In Gardner, Kansas, the police set up a trail camera to try to verify reports of a mountain lion prowling around a public park.

The camera didn't pick up a mountain lion, but it did find a terrifying gorilla, a granny walking around with a machete, and a man in a gas mask staring ominously into the camera.

In other words, silly prankstas.

"We would like to sincerely thank the persons responsible as it made our day," wrote the Gardner Police Department on Facebook after reviewing the camera footage.

"Thank you to the citizens who noticed the cameras. Your effort and sense of humor are greatly appreciated."

The police don't seem too concerned about a hungry mountain lion bursting in to bust up the pics, so it seems safe to say good job, you wacky Jayhawks.

Of course, there's always the distinct possibility that the police have assumed this is a prank, when really it's just the freakiest park on the planet.

Probably.
