And it isn't the first time it has been spotted in the town of São Gonçalo de Campos, near Feira de Santana, in the state of Bahia.
The first person to have seen the legendary beast was a local man called Pingo.
He described it as a five-foot black monster that charged at him.
A close-up shot of the mythical being has split commenters, with some believing it to be a man wearing a gorilla suit, while others believing it to have a "wolf-shaped head".
The government has slapped a 9pm curfew on the town, clearly taking the reports of the wandering beast seriously.
