If anyone has noticed a lack of Firey-Bou This story from the BBC Scotland might explain:

Highland blazes test fire brigade

The fire brigade dealt with more than 80 blazes
Firefighters have been struggling to deal with more than 80 blazes in the Highland countryside over the weekend.

The clear weather of the past few days has stretched local crews to the limit.

Many of the fires were started deliberately and fire chiefs are appealing to people to show sense.

One of the most serious blazes was close to Glenfinnan Viaduct, near Fort William, which is being used as a location for the new Harry Potter film.

Occult expert in hunt for horse attackers
AN expert in religiously motivated crime has been called in by animal welfare workers to help investigate a series of attacks on horses that may be linked to the occult calendar.

Richard Hoskins is the official cultural adviser to the "Adam" case, in which the torso of a young boy was found floating in the River Thames. He was thought to have been taken to London and killed as a human sacrifice.

The consultant in religious crime, who lectures on religion at Bath Spa University, has now been enlisted by the Scottish Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (SSPCA) to analyse incidents, including ritual attacks, on horses around the country over the past 16 months.

While some animals have been stabbed, sexually abused, and assaulted, others have had their tails chopped off or manes plaited or covered in a sticky substance.

Horse owners have also found ritualistic symbols hidden in corners of fields, ranging from tiny stone altars to pre-Christian power signs such as double-headed axes.

The SSPCA has asked anyone who suspects their horse has been tampered with, no matter how minor, to make contact and it will see if a pattern emerges for what it suspects could add up to hundreds of attacks throughout Britain.

Doreen Graham, a spokeswoman for the SSPCA, said the timings of the attacks appeared to have links with the occult calendar.

She said a retired Aberdeenshire policeman, who was helping with the inquiry and who did not want to be named, had made the initial connection with the work of shamans or witch doctors.

The SSPCA inquiry, being run jointly with the RSPCA in England, will continue until December, after which Dr Hoskins and John MacIntyre, the chief pagan for Scotland, will analyse the results.

"Someone looked at statistics for various attacks and they seemed to start in October and end at Easter. This might tally with the occult calendar," said Ms Graham. "The god of the horse is Mars, and the day that relates to Mars is Tuesday. Some of the attacks happened late on a Monday night or early on a Tuesday."

Ms Graham said local "hot spots" had already been identified in Ayrshire, Fife, Lanarkshire, and Nottingham.
