The animal, being called a “dog-headed pig monster” for lack of a better name is described as a hybrid between a dog and wild boar. It seems to be attacking domestic animals like goats so it’s probably a meat-eater. So far no pictures or videos have been posted online, but the legend is growing so perhaps it’s just a matter of time.
Witnesses have said the animal resembles a pig from the neck down but has the muzzle and sharp fangs of a canine.
Of course, scientists say no such animal exists. But such pronouncements never seem to stop stories like this from taking off and it’s likely there are some dog-headed pig monster hunters heading for Namibia for a chance at cryptozoology fame.
But that name? Dog-headed pig monster? One of the reasons why the Chupacabra is so alluring is it has such a cool name. Like the Yeti. Or even Bigfoot.
So what to call this one? Forget Schweinehund… it’s taken. Vark hond?
