It has never been proven to exist, though it is nearly as well known as Bigfoot and the Loch Ness monster. According to the January 22 Daily Star, “Goat farmer Javier Prohens was having lunch with friends when terrified farmhand 54-year-old Bricio Saldivar alerted them to the bodies of the strange creatures on the outskirts of the small town of Monte Patria in the east central Chilean province Limari.” Prohens described his farmhand’s reaction: “He was clearly scared and said he had been up at the old winery and found two strange bodies.” The partially mummified carcasses were found amid hay bales in a cellar, and “at first we thought they might be bats, but when we looked closer, we realized they had to be something else as the heads were too big for bats. . . .
