Mother Nature never wants to leave us alone. Over and over again, we continue to encounter weirdness and creepiness at every turn. One of the latest creepy events comes to us from Auburn, Washington.
Last week, residents awoke to something very weird after a rain storm: sidewalks littered with thousands of worms. But they weren't just any worms. These creatures were woven together into big heaps of nastiness.
This was the scene that the people of Auburn were confronted with. How disgusting is that?
A reader sent these photos to the local news station after encountering slimy balls of worms while taking a walk.
While rain played a role, it didn't twist the worms into knots. According to researchers, moles most likely did the dirty work.
"Moles will weave worms into clumps underground to be eaten later," said John Locatelli, a retired researcher at the University of Washington.
Basically, the rain washed away their dinner plans.
In any case, this is not what you want to see when you walk outside.
