    I just recently visited with my small dog Lexi. Upon walking around the animal cages no one was around us. I had looked and sat down nothing was nearby us. I turned my back and when I looked a little girl’s pink Disney princess flashlight appeared out of no where. There were no kids in the area. I decided to do an EVP session on my phone only to find when I played it back after asking “Did you put the flashlight there?” A little child’s laughter. I felt like I was being watched. I had chills. This creeped me out.
