The Chupacabra is said to be a dog like creature, but walks on 2 feet. Some say it has blue eyes, and some say it’s front legs are shorter than the back legs. When it stands, it is supposedly 3 ft tall or more. It is hairless, and some say its paws are different from those of a canine or a coyote. Rumor has it that it has sharp teeth, fangs, claws, and even sharp tongues! Many say it’s winged with giant red hypnotic eyes. Still nobody knows the Chupacabra’s real appearance.
The Chupacabra is said to leave 2 holes in their prey with no blood left whatsoever. There are many rumors about what the Chupacabra is. It is well known for sucking every bit of blood from it’s prey, which is how it kills them. The Chupacabra is famous for killing goats, which is why it is nicknamed the “goatsucker” in Mexico. “Chupa” meant sucker, and “cabra” meant goat. However, along with sucking goats, the Chupacabra is said to kill chickens, pigs, cows, dogs, and is rumored to kill.
Scientist have done many DNA tests, and some scientist say the Chupacabra is nothing but a coyote inflicted with a rare and severe case of mange. (Mange is a disease caused by parasitic mites. This disease may result in extreme itching, hair loss, or formation of scabs. It’s like a skin disease that is normally infected on animals)However, they have no proof whatsoever why a coyote would stand on 2 legs sucking all blood out of prey. Many still simply say that the Chupacabra was left behind from aliens to test an experiment on mankind. Since the Chupacabra has big eyes, and the many UFO sightings in the exact same place where Chupacabra sightings were, it would be obvious to think the Chupacabra was an alien. According to some, the Chupacabra was a failed science experiment that escaped from the laboratory. Maybe scientists are hiding it, so they won’t take the blame for this mysterious beast. Some think that this beast is a vampire due to it’s habit of sucking blood.
Most sighting have been reported seen in America, Mexico, and now is making appearances in Asia. Somewhere between the 1900s and the 1950s, in Puerto Rico, the first Chupacabra was sighted reported by Angela Laje. Angela reported seeing a creature that looked like a monkey. According to some, this monkey like creature sucked out over 40 animals dead. People worried thinking it was a vampire attack. Parakeets, cows, sheep, goats, and etc. were all found dead. Farmers worried very much about their livestock, and the monster that was causing it. Could it have possibly been the Chupacabra? Could this have been a vampire? Was this the first Chupacabra or really just a monkey? Many believed that the Chupacabra is nothing, but a childish weak explanation for all the dead animals. Nobody knows for sure what happened, but what they did know was a new legend was born.
In 2004, another attack was reported in a Texas ranch. The farmer of the ranch caught a hairless wild beast in his trap when it started to kill his livestock. The ranch owner noticed that many of his animals were found dead. He wanted to what kind of anonymous beast would do such a thing, so he set up a trap. Surely, it worked, but nobody knew what had been caught. Scientist once again did a DNA test proving that it was only a coyote infected with a severe case of mange. Many did not believe that this creature was simply a wolf. Could this have been the Chupacabra? Was the mystery solved? If so, why was it hairless? Nobody knows the answers for sure.
Is the Chupacabra still alive? Scientist still have no idea what the Chupacabra is, and if it is even real or not. It may have been killed a long time ago, or it could still roam this Earth. Many people have reported trapping and killing the Chupacabra, so is the Chupacabra dead yet? In 2011, a man named Truitt Barnard, from Simpson County, Mississippi, claimed he had killed the Chupacabra. “It wasn’t a dog or a coyote,” Barnard observed. After 50 years of hunting, Barnard has never seen anything like this beast. “It had a long face, no hair, red rough hide, the ears were rounded, had double canines, they were 3/4 better inch long,” Barnard says. Jim Walker, from the Mississippi Department of Wildlife believes that what Barnard has caught is some sort of dog or coyote, but definitely not the Chupacabra. Many others have claimed they have killed the Chupacabra, even young teenagers have,but did they really?
Overall, not much is known about the Chupacabra. No one has ever held enough facts proving that they’ve seen the Chupacabra, and,definitely nobody has proved it exist, but, still, some believers hold on to their beliefs. Maybe the Chupacabra may be proven fraud, or might be proven real. The facts we have now might not be able to finish the puzzle, but in the future, we might find our missing puzzle pieces. Nobody can still tell if this mythical creature even roams this Earth, so, possibly, we might discover a new world one day with new creatures!
