Bizarre Muppet-Like Beast Discovered in Namibia

Bizarre Muppet Beast

In the south African nation of Namibia, a bizarre muppet-like beast has been shot and killed. Unlike its distant relatives — the abominable snowman, bigfoot, and the chupacabra — this one has been caught on film. Locals in Namibia were escorting a shooting party through the country when they found the body of the strange muppet-like beast, and they picked it up and brought it back to the town with them, according to the Telegraph.

Witnesses to the event said that locals saw the creature scavenging for food. One member of the shooting party shot and wounded the beast, and it ran off into the brush. Locals tracked it to its nest where they found three more similar creatures with the same look and size.

The wounded creature attacked one of the shooting party, and it was shot dead. The others escaped into the brush

Namibian authorities are conducting a full forensic examination to determine what the creature is.

Scientists say there are millions of unidentified species out in the jungles that have yet to be identified. While most of them are sea creatures, insects, and single-celled organisms, scientists sometimes discover entirely new mammals, reptiles, and amphibians that no one knew existed.

Recently a new species of viper, Matilda’s Horned Viper, was discovered in the jungles of Tanzania. The viper is one of three new species of snakes discovered in the last thirty years. It has evil looking horns coming off of its face, and, while poisonous, it is not very venomous.

What do you think the muppet-like beast is?

This muppet-like beast shown above is reputed to have a penchant for molesting underage boys, paying out hush money to the tune of tens of thousands of dollars and mooching off of taxpayers with subsidies through the Corporation for Public Broadcasting. Beware ... and be afraid.

I don’t know what it is. But I’d like to know how to get rid of them already. Otherwise a government is going to kill thousands of humans in the pursuit to save it.

Yes, I would say that is most likely a human with some birth defects.

“Yes, I would say that is most likely a human with some birth defects.”

But...
“The locals tracked it to a nearby lair or nest where they found three more creatures of similar size.”
How could that be?

Either, somebody lied to make a good story (most likely), or the primitive locals toss deformed babies out into the jungle to fend for themselves, like we used to when we were primitives (less likely).

No, if you search images for anencephaly, you get babies looking exactly like it.

Sure enough.

To #21: Best picture of a Hildabeast I’ve ever seen.

New scifi horror movie coming to a theater near you soon:

“It Came From the Sea”, starring Hildabeast, Wild Bill Clinton as Capt. Ahab (I’ll Nail Anything in the Sea), and Nancy Pelosi as Peaquod.
