This BBC News story from Uganda reads like an archtypcal fantasy story.
The hero of the story commisioned a blacksmith to forge a special weapon with which to slay the beast. Then he and a large number of extras fought the monster for an hour and a half before finally killing it.
I’ve always assumed that the dragons of European legend were travellers’ tales of African crocodiles. Which would make Mubarak Batambuze a modern-day St. George.
