Residents of the Indian village of Boliyar are in a panic after many of them witnessed a small strange being wandering around at night. In this case, “strange” means the being is the size of a small child with a human face that speaks in an unknown language and sometimes runs on all fours. Alien? Human-cat hybrid? Something else?
Boliyar is on the Netravathi River near the southwestern coast of India but far enough away that it is surrounded by a forest where a strange creature could hide. The reports of sightings seem to begin around December 5th. One of the first witnesses said she felt she was being followed at night. The follower was this child-sized creature that chased her to her house while shouting the unknown language, then ran into the forest
According to the local police who have been investigating the reports, the eyewitness accounts have some variations, possibly due to the encounters all being at night. One person thought it might be a big cat because it moved on all fours while another described it as a gorilla because it ran on two legs. Other than the unknown language, the only other sound the creature reportedly makes is a loud cry like a child.
