Builders Find Creepy ‘Goblin’ In Abandoned Warehouse

A BIZARRE creature like a “goblin foetus” has been found by horrified builders at an abandoned warehouse.

Experts were baffled after the curious discovery in the historic town of Santa Maria Regla in Mexico City.

Builders uncovered the mysterious specimen during construction work.

It has a small body, four limbs, round head like a baby, a disfigured face with a pronounced nose, claws, and a tail.

Authorities say samples are being analysed by university researchers.

The foetus itself is being exhibited at the Museo de los Duendes – translated as Goblin Museum – in the municipality of Huasca de Ocampo.

Mayor Francisco Mayoral Flores said the mummified remains could be from a “goblin or a nagual.”

In Mesoamerican mythology, a nagual is a human with the ability to shape-shift into an animal counterpart.

The mayor said: “Everyone can value it themselves based on their beliefs and traditions.”

Huasca de Ocampo is a well-known region for legends related to goblins, naguals and other mythical Mayan entities such as aluxes.

The mayor added: “If it had been found in another municipality, it would not have been relevant.

“But due to the themes of goblins and the mystical here, there is a cultural and social demand to give it importance.

“Doctors and vets have stated that it is a malformed foetus of a cat or dog.

“However, samples have already been taken to determine a scientific explanation.”

But residents have branded the idea the creature is a goblin “ridiculous”.

One resident asked: “Are you telling me that goblins are born human-sized and get tiny as they grow?”

Another said: “Is this a joke?”

And a third wrote: “Good thing it’s a magical town!”

It comes after Mexico’s president was mocked for sharing a photo of what he said appeared to be a mythological woodland spirit similar to an elf.

President Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador did not appear to be joking as he posted the bizarre picture on social media suggesting it could be an “aluxe” – a mischievous woodland spirit in Mayan folklore.

Obrador shared the snap on Twitter, saying: “I share two photos of our supervision of the Mayan Train works.

“One, taken by an engineer three days ago, apparently from an aluxe; another, by Diego Prieto of a splendid pre-Hispanic sculpture in Ek Balam.

“Everything is mystical.”

The photo – taken at night – shows a tree with a branch forming what looks like a halo of hair, and what may be stars forming the figure’s eyes.

Engineers and workers are in the Yucatan peninsula, constructing a tourist train that is the president’s pet project.

But Obrador was ridiculed on social media for sharing the bizarre snaps.

One user commented: “I thought it was a parody but it is the president’s account.”

A second said: “The Aluxes are as ‘real’ as your ‘achievements’.”- The Sun
