El Chupacabra

This page is about the El Chupacabra"Goat Sucker"

It is so called because of the way it sucked all the blood from Puerto Rican goats. The Chupacabra has been leaving fear in its tracks for many years now.

First spotted in Puerto Rico in 1994, the Chupacabra has since migrated off the island and has recently been spotted in many locations including South America as well as the US. Although it was named because of its choice of goat-blood as a meal, the Chupacabra has reportedly attacked and devoured the blood of a wide variety of animals including dogs and sheep. As far as it is known, there have yet to be any human fatalities.

Due to the distinct technique the strange animal has of killing its prey, it is very easy to tell if the Chupacabra was involved in an animals death. Animals are found with puncture wounds in their neck and most of their blood removed. Often, the victim's organs have disappeared even though the only wound is a small hole in the animal's neck. Reports of laser-like cuts on the victim's ears are also common. Although some people say they have seen the Chupacabra's tracks, in many cases there are no signs of blood or tracks around the dead animals.

APPEARENCE:

It is hard to describe the appearance of El Chupacabra because sightings greatly differ. Most say it is either grey or green. Some say it has a large lizard-like tongue, others say it has wings.

A bipedal creature (one that stands upright like a human), the Chupacabra has had many sightings where its height was reported to be anywhere from 3 and 6 feet tall. Some say it walks, some say it flies, and some say it has a kangaroo hop.

WHERE DID IT COME FROM?
Like the descriptions of El Chupacabras' appearance, people's ideas of its origin widely vary. Many say it's a new species, or a relative to the panther. More eccentric scholars say it is a dinosaur or an alien, or even some believe it to be a form of experiment escaped from a laboratory. Another theory is that there is a portal to another dimension that stretches from Puerto Rico across to South America.

One theory is that an alien spacecraft contained El Chupacabras' as pets or for study, and they somehow escaped during an accident, or a crash.

Tales Of A Goat Sucker



 
 
   For many years, the Mexican legend of the Chupacabras, a Spanish word for "goat sucker," was thought only to be folklore.  Who would actually believe that a large four-foot tall creature, possibly from another world, would hunt livestock just to drink their blood?   The myth of the Chupacabras seemed  absurd.
    However, in December of 1994, on the island of Puerto Rico, the age-old fable of the Chupacabras became a reality.  Animals were found dead and mutilated.  Villagers discovered cattle, sheep, goats, rabbits, and ducks, with their corpses drained of  blood.   Punctures marks " to " in diameter were dug into the tissue of the animal's head, piercing their brains.  Soon afterward, similar attacks were reported throughout South America and Mexico.
    Along  with the increasing animal mutilations, sightings of the actual creatures themselves were reported.   Many eyewitnesses claimed that they saw what looked like a "Grey" alien, a being from another world, with a short body, bulbous head, and large thick black eyes. Observers, of the monster, described it as standing on hind legs, and having "spines," down its back.  Others noted wings on the beast, and reported it flying through the night time sky.
   For many months, reports of sightings of the dreaded Chupacabras grew and it's territory expanded deeper into Mexico, and even into the United States.
    For example, in the Miami neighborhood of Sweetwater, the creature attacked 69 farm animals.
    Across the country, in Arizona, a May 12 headline in the Arizona Daily Star read "Goat sucker fears cause nationwide panic."  Three weeks later, a similar headline in the Tucson Weekly reported "Hellmonkeys, Chupacabras Comes to the Sonoran Desert."
    In California, a large flying bat-like creature was spotted in Poway, a small town north of San Diego.  To this date, the sightings continue to spread further into America, with reports now coming from Washington State.
     As a result of the Chupacabra's apparent migration, more and more attention has been given to the animal.  So much, in fact, that tee shirts in the beast's image have been produced and fake "Chupa" footprints are being sold. On the internet, web pages have been produced to provide information, and in the media, countless articles and reports continue to be written about it's existence.  Chupa madness has expanded to the point that, in late 1996, a festival in Zapata Texas was held in the creature's honor
    But the fame of the Chupacabras doesn't stop there.  In early 1997, the television show " The X-Files," featured an episode concerning the nocturnal brute.  On talk radio, the weekly Art Bell show "Dreamland," has had numerous guests, including UFOlogist Linda Molten Howe, updating the public on the growing situation in Mexico and Puerto Rico.  Bell has, on occasion, even played a song dedicated to the Goat sucker.
    And so it goes on.  The attacks grow, sightings are expanding in numbers and the monster continues to spread it's claw prints throughout North and South America.  With all of this excitement, the fever surrounding the creature has yet to reach it's peak and the legend of the Chupacabra grows.
