Cacus, The Man Eating Demi-god, outside his cave near Rome
Hercules was near Rome with the Cattle of Geryon, on the way back to Greece. He lets the cows rest a while.
Welcome to Near Rome! Population: 1 Mythical creature
Hey! You! I'm going to kill you!
Dear Hercules, please help, we are being double stolen.
Cacus sneaks up on the cows and steals 8 of them, dragging them backwards to hide their tracks. But Hercules hears one of the cows moo and follows Cacus.
Cacus was scared so ran quickly back to his cave and blocked the entrance with a boulder. When Hercules arrived he tried to move the boulder but could not..
What is the point in superhuman strength when i can't even move this boulder! HERC ANGRY!
I'll hold the boulder in place!
So Hercules resorted to the only thing that could seem completely reasonable and lifted the top off of the mountain. Cacus was scared and shot smoke and fire out of the hole.
Im going in!
Hercules jumped into the mountain and, as usual in these situations involving rare and mythological creatures,Strangled Cacus. Hercules then built an altar in Rome and people celebrated him every year.
