Subject: Let's Hear It From Chup. June 17, 1999.
I was contacted by a producer friend of mine lately and he said that
he is planning to make a fictional movie about Chupacabra and wanted
some factual information about the subject before starting the movie.
I have reported on this phenomena somewhat in the past so I asked a
person who helps me in my research projects to look up some information
on the subject and send it to me. Here is what was sent my way.
I found a website with lots of text about this thing. It is being
pasted directly from the following website:
I will continue to find other websites and send them as I find them,
The Chupacabra, or goatsucker, is a phenomenon that started in mid 1995
in the mountains of Puerto Rico. Something strange was killing all the
livestock in and around Canovanas, draining all their blood. When the
corpses were found, the blood had been drained through one or two small
"The wounds are usually about the diameter of a straw and three to
four inches in length", claimed a local veterinarian who examined some
of the corpses of the victims. The deaths were mysterious indeed, but
it wasn't until September 1995 that the panic really set in. A housewife
witnessed a Chupacabra attack and described the beast as a fanged,
kangaroo creature with evil red eyes. Another Canovanas witness, Misael
Negron, described the creature as being "about three or four feet tall
with skin like that of a dinosaur. It had bright red eyes the size of
hens eggs, long fangs and spikes down its head and back." It attacked
the family goat, as it had done with so many others. Hence, the name
By November news was travelling beyond just Puerto Rico as reports
of this goatsucker became more widespread. Luis Guadalupe described the
creature as "ugly as a demon, and it flew through the air." He also
stated that it had a "pointy, long tongue like a snake." What is this
creature? Some say wolves, some vampires, some the devil, some think
it's extraterrestrial in origin.
Puerto Rico has been long thought to be a UFO hotspot. Rumors of
secret US military bases and mysterious lights in the sky. What is
going on in Puerto Rico? Is it just a coincidence that the Arecibo
Observatory is located on the North part of the Island? Only time will
tell, but until then, the rumors and the fears run rampant.
It is claimed that the Chupacabra is accompanied by an unusually
strong scent of sulphur, not unlike the demonic creatures of folklore.
Witness Madelyne Tolentino claimed, "it jumped like a kangaroo and
smelled like sulfur." It has also been known, in some cases, to have
supernatural strength. In one case, it allegedly tore a 16ft by 14ft
iron gate off it's hinges to get to the animals. There has been rumor
that the smell the creature emits is actually it's way of immobilizing
the animals while it drains them of their blood. It is not only
animals the creature is attacking, but also some humans. Angel Pulido,
from Jalisco, reported getting bit by something that was "a giant bat
which looked like a witch". Also in Mexico, Teodora Reyes showed marks
which were supposedly caused by the claws of the chupacabra.
It's vampiric like qualities, it's penchant for bloodsucking, have put
quite a scare into the residents of Puerto Rico and Mexico. It is quite
possible that the chupacabra hides somewhere in the daytime, most likely
in caves, or underground. Unfortunately, especially in Puerto Rico,
there are miles of cave systems which seem to go on forever, making it
almost impossible to hunt for the Chupacabra. But there is one man in
Puerto Rico who is willing to search for the creature. He is Jose Soto,
the mayor of Canovanas. He is reported to have led police and
towsnpeople alike, through the bushes in search of the monster. It is
rumored that Soto was armed with a 12-inch crucifix to ward off the
demon. While this sounds rather comical, it only shows the amount of
fear instilled in the people of Puerto Rico.
MEXICO AND THE UNITED STATES
There have been recent reports of the Chupacabra in California, Texas,
Miami, Baja California, and the reports throughout Mexico are too
numerous to mention. One of the first attacks in the U.S. was in Tuscon,
Arizona where Billy Nubian's two goats were attacked by a creature in
the middle of the night. He described it as a large "ratlike" creature,
which when spotted, let out an "unhuman shriek" and ran away. In Baja
California, a dog was found with two puncture marks in the neck. So far,
this is the only report from Baja California. In Miami, there was
apparently a bloodbath in terror when 69 farm animals were killed in
one night. the animals belonged to two families living in the
Sweetwater district, and they have even gone on television claiming it
was a chupacabra.
Even in Panama, the killings have occurred. Daisy Arauz claimed that
the Chupacabra killed the family dog. Throughout the countryside are
reports of dead animals with the puncture marks in their necks.
Elizabeth Saavedra claimed she was attacked by a chupacabra in the
middle of the night.
Apparently there has been quite a buzz recently in Brazil about the
Chupacabra. My correspondent in Brazil informed me of a program that
aired on Brazilian televison on June 29th, 1997. There have been
several spottings of the Chupacabras in Brazil, as well as an apparent
killing of one. Two men were fishing at night when they spotted
something coming out of the lake.
They were unsure what it was, so they shot it, and the next morning
they discovered that it was a chupacabra. They cut off the creatures
head and now are still in possession of it. On the television program,
they showed the head and the interviewers asked the man to cut off
part of the bone for analysis, but the man refused. Another part of
the program had an American UFOlogist, who is living in Brazil,
claiming that he had captured a live one.
He refused to show it to local authorities, stating that he would
only allow American investigators inside his house where the creature
is kept. I'm sure he's hoping to get money for his "find". If anyone is
interested in contacting the televison program for more info, the email
