Santa Cruz El Chol has been the scene of a mysterious birth following sightings of strange lights.
Residents of the Central American village are convinced that a pig born with a human-like face is the result of tampering by extraterrestrials after strange lights were spotted in the sky on the night of its birth.
The poor pig, which is one of a litter of 11, has been described as looking like a cross between a human and something from the Alien movies. Farmer Laureano Escobar Arias said: 'I was shocked - it was a really terrifying experience. It looked like some kind of alien creature.'
