Readers: DIA Is Haunted...By Ghost Cows and TSA Agents With Rubber Gloves

Our post about claims that Denver International Airport is haunted, in addition to being the focus of numerous conspiracy theories, put a lot of our readers in a Halloween state of mind.

But is there really something supernatural going on at DIA?

We put that question to readers, and the responses we received run the gamut. Some folks had fun with the question, others dismissed it — and a select few appear to believe that the airport is a very spirited place.

Here's a roundup of our favorite takes.

There was lots of cattle ranching on the site of DIA. So yes, Ghostly Bovines do wander the halls of DIA. Just worry if you see a stampede of next time you are at the ticket counter.

Who while being at DIA hasn't felt the icy cold grip of a hand on their shoulder only to turn around and find no one there .... Not me, thank god, but I guess others have.
