With Halloween fast approaching, it’s the season to be scared – and social media users are no exception, it seems.
TikTok fans were somewhat baffled after a dog owner posted what they called the most “compelling” ghost video they’ve ever seen.
User Shannyfantg posted the spooky footage from her CCTV after reviewing a clip of her dogs and spotting what she believes to be a “ghost.”

She shared the ‘ghoul’ clip on her account @ user3228721954538, telling viewers to keep their eyes peeled for her pet.
the Mirror reports how she wrote, “Sorry for the obnoxious barking at first. Watch my black dog. Ghost is removing his collar from his crate.”
In the video, her two dogs, both in separate crates, bark at each other.
They continue to do this over and over, until about 25 seconds after the start of the footage, when the animals go completely silent – and remain vigilant for a while.

The black dog, who is in the cage on the right, whines and suddenly rears up in the cage as far as he can, when his collar randomly drops.
This is what convinced her owner that there was a “ghost” – and she’s not the only one who thinks so.
Since its publication, the video has racked up over a million likes and thousands of comments from people who say it’s a ghost too.
One person said: “I have never seen such a compelling ghost video.”
Another wrote: “They both got super quiet… they felt the energy.”
A third commented: “The silence was disturbing.
Someone else said, “Something that bothers dogs doesn’t suit me.” “
Others suggested that the necklace had caught on one of the bars of the metal crate, causing it to come off.
They said, “The collar was stuck on the crate, when the dog turned his head it unbuckled. The dog was surprised by the collar unbuckled and jumped back. Come on people.”
“The only thing that would make sense – IN ADDITION TO A GHOST (which I believe in) is that the collar was too tight, the dog turned its neck and made it snap. The dog is scared and jump back. “
But not everyone was convinced because the dog was “away from the sides of this crate to get stuck on anything.”
