Origin

Agents were informed about the artifact when reports came in of a family being harassed during a picnic in Yellowstone National Park. Although that in itself seemed normal, the sheer amount and variation of animals that started to aggregate was alarming. The family abandoned the basket and ran. Later interviews suggest that in the end, surrounding the basket, were several grizzly bears, wolves and even elk and deer. None of the animals were aggressive towards each other. 

Effects

Artifact produces a hypnotic effect that solely affects non-human animals, compelling them to congregate passively around the object. Animals may become aggressive if someone attempts to take the basket.
