Superstitious beachcombers have been finding “witch bottles” along the Gulf of Mexico coast, with eight discovered near Corpus Christi since 2017.

These bottles, often filled with various items, are believed to have been used to trap malevolent spirits and were traditionally observed in the UK.

Less than a dozen have been found in the US, and their origins are uncertain. (Trending: Donald Trump Confronts Bud Light CEO.)

“I don’t get creeped out by them, but I’m also not going to open them,” said Jace Tunnell.

“I mean, they’re supposed to have spells and stuff in them – why take the chance?” asked the researcher.

According to The Society, “Back in the 16th and 17th centuries there was a powerful belief in witches and their ability to cause illness by casting a spell.”

“But the evil spells could be fended off by trapping them in a ‘witch bottle,’ which if properly prepared, could actually reflect the spell itself while also tormenting the witch, leaving the witch with no option but to remove the spell, allowing the victim to recover,” explained the publication.

“When it comes to manmade debris, it’s about telling people if you see a piece of trash on the ground, pick it up,” advised Tunnel.

“A lot of the stuff we find, even if it’s way inland, gets into the nearest waterway if it rains , he continued.

Adding, “Where does that go? The ocean.”

Researchers advise caution when encountering these bottles, recommending to leave the stopper corked whether taking them home or leaving them on the beach.
