“This must be the work of black magic,” an official in the Oshana region of northern Namibia told the Informante newspaper.
Regional Councilor Andreas Mundjindi said residents have spotted the beast chasing dogs and goats, and a young man said it tried to attack him as he walked home.
Several residents said they are now too scared to walk alone. One theory has it that the beast may have come from the home of a local elderly man.
“Everyone believes it is his beast and even he knows that we think so,” an unnamed resident told Informante.
I'm hoping that these accusations don't lead to anything like mob violence. Odds are that this man has just made some enemies in his community who would be perfectly happy to have an excuse to drive him out or worse. On the other hand, if anyone out there knows how I could summon up a dog-headed pig monster feel free to share the spell. It would be quite the hit at parties.
