Residents are on the lookout for a 7ft creature after it took down two dogs in their local neighbourhood.
People living in the town of Santa Fe, Argentina, which is approximately 312 miles from the capital city of Buenos Aires, are living in fear after a mysterious creature allegedly took down two dogs – a pit bull and a German shepherd – in the most savage manner possible.
One local even took a picture of this so-called beast but was only able to capture it in its shadowy form.
While the images of the 'unidentified beast' is unclear it appears to be larger than you're normal sized-canine. Almost appearing 7ft tall whilst on all fours, it also has a hunchback like a camel, an elongated neck and a face bearing a similar shape to a horse or a rabbit, The Mirror reports.
However, without clear proper footage, it's hard to determine if the image is legitimate let alone what the supposed creature actually looks like.
Question: why is it when we get reports of 'mysterious creatures' like Bigfoot, Sasquatch or the Loch Ness Monster the only photographic evidence we have is grainy and unclear?
You would think in this day and age of high definition imagery we'd have better pictures by now.
Despite the bizarre and rather contentious looking photo evidence, the citizens of Santa Fe are highly convinced the beast exists and is responsible for terrorising its residents.
According to YouTube channel UFOmania, who revel in these kinds of kooky conspiracy theories:
The creature's shape is striking as it has not been connected with any known animal.
One person on YouTube claims to have come into contact with the unknown beast back in 2005.
The commenter wrote:
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 commenter claimed the creature has also been spotted 'in the Philippines' and 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.
Nothing like a good old wives' tale from my motherland to reinforce pride in your roots [to all the Filipino readers please don't take this as a slight].
If you are convinced by UFOmania's 'questionable' footage then, by all means, prove me wrong. Just don't go risking your lives in the process, I don't need your deaths on my conscience.
You can even take a page out of Steve Feltham's book, he has dedicated 26 years of his life looking for tangible evidence of the Loch Ness Monster.
Steve, who is originally from the south west of England, first came to Loch Ness in 1970 as a seven-year-old on a family holiday and was 'blown away' when he met a group of monster hunters who 'changed the course of his life'.
The self-confessed 'nut in a van' recalled how his obsession came about:
From that day, my passion for the mystery grew and grew. All through my childhood I'd read as many books as I could find about the subject and I'd argue with my classmates, that yes, there is a monster.
But what began as a hobby became a full-time career after a little soul-searching, when he gave up his job as a professional potter, bookbinder and graphic artist.
