Daily Telegraph NAMIBIAN media report a strange muppet-like beast has been shot dead after a group stumbled across several of the creatures in dense jungle. Locals came across the bizarre being while they were escorting a shooting party in Namibia, local media reported. Witnesses state that the creature was spotted apparently foraging for food, one of the shooting party wounded it with his rifle and it escaped into the thick brush. The locals tracked it to a nearby lair or nest where they found three more creatures of similar size. The wounded creature attacked one of the shooting party and it was shot dead, the others escaped into the brush. The body of the creature was taken back to the local camp, police later removed its corpse and a full forensics investigation is under way.
We here at Sportsmasher.com love bigfoot and other claims of unidentified creatures throughout the world, and we write about these stories whenever one comes across our radar, but I have to say that I’m a little shocked at this one.
Is this creature real? Is it a hoax? I’m not sure yet, but judging by the picture, if its real it looks to be something like an ape or a hominid. The good news is that it sounds like that they have a body and we should no more about this creature shortly, bodies and evidence have a way of going missing in areas like Namibia, and it sounds like the authorities actually have the body.
To tell you the truth, this creature looks more like Sloth from “The Goonies” than anything from the natural world that we have seen.
If it is real, this creature does not look like anything we have ever seen before, maybe some sort of primate that is suffering from a disease? I’m looking into this in greater detail, keep it here for updates.
UPDATE: If this creature is real is there a chance it is an Agogwe? They are a small hominid cryptid that are reported to live in the dense jungles of East Africa. The one difference is Agogwes are supposed to have some sort of hair or fur, and this creature seems to be totally hairless, but the reported size seems about right (about 3-5 feet tall)
Wikipedia “In Tanzania and northern Mozambique, they speak of the agogure or agogue, a human-like, long-armed pygmy with a coat the colour of fired earth. Although its appearance is said to be grotesque, the agogue is said to be more mischievous than menacing.”
