Residents in Namibia have reported being terrorised by a strange half-dog, half-pig hybrid creature.

The bizarre report has generated considerable fear among rural populations who have taken to travelling in groups and arming themselves before venturing out. The creature is said to be white with a dog's head and a giant pig-like body, residents reported seeing it attacking dogs, goats and other domestic animals in the region. "This is an alien animal that the people have not seen before," said an official.

"The animal is said to be mostly white and unlike anything the villagers have ever seen, with a doglike head and the broad, round, nearly hairless back and shoulders of a giant pig."

I saw another site that they speculated it was a Honey Badger. Others thought it was probably a feral pig/wild boar cross where the body resembled a pig and the head a wild boar. Others thought it might be a stock European dog, like a bull terrier.

The Blue Light Bullies Brigade (for the benefit of those unfamiliar, they are politicians who drive around in small convoys at high speed with blue lights and sirens, breaking traffic laws with impunity, barging their way through the traffic, sometimes cause accidents but are not held accountable, and often on private business or late for an appointment!) The one's that also shout Kill the Farmer Kill the Boer and actually does it. That should definately be on unexplained mysteries, simply because it will always remain an unexplained mystery at how they are getting away with it and nothing of ... [More]

A bear. A pale-coated one just like the Syrian brown bear is, which used to live in the Sinai ( a desertic and mountainous region of Egypt). This creature may be a descendant of Agriotherium and perhaps the same as Nandi bear.

It is possible that it is an albino wild boar. The fact is albinos are sensitive to sunlight hence it makes it agressive. As for the dog like head it could be a misconception. However if this thing truly is a dog headed pig it may be in someway related to the chupacabra.
