ARGENTINA: Police and Locals Chase After "Strange Creature"

They have not been able to deterimne if it is a man or an animal. The fact is that it prowls around houses, has killed several hens and left enigmatic traces...

Police and locals sought a strange creature at Colonia ElÃa in the eastern reaches of this territory in the province of Entre RÃos.

The police action came about when a neighbor reported that a person or large animal caused considerable damage in a henhouse behind his home, where it killed several hens. A footprint, hair and other traces were found at the site, which would give the claim credibility.

Oscar Resteinor, a resident in this rural area, reported to the Colonia ElÃa's sheriff's office that for 20 days now he has been witnessing the presence of this being, with clearly abnormal characteristics, prowling around his home. He claims that he has not been able to identify if its an animal or a person. It would have had yellowish hair of considerable length, claw-like nails, and it left large footprints, walking with its hind legs as would a human or primate.

After the attack to his henhouse, Resteinor and his family and neighbors began to keep a watch in order to catch the strange being, according to the "Analisis Digital" web portal.

The Entre Rios police admitted to having found several traces resembling footprints and hairs measuring between 6 to 10 centimeters in length, as well as a claw or fingernail embedded in a tree trunk.

Plaster casts were made of the footpritns, which were described as manlike, but larger and wider than normal.
