Man Catches “Ghost Dog” Playing In Back Yard On Security Camera

Halloween might be over, but scary stuff can still happen all the time, especially if you’re one to believe in the possibility of the paranormal.

Or…scary stuff can still happen when there is a rational explanation for a ghost dog being caught on camera, right? Well, the jury is still out on this one.

Is it a ghost dog or a malfunctioning security camera? You decide.

Either way, a man in Australia was left stumped and stunned when he claims to have captured a “ghost dog” on camera playing with his own pooch in the backyard.

The footage was taken from the man’s home security camera, and shows what appears to be a white or transparent dog running around the back and playing with his own dog, Ryder.

The man, Jake DeMarco, from Melbourne, Victoria, has shared the clip with the internet, still in disbelief.

He is insistent that there is no way that another animal could’ve gotten into his backyard as the 38-year-old father of two says that his backyard has a very high, locked fence running all around it.

DeMarco shared how he made the discovery: “I was out in the garage having a cigarette when one of the four live camera streams caught my eye. Ryder was running around like he was playing with something or someone which isn’t normal behavior for him, especially at that time of the night. I noticed he wasn’t alone. I was confused and in shock when I saw the footage because I knew Ryder was alone but had a playmate for a minute that then disappeared into the darkness.”

DeMarco has also joked that his wife has now taken to watching the family’s security cameras more than their TV, hoping to maybe see the “ghost dog” for herself.

While you may or may not be believing what you’re seeing, you should know that the bizarre occurrence isn’t the first of its kind. Not long ago, a TikToker, Shannyfantg, shared her own strange incident that involves a “ghost” taking off her dog’s collar. If these videos are to be believed it would seem that ghosts have a fondness for dogs – probably because they’re so cute and cuddly.
