Kidnapping women while dressed as trees?

Once a year, men in a village dress called Ettingen in Switzerland would up as trees and lay in waiting for their preys – fellow female villagers.

To do what?

They grab the women!

What do they do with the women? Thankfully not to rape or assault them.

But rather just to throw them into the village fountains as they believe this will help with the women’s fertility. This strange custom is called “Pfingstblüttlern”.
