Mirror logo Mirror 12/10/2017

A group of teenage girls were left terrified after spotting what they believe to be a GOBLIN during a countryside stroll.

The youngsters were out walking near the village of Taco Palta y Marta in the north-western Argentine province of Tucuman, when they saw the strange looking creature.

One of the girls claims to have filmed the 'goblin' emerging from trees as she and her friends walked through fields.

Mobile phone footage appears to show the shadowy creature in the distance as crying and wailing can be heard out of shot.

One of the teenagers can be heard in the background asking: "Is that a goblin?", while another replies: "It's a goblin", before they turn and flee in fear.

As the small figure walks towards them, the girls are heard crying and shouting: "Run! run!"

The video was posted online where it split opinion over whether it was genuine or not.

User ‘Roberto Cardozo’ commented: "Magical creature, it rapes you five times before touching ground."

In February this year, in the neighbouring province of Santiago del Estero, a group of children said they were too scared to play football after spotting what they believed was a goblin near the pitch.

Goblins are monstrous mythical creatures first mentioned in European folklore in the Middle Ages.

They are usually described as small and grotesque, mischievous or evil, and greedy, especially for gold and jewellery. They often have magical abilities.

Tucuman is the smallest and most densely populated of the provinces of Argentina.
