Argentina: Strange Creature In Entre Rios
A farmer from Argentina's Entre Rios province reported that "a
strange animal having quasi-human characteristics" caused damage
to his henhouse and had been seen prowling the farm-- located in
the rural department of Colonia Elía-- on several occasions.
The complaint was made at the Colonia Elía sheriffs' office by
Oscar Resteinor, who claimed having witnessed the strange
creature's presence around his home for some twenty days.
According to the "El Diario" newspaper in Paraná, the alleged
creature had yellowish hair of considerable length, claw-like
hands and left very large footprints.
Criminalistics personnel from the Uruguay Departmental Precinct
collected samples at the site from one footprint - between
human and animal - which included hair and other elements that
would lend credibility to the claim made by the rural producer.
Police elements found, upon reaching the sight, several large-
size prints measuring between 6 and 10 cm long, and including a
"claw-nail" stuck to a tree trunk.
Resteinor stated that relatives and neighbors stood nightly
guard around the house after having ascertained that the strange
creature had ripped through the henhouse roof and killed several
birds. Some locals claimed having seen an allegedly "light brown
animal" of considerable size fleeing from the site.
Last Saturday, around 20:30 hours, one of Resteinor's children
saw the creature prowling around the henhouse again. Accompanied
by a group of neighbors, the boy pursued the intruder, but the
strange creature got away.
