Residents of two West Virginia counties continue to report sightings of the abaguchie, a mammal that may have been imported from Costa Rica in the mid-1990s to kill rattlesnakes and coyotes. The creature is described as a “psychotic wombat” in The Cryptozoological Guide to American Mammalia. Asked if it attacks humans, game biologist Jim Evans said, “People are disappearing. Draw your own conclusions.”
