El Chupacabra

Australian Aboriginals call them chic ah bunnahs and in Puerto Rico, the island famous for harbouring their population, they are known as Chupacabras.

The first sightings of the terrifying and extraordinary Chupacabra occurred there in the early nineties although stories of similar beats have passed down through the ages.

In the late 1990's reported sightings began in the US and Chile. In recent times they have appeared in Nicaragua and India.

Descriptions range from a mix of vampire and marauding, furry lizard to a viscous red eyed alien like flying monkey, to a three foot rat-like creature, with horns and wings. 

Many in Puerto Rico, described the animal as having a "reptilian body, oval head, bulging red eyes, fanged teeth and long, darting tongue".

Puerto Rico has been long thought to be a UFO hotspot. Rumors of secret US military bases and reports of mysterious lights in the sky have persisted.

The massive Arecibo Observatory is located on the North part of the island. and Puerto Rico harbours a number of military animal research laboratories.

Chupacabra translates into 'Goat-Sucker', the name inspired by its' earliest attacks, where goats were found with their blood drained and with two peculiar puncture marks on their necks.

There have been reports alleging that particular organs were missing from some of the victim's bodies, without any visible way for those organs to have been removed.

It is one of the most closely studied beasts examined under the general heading of cryptozoology, the study of animals that may or may not be real.

Chupacabra's are said to have spinal quills which double as wings. 

It is claimed that the Chupacabra is accompanied by an unusually strong scent of sulphur, not unlike the demonic creatures of folklore. Witness Madelyne Tolentino claimed, "it jumped like a kangaroo and smelled like sulfur." It has also been known, in some cases, to have supernatural strength.

In one case, it allegedly tore a 16ft by 14ft iron gate off it's hinges to get to the animals. 

There has been rumor that the smell the creature emits is actually it's way of immobilizing the animals while it drains them of their blood. It is not only animals the creature is attacking, but also some humans.

Angel Pulido, from Jalisco, reported getting bitten by something that was "a giant bat which looked like a witch". Also in Mexico, Teodora Reyes showed marks which were supposedly caused by the claws of the Chupacabra

Speculation has placed the Chupacabra as a resident of another galaxy (see the truth behind the Chupacabra www.princeton.edu/~accion/chupa10.html), or a half-man, half-beast vampire who roams the countryside terrorizing farm animals.

Others say that the Chupacabra is panther-like.

The truth could even lie within the UFO phenomena, the theory being that the Chupacabra is actually the pet panther, which hops like a kangaroo, of some irresponsible aliens who let it wander around. Like obnoxious relatives who let their children rampage through the house. Interestingly this is the theory held by many associated with the mysterious photographs of wild panthers seen roaming in Australia.

They are said to be mascots and pets left behind by US military members who once served in areas where sightings have been made. These include parts of East Gippsland in Victoria where US personnel have served at the Sale Air Force Base. One of the big cats was filmed in the Blue Mountains (New South Wales) in May 2001.

In every Chupacabra case, a predator appeared to wantonly kill livestock (usually goats or chickens), then mysteriously disappeared. No meat was taken, and only a small bite to the neck was apparent. And though no photographs of the assailant itself exist, hundreds of photos of the dead animals are on record, eerily similar — drained of blood, but otherwise intact. And there are those eyewitnesses, from dozens of incidents in far-flung regions, all telling strikingly similar stories.

The most recent episode of attacks which could be related to the mysterious El Chupacabra occurred in India.

On May 15, 2001,100 people in New Dehli, were attacked by an animal with similarities to the Chupacabra.

Witnesses said that the creature was a monkey man with a hairy body and sharp metal claws. The animal was described as a little over a metre tall with a dark face, large eyes and a human-like body. Most of those attacked had been driven to sleep on the roof by the sweltering Indian heat. The attacks happened over a wide area and if there was only one of the critters investigators say it must have had wings to be in so many places at once.

The same newspaper followed up with a story on May 17 2000. Headed, 'Monkey Man Claims Two Lives', the correspondent stated that two people had died in the Indian capital after they jumped off roofs fearing the killer animal was nearby. One of the victims, a pregnant   woman jumped to her death after she heard people screaming, 'the monkey has come!'.  

Reports of the animal's appearance varied with apparent characteristics being glowing red eyes and even a helmet. Some said it changed shape from a monkey in to a tawny coloured cat-like creature.

The descriptions of the Chupacabra resemble certain dinosaurs from the Jurassic/Cretaceous period. 

The beast possibly uses it's tail for balance while it walks. One branch or mutation of the supposedly extinct sauroid race, Stenonychosaurus, was according to paleontologists remarkably hominoid in appearance.

Stenonychosaurus were less than 3 m long, and weighed only 45 kg.

It was a biped, and could rotate its lower arm to grasp objects with a three-fingered hand. The eyes were enormous, surpassing in size those of most modern land animals.

The brain was much larger than in living reptiles and approached that of some living birds and mammals in relative size. Stenonychosaurus dinosaurs, which probably fed on primitive mammals, embody a widespread tendency for the brain to increase in size through the history of life.

Scientists recently undertook a study to determine what the Stenonychosaurus would look like today and the dinosaurs had evolved.

The result was a bi-ped whose appearance resembles both Chupacabra's and Alien Greys.

Canovanas Puerto Rico
Angela Laje saw it one afternoon in her back yard when it came out of the brush and bit the family dog. "I think it belongs to the monkey family, but it isn't a monkey exactly," he said. ``It ran like a monkey and was about four feet tall, but it didn't have a tail". This led to the mayor of Canovanas, Jose' Chemo' Soto (below), setting traps baited with goats in an unsuccessful attempt to trap a Chupacabra.

Leon, Nicaragua

The carcass of a creature believed to be the Chupacabra was found on the outskirts of a small Nicaraguan farm 92 miles from the city of Malpasillo. According to the farmer, Jorge Talavera, he shot the creature three days earlier and left the remains for the vultures. Talavera told Nicaraguan newspaper, La Prensa, that the creature sucked the blood of 25 of his sheep in just 15 days, and his neighbour lost 35 others — nearly five sheep were lost per night.

Malpasillo veterinarian Gioconda Chévez told La Prensa, "It could be a hybrid animal made up of several species, created in a laboratory by genetic engineering." But local authorities want to be sure.

The remains have been taken to the University of Nicaragua at Leon for study by veterinarians and biologists. Preliminary findings have uncovered some interesting anomalies, though specifics are few in number. According to a report on the Fortean Times (www.forteantimes.com/), professor Carlos Gomez, a biologist and specialist in morphology, thinks the animal could be a normal dog. The anomalous findings could be a result, he says, of the decomposition process. But final reports and DNA testing are not yet in, and other specialists are scratching their heads over the abnormal findings.

October 1999


Brazil's Corriero Braziliense newspaper reported eight goats and three sheep dying of single wounds to the neck. Other Brazilian eyewitnesses claimed to have seen an animal that may fly or leap with powerful, monkey-like hind legs, attacking animals and humans both. Most witnesses also claim to have seen fangs. Whatever killed the livestock hadn't eaten them, but inexplicably drained the animals of blood and left the meat behind.

June 29, 1997


A program aired on Brazilian television with the news that there had been several sightings of the Chupacabra's in Brazil, as well as an apparent killing of one. Two men were fishing at night when they spotted something coming out of the lake. They were unsure what it was, so they shot it, and the next morning they discovered that it was a Chupacabra. They cut off the creatures head and now are still in possession of it. On the television program, they showed the head and the interviewers asked the man to cut off part of the bone for analysis, but the man refused. Another part of the program had an American UFOlogist, who is living in Brazil, claiming that he had captured a live one. He refused to show it to local authorities, stating that he would only allow American investigators inside his house where the creature is kept. I'm sure he's hoping to get money for his "find".  He described the creature as having "very large, slanted, glowing red eyes. Face is flat, perhaps simian-like, body some say is covered with spotted skin "like a frog's" or has "spikes on its head and back" with "chicken legs" that have a 3-toed foot about six inches long. Such tracks have been found and photographed in dirt near dead animals. This creature has been seen to hop, or fly, from the ground to a tree or from trees to the ground."  "It attacks so fast, everything from horses to sheep. It sucks out the blood completely."

28 dead rams found with puncture marks

May 11, 1996

The Chapucabra was spotted over the weekend May 10/11 1996 in Tucson Arizona by local resident Billy Nubian. Mr. Nubian currently resides in his trailer located on north Flanwell ave. Around two a.m. Mr. Nubian and his companion Nancy Pontiac awoke to the frantic bleats of their two goats Mattie and Delilah. Upon rushing from the trailer Nubian spotted a large "ratlike creature" wrestling with Mattie. "Tha little pisser had her pinned down in her pen, an when I came out an it seen me it let out this unhuman shriek like some fuckin' banshee or somthing!" said the visibly shaken resident. Ms. Pontiac emerged seconds later and saw nothing, and claims William is "Crazy as an elephant in heat". She did however admit to hearing the goats worried bleats, and does not dispute the monsters existance.

Here is a quote from the Arizona Daily Star Sunday May 11, 1996

Anxiety has swept Mexico as newspapers report dozens of sightings and attacks by goatsuckers, which reportedly look like 3-foot rats with wings and enormous teeth and suck the blood of livestock and humans.

"A lot of Mexicans believe in extraterrestrials, so that's what they think they are,'' said Cristina Fernandez, a Mexico City resident.

So severe has panic become that Mexican officials warned last week that important ecosystems are being threatened as rural farmers set fires in caves to kill off goatsuckers, which they think are related to vampires.
