Kansas wildlife cameras capture photos of costumed pranksters
In between photos of raccoons, skunks and coyotes were images of pranksters dressed up as gorillias, monsters and, in more festive fashion, Santa Claus.

GARDNER, Kan. — Motion-activated cameras intended to capture images of mountain lions in a Kansas park have instead snapped pictures of pranksters dressed as animals, monsters and Santa Claus.
Police said they found the images on the two cameras at the park in Gardner on Monday.
Interspersed among images of skunks and coyotes were photos of people wearing costumes pretending to be lions wrestling, a gorilla, various monsters and an old person with a walker. And of course Santa made an appearance during the three nights of high jinks.
Cpl. Robert Huff said it was "pretty comical" and "creative." The pranksters have not come forward.
The cameras were established this month to investigate reports of mountain lions. No mountain lions were detected.
Gardner is 30 miles southwest of downtown Kansas City, Missouri.
