Controversy Surrounds 10-Foot Werewolf Decoration as Owner Faces Removal Notice

A massive Halloween decoration in the form of a 9.5-foot-tall plastic werewolf has sparked controversy after its owner, Mary Simmons, received a notice to take it down. Simmons, who purchased the towering decoration last October, has chosen to leave it up year-round.

Describing the werewolf as her house mascot, Simmons explained, “I kind of look at it as a security thing. Who wants to break into a house with a 9.5-foot werewolf sitting outside of it? I know I wouldn’t.” She also expressed her love for Halloween and her intention to dress up the werewolf according to the season.

The City of Piqua received an anonymous complaint about the decoration, but some neighbors see no issue with it. Hailey Barker, a neighbor and horror fan, commented, “I didn’t really mind it. I’ve watched them dress it up for different occasions, and I think it’s pretty cool.”

While the city issued a warning about the decoration, it currently has no plans to enforce its removal further. Simmons stated that she will only take it down if it becomes a safety hazard. “I don’t want somebody walking by and his head falls off, hitting them,” she emphasized. “I try to treat people like I want to be treated, and I wouldn’t want that to happen to me.”

The werewolf, named Phil, has gained significant attention on social media over the past few days. Simmons even created a Facebook page for the beloved decoration. “Halloween is my decorating season,” Simmons declared. “People go for fall, spring, and winter. I’m going for Halloween.”

At present, Simmons assured that there are no safety concerns, as the decoration has weathered the winter and recent storms without incident. Although the werewolf is staked to the ground, Simmons pledged to remove it immediately if any safety issues arise.
