A Siberian devil?
by: Albert S. Rosales
Date: June, 1908.
According to data allegedly obtained by a scientific expedition in 1927 from the area of the Tunguska explosion (which occurred on June 30, 1908) just after the catastrophe, an Evenkian resident of a local hamlet reportedly encountered a bizarre creature, which he apparently captured and took to his home.
According to the description, the entity resembled more a “devil” than a human being. It was dwarf-like, a little more than a meter in height, with large green eyes, smooth shiny skin, with some protrusions on its forehead area and with a short tail. The local man kept the creature in his cattle shed. He told the other residents of the village that he had found the creature in a clearing amid a dense pine forest.
The creature was reportedly injured and very weakened. Despite the protests of his neighbors the man cared for the creature, feeding it and even taking it out for walks at night. (!) As a result of this all the local dogs from the village went into a barking frenzy while the creature was outside. Then the creature mysteriously vanished.
The man claimed that the entity had “walked away into the forest.” Soon after the man was stricken with an unknown illness, his hair and teeth began to fall out and he lost a lot of weight. He became very thin and eventually died (radiation illness?).
