Confusion has engulfed an entire city after a father was caught eating his three-year-old baby alive and drinking her blood.
The bewitched father reportedly snatched the toddler from his mother, scaled a fence and ran into the bushes where he ripped her apart after biting her neck and then proceeded to eat her alive in the town of Tabubil, Western Province of Papua New Guinea.
According to reports, the local councilor, John Kenny, the man was spotted by two boys who were climbing a coconut tree nearby and raised an alarm.
Kenny said, “He was just laughing at the boys and continued eating the flesh and sucking the blood.”
The cannibal father later demonstrated the gory act again at a police station in the presence of shocked onlookers, including policemen and the town’s senior district court magistrate, Patrick Monouluk.
A commentator said, “This is the talk of the day on the streets here. All parent are fearing for the safety of their children because cannibals are on the loose here.
“Believe it or not I saw him eating the baby by piercing its body with his teeth while blood spilled from his mouth. Everybody watched him with fear.”
Another person had this to say about the country, “Papua New Guinea does have a past cannibalistic culture. But mostly they ate people that had already died of natural causes.
“However this practice caused many people to die of a prion transmitted disease spongiform encephalopathy, locally known as Kuru, similar to mad cow disease, but only found in humans.”
Cannibalism, black magic, sorcery, and other violent practices that are no longer in vogue are common practices in Papua, New Guinea.
