Mysterious 'Dog-Headed Pig Monster' Terrorizes Africa
Yahoo/LiveScience.com ^ | Feb. 27, 2012 | Benjamin Radford

Residents in northern Namibia, on the southwest coast of Africa, have reported being terrorized by a bizarre dog-pig hybrid creature.

The animal is said to be mostly white and unlike anything the villagers have ever seen, with a doglike head and the broad, round, nearly hairless back and shoulders of a giant pig.

The beast was spotted chasing and attacking dogs, goats and other domestic animals in this arid region not far from the Kalahari desert.

As often happens when rumors of monsters spread in rural areas around the world, some locals have taken extra safety precautions, such as traveling in groups and arming themselves with weapons.

In 1995 and 1996, some Puerto Ricans armed themselves against the vampire beast el chupacabra; last year, Malaysian residents patrolled the streets searching for the mysterious orang minyak, or "oily man" creature that had recently terrorized them.

What could this monster be? One Namibian official, regional councilor Andreas Mundjindi, was quoted in Informante newspaper as saying, "This is an alien animal that the people have not seen before. We don't have a forest here, only bushes. So, this must be black magic at play."

Some people in the area trace the beast to one old man rumored to be a warlock or witch doctor, suggesting it's his pet (or, what witch-hunters hundreds of years ago would have called a "familiar").

How did you find the pic of the creature so fast?

Sounds like an orc. I'd check around for a goblin or hobbit nearby.

A “Dog-Headed Pig Monster?” I can deal with that. A “Pig-Headed Dog Monster” is a different story completely and would send me running off screaming.

Thanks Free ThinkerNY. News from Namibia:
The animal is said to be mostly white and unlike anything the villagers have ever seen...
I'm surprised they haven't accused it of being a witch, or being some deceased resident under enchantment by some witch.
