Welcome to part 3 of Creatures I hope we never run into. Lets jump into it.

The Dobhar-chú

The Dobhar-chú was found in Ireland. In the 17th century, a lady went down to wash clothing in a lake. She screamed and her husband went down to check on her. He found the Dobhar-chú on his wives bloody body. He killed it by stabbing it in the heart, and as it died it let out a noise, and its mate rose from the water. The man ran and the Dobhar-chú followed. After a while, he killed it too. There have also been more recent reports. The next Cryptid report was in Kentucky.

The Pope Lick Monster

The Pope Lick Monster was reported in Louisville, Kentucky. It was reported in the late 1940’s. It is reported to be a mutant cross between a human and a goat. It has been said that it is a Deformed human body with strong goat legs. Some claim it uses Hypnosis and makes people fall asleep on the railroad, others say it uses a Human-like voice to lure people into the oncoming trains. It is also said that it jumps down from a gate onto cars or lures people into the lake and attacks them with a blood stained ax. Legend says it is so un-settling, people who catch a glimpse of it jump off into the lake.
Moving on to the Cherufe of Chile.

The Cherufe

The Cherufe are said to be in Chile. In legend, it is a humanoid made out of rocks and molten lava and it hangs out in volcanoes. Cherufe’s get all the blame for volcano eruptions and meteorites.The only thing that will take the Cherufe’s mind off of destruction, is a human sacrifice thrown into the volcano, preferably a young girl. The Cherufe’s favorite pass time is igniting and hurling the decapitated head of the human sacrifice out of the volcano. Some claim it looks like a reptilian while others claim it to be a dragon like figure. If you run into any of these creatures, you, my friend, are very unlucky
(or stupid. why would you be in a volcano in the first place?).
