Enclosure Procedures: A perimeter of 32m2 around the center of the Cypress Swamp, Kentucky is to be mapped and fenced off to prevent civilians from entering AN-002. Along with this, four entry checkpoints are to be erected on all four sides of the perimeter with each one labelled as CA, CB, CC, and CD. Within these checkpoints, DRT units ("Frogmen") and ("First Responders") are to be stationed to guard AN-002 and to ward off any anomalies created by AN-002.

An on-location facility, designated L-Site-002, is to be constructed near Checkpoint A as it is the most populated checkpoint. This site is fitted with a small Regulations Sector, Research Sector, and Combative Sector. Several researching chambers are located inside the Research Sector for containment of captured instances produced by AN-002.

In the event of an AN-002-W instance projecting its anomalous frequencies near the fencing, all personnel located outside of L-Site-002 are to put on Initiative issued headphones. Nearby DRT operatives or Security officers are to escort all non-combative personnel into a safe location within L-Site-002 until the event has ceased.

Description: AN-002 is a marsh located in ▇▇▇▇, Kentucky spanning across ~31m2. AN-002 seems to produce a dense fog in any type of weather. Upon entering AN-002, individuals who have inhaled the fog report experiencing auditory and visual hallucinations followed by intense paranoia.

These hallucinations are described to depict subjects that trigger fear in the affected individual. After ~10 minutes transpire, visual hallucinations will manifest into a physical form. Although these hallucinations vary between victims, they can be experienced by any individual. These manifestations are dubbed AN-002-A. Manifestations of AN-002-A instances are highly aggressive and will attack if victims are near.

The interior of AN-002 has been noted to be a pocket-dimension capable spanning across an indeterminate area. Exits from AN-002 have been found significantly further than they appear outside of AN-002. Additionally, time within AN-002 appears to work slower than it would outside of it due to time dilation caused by AN-002. Because of this, members of the Research Committee stationed at L-Site-002 have developed a timezone dubbed 002-ST1 to assist DRTs and researchers within AN-002.

Note from L-Site-002 DRT Commander
Established: 01/18/2023

As of January 18, 2023, all personnel entering AN-002 are to be accompanied by at least one DRT Frogmen operative and one escorting Security officer. They are to enter AN-002 in a humvee stationed inside the enclosure's gates. Personnel seen entering AN-002 without meeting these requirements will be detained and punished accordingly.

AN-002 houses several species of anomalous wildlife. Wildlife within AN-002 appear to be much larger and aggressive compared to their non-anomalous counterparts. Below is an index of notable wildlife within AN-002:

Checkpoint A Geology

The geology of AN-002 in Checkpoint A is described as damp, humid, and muddy. Because of these conditions, instances of AN-002-1 are known to densely inhabit this area and use it for mass reproduction.

Checkpoint B Geology

Checkpoint B is described as being completely flooded, housing minimal amounts of anomalous wildlife. Though due to the amount of water and the humidity, the previously mentioned fog is denser making Checkpoint B more difficult to traverse.

Checkpoints C and D Geology

Both checkpoints C and D are described as being dry and safer to traverse. Though instances of AN-002-3 have been known to hunt Initiative personnel within these areas due to the dry climate and landscape and the growth of tall grass and bushes.

AN-002 was encountered by civilians that were reportedly exploring the nature when Connor ▇▇▇▇ (23) and Jacob ▇▇▇▇ (27) spotted AN-002 and encouraged the rest of their group to enter and explore the marsh. The rest of the group remained outside of AN-002 and waited for both Jacob and Connor to exit. After 3 hours had transpired, the group began calling out to the individuals without any response. The group's yelling caused instances of AN-002-2 to attack the group due to the impression of the group being hostile killing two of the hikers and injuring the rest.

After interviews with the surviving individuals, the Initiative sent out DRT unit ("First Responders") to attempt to retrieve the missing individuals from AN-002. The half eaten corpses of Jacob ▇▇▇▇ and Connor ▇▇▇▇ were found and recovered. Biopsies show that instances of AN-002-2 and -1 had consumed their hearts, brains, eyes, and stomachs. Traces of AN-002-3 webs were found around the large and small intestines. These webs were found to lead to numerous egg sacks produced by AN-002-3.

The Initiative then returned to the marsh and blocked off all paths leading to it and the L-Site-002 was erected along with the creation of the water-trained DRT unit ("Frogmen").
