Shapeshifting monster in Steytlerville

The sleepy Karoo town of Steytlerville has reportedly been terrorised by a shapeshifting creature for over a month now. One man witnessed the creature changing from a man in a suit into a pig, then into a bat.

P.I.P.E. is planning to lodge an investigation into the sightings next weekend and, if the shape shifter does in fact exist, we are hoping to find concrete evidence of the fact.  As per normal, we will approach the investigation from a scientific perspective and rely on visual and audio evidence to document our findings.

Please contact us at paranormalpe@gmail.com should you have any information that might assist our investigation.

News24 has just reported that the creature has struck again.

Steytlerville 'monster' strikes again

2011-04-25 22:44
A ‘monster’ plaguing the sleepy Karoo town of Steytlerville struck again over the Easter weekend, Eastern Cape police said on Monday.

Another two sightings of the "shape-shifting creature" were reported on Sunday evening, said Warrant Officer Zandisile Nelani .

“Two men were walking near a tavern when they saw another man wearing a black jacket. One of the men, identified only as Nozipho, went up to the stranger and asked him, “What is your problem?” said Nelani.

A dog or a cow?

When the stranger did not respond, Nozipho went closer and saw that the man had no head. The man then turned into a dog that was “very angry” and “as big as a cow”, Nelani said.

He said that as Nozipho and his friend ran away, the monster allegedly turned on another group of people in the same road. “They said it turned into a big monkey, and then it was gone,” Nelani said.

He said that since the monster was spotted near the tavern, people were afraid to go there at night.

Last week police were told by residents that the monster changed shape while one looked at it. One man had reported that it changed from a man wearing a suit into a pig and then into a bat.

There had also been rumours that the monster could fly. Previously, the monster had only been spotted near the church. It had even been seen peering through the windows during a service, but had vanished by the time the congregation came outside.

Nelani said that the community had dubbed the monster “Bawokozi”, meaning ‘brother-in-law’.


Sightings of the monster began over a month ago when it was seen by mourners attending two separate funerals, Nelani said.
