Mysterious “black magic” creature scares Namibian village

Mysterious ‘beast’ terrorizes villagers

An unknown creature is reportedly frightening and threatening village residents in the Uukwiyu Uushona constituency (Oshana region).

According to regional councillor Andreas Mundjindi, the mysterious animal was spotted late last Saturday chasing dogs and goats. Mundjindi says that the beast even almost injured a young man on Sunday afternoon on his way home.

“This is an alien animal that the people have not seen before. We don’t have a forest here and only bushes. So, this must be black magic at play”, the councillor told Informanté.

The animal is said to be white in colour with a dog-like head and pig-like backside. Locals are now only working and walking in groups whenever they go somewhere – day or night.


Not much to go on in this story that has strong tones of occult magic. We’ll watch to see if this things gets a name and becomes the next cryptid du jour to cause panic (or a media flurry).

    I’d like to visit a place that’s so exotic they have “constituencies” rather than towns or counties and such.

    But regarding the animal, if it has the head of a dog, there’ s a good chance it actually is a dog. Maybe a dog that’s been pigging out on neighborhood goats and chickens and other tasty critters.
