A new born kid in Mauritius has long hairs and two vampire like teeth and talks! Better still he asks his mom to give him BLOOD to drink because he will not drink milk!! And worst the new born infant talks and predict that there are yet another 10 like him to be born in the world soon!Look like a Christopher Pike story book? Well no! This is actually true in Mauritius! Well it is true among the many illogical irresponsive minds here in Mauritius! Since the past week there is a rumor in Mauritius about a suppose to be vampire born infant from a couple at Pointe Aux Piment Mauritius.

From what I am hearing from EVERYONE since yesterday is that the newspaper Le Dimanche reported that

Good grief.  ::)

As a parent I can confirm that chidren do not develop the ability to drain your life force until they are 14. And even then not unless their friends are doing it...

This story is BS
however there are medical conditions which may explain vampire myths e.g. Porphyria

Quote
Porphyria has been suggested as an explanation for the origin of vampire and werewolf legends, based upon certain perceived similarities between the condition and the folklore

The photo of the child has also been placed there. Apparently many people who live in the neighborhood of the child say that they actually heard him talk.  ???

I wonder if it is scientifically possible that a child of one week old to talk  >:(

Talk and make noises which happen to sound like words are two different things.

The parent's wouldn't be looking for the odd few $'s for their story, would they?

Isn't the most likely explanation that the child was actually born some time ago and just 'appears' to be that age?

It looks like it's been photoshoped.  Big time.  I think it's a load of propaganda rubbish.

They're called 'canines', everyone does.

"Now you can believe this?"
No.
hehe exactly.
have you seen the picture? its ridiculous, looks like a poorly made, low budget horror film.
utterly ridiculous, some people have too much time.

have you scrolled down? i cant even put into words how.... stupid... that is. if this was a serious thing, the media would have splashed it everywhere, all lead by an aging actor in a white coat and a stethoscope.

Photoshop is simply too dangerous for stupid people

if you read the bottom:
"Woooooo! This would have been a front page Digg story if it would have been true lol. I wonder why many of my own friends are believing this story is true. :S Anyway buddies, no worry there are no vampires in Mauritius!"

even if this BLARING sign wasnt there, i cant take a 'journalist' seriously if they use "OMG", "Wooooo!" and ":S"

Clearly no one has pointed out the most obvious problem with this story.

Vampires don't procreate they breed via infection, like a virus.

Honestly, don't you guys know anything!

Vampire children definately do exist

Good grief.  ::)

You've obviously not met my kids! I've got five and there isn't one of them who doesn't try to bleed me dry every time he sees me!
