A photograph shows a mysterious 7-foot creature that has been terrorizing a village in Argentina.
The pictured creature is not terrorizing a neighborhood in Argentina, nor did it slaughter any pet dogs. Why? Because this demon is fictional, existing only within the fantasy universe of the Harry Potter series of books.

This image was created by manipulating a piece of concept art for Remus Lupin, a professor afflicted by Lycanthropy, as depicted in the work Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban. The image is available via the Pottermore web site, which also offers more backstory about the werewolf professor:

anyone ever hear of this?

Let’s follow the trail of an elusive Dogman… photo. I noticed this story from the Mirror, whose headline read “Huge 7ft beast described as ‘half human, half animal’ leaves residents TERRIFIED after ‘savaging two dogs’.” The story in the article mentions this that two dogs have been butchered (a German Shepard and a Pitbull), and that the photo was snapped by a terrified resident of Sante Fe, Argentina. It also describes the creature as being 7 feet (tall? long?). Incidentally, an Irish Wolfhound can get pretty big, but the thing in the photo is not an Irish Wolfhound.

So you believe Snopes is wrong and that this is a genuine animal in the photo?

I think the real answer here is that Harry Potter was a documentary, and the next series will chronicle the struggles of the South American school of Witchcraft and Wizardry, Le Macumbras.

If no one ever really sees this animal and there is only one grainy picture of it, is it really terrorizing them?

So you believe SNOPES is correct 100% of the time?

That's you. That's how you sound.

What the...?

I THINK you may have meant to post that reply to a different thread? Or perhaps you misunderstood the OP?

Cause it makes No sense whatsoever. No offense.

Good point, I can see why that would strike you as odd.

However, a Google search on the picture itself shows that within the last week at least C2C/iHeartRadio, LadBible, altereddimensions.net, and UFOgeeks.com have run the story. And likely others too then.

Altered Dimensions
LadBible
Coast-to-Coast (iHeartRadio)

Not all of us, but there's enough that those of us who do not, have now got permanent facepalm going on.
