NYPost A mysterious “half human, half animal” creature has been caught on camera after it was said to have savaged two dogs. The beast is reported to have been spotted prowling through the streets of Santa Fe, Argentina. The photo was taken after it was said to have butchered a German shepherd and a pit bull. Some locals likened the creature to a camel because of its long neck and small head. It was uploaded to the YouTube channel UFOmania, and has now been viewed more than 30,000 times. One person commented: “I saw one of these things in 2005, it was crossing a bridge and we came upon it.” “It blew my mind because it looked at us and turned and began moving just like a kangaroo would and cleared the concrete bridge wall easily and dropped at least 15 to 20 feet.” Another added: “Here in the Philippines it is called ASWANG — a man transforms into a monster dog.” “It is a demon, it can even shift into a cat or a big bird.” But one user insists it is a Chupacabra, a vampire-like creature with strong roots in Latin folklore.
Fans of SportSmasher.com know that there is nothing we love more than a bizarre creature getting caught on camera, and that’s exactly what happened recently in Argentina, when a strange looking creature which allegedly killed two large dogs (a German Shepherd and a Pit Bull) was caught on camera. While the report calls the creature a “half human half animal”, to me the creature looks more feline in appearance, with long thin limbs and a seemingly hairless body. Argentina is home to several large carnivores including the spectacled bear, the maned wolf and the jaguar, my guess is that the mystery creature is a known species suffering from mange or another disease which has left the animal unable to hunt and forced it to live nearby human civilization in order to prey on livestock and domesticated animals. The long forelimbs almost look like the maned wolf (picture below), and if a maned wolf became stricken with mange, I could see it somewhat resembling the mystery beast. That or, the legends are true, and the chupacabra is real! As a fan of cryptozoology, I hope this is an incredible new species, but in these situations the best explanation is usually the most logical explanation. Stay tuned.
