Translink Transit Police said Saturday's Zombie Walk, an annual event since 2005, resulted in some 911 calls from SkyTrain passengers who were concerned the realistic weapons being carried by some fellow travelers in undead makeup, the Canadian Broadcasting Corp. reported Monday.

Constable Graham Walker said officers investigated the reports and verified the weapons were replicas being carried by "zombies."

"Ourselves, along with Vancouver Police, have responded to a couple calls where plastic guns were subject to the call," he said. "To the members of the public, they looked very real."

"Most of the time people were allowed to keep them, but asked to store them in a more safe way that doesn't cause alarm," Walker said.
