    RS - Garlic, crosses at the ready as Zarožje mill collapse frees Sava Savanović

    'Put garlic in your windows and crosses in your homes': Serbian council
    warns residents vampire is on the loose after his 'house' collapses
    (Daily Mail)
    Sales of garlic are booming in western Serbia today after the local council issued a public health warning that a vampire was on the loose.

    The official announcement came after an old ruined mill said to once have been the home of the country's most famous vampire collapsed.

    Sava Savanovic was believed to have lived in the shack on the Rogacica river in Zarozje village in the municipality of Bajina Basta.

    It is said he drank the blood of anybody that came to mill their grain.
    Local mayor Miodrag Vujetic admitted: 'People are worried, everybody knows the legend of this vampire and the thought that he is now homeless and looking for somewhere else and possibly other victims is terrifying people. We are all frightened.'

    He added that it was all very well for people who didn't live in the area to laugh at their fears but he said nobody in the region was in any doubt that vampires do exist.
