El Chupacabra


Let’s have some info on another “cryptid” monster. For those of you who don’t know a “cryptid” is a creature that is reported to exist but the scientific proof of the creature’s existence is lacking. Chupacabra literally means goat sucker in Spanish. The monster got this name because it allegedly kills lifestock of farmers, especially goats, and drains them of blood.

The sightings are usually taking place in rural areas. The first eyewitness report originates from a sighting in Puerto Rico back in 1995, but today the sightings of this alleged creature reach as far north as Maine and as far south as Chile!

The descriptions of the creature vary to some degree. Some people claim it to be the size of a bear, others the size of a dog. Most eyewitnesses however report a row of spines running down the back of the creature. Some speculate that this could be some sort of new or undiscovered canine, an experiment gone horribly wrong or even an alien. Most experts however see the mystery of the Chupacabras as a contemporary legend. What do you guys think???

  13. I think it's legit. My boyfriend and I live in Arizona, and he and I have both seen some shit that is very similar to the representations of it.
    Also, his parents have some livestock, and they have had to chase something away on multiple occasions. It's not easily scared, but it's pretty FUCKING SCARY.

  15. I actually believe it's legit.. I mean, the fact that there's such an animal, not the crazy theories about its origin.
    In my province (state for you Americans) there were a lot of cases of mutilated cattle, and nobody really gave a good explanation.
