The mystifying discovery started a rife speculations of alien visitors until the mystery was solved by a local veterinarian. Dr Magdalena Braum of The Crags Veterinary clinic carried out an autopsy, identified the body and confirmed that it was a baby baboon killed by a bite to the head.
Unfortunately, the reason behind the misshapen dried body is because it was dragged around by the mother for three to four weeks by their tail section before finally discarded.

Inspite of the findings, some people still don’t believe it is a baboon. Many residents “still wonder” and believe that the creature is of something else. They say that the teeth did not seem like a baboon. While the head was slack, the legs were still very rigid.
