Number Of The Beast As Bus Kills Moose At 666 Kilometre Mark

Number Of The Beast As Bus Kills Moose At 666 Kilometre Mark

Police had a devil of a time getting this massive moose freed from a bus in Belarus, that was stopped in its tracks as the bus speedometer reached the 666 kilometre mark.

After the moose smashed its head through the glass of the bus travelling on a highway leading from the Belarus capital Minsk to the Ukrainian capital Kiev, police noticed the speedometer on the bus read 666.6.

The digits 666 represent 'the mark of the beast' and are used by Satanists to invoke Lucifer himself.

Several passengers held a roadside service and prayed as police and fireman battled to remove the dead moose from the front of the bus.

"They thought the beast was cursed when it fact it was merely drunk," said a police officer.

This time of year the moose in the region like to sniff out rotting fruit that has fermented. They eat masses of the stuff, ending up totally sozzled and, like this unfortunate creature, wandering into harm's way.

Bus driver Isaac Voronoff said: "The thing ran straight out of the woods bordering the highway and I could not avoid hitting it. I noticed the 666 on the speedometer too, but I am not a superstitious person. But when some of the old dears on the bus heard about it they began crossing themselves right away, rattling their beads and setting up a cross at the side of the road to pray for salvation."

Another bus had to be sent from Minsk to continue transporting the nervous passengers on their way.
