A mystery killer, called the “Beast of Bolivia,” after the location of Bolivia, North Carolina, is said to be terrorizing the area.
Bolivia is situated on the border with South Carolina. A total of 148 people in 45 families reside in the town.

An unknown predator mauled a pit bull and killed two
puppies in Brunswick County, and residents fear it’s the same animal that killed
three dogs in September . No one has reported ever seeing the animal.
The county’s animal control agency investigated the animal’s tracks, droppings
and other clues but couldn’t determine what attacked the dogs. Locals call the
unknown animal the Beast of Bolivia.
Some residents and experts said the predator may be a bear, a wayward panther or
cougar, or even a wolf because 3-inch paw tracks were found at the scene.
Many suggest the predator came from the nearby Faircloth Zoo, which had a lion
and a tiger before it closed more than a year ago. Animal control officials said
the animals were sent elsewhere.“Mystery Beast Kills Animals in S.C.,” AP/Source: The Star-News, December 12, 2007.
