Scientists confront a 'witch'

In Italian folklore, the term striga was widely associated with a witch, with a reputation as being very scary. 

The Italian striga, so the folk tale goes, could turn herself into a terrible bird of prey, with huge talons, a misshaped head and breasts filled with poisonous milk.  She preys on sleeping men and children, drinking the men’s blood and offering her poisonous milk to the children.
