A Monstrous Mix

Posted by: Nick Redfern on June 12th, 2012

Nearly a century after it occurred, I seriously doubt there is any chance, at all, of getting a 100 percent definitive answer to a very odd 1920s case referred to in a new post at the Center for Fortean Zoology’s Still on the Track blog.

Quoting from a newspaper report of the day, it states:

“…Great consternation was caused in Kowloon City one night recently when many excited people claimed to have seen a strange and mysterious animal variously described as a bear, a kangaroo, and an orang outang…”

Without doubt, quite a combination!

Here’s where you can find the complete story, if you want to try and figure out what the curious critter really was!

    Quote: “Remember c. 1910 was only 12 years after the New Territories came under British control.”

    12 years is a very long time.

    If it’s not a total hoax, it could be a grey kangaroo. They are quite large and muscular close up. How someone could confuse a kangaroo with an orangutan, or a bear, is another matter.
