Unknown Species Attacks Soldiers
In 2006, soldiers deployed to Afghanistan began getting attacked by an unknown species. It attacked only at night while its prey was asleep. Soldiers were found mutilated and many have gone missing and it is believed the Department of Defense has covered up these incidents by telling family members of its victims that they were killed in action. To this day it is still unclear what exactly happened in 2006. But it has earned the nickname, The White Mamba.
