Chupacabra VS. Muhnochwa!

Chupacabra may have been the unexplained demonic alien creature for the 90s, but I was starting to think the whole thing had gotten a little old. The recent appearance of the Muhnochwa or "face-scratching creature" in Uttar Pradesh, India, is like a breath of fresh air on the stagnant cryptozoological scene.

Unlike the "monkey man" hysteria that briefly sweep India a year or so ago, Muhnochwa seems to be much more than just a bizarre rash of unexplained sighting. So far it has claimed the lives of seven people buy scratching and burning them in the middle of the night. One other was killed and 12 others injured when the police tried to quell a Muhnochwa-induced riot.

Unlike authorities in the US and Central America, who tend to disregard reports such as Muhnochwa and Chupacabra, Indian authorities have been a bit more open minded. Police Deputy Inspector General K. N. D. Dwivedi, for example, put forth the theory that 'the assailant was a genetically engineered insect introduced by ?anti-national elements? from outside India to cause mayhem.' Authorities from the national intelligence bureau dismissed his theory as ridiculous, but then filed a report confirming that the villages were experiencing an extra-terrestrial invasion by a bunch of flashing lights "like a photocopier in the sky"

Personally, I'd like to see a celebrity Chupacabra VS. Muhnochwa cage match, the winner gets to fight a Coelacanth. .

Over.  End of Story.  Go home now.
