Here's a cryptid account from the past - but not too far in the past - which occurred in Victoria, Argentina. A woman emerged from her house one night to find a creature of humanoid type, perhaps a meter tall, showing an interest in her chickens. The creature was colored black. In fact, its blackness was emphasized, as though it were an intenser than usual shade of black, if you can have such a thing. Its hands were clawed. Its discoverer turned to call her husband. When she turned back, the creature was gone.
This incident is supposed to have occurred in 2008.
