Nigerian Cat-woman

The fear surrounding this event is not only palpable, but downright disturbing.

I feel as if I should write something more about this, but I think it speaks for itself. From the Nigerian Tribune:

Cat-woman in Port Harcourt, NigeriaThis woman was reported to have earlier been seen as a cat before she reportedly turned into a woman in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, on Thursday. Photo: Bolaji Ogundele.WHAT could be described as a fairy tale turned real on Wednesday in Port Harcourt, Rivers State, as a cat allegedly turned into a middle-aged woman after being hit by a commercial motorcycle (Okada) on Aba/Port Harcourt Expressway.

…Nigerian Tribune learnt that three cats were crossing the busy road when the okada ran over one of them which immediately turned into a woman. This strange occurrence quickly attracted people around who descended on the animals. One of them, it was learnt, was able to escape while the third one was beaten to death, still as a cat though.

…Another witness…said the woman started faking when she saw that many people were gathering around her. “I have never seen anything like this in my life. I saw a woman lying on the road instead of a cat. Blood did not come out of her body at that time. When people gathered and started asking her questions, she pretended that she did not know what had happened,” he said.

…[The woman] was later taken to a hospital for medical attention. It took the intervention of policemen to prevent the mob from killing her. [Bolaji Ogundele, Nigerian Tribune, Cat turns into Woman in P/Harcourt, Port Harcourt, 22nd May 2008].
