An artist's depiction of the ucu


According to The Unexplained Mysteries, the ucu "is a reported Bigfoot like creature thought to live in the mountainous regions in and around Chili and Argentina. The Ucu is described to be the size of a large dog and walks erect, it is also thought to prefer the more tropical regions of the Andes mountain range. According to natives the Ucu likes to eat payo, a plant with an inside similar to cabbage, and emits a sound like uhu, uhu, uhu, which Ivan T. Sanderson compared to the noises reported by Albert Ostman, who claimed to have been held captive by a family of Sasquatch in 1924."

A woman identified as Pascuala Alzogaray rode her horse over fifteen miles in the middle of the night for help from the police because her and others supposedly saw the ucu. She says the creature resembled a gorilla, walking on two legs and with the aspect of "an accursed being". "Something must be done about it, it's the Ucumar," Alzogaray told the police.

Those over at the Ghost Theory weblog think that it might be a spectacled bear (below; also known as the Andean bear), which could actually fit the bill rather nicely.
