Unicorn sighting in Toronto?

CANADA/RELIGION - Amateur video by a birdwatcher in Toronto's Don Valley captured what appears to be an unicorn. Local birdwatcher Peter Hickey-Jones spotted the elusive and legendary creature and captured it on film. The video in question shows what appears to be a white horse with a single horn on its head emerging from the trees in the Don Valley wetland.

The video is being examined by the experts at the Ontario Science Centre, where it is reviewing the footage frame-by-frame to determine whether the video is genuine.

However this seems to be nothing more than a publicity stunt by the Ontario Science Centre itself, which has an upcoming exhibit about mythical creatures beginning October 9th.






The Ontario Science Centre is asking people to use caution if they see a unicorn and not to make any sudden movements or use flash photography. The OSC has even setup an Unicorn Hotline # at 416-696-3260 for people to report unicorn sightings... which is probably a clever ploy to invite people to visit their mythical creatures exhibit.
