound, this incident was reportedly investigated by both the Environmental Protection Agency
and the Indiana Department of Environmental Management
, both of whom are reported to have taken the matter very seriously.
The creature was first reported in 1996, by a 30 year-old employee of General Motors, who spotted it in a sludge pit of Delphi Interior and Lighting Systems Plant 9 at Anderson, Indiana, describing it as squid-like, and the colour of an earth-worm. When the pit was cleared out, another of these creatures surfaced. The creature measured around eight inches long, with primitive eyes and long tentacles. It was killed and placed in a jar for examination. More creatures began to surface, some of which were killed, some of which became submerged before they could be caught. A spokeswoman for th Delphia company in Detroit, Sharon Morton, played down this incident to the press, dismissing the creature as a result of minor "bacterial growth" in the pit, which contained anti-freeze, paint stripper, oil and polyal, a chemical compound used to make car bumpers. These creatures have not been examined professionally, as government officials have confiscated all specimens.
I found out about this incident in a book called Strange Encounters, part of a series called the unXplained. It doesn't seem to name any author anywhere in the book. It doesn't even have their name in the copyright...
