Never underestimate the threat from elves

Fear of elves made Montreal man get powerful guns

A man charged with uttering death threats on Facebook armed himself with high-powered weapons because he feared he was being stalked by elves, a Montreal court was told Wednesday.

Quebec provincial police told David Abitbol’s bail hearing that he told a friend on the Internet that his .12-gauge shotgun was just what he needed to kill the mythical creatures.

A disturbing portrait emerged of the 28-year-old Abitbol during Wednesday’s proceedings in which the Crown reported that an initial evaluation indicated that he was fit to stand trial.

“There’s nothing at this point to make us doubt his ability to appear or his fitness to stand trial,” said prosecutor Steeve Lariviere.
