A strange looking “animal” which resembles a small bear and leaps with great agility has reportedly mutilated numerous farm animals, including ducks, pigs, and even dogs, causing great alarm among the locals. The men have organized nightly “hunting parties” in order to look for the animal. According to different testimonies the bizarre creature resembles a bear but the size of a dog, perhaps 45cm in height, with a yellow chest, and large fangs protruding out of its mouth. It apparently has the ability to leap over tall hedges and animals pens. Madeleine Flores, a community leader reports that so far about 14 households have been affected, they have asked for assistance from the Agricultural Ministry.
