Chupacabra by hawanja Chupacabra by hawanja

The infamous Chupacabra (Goat Sucker) grew to prominence during the late 80s after a series of cattle deaths in Puerto Rico. Unlike more traditional cattle mutilations encountered on the mainland for decades (and usually associated with UFO activity,) these animals were left largely intact, but drained of blood and with two vampire like puncture wounds. This eventually lead to near mass hysteria and army units attempting to hunt down the creature.

Sightings of the Chupacabra eventually spread to mainland Central and South America, and even to the southwestern United States. Descriptions vary, but over time a rough idea emerged of a somewhat bipedal, reptilian creature with large "Alien Grey" eyes and spines along it's back.

In 2006 the first video of a mangy, scaly, bluish dog-like creature emerged in Texas. Subsequently several animals have either been killed or found dead. Although these strange hairless animals could very well be the "real" Chupacabras, they seem a far cry from the hideous creatures that have been reported in the past.

Well, I wish the true Chupacabra were like this, instead of just being a diseased/mutated dog.

Yeah totally, although the blue hairless bloodsucking dog things are pretty bizzare in thier own right. I still want there to be something like this instead.

Yeah they seem to be different animals entirely, how could you mistake one of those small, mangy mutts for something like this?

Ya, I wrote my take in my Chupacabra entry file. I just think there are multiple cryptids being labeled "Chupacabra" despite bearing no relation. If anything, Chupacabra nowadays is an unintentional umbrella term within hispanic communities to descirbe an unknown creature.
