It is also inhabited by several Zombies, Blind Dogs and Chimeras (however, the Chimeras tend to stay round the back of the village, outside the fence)
From v1.4000+ the village will also be the habitat for a Burer and a Pseudogiant.
Approaching from the direction of the Mines is usually uneventful (v1.3003) but may readily attract the attentions of Chimeras in subsequent versions. Keeping close to the northern boundary of the greenery helps to mitigate this nuisance.
Both the zombies and dogs often fall victim to the nearby anomalies in the area, making it easier for the player.
The approach to the village along the overgrown path after turning off the main road from the direction of the Railroad Tunnel, is patrolled by a Bloodsucker.
Approaching that path from the opposite direction (from the Service Station) has another Bloodsucker hiding behind an otherwise forgettable bus stop.
