'Fox-human creature' enthralls zoo visitors

The bizarre spectacle of a half-fox, half-human has been attracting crowds to Karachi zoo for years.
Known as Mumtaz, the 'creature' appears to possess the body of a fox and the head of a human that not only looks real but can actually talk to zoo visitors when they go in to see it.

Far from being a crytpozoological enigma however this bizarre cross-breed is nothing more than the body of a fox with a man's head sticking out from under a table to make it look as though its part of the animal.

33-year-old Murad Ali is the man behind the myth and has been playing the character of Mumtaz at the zoo for up to 12 hours a day. He inherited the role from his father who died 16 years ago.

"The people, who visit here, go away happy," he said. "And knowing that they feel happy makes me happy too. There is a bond of love between me and them. Life is very short; it should be spent spreading smiles."

The people obviously know it's fake, it's being done for fun/amusement. The only concern here is that the fox is being treated ok...long as that's being done then this is just a fun activity (probably more for the kids).

It's fake, but oddly creepy.

I'm annoyed by all the comments on how fake this is and how stupid these people are for believing it. As Lilly already said, they obviously know it's fake. These people aren't flooding in to see the miracle fox human. They're coming to see a corny sideshow for some novelty entertainment.
