EL CHUPACABRAS: BLOOD-SUCKING CREATURE FROM THE NETHERWORLD, PART 2


 


CHILE


In April 2000 El Chupacabra was up and running again, this time in Calama, a mining town in northern Chile. Farmers woke up one morning to find their livestock had been decimated. Common sense blamed the puma, or any number of smaller predators that inhabited the wilderness bordering the town. But common sense can't hold a candle to El Chupacabras. Seasoned observers suspected Nasa involvement, even suggesting that El Chupacabras was some kind of eccentric field trial in genetic engineering. Though the Chilean government concluded that wild dogs were responsible for the attacks, it didn't stop the rumours. Three El Chupacabras "eggs" had been discovered in the desert.


But the most common of the reports described a creature known as a "Grey" alien humanoid, mainly because of the shape of its head and eyes, and what most eye witnesses relate as the body of a bipedal, erect dinosaur, but with no tail. Its head is oval in shape and has an elongated jaw. Two elongated red eyes have been reported, together with small holes in the nostril area, a small, slit-like mouth with fang-type teeth protruding upwards and downwards from the jaw. The creature has two small arms, each with a three-fingered clawed hand and two strong hind legs, again with three claws.

The Chilean chupacabra is reported to have a strong, course coat of hair, the color varying from sighting to sighting. However, the colors are consistent with the times of the sighting (same colors during the day, different colors at night). This leads many to believe the Chupacabra can change like a chameleon, to blend in with its surroundings and avoid detection.


The Chupacabra hunts mainly at night (although there have been several daylight sightings) and the attacks show that the creature exhibits some kind of intelligence beyond that of the average night stalker. Its victims have a regular pattern of wounds, a triangular series of punctures into the neck and jaw bone that pierce the brain and reach the cerebellum, which instantly kills the victim. This is a euthanasia technique. Less intelligent predators would not even be able to make these kinds of attacks with such precision. Also, the wounds are cauterized, some think to keep blood loss of the victim to a minimum. Some animals have identical punctures on their bellies, but other than these wounds, there is no other trauma, abrasion, scratch, or bruise to be found.


As one might expect, the Government of Chile has attributed this unusual and horrific find to a 'pack of wild dogs.' They explain further that the canines must have been separated from their normal food supply and ventured into unknown territory. Of course, this is always a possibility. However, this explanation does not account for the fact that the goats and sheep were not consumed, nor does it justify the reason all blood was drained from each corpse.


Another theory originates from a veterinarian, "Dawn Ramirez" who examined 15 of the dead stock. Her analysis? She feels this is the work of, "A mutated bat of great size." She added that in the 40 years she has been caring for the animal world, she has never seen anything like this. She contends that the possibility exists that this bat could be the end result of genetic and biotechnological creation.


Just what NASA doesn't need is a connection to this event in Chile. Some of the local population contends that the military and NASA are involved. NOTE: NASA denies any connection in this regard, totally.


In April 2001, local residents formed a neighborhood watch to protect livestock that was being attacked by these strange creatures. The farmers' dogs, which are usually fierce and do not hesitate to attack strangers, are afraid and would rather hide when the creature is near. It has also been observed that the "Chupacabra" is afraid of light and will run away if lights are turned on.

The following report took place in Calama;it has may similarities to other reports in the area. Initially the "Chupacabra" was observed on the roofs of houses adjacent to another property where domestic animals are kept.


Thursday, June 20, 2002. A "close encounter" with one of these mysterious beasts was reported by Maria Gavia, a local day care worker, living in the area of Manual Rodriguez;in the town of Calama. Maria lives in a housing complex on San Antonio street and was badly shaken by her experience which took place in the middle of the night. The creature was making loud noises and woke up a number of local residents, Maria remarked:


"It was not a man; it did not look like a person. It resembled an ape and it jumped all over the roof. It passed right in front of my window and then it came back making all sorts of noise. I didn't want to turn on the light because I was very afraid and my windows don't have screens. I was afraid the animal would break in. I cannot explain exactly what happened;all I know is I was very scared".


Twelve hours after her strange experience, Maria was still very nervous and concerned about the event and continued:


"It was after midnight. Suddenly I heard loud noises from the roof. The creature went by my window. It jumped a lot;making very long jumps, unlike the way a person jumps. Suddenly I saw my father coming out of the door on the first floor and the creature jumped. It jumped so far that it landed on top of the neighbour's house. No person jumps so long without running and gaining momentum. Then it finally left. I was able to listen to the neighbour yelling "There it is, there it is". It finally ended up across the street. I knew that because the dogs across the street began barking and howling. Moments later there was nothing but silence".


Maria's father is of the opinion that the creature could have been on their property for some time before they were aware of its presence. Much earlier their two dogs had been acting strangely;they failed to meet him in the entrance and, when they didn't come out to the patio, he had to call them. Her father said:


"One of the dogs seemed scared; it was hiding and did not want to go anywhere. The other one was nowhere to be found."


He also remarked about the strange creature:


"I have never seen anything like that, as if it was a monkey that jumped on two legs and sometimes three. It was about 1.5 metres tall, perhaps more, but it was stocky. It made a lot of noise. I could not sleep during the entire night".


Maria's father mentioned that someone had been seen chasing the creature as it was leaving but despite all the noise there was no damage to the sheet metal roof. He added:


"The noise was definitely made by something heavy but it left no track or trace of itself".


Although none of the farm animals were harmed, the local residents were left living in fear.


CHUPACABRAS IN MEXICO


Hundreds of attacks have been reported in Mexico and in some cases more than 60 animals have been slaughtered;all of them had circular holes, usually in the neck. Whereas Chupacabra attacks in Puerto Rico were limited to animal mutilation, in Mexico it has been claimed that the creature has attacked people.

On March 4, 1996, Armando Gutierrez of Tampico, Tamaulipus State mentioned the puzzling attacks on dozens of hens, four goats and fifteen chickens in the tiny village of Altamira, located about 2km from Tampico. The animals had wounds on their necks and had been left completely drained of blood.


Teodosio Mendez Menza, owner of the Amecuaca Ranch, lost sixteen sheep, while at the same time, Bernadino Rodriguez of La Barranca de San Miguel experienced the loss of a further four from their pen. Barragan remained unmoved, repeating that some natural cause, (pumas, feral dogs etc), was behind these incidents.


By May 3, 1996, the death list had continued to rise, particularly in Tlalixcoyan, Veracruz. On May 3 six dead sheep were found with marks on their necks and in the vertebral region. According to a witness from El Nido, a dog like creature harassed his flock, and when he attempted to shoot the intruder, it crossed a barbed wire fence without either wounding itself or making a noise. This is frighteningly reminiscent of certain attacks on sheep in Cornwall during 1978.

Townspeople armed with rifles and machetes took to the countryside the following day in the hopes of finding the predator. No trace was found, but some witnesses claimed to have seen an enormous bat flying at a low altitude. Humberto Cota Gil, chief investigator for the Universidad Autonoma de Sinaloa claimed that the killings were the responsibility of a tiny Brazilian vampire bat and conveniently ignored all the eyewitness testimony to the contrary. In Los Mochis, Topolobampo , forty sheep were killed at Rancho La Remolacha This prompted a massive mobilization of soldiers and armed police equipped with infrared lights, shotguns, electrical equipment, helmets and riot shields.


Another report says that thirty sheep were slain by a Mandrill-like creature in the state of Hidalgo.


One strange evening the village of La Loma, Jalisco suffered a series of bizarre attacks. Ten sheep were killed and a local man named Jose Angel Pulido claimed to have been attacked by the "Chupacabras". He described the strange predator as a monster, over 80 cm (2 1/2 ft) tall, and weighing approximately 30 kg (66 lbs), with ashen-dark "feathers" and sizable wings.


In the spring of 1996 the first killings were reported from the mainland United States. A goat was killed in Donna, Texas on May 15 and at about the same time 69 goats, chickens, geese and ducks were killed in the heavily Hispanic Sweetwater district of South Miami.


CHUPACABRA INVADES THE U.S.


El Chupacabras has succeeded in blazing a horrific northward migration: the mysterious predator originated in Puerto Rico, tore across Mexico in a bloody swath, and has now, with great fanfare, attacked the United States of America;as a wildfire icon of modern folklore, if not an actual menace of unknown taxonomy with a thirst for goat blood.


How the Chupacabra managed to migrate from Puerto Rico to the U.S. mainland is not clear;the two countries are separated by 1000 miles of water. But it is clear that descriptions of creatures seen in California are the same as the Puerto Rican Chupacabra. Full-fledged U.S. sightings of the Goatsucker have only been reported in recent years, although there are antecedents that some have retroactively linked to El Chupacabras. As long ago as the 1950s there were reports of a "vampire kangaroo" creature in the Southwest, the Midwest and the Southeast. This beast has generally been described as a large mammal with powerful hind legs, looking like a cross between a kangaroo and a rat, which kills animals and sucks out their blood;all in all, a remarkably familiar characterization. Variant descriptions of this creature as a flying, pterodactyl-like reptile have also circulated in the Southwest.

The first major American sighting of the Goatsucker took place In March 1996 in Miami, Florida. In the predominantly Hispanic south Miami neighborhood of Sweetwater, 69 various animals were slain overnight. The massacre included goats, geese, ducks and chickens, all of which had wounds that looked like bite marks. The livestock were not drained of their blood, though, and police and investigating zoologists felt that the attacker was a large dog. The animals' wounds were consistent with canine bites, dog hair and dog footprints were found, and an entryway had been dug under a fence just as a dog would do. Still, there was at least one eyewitness to El Chupacabras in Sweetwater. An elderly woman in the area described seeing a large, doglike creature. "It stood up on two legs and was hunched over like this with big arms and looked at me with these red eyes," she said before a phalanx of TV news cameras.


One young man saw Chupacabra from a balcony and gave authorities the common description of 3 to 4 feet in height, spikes along the spine, glowing eyes, wings and long fangs. Chupa had stepped in to the backyard of the young man's home and attacked and killed the family's goat. The goat had been gutted and drained of blood.


Some 15 people in and around the same neighborhood have reported sightings of Chupacabra. The reports have been significant enough that the local Hispanic television station devoted a full hour to coverage on the beast.


Although authorities feel that Chupacabra is alive only in the imaginations of frightened people they are still treating the reports of any sightings with monitored respect. The slaughter of goats, chickens and family pets has increased at an alarming rate in many areas. Until the perpetrator of these crimes is captured and identified one cannot rule out the possibility of the heinous creature known as Chupacabra.


In Coleman, Texas, a farmer named Reggie Lagow caught an unknown animal in a trap he set up after the deaths of a number of his chickens and turkeys. The animal appeared to be a mix between a hairless dog, a rat and a kangaroo. The mystery animal was reported to Texas Parks and Wildlife in hopes of determining what it was, but Lagow said in a September 17, 2006, phone interview with John Adolfi, founder of the Lost World Museum, that the "critter was caught on a Tuesday and thrown out in Thursday's trash."

In November of 2005 , A motocross racer named Kolt Jarrett spotted a medium-sized to small-sized creature in Floresville, Texas, At the Cycle Ranch Motocross Park. He was with seven other friends in a golf cart on trails near the back of the park. Kolt spotted it in tall grass and small saplings which it was folding over like it was as strong as an ox. Kolt described it as having spikes down its back with a wierd shaped head, with possibly having horns. It was a brownish red and had wierd shaped objects, possibly wings, on its sides. Kolt belived it to be the El Chupacabra.


In April of 2006, MosNews reported that the chupacabra was spotted in Russia for the first time. Reports from Central Russia beginning in March 2005 tell of a beast that kills animals and sucks out their blood. Thirty-two turkeys were killed and drained overnight. Reports later came from neighboring villages where 30 sheep were killed and had their blood drained. Finally eyewitnesses were able to describe the chupacabra. In May of 2006, experts were determined to track the animal down.


In mid-August 2006, Michelle O'Donnell of Turner, Maine, described an "evil looking" dog-like creature with fangs found alongside a road, apparently struck by a car, but it was otherwise unidentifiable. Photographs were taken and several witness reports seem to be in relative agreement that the creature was canine in appearance, but unlike any dog or wolf in the area. The carcass was picked clean by vultures before experts could examine it. For years, residents of Maine have reported a mysterious creature and a string of dog maulings.


On September 2006, the Lost World Museum acquired the remains of what may be a Chupacabra. Spotted, hunted and killed in late August 2006, 15-year-old Geordie Decker and 16-year-old Josh Underwood of Berkshire, New York handed over the bones of a small fox-like beast that hopped, had yellow eyes and an orange strip of hair going down its almost bald gray back, to Museum owner John Adolfi. Its bones are currently on display on the Lost World Museum's web site while further examination and investigation continues.


The Elmendorf beast is a strange, hairless dog-looking creature with a blue-gray color and strangely-shaped teeth. Macanally says, "First thing that came to my mind, is surely everybody's gonna think this is a Chupacabra. But it's so odd because it has no hair." One woman who saw a photo of it says it's exactly how her grandmother described the Chupacabras she saw.

When the rancher took the skull to experts at the San Antonio Zoo, biologists could not identify it. The zoo's Terry DeRosa said he thought "It may be one of the hairless dogs that perhaps you see in Mexico." Mexican hairless dogs are generally much smaller. This animal is believed to have weighed around twenty pounds. Some experts who have observed photos of the corpse feel that the animal was afflicted by sarcoptic mange, and had not originally been hairless. Another expert expressed the opinion that the animal's condition represented some sort of unrecognized environmental catastrophe, that other small predators with sarcoptic mange have been observed elsewhere in the country recently, and that the subject needs urgent study.


The condition of the Elmendorf Beast's jaw is not a result of disease process. John Gramieri, the San Antonio Zoo's Mammal Curator thinks it's a mix between a dog and a coyote;a coydog;with very strange teeth. He says, "It's clearly a member of the dog family, a family candidate. For whatever reason, this animal had a very poor fusion in the [jaw area]…so it allowed that lower jaw to spread in a way that is not normal for any mammal, actually…It apparently had some very bad skin ailment, and that skin ailment made it go bald except for the top of its body." Gramieri, as well as area ranchers, believes that there are more of the creatures out there. Area ranchers believe that they are breeding.


The jaw structure is not a deformity in the usual sense because it is symmetrical. It is not a mammalian jaw at all, but appears more akin to the jaw of a reptile. There is nothing in the genetic code of the mammal that would enable a jaw structure such as this. This raises the possibility that intentional genetic manipulation, or a highly unusual natural mutation, has been involved in the emergence of this species.


The rancher says, "I want this one to be a new species;or at least something that somebody has never seen in a cross between two different ones."


In October 2004, two animals which closely resemble the Elmendorf Creature were observed in the same area. The first was dead, and a local zoologist who was called to identify the animal noticed the second while she was traveling to the location where the first was found. Specimens were studied by biologists in Texas. The creatures are thought to have been canines of undetermined species with skin problems and facial deformities.


These sightings occurred only one-quarter mile away from the site where the Elmendorf animal was shot on October 8. It was at the Pollok, Texas, home of the Womack family. Mrs. Womack's daughter, Stacey Womack, lives twenty miles away in Lufkin where she worked for 20 years as a vet technician and three years in the early 1990s as a zoo keeper at the Ellen Trout Zoo in Lufkin. Today she is a dog breeder. Stacey has a lot of experience with animals around Lufkin and Pollok and could not understand what her mother meant when she called Tracey in a very emotional state on Friday afternoon, October 8, asking her daughter to come help because there was a strange animal under the house.


Report from Stacey Womack, dog breeder and former veterinarian tech assistant, Lufkin, Texas:

"My mother was just sort of hysterical because they had killed something under the house and they did not know what it was. I thought, 'This is the most ridiculous thing I've ever heard.' They don't know whether it's a coyote or a dog?! I told my mother I would come out there and bring my digital camera. About one-quarter mile from my mother's house, I had to hit my breaks because an animal crossed the road in front of me and it was running with its head down and its tail down and it did not have any hair. It was a strange looking sight and my daughter-in-law was with me and she wanted to know if it was a wolf. I told her it wasn't a wolf and it was too large for a fox. So, we went on to my mother's house and went around to the back and there was the same animal an animal identical to what ran across the road. It was on the ground after they had just killed it and there was almost no blood. It was just red where the shot had went in (the eye). I was just totally dumbfounded when I saw it. At first glance, you would think of a deer's head on a kangaroo's body. The ears were real thick and large. It did not have any hair on it. The skin tissue was necrotic. It was just awful. I did not know what it was."


In Albuquerque, New Mexico, A 42 year old woman (Rebecca Tuggle) was on the way to her car when she heard a mysterious hissing noise. As she turned around she was terrified to see a creature partially resembling a lizard, a kangaroo, and a bat, with "rainbow-colored" spines running down its back. The creature stood 3-4' tall and grunted at her. The creature's hissing noise nauseated her and she nearly fainted. As with other sightings, the eyes were said to glow red and the animal smelled of a sulfuric substance.


The chupacabra has often been spotted in Michigan. A recent sighting occurred in Grand Haven, when a 42-year-old man claimed he saw it suck the blood out of a cat.


Recently, there has been a surge of chupacabra sightings in the United States, specifically in the suburbs of Washington, D.C., and outside of the Philadelphia, Pennsylvania area. However, controversy exists whether these chupacabra sightings are legitimate. To this day, its rampage of gruesome slayings has continued and spread to many parts of the world, including the United States, Mexico, even as far away as Australia.



The Goatsucker reportedly struck Texas's Rio Grande Valley in early May. A goat belonging to Sylvia Ybarra was found dead with three puncture wounds on its neck. It was the pet of 19-year-old Ybarra, who called it Nena. Ybarra had recently seen news reports of El Chupacabras and was convinced that it was responsible for the killing, although no one saw the creature in this case. A veterinarian who examined the goat believed that it was killed by a dog.


Soon afterwards, in the predawn hours of May 9, the Espinoza family of Tucson, Arizona reported encountering El Chupacabras at their home. Joe Espinoza claims to have found the creature outside his door, gesturing and mumbling and smelling terrible, "like a wet dog." It then entered the house through an open window and briefly sat atop Espinoza's seven-year-old son. The Chupa did not harm the boy, nor any animals, but the Espinozas claimed to find its footprints afterwards. Tuscon police, brought to the scene by a 911 call, believed the prints were actually those of one of the young Espinoza boys.


Other notable sightings in the United States include one reported by multiple eyewitnesses in Calaveras County, California, and at a recent birthday celebration of a Development Team member of a local charity in Houston, Texas. According to these reports, the creature was sighted for the first time in the early to mid 1990s, harming animals of different species. However, it is now thought that the people did this themselves.

A famous appearance in the city of Varginha, Brazil, (the "Varginha incident") is sometimes attributed to the chupacabra, although cryptozoologists more frequently associate the incident with extraterrestrials. In 1997, an explosion of chupacabra sightings in Brazil was reported in Brazilian newspapers. One report came from a police officer, who claimed to get a nauseous feeling when he saw a dog-like chupacabra in a tree.
