A few readers may give me a little stick over this post being that I’m a little late in discovering its topic. There’s a strong possibility many of you may have read about the mystery of Thailand’s strange creature before. Then again I’m sure there’s a few of you like myself who live in a cocooned world crammed full of alcohol and nicotine, and have never heard of this mystery at all.
Take a look at the short 50 second YouTube video which shows photographs of a Thai community paying honour to a strange creature which is obviously dead and has been sprinkled and covered in talcum powder making its appearance even more grotesque. One theory is the creature is the body of a deformed baby goat.
I spent a fair amount of time trying to find out where and when the creature was found. My search failed miserably. I was unable to place where in Thailand the ‘being’ was discovered but it appears the photographs first appeared in the media about three years ago. This year they have resurfaced once again on internet forums and websites.
You can clearly make out the creature has a tail, ears and goat like feet. The swelling is almost certainly due to the body being in a state of decomposition. Now I can hear many of you shouting hoax, wait a minute, perhaps I’ll join in. Then again maybe not.
My research took me to a couple of ‘mystery and investigation’ forums and the general consensus was the pictures were not fake. There was a strong feeling the creature was not an alien but more likely a deformed baby goat or cow. The photos were apparently shot in a Thai village which offers the question whether the mystery is a community hoax or indeed one set up by a select few astute locals.
I cannot find any answer to this puzzle but the explanation could be very simple. The images could have come from some discarded movie and been picked up off a Bangkok film studio floor. The easy thing to say is it’s one giant hoax. Perhaps you know the answer to Thailand’s strange and mysterious creature.
