'Bloodsucking creature' sparks hunt in China


Posted on Tuesday, 1 March, 2016 | Comment icon 19 comments

Could the creature be some sort of large dog ? Image Credit: CC BY 2.0 Angell Williams
A mysterious animal is responsible for killing more than 200 chickens and ducks in the village of Pudong.
The unidentified predator, which has left little in the way of clues save for a four-toed webbed footprint and a hole the size of a football in a wire fence, has been eluding authorities for weeks.

What makes the case particularly unusual is the fact that the creature doesn't appear to eat the flesh of the birds that it kills but instead drains each body of blood before moving on to the next.

The attacks have become so problematic in the region that the police have started nightly patrols.

Experts at the nearby Pudong Forestry Station believe that the animal could be a badger however the scale and nature of the attacks, coupled with the size of the bite marks, suggest otherwise.

Some of the villagers believe that some sort of large dog could be responsible and while others have suggested that the creature might have come from the nearby Shanghai Wild Animal Park, officials there have confirmed that none of their animals have been reported missing.

The mystery beast - whatever it might be - continues to remain at large.

Hilarious! Some kind of mutant vampire duck with wire cutters for jaws? Sinochupacabra would be a great name for it. Send Travel Channel's Josh Gates over there and see what he can come up with...I can just see it now, he creeps into some deep dark Chinese cave and yells with surprise and then they cut to commercials. When they return to the program it turns out that a bat flew at him.

Sounds like a chupacabra. Which is also known as a dog with mange.

Good choice not to give it an Asian name. Wouldn't go over very well. Harte Pulled: "goat sucker" machine-translates into Chinese (and back), but UM can't handle the characters. *Sigh.* I tried.

1. I'd just love to hear how (indeed WHY..) they autopsied these animals to determine the complete blood loss... the pictures do not seem to show anything other than bloodied carcasses. 2. The footprint shown does not match the deion, and has nothing in it for scale, of course.. 3. This thing tore a football size hole in a wire fence, rather than climbing it..? No picture of that, of course..
