Bizarre images show an armadillo apparently attacking a young calf in a field – where three baby cows are reportedly found dead and gutted.
The unusual incident was recorded in a field in Benito Juarez in the province of Buenos Aires, Argentina, and shared on Twitter by Miguel Eduardo Mejia in a post that was viewed more than 125,000 times.
In the video, a mother cow is seen standing over her newborn who appears to be in distress on the ground while an armadillo looks to attack his diaphragm, before the cameraman traps it and carries it away.
According to the uploader, three dead newborn calves were found in the field with their guts hanging.

Miguel Eduardo Mejia claims that the mysterious creature is probably a killer weapon, saying: & There were three dead before the culprit was found.
& # 39; I've never seen anything like it. An armadillo that attacks a living calf. & # 39;
Armadillos have powerful legs and large front claws – which they usually use for digging – and are known to eat small vertebrates, insects, larvae, plants and some fruit, although they occasionally eat bait meals.
Some are known to sometimes carry rare diseases such as rabies – this can take a long time to develop, but this can cause symptoms such as & # 39; fever & # 39; and & # 39; excitement & # 39; are being displayed.

Armadillo's are territorial and mark their homes with urine, faeces and odor exudates. It is known that males become aggressive to keep their rivals away to increase their chances of successful mating.
When threatened, they can dig shallow ditches where they nest to prevent predators from attacking them.
Many commentators were concerned that the armadillo is actually the mythical & # 39; Goatsucker & # 39; monster was, also known as a Chupacabra.
A Twitter user said: & # 39; Could it be the Goatsucker? & # 39;
Another said: & # 39; Have you found the Goatsucker there? Could it be the answer to the other mysterious deaths? & # 39;
A third wrote: & # 39; The mystery of the Goatsucker has been solved. & # 39;
Another said: & # 39; I would never have thought that an armadillo could do that to a calf! It is the first time I have seen it and I am astonished. & # 39;
