Unicorns are not our friends.

Cops in Victoria, B.C., responded to a call about a knife-wielding unicorn chasing a man through a cemetery.

The curious 911 call came around 7 p.m. on Sunday.

"Often, our officers respond to calls which are not quite what they are made out to be," reads a Victoria Police news release. "Sometimes, unfortunately, we get calls which can be described as fanciful at best. But, erring on the side of caution, we always respond to this situations as though they are exactly what callers are reporting them to be."

"In this case, it was exactly as it was described."

Officers arrived at the Ross Bay Cemetery to find a man in a unicorn mask with a large black hunting knife over his head while another man was screaming and "frantically" trying to get away.

The cops approached the two and demanded the unicorn drop his weapon, which he did. As it turns out, though, this was not some bizarre ritualistic murder in progress. The two men were just shooting a funny video, using the graveyard as backdrop.

They both apologized for causing a disturbance and nobody was hurt.

All's well that ends well.

According to police: "With the unicorn unmasked, no charges were laid, no unicorn tears were collected and all was once again tranquil on the shores of Ross Bay."
