It is attributed to the haunting, described as a mixture of chicken, lizard and monkey, the death of at least four people in the neighborhood, and several attacks on farm animals and sites.
The last human death from which the animal was the author, which occurred two years ago, victimized a boy whose testicles were pulled by a toothed beast while the victim was swimming in a river in the region, according to a survey of the association. There are reports, however, of a death caused by him in 1970 in the locality.
According Leandro Henrique dos Santos, general secretary of the association and responsible for the newspaper "The Spit", three candidates presented themselves for the service, but only one was chosen because it presented the best "fitness" to tackle the task.
He reported that the candidate named Daniel Pinto, 37, signed a commitment by exempting the association, if you suffer injuries or be killed by the creature. Also according to reports of Santos, the cage has been placed at a point Carmo River in Mariana.
The exact location was not disclosed, nor the date on which the "human bait" should spend 24 hours in it. Care is to preserve the stalk of onlookers, who could scare the "Caboclo of Water."
Santos blurted out, however, that the experiment should be done this weekend. Regardless of whether or not capture the beast, Pinto will receive the award stand being up 24 hours inside the cage.
The structure left inside the bed of the river, but near the edge, so as to keep only the lower part of the submerged cage, which is open. Pinto will company a goat inside the cage, as the creature also has a predilection for the species, as well as calves and chickens.

The expectation is that the Caboclo D'Água in the enclosure between the bottom of the cage. At that moment, the brave volunteer Daniel Pinto should climb the structure and out through an opening made in the top of it, closing the door and capturing thus the terrible creature.
A pool team, strategically hidden near the cage, try to make pictures of supernatural being, while a nurse will be ready if Pinto suffers a malfunction in an attempt to leave the room.
"He did a resistance test on the spot and was approved. Tested the candidate for two hours and evaluate their attempt to leave the cage. He did very well and was the fastest ', reported the Secretary-General.
