The 11 Weirdest And Strangest Things That Have Ever Happened In Denver

I see my fair share of bizarre occurrences in Denver every day. It is a booming, populous metropolitan area, after all. We’ve got movers and shakers, free spirits and fakers, and well, of course we’ve got bakers. Here are some of the weirdest things to happen in Denver to date. Definitely things that make you go, “Hmmmm?”

2. Last week Jefferson County Sheriff’s Office deputies responded to a distress call at Chief Hosa Campground, in which a small black bear seemed to have trapped him or herself in a teen’s car, and here’s video to prove it. (Note: If you plan to camp this summer, please be bear-responsible. Check out Colorado Parks and Wildlife for more info.)

7. “Man filming hit by lightning” is really all you need to know. Now watch this “shocking” video!

If you’re into the weird and strange, you’ve got to hear the gruesome story of Alfred Packer, the Colorado Cannibal. This local legend will leave you dumbfounded!
