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.
