Police have forced to quash rumours that a small cat-like creature with a human head had been found in Malaysia.
SCROLL DOWN FOR PICTURES- VIEWER DISCRETION ADVISED
The clips of the eerie and bizarre creature were reported to have been filmed in the Pahang area of western Malaysia.
It showed the bald pink-skinned creature with four limbs and a human-like head. It has sharp claws on all four limbs, two pointy teeth and thin black hair.
However, officers were forced to deny the existence of the animal, despite videos and photographs circulating online.
State police chief Datuk Rosli Abdul Rahman said that the photographs were “untrue”.
“Checks revealed the images were downloaded from the internet before it was shared on social media,” he said claiming that the discovery was made in Pahang.
“I hope the public will stop circulating news about the alleged discovery.”
The pictures are thought to be of a ‘silicon baby werewolf’ toy sold online.
Police added that no sightings of the supposed creature were reported.
The picture of the bizarre cat-like beast circulated on social media after it was reported to have been found at the Pahang border.
The post claimed that the creature was being held in a laboratory at an unidentified location.
Earlier this year, a goat with a human-like face terrified an Indian village and puzzled the internet. Footage of the odd animal swept the web after the goat was discovered in an unknown part of India.
It appears to possess the facial structure of a human due to its delicate nose and lips. The goat’s lips appear to be bent upwards, forming a pout on its face and its nose resembled that of a human rather than the snout of a goat.
