Hotel linked to Stephen King to dig up pet cemetery

ESTES PARK, Colo. -- Plans to dig up a pet cemetery at the hotel that inspired Stephen King's horror novel "The Shining" have neighbors feeling aggrieved.

The graves at the Stanley Hotel in Estes Park are to be moved to the other side of a small pond, making way for wedding and corporate retreat pavilion.

"Elsie," "Holmes" and "Stanley Blue" I, II and III are among roughly 12 marked graves dating to the 1960s, with stones and a tiny white fence marking the cemetery.

Among King's novels is "Pet Sematary," a book about animals and people who demonically come back to life after internment at an ancient Native American burial site.

Hotel staff said the cemetery is sometimes a stop on tours, though it doesn't attract near the attention of the hotel itself.

While nobody expects Holywood-style horror to come from the cemetery's relocation, believers in paranormal activity say the move could come with unintended consequences.

"Stirring up the bones of the dead" could kick a hornet's nest of paranormal unrest, said a local psychic medium.



  1. Uh oh. Haven't they ever heard that you should let sleeping dogs lie? =)

  2. This is just like that time I dug up my guinea pig, Shermie. He didn't look too good.
