The Goatman hoax is back in India and this time with additional images of dead bodies, creating scare among WhatsApp groups. We received these images on our WhatsApp helpline 7700906111 in which the text claims that it is an awareness message for people to be safe in Haryana.
The text sent along with the collage of graphic images reads like this, "कृपया सावधान रहे।जींद हिसार हासी भुना में १५ से २० लोगो की टोली आई है। उनके साथ बच्चे और लेडीज है और उनके पास हथियार भी है और आधीरात को किसी भी वख्त आते है और बच्चे के रोने की आवाज़ आती है कृपया दरवाज़ा न खोले। प्लीज ज़्यादा से ज़्यादा ग्रुप में शेयर करे यह हरयाणा पुलिस की तरफ से मैसेज है पुरे भारत ५ से १० दिन में फ़ैल जाना चाहिए।
(Please stay alert! A group of 15-20 people have come to Hisar, Haryana. They have children and kids with them and also have weapons. They come during the night and when they come, one can hear the noise of a child crying. Please, do not open the door. Please share this in as many groups as possible. The message is from the Haryana Police and should be shared with the entire nation in 5-10 days.)When we searched on YouTube, we found a video published in July 2017, showing the same images titled 'कृपया सावधान रहें yeah alien se' (Warning- The images may be disturbing for the viewers. Viewers discretion is advised.)
This is not the first time that the images (of the goatman and the big animal feet) have been used on social media with a text suggesting that the Goatman has killed many people. Not only people, but sheep also in the past. Hindi website Lallantop had reported the story in July 2017 of the images going viral in Rajasthan and mentioned that the image was taken from a website called Deviant Art. When we checked the website for the picture of the Goatman, we found the below given details.
