Late Breaking Chupacabra News


The legend of El Chupacabras, as it was known in Spanish, started to grow in about 1992, when Puerto Rican newspapers El Vocero and El Nuevo Dia began reporting the killings of many different types of animals, such as birds, horses, and, as its name implies, goats. While at first it was suspected that the killings were done randomly by some members of a satanic cult, eventually these killings spread around the island, and many farms reported loss of animal life. The killings had one pattern in common: Each of the animals found dead had two punctured holes around their necks.

Some witnesses reported seeing a small, dark or green figure around the areas of the killings, giving police and news reporters the feeling that the chupacabras could, in fact, be an extra-terrestrial figure.

Soon after the animal deaths in Puerto Rico, other animal deaths began being reported in other countries, such as the Dominican Republic, Argentina, Bolivia, Colombia, Peru, Brazil, the United States and most notably, Mexico. Both in Puerto Rico and Mexico, El Chupacabras gained urban legend status. Chupacabra stories began to be released several times at American and Hispanic newscasts across the United States, and chupacabra merchandise, such as t-shirts and baseball hats, were sold.

It is possible that the animal deaths could have been produced by satanic worshippers or by disease. However, neither of those two theories were ever proven. No hard evidence of the deaths being caused by an extra-terrestrial or by a strange animal ever surfaced either, however.

Certain South American rain forest natives believe in “mosquito-man”, a mythical creature of their folklore that pre-dates modern chupacabra sightings. The “mosquito-man” sucks the blood from animals through his long nose, like a big mosquito. Some say mosquito-man and chupacabra are the same.

In July of 2004, a rancher near San Antonio, Texas killed a hairless, dog-like creature (the Elmendorf Creature) that was attacking his livestock. As of yet, no one has been able to determine just what the creature is with testing of the bones continuing at a university in California. In October of 2004 another animal was killed by a rancher in the same region, closely resembling the Elmendorf Creature. A third was spotted by the zoologist as she was on her way to identify the dead one. (via Wikipedia)
