Mysterious boulder found on Dutch road: what is it? and where did it come from?

Last night, police officers in Zeist received a report that a two by four meter boulder had been discovered on the road in Oranje Nassaulaan in Zeist. Well, at least they thought it was a boulder.

After the dispatch center for Police Central Netherlands received the unusual report, the police investigated, and sure enough — there it was! A massive boulder right on the cycle path.

Despite its huge size, the “boulder” wasn’t actually that heavy, reports RTL Nieuws. It was temporarily moved onto the cycle path by the person who made the report — meaning it was either a fake boulder, or that was one very ticked off motorist.

The police are still unsure where the boulder came from and who may have put it there. There is speculation that it may have been a prank or a drunken action.

One for the Insta

However, the police enjoyed the humour and took a moment to show off their super-human strength by posing with the giant “rock.”

Reporting the story, the police even took to Instagram, joking “did someone lose something?”
