Fact Check:

Various articles and pictures shared heavily through social networking websites claim that a “White Dragon” was discovered and shot dead in West Malaysia by an Orchard owner in mid-2014. There also came up a video (first one in this article) describing same, which again, became popular. Let us analyze whether the said claims about discovery of a white dragon are facts or hoax.

Various Versions

The story in question was also shared on Facebook, saying that a “Naga putih,” i.e. white dragon has been shot dead. Then a user posted that it was ‘rediscovered’ in Pasir Gudang (Town in Malaysia), and another one posted to have seen it in Tanjung Puteri apartment in Johor Bahru, Malaysia. Again, there’s another version of story attached with these pictures shared on theworldofchinese.tumblr.com, which says a man found a “dragon” in his backyard that was hurt and still alive. It was also said that it was not known whether the animal is a real dragon or a strangely mutated animal.

The fact of the matter, as can be contemplated from the picture below (also visible in the first video), is that the pictures simply show a replica (sculpture of some sort) shaped like a white dragon. The YouTube user Mysterious Dolanan, who posted the first video (now deleted), has been sharing few such unrelated, unreal stories of dragon. What people thought was a real story of white dragon was just a prank! Chinese people (and others) show good amount of interest in knowing whether or not dragons exist; they in fact believe that when a dragon enters their house, it will bring ‘luck’.

Somewhat Similar Video in Past

A somewhat similar video in past (shown above) surfaced online in October 2013 claiming to show a Dragon Flying in Truro, England. The video keeps resurfacing online. A close look at the footage reveals the unusual low quality background at some instances in the video, hinting the video is manipulated. And from the about information of the O7TV channel that shared the video on YouTube in ‘Entertainment’ category, it is evident that O7TV is a ‘Video Agency’. The same channel shared another hoax video claiming to show UFO Aliens landing in Germany were caught on video.
