As we all aware that there is a tense situation in the Manipur state at present about the attack by animal or group of animals on livestock and possible attacks on human beings, most vulnerable being kids, particularly at darkness(night time). Need of the hour is: How to understand it? What is the model to explain the attack? What are the preventive or/and precautionary measures to be taken up to curb or to stay safe from the sacry event?
Is there really a mysterious Animal like Allien or is the attack carried out by existing normal animal species? The present situation can be fit into two models: (1) Migratory_model (2) Mystery or Allien_model
In the mystery or Allien_model, there is a mysterious Animal species like Chupacabra and operation is being out by him or her. Existence of such animal is also reported in other regions of the world and there is a chance that it could have come from neighbouring country like Burma. The description as narrated by eyewitnesses who have seen the animal in darkness nearly matches to this animal. Also, reported events elsewhere also attract our mind to this kind of creature. Nevertheless, nobody tries to capture a photo of the creature specifically by those people particularly lilong event.
Thus, what prevention or precaution are required. Try to take a photo of the creature. CCTV footage will help to solve the problem. We must stay alert for our safety whatever it is. We can plan for an event and install the night_vision_CCTV can capture the entire episode. Otherwise, wait for the recession of the cold winter season and onset of the warmer summer season will naturally diminish the problem. Build the forestry and natural ecosystem of wild animals and don’t disturb their home. Whatever it is either a wild animal or mysterious animal, please #do_not_kill the creature rather try to capture_using_nightVision_CCTV what_is_the_truth

This phenomena is not happening for the first time India. Only last year has witnessed similar attacks In Odisha. Earlier years too have also have witnessed similar attacks but since these attacks happened at different periods of time in locations far from each other, they were not seriously considered or connected by the state or central governments. Each time the series of incidents were forgotten a few months later when the incidents stopped.
After the first reports of such attacks in Puerto Rico a few decades ago, where specific body parts have been selectively (almost surgically) removed, attacks of a similar nature have been reported and officially recorded in other South American countries, The United States (the well-known cattle mutilation incidents), Britain, Ukraine and now India. It was in Puerto Rico that the suspected mysterious animal acquired it name - the ‘Chupacabra’ meaning 'goat sucker', since the victims were completely drained off blood leaving on the carcasses behind. In some other cases, intestines, genital organs and parts of the face being removed have been reported from different incidents. Whether these body parts were consumed or not is not yet established by any evidence.
In each of the incidents in India, the so-called 'panel of experts' quietly hushed up the news of the incidents after a brief investigation by blaming wolves (Uttar Pradesh Wolf incident and Pavagada Wolf Incident, Karnataka) or pranksters (as in the case of the infamous Monkey man incident that terrorised Delhi in 2001. There are political compulsions too, to hush things up as the governments fear large scale panic if the media and information is not controlled. As it is, social media in the North East has gone slightly berserk.
Firstly, anyone familiar with wildlife and jungle predators must know that such behaviour is not exhibited by any hunter. Killing is done strictly for food and not as a sport. Therefore such unexplainable behaviour over such a large geographical spread cannot be the work of one member of the species alone. Secondly, even if one member exhibited unusual behaviour, how can it be possible that that multiple members of the same species begin to demonstrate such deviant behaviour. Highly unlikely.
A closer look at the descriptions of various eyewitnesses and human attack victims clearly establish some common elements which are very similar to those from other countries. The description of the Manipur predator is very similar to that of the South American description of the Chupacabra. It is important that serious researchers of this incident among private investigators across make efforts to record details of these incidents, as a base for further investigations as these incidents have been steadily on the rise across the world. The government will have nothing to do with these anomalies as it fears ridicule if it accepts the Chupacabra story. There lies the tragedy of the matter.

I agree. It must be wild animals only. But the appeal for protecting eco system will be like shouting in vacuum, For sincerity and TRUE education are the least desired qualification in this society. Think of their mentality . Who will listen? Laws are there. Who follows?

Somebody says they attacked the human being also. What is the plan of the govt tackling the situation? Only saying not to kill the unknown may not be the rt soln.

Good contribution to realise the fact. I would like to save them. Please don't kill them.
