Description:

The origins of the ManBearPig are best described by the anecdotes of frightened native villagers, who saw the beast come down from the mountain on that fateful day. (Which day was the day the ManBearPig came, and whether the day would have been equally fateful had the beast not come down, is a discussion among many philosophers.)

Fervent, year-long arguments have been made about which animal part of the ManBearPig was sighted first. The most popular story is that from a young boy who, having heard something large and unnatural coming his way, dove into a small cave as the ManBearPig past. It was clear as day (though the day was cloudy) that only the piggish hooves of the beast could be seen, for the young boy had spread his fingers across his eyes, and could see only a little. (Yet another discussion among many philosophers is how physically probable the particular spread of the boy's fingers would block this or that sight; indeed it could be that the fuzziness of vision created by the edges of the boy's fingers only partially diluted the boy's sight, and thus he could also gleam the ManBearPig's piggish tail.)

A much less popular tale (though adamantly maintained in some circles) is that the boy had not in fact sighted the ManBearPig first, but that the beast had instead sighted the boy, which then elicited the boy to see the ManBearPig. Thus the boy had committed the second sighting, where the ManBearPig did have the first. (Of course this means the real discussion should be on what the ManBearPig first saw, and not what the boy did, since the boy's sighting had something of a second-hand nature to the beast's sight. It is not what was seen of the ManBearPig first, but what was seen of it second; and more than that, it was what was seen of the boy first by the beast, which according to some was the boy's unkempt hair, or possibly his ragged shoes.)
