One of the silliest ghost reports I’ve uncovered. A riderless bicycle seems to pursue Peter Cooley.
In fact, the phantom bicycle passed through Cooley’s cow — as “green balls of fire fell from the tips of her horns.”
Sadly, the cow did not survive. But Cooley now believes in ghosts!
Each Wednesday, I post an actual ghost report from a U.S. newspaper published between 1865 and 1918. You can also hear me read the articles on The Big Séance and the History Goes Bump podcasts — or listen to previously released recordings here.
