A report from a totally reliable source -- an anonymous text message -- says Batangas is being menaced by a group of aswang on a truck.
I think it's a hoax. Don't you think it's suspicious how the message fails to say how the aswang were recognized? Did they drive their truck close enough for the texter to get a good look at their Official Aswang IDs? For all we know they could have been congressmen -- it's easy to confuse the two species.
But even if the report is bogus, it raises a timely question: isn't it time to update the list of Philippine mythological creatures?
