This definitely isn’t the Wizarding World but apparently, it seems that somebody let a Dementor out of Azkaban… again!
In the Harry Potter series, Dementors are dark humanoid figures that “drain all the peace, hope, and happiness out of the air around them” and will feed on you and leave you nothing but the worst experiences of your life.
They were seen in the muggle world during Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix when a Dementor chased Harry and his cousin Dudley. But in the “real world,” outside of the books and movies, a Dementor figure was spotted at Kitwe, Zambia. Merlin’s beard!
The dark humanoid figure is said to have been around 100 metres long and seen in the clouds for about 30 minutes, according to Metro.
The photo that circulated online made some believe that Dementors might just be real:

But hey, it’s no biggie if you can summon a Patronus charm like Harry:
Dementors ain't a big deal if you know how to summon the patronus charm 🤷🏽♀️ https://t.co/1kjJ8Mltmq

And speaking of Harry, blimey, where are you mate? *deducts 10 points from Gryffindor*
Some people pointed out that the photo is obviously photoshopped from a “Dementor-shaped” kite found on Tumblr.

Also, as we know, non-magical creatures like us can’t see Dementors too. Well, only Potterheads will know.
Oh my gosh that guy who Photoshoped the dementor in kitwe must be rolling on the floor laughing

Photoshopped or not, we should all grab our wands and practice “Expecto Patronum” right now!
Better be prepared with chocolates too.
