Could you imagine one day going into your basement and finding the basement floor covered in 5 inches of blood and animal fat.  That would creep the heck out of me especially around Halloween.

A family in Bagley, Iowa not Amityville New York told the Des Moines Register:

Some things you just think you’ll never see

How did 5 inches of blood end up in their basement, was it something out of this world?  

No.

Here is the situation; this family lives right next door to Dahl’s Custom Meat Locker and they apparently share a drain and the blood had seeped into the basement through that floor drain.

The drain is used to dispose of waste water but the meat locker used it to dispose of animal blood and fat.   They clogged the drain and the blood backed up into the basement of the next door neighbors home.

Check out this video from WHO-HD TV’s YouTube Channel:

The family cannot stay in the home until the blood is cleaned up.  They told the paper:

I've had a company come out for cleaning and sanitizing, but they can't start that process until it stops coming up the drain...I've been talking to different excavation people. It hasn't been a promising deal. I need dry weather.

This is going to cost thousands of dollars to remedy and the owner of the meat locker, Kaitlin Dahl told the paper:

We don’t want to harm anybody. We’re not bad people. We’re trying to make a living, not enemies

Now that is a spooky Halloween story they can retell for the rest of their lives and beyond.
