A Kentish monster ?

Not really. This interesting carcass, which incidentally, was stiff as a board and light as a feather was found in the Medway Towns. It's clearly a fox carcass, but interesting to note that maybe, just maybe...elsewhere on the planet this creature may be considered something more sinister. There have been several images across the internet over the years, of a similar creature which people like to call the 'goatsucker' or Chupacabra. A majority of these bodies turn out to be nothing more than the carcass of a coyote, dog, or in this case a fox.

In the UK there is much scepticism to the existence of so-called 'big cats', especially when no bodies of such animals seem to turn up. However, apart from kills on roads, fox, badger, and other native species remains, are difficult to find unless you know where to look, as in the case of this fox which was found under an old shed. The carcass appears rather ghastly but the creature was only around two-feet in length and had a few people fooled!

But, as Alan W. Bates 2005 work Emblematic Monsters: Unnatural Conceptions and Deformed Births…’ adds, ‘…having two arms and two hands, and a human visage, with only one eye in the middle of his forehead; the hinder part was like a lamb. A young man in the neighbourhood was supposed to have generated the monster by bestial copulation and that the rather, because he was afterwards found in the like beastly act with a mare; upon discovery whereof, he fled out of the country. This young monster was nailed up in the church porch of the said parish, and exposed to public view a long time, as a monument of divine judgement’
