Shayla Wiggins, a 19-year-old from Riverton, Wyoming, was out for a stroll trying to catch ’em all in Pokémon GO when she found something quite different than what she was looking for.

“I was trying to get a Pokémon from a natural water resource,” Shayla says, explaining why she decided to jump over a fence to get to the edge of a river. Once there, she discovered not fun-loving pocket monsters, but a male corpse floating in the water, ass up. Instead of continuing to hunt for cuddly creatures, Shayla did the right thing and called 911.

Authoritiessay the body had been there for less than 24 hours and have yet to release any further information. Shayla says she was shaken up over the incident, as you could imagine. “I was pretty scared and cried for a while.”

Considering the lengths and places people are willing to go to find what amounts to virtual animals, I give it a month before Americans are all fit, and we have finally caught Big Foot.
