Dragon Loose Over London

Dragon spotted by several muggles over London. The dragon, a Norwegian Ridgeback, was seen over Camden Town at approximately six fifteen pm this Friday night. The Ridgeback shot fire into the air in a display of anger before it flew into the air, scaring the surrounding muggles.

The muggles were dealt with by the Obliviators at the Department of Magical Accidents and Catastrophes. Before they were obliterated statements were taken.

One of the hysterical muggles said “It was so scary. I mean, dragons! They’re not supposed to be real! I thought it was going to eat me or set me on fire!”

The Ridgeback is currently being hunted by the Department of Dangerous Magical Creatures. A spokesperson for the Department commented “The dragon is leaving obvious carnage and destruction behind it, we are on its trail and confident we will be able to find it soon. I mean, there’s only so many places a dragon could be. We’re hoping it’s gone south, away from muggle inhabitants.”

This is another embarrassing blunder for the Ministry in regards to Muggles. The Statute of Secrecy is taking some serious blows and the Muggle Prime Minister has been alerted to the dangerous creature on the loose.

Once the dragon has been caught it will be taken to a refuge in Romania, headed up by the infamous Dragon Handler, Charlie Weasley. The reserve currently holds fifty dragons and two nesting mothers.

If you have any information regarding the whereabouts of the dragon please send an owl at your soonest convenience to the Department of Dangerous Magical Creatures.
