Villagers attacked by mysterious creature

An unidentified animal has been attributed with multiple attacks on villagers in remote Indonesia.

75-year-old farmer Aris Kuna was working in his garden when he was inexplicably attacked by something which he later described as a cross between a bear and a wild boar. A week later a plantation worker was attacked by the same animal while gathering fruit. He described how it had made a strange noise and stood up on its hind legs while launching its assault. This time however the encounter didn't end well for the mysterious assailant; the worker it had attacked used a sickle to defend himself, killing the creature in the process.

The carcass was later laid out for others to come and view but nobody was able to identify it. To add to its repertoire of unusual features the creature appeared to sport a long mane and sharp wolverine-like claws. "In all my life venturing into the jungle, hunting and such, Iíve never come across this species," said one local.

Images of the creature can be viewed - here.

"An Indonesian plantation worker and a 75-year-old farmer got the shock of their lives when they were attacked by an unknown animal species in two separate occasions earlier this month."

What would a stink badger be doing in Indonesia? They live in Indonesia. hey live only on western islands of the Malay Archipelago:Sumatra, Java, Borneo and (in the case of thePalawan stink badger) on the Philippine island of Palawan; as well as many other, smaller islands in the region. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stink_badger

If you search for this on Google, you will find that this was reported in August and there is one story on several websites. I believe this to be phony based on this. Although it would be awesome to find some species that lived like this

What an interesting little animal. Too bad it was killed in the process of identifying it. It must have been out of it's range somehow if none of the villagers knew what it was.

Sounds like either a rare species yet to be officially discovered or a result of a crazy experiment that escaped or was let loose to "wreak havoc".
