      Monday 29, 2000 CALAMA (Chile) EFE newsagency

      "The gringoes had at least three genetic experiments run away from them
      and they've only been able to capture two of them," states Dagoberto
      Corante, a Chilean architect.

      Residents of the city of Calama and nearby communities are blaming NASA,
      the U.S. space agency for the apparitions and attacks of the mysterious
      Chupacabras, which has caused ruin among farm animals in the region and in
      other parts of Chile. Several dozen goats, pigs, chickens, rabbits and
      other animals turned up dead in northern Calama and its environs last
      April--their bodies completely exanguinated and undevoured by the
      mysterious predator.

      Among the Chupacabras' alleged characteristics are the ability of leaping
      over three meter tall walls and walking unmolested among dogs, while
      police and volunteer patrols who have set out after it only find some
      scattered footprints which are nearly impossible to identify in the areas
      desert terrain, some 1500 km from Santiago.

      An investigation ordered by the authorities concluded that the slayings
      were the product of attacks by packs of wild dogs, but no one beleived
      this version while claims of new Chupacabras attacks developed in
      different parts of central and southern Chile.

      According to Dagoberto Corante, one such creature was captured by elements
      of a local regiment in an operation that resulted in the death of a
      soldier, but the military have allegedly refused to discuss the matter.
      "It is said that the captured animal was kept all day at the regiment's
      [barracks] until NASA experts arrived to take it away." observed Corante,
      who is well known and respected in the area in which the Chupacabras has
      feasted on blood and spread fear among the population. "The day that the
      events transpired, the military even closed the airport for several hours
      to enable the landing of a helicopter conveying American scientists." he
      added, "although no one is quite sure why they had to close an airport in
      order for a helicopter to function--these are devices able to land
      anywhere, and the fact has given rise to much spectulation and rumor."
      Mario Ramos, a respected resident of San Pedro de Atacama, where he owns a
      butcher shop, largely agrees with the Corante's story and concerns, and
      while he doesn't care to discuss the subject, agreed that a soldier had
      indeed perished during the Chupacabras' capture.
