Chupacabras, or 'Goatsuckers', have risen to crypto-fame over the last few years. In March, 1995, reports were coming in from Puerto Rico of carcasses from small farm animals sucked dry of blood. In September, 1995, the first sighting came in of an animal with the features of a kangaroo, a gargoyle, and a 'gray' alien. It was hairy, 4 feet tall and had a large, round head, no lips, fangs, and huge, red, lidless eyes. It was said to have thin, webbed arms and muscular legs with spikes running down its back.
By 1996, the stories became legend as the Chupacabra became known around the world. Stories began flooding in of sightings as far north as the U.S. Other sightings can be traced back to the 1970's, as well as earlier accounts of these creatures from the Taino Indians with stories of the Maboya. As the initial hype of the Chupacabra faded, so did the sightings.
Over the last few years there have been reports of these animals being shot. Conspiracy theories abound as reports about authorities switching skeletons with those of dogs begin to take place. Again it's either the government cover-ups going on, or it's the farmer who wants to keep his fame. These things never cease and probably never will as long as there's a media to fuel the public's imagination and the occasional man's greed.
