Remember the woman who caught some flack from her HOA over her pole-dancing Halloween display? Well, she's added even more to the decorations AND they're apparently a hit in Canada, eh!

When officers arrived, they discovered the five-legged creature was in fact a man on stilts testing out his elaborate Halloween costume.

The man told officers his creation is called Psy and is based on "the psychological image of fear."

He apologized and explained to officers he didn't mean to cause a disturbance and said he lived nearby.
