Fake news site CelebTriCity is claiming a human-gorilla hybrid baby was born in Egypt. This was supposedly announced by the "Egyptian University of Science". For some reason 'Indians' are also involved with the story:
Indians are calling him "Hurilla" At just seven weeks of age, 'Hurilla' weighs approximately 18.2 pounds and is 24 inches long; They expect him to grow to approximately 250 - 300 pounds with a height not to exceed 6 feet.
Of course no such creature exists, for the following reasons:
- CelebTriCity is a well known hoax site that recently posted about things like a death hoax, fake KKK membership allegations and a non-existent beheading.
- There is no such thing as the "Egyptian University of Science" (although Wikipedia list a University of Science and Technology in Egypt)
- The picture that goes with the story is actually an exhibit in the International Cryptozoology Museum in Portland and depicts a Sasquatch baby "reborn" doll.
