Chinese villagers are searching for a mysterious bloodsucking predator that has killed more than 200 chickens and ducks, mainland media reports.
For the past week police and residents from the village in Pudong, close to the city of Shanghai, have been hunting for the culprit round the clock, the news portal Eastday.com reported on Saturday.
The predator has left behind just one tantalising clue – a muddy webbed four-toed footprint.
Villagers said the footprint was the size of five-year-old child’s hand.
The unidentified predator has only sucked on the blood of its prey, rather than feeding on its meat, the report said.
Residents said many of their birds had died after being bitten during the evenings over the past week. Some rabbits that had been raised by farmers in the village had also died in the same way, the report said.
