Strange Creatures Seen In San Luis Argentina

Residents of Merlo claim having seen imps near a hundred year
old eucalyptus tree

A strange story from Valle de Conlara

The Municipality trimmed the tree because its large branches
were jeopardizing motorists traveling along Avenida del Inca.
After work, some residents reportedly saw "little men coming out
[of the tree] in single file from that location."

The landscapes described by the prolific South African (sic)
writer John Ronald Reuel Tolkien =96 author of The Lord of the
Rings =96 as the habitat of imps, elves, trolls and fairies that
appear in his works do not vary all that much. These creatures
enjoy living in forests, trees, small rivers and clean
environments. They tend to dwell within trees or openings in the

Described thus, an infinite number of similar landscapes can be
described in a number of points throughout the country, and
Merlo is no exception, even though humans may be accused of
making these places fewer and fewer.

Days ago, the Municipality of Merlo, at the request of local
residents, trimmed a hundred-year old eucalyptus that is next to
the Leopoldo Lugones Library in Piedra Blanca, on a tight curve
by Avenida de los Incas. The large branches obscured visibility
for motorists and jeopardized light and telephone wires on windy

While the trimming operations took place on the avenue, adjacent
to a stream, traffic was interrupted and once restored, locals
driving through the area, lighting it with their car headlights,
claimed to have seen the strange figures. They reportedly saw
"some little men coming out of the amputated tree and walking
single file toward the library. Most witnesses did not offer
details, but one woman described their clothing as having a
brownish hue," said Cecillia de Gabrele, an employee at the
library who fielded several phone calls at her workplace from
locals who sought confirmation for what they had seen nearby.
However, neither the employee nor her coworkers noticed anything

Cecilia added that for many years there have been stories of
"imp" sightings for many years in that district. "Thats where
Aguaribay Street begins, which has abundant native flora, and
many claim having seen tiny beings between the branches and

Once the trimming operation was over in what some believe may
have been the dwelling of these little people, the landscape
"was devastating", according to De Gabriele. The eucalyptus has
a reddish wood and after being trimmed, this shade became
visible. Faced with the bizarre scene, some have gone as far as
to suggest that "the strong coloring gave the impression that
the tree was bleeding."
