From Creatures Wikia
Telekinetic Creatures are a glitch from Creatures 1. They are Creatures that can retrieve an object despite being far away from it. This was originally believed to be controlled by a gene referred to as the "witch gene", though it is now thought that any Norn can be "telekinetic" if they believe they are close enough to pick the object up (even though they are clearly not). The glitch was fixed in Creatures 2.
It has also been theorized that this bug may be linked to the prevalence of wallbonking.
