MANILA, Philippines – A Catholic parish priest in the town of Pozorrubio in Pangasinan has urged residents to put a stop to a monster hunt and instead strengthen their faith in God.

Fr. Hurly John Solfelix said he is planning to include in his sermons that there is no such thing as an “aswang,” a vampire-like creature in Philippine folklore.

Residents of Barangay Villegas in Pozorrubio believe that such a creature exists after several animals went missing in their village.

Armed with spears and machetes, the residents have been scouring the streets in search of the “aswang.”

Police, meanwhile, have advised residents to avoid leaving their homes at night as it may give robbers the opportunity to steal their belongings.

Chief Inspector Satur Ediong said the residents should leave the pursuit to the cops.

The residents once again took to the streets last Tuesday night after some of them allegedly saw the creature.

“Dati ‘di ako naniniwala hanggang sa nakita ko kanina,” said Rino Igoy, one of the residents.

Police, however, continue to warn residents that it may only be a modus operandi by criminals who want to take advantage of unattended homes.
