Chupacabras Run Wild Throughout Chile

"A strange animal left a trail of blood and death at the Los Lagos commune of the Quinchilca sector" in Chile. Fear gripped a humble peasant woman after she learned of the strange death of 50 hens and a pig at the claws of a mysterious beast which few hesitate to identify as the Chupacabra.
The hideous scene of bloodletting was discovered early in the morning of Monday, August 18, 2003 "by Edith Mora, owner of the Los Colihues farm, located 3 miles from Los Lagos," just east of Valdivia in southern Chile.
The strong winds and rain felt early Monday morning kept folks from discovering the sinister fact, which took the lives of 50 hens and 9 geese through strange perforations on their necks, as well as the death of a large pig, who presented extensive and deep injuries on both sides and its head. The violence of the attack was made manifest by the numerous scratches on the stall doors, one of which was completely destroyed, or all of the numerous prints, recalling those of a puma and which were evident all over the henhouse.
Oddly enough, the three watchdogs on the premises never noticed the strange animal's presence, and it is assumed that they did not hesitate to hide in order to avoid the same fate as the other victims.
"All of my birds are dead and scattered, and the henhouse door was shredded to ribbons. I was sad to see my little animals dead” said the sorrowful woman, who is even contemplating the sale of the property and moving far away:
“Some say it was a lion, although others have not dismissed the fact that it could have been the Chupacabra. Whatever it is, my birds are dead, damn you, Chupacabra, you killed all of my hens!”, were the resigned and angry words of Ana Luisa Morales Inostroza when she discovered at 7 a.m. yesterday (Monday, August 18, 2003) the macabre spectacle, as she went, as is her custom, to feed her farm animals. Seven chickens in one of her two henhouses were dead, scattered all over the dirt floor. Another small bird was agonizing. The dead birds has lost most of their plumage and presented 2-centimeter (0.8-inch) puncture marks on their necks. The dry flesh of the animals' interiors could be seen through the puncture, as though a strange object had been introduced into the dead poultry's bodies to draw their blood.
The attack took place at Sra. Morales's home on the Calle Los Castanos (street) in Las Cruces, and the owner "reported the event to the Carabineros barracks at Las Cruces, noting that the Chupacabra was responsible.
Two dogs guard the house of Ana Luisa Morales, and on an adjacent property, two mastiffs reinforce the sector's safety. She remarked:
"'These birds have no blood. You can see how pale they are. There's no doubt that it was the Chupacabra, whom they say was in Santiago but has appeared in Las Cruces. I believe that it was the Chupacabra that came in at four in the morning, because at that time everyone is asleep, even the animals.”


Residents of the rural communities of El Barro, Tolapa and Las Marias," in the department (state) of Leon in northern Nicaragua "are frightened of being stalked by the alleged Chupacabra, to whom they ascribe the deaths of 55 goats and sheep, causing financial losses to local farmers. explained Jorge Luis Talavera, a rancher from Tolapa, explained:
“Goats and sheep are harmless animals that are turning up dead in the pens and groves of private properties. Their bodies do not exhibit any signs of struggle, except for two deep holes in the neck area and in the legs, where the so-called Chupacabra bites to stun its victim and later sucks their blood, as a rule, the Chupacabra attacks female animals and helpless newborns under cover of darkness” He added that he has lost 22 animals to the unnatural creature in less than eight days. Faced with the predations of the Chupacabra, local peasants have taken steps to adequately fence their animal pens.
Sra. Felix Albertina Brenes, a peasant from El Barro, stated that two months ago, at midnight, the Chupacabra visited her property for the first time:
“It killed five of the seven sheep I had in the yard. We only heard the racket and the running of the frightened sheep-- they were trying to defend themselves, banging into the wire fence and the house walls. Although they could hear the commotion, they were too scared to go out at that time of night, and, at sunrise, found five of the seven sheep dead and completely bloodless, with holes in their throats, mourned the humble peasant woman."
There are more persons affected by the Chupacabra in Malpaisillo, such as Sra. Pilar Ocan, who lost six Peliguey sheep. Jeronimo Blano lost eight, and Maria Carcamo lost 12.



Chupacabra Kills 50 Hens Near Rauco In Chile 30th August 2003

Without any apparent explanation, the owner of 50 hens was startled to find his animals dead inside and outside a henhouse in the Quete Quete sector of Curico, on the road to Rauco in Chile. Scattered over a broad space, the hens were joined by a turkey and a rooster that shared a small coop that was also forced.
The owner cannot explain how the creature--which was initially said to be the legendary Chupacabra--could have entered the pen and then the henhouse, leaving in its wake 50 hens in very poor conditions, some of them even torn to shreds, although without the characteristic (puncture) wound found on animals attacked by the Chupacabras The owner could not explain how the events occurred.
Only when they arose in the morning did they realize that 50 hens were dead and that a scant few remained alive, without them or their watchdogs ever becoming aware of a disturbance.
Sergio Gonzalez Nunez, owner of the slain birds. remarked:
"'I have no idea what happened here. When I woke up in the morning, I found them dead, nothing more. About 50 hens died; and there are roosters and turkeys. We found nothing. There were 60 hens here and about 10 are left. This is the first time it's happened. I heard nothing, the dogs didn't bark, and my wife didn't hear any noise. The hens were scattered all over, and I gathered them here...there were a few around here, and the turkey was over there.”

Chupacabras Description Analyses Performed Source: Miami UFO Centre

Description Of Chupacabras As A Result Of Analyses Performed

The following are the characteristics observed as a result of digital analysis, for which state of the art equipment and sophisticated computer software programs were employed, as well as the experience of belonging to a family of photographers.

This analysis lasted approximately 60 days and is still ongoing.

The duration in which the animal can be seen is of approximately 4 seconds. The distance from the camera's position to the subject under analysis is approximately 15 to 20 meters.
Its appearance, at a glance, is that of a black panther combining canine and ape characteristics. But detail is only possible through the result of an objective digital analysis.

Its size - horizontally - is approximately 1.8 meters long by 1.4 meters tall.
It has two ears similar to those of a donkey but much thinner, with an approximate length of 30 centimeters. When these are in repose, they remain straight and forward (rigid). Upon observing or feeling itself under observation, it moves them backward at a 90 degree angle, approximately. At no time does it relax or put its ears back, as is the case with most animals; they always move in the same direction, from front to back. On its abdominal region it present four cannulae or segmented tubes which appear to emerge from its dorsal area and are attached to its body. These cannulae, ended in semi-rounded points, hang beneath its abdomen forming a ring. Something similar can be found on its neck but these are short, thick and semi-conical. Between its nasal region and muzzle other dangling cannulae can be seen, these being shorter and lighter in color, and which it appears to be able to contract and extend at will. Speculatively, it might be able to employ them as siphons to drain its victims' blood.
Between these cannulae, which emerge under its nose, a strange pair of vampire-like fangs can be seen to emerge from the upper mandible, linking in a rounded manner, opening slightly at their ends and curving backward, like powerful claw.
It has a powerful jaw and a broad muzzle with long upper fangs.
Its nose presents large nasal openings, a combination of pig, mandrill and wolf.
Seen sideways, its face resembles that of a large feline, but seen face-on, [it resembles] a fusion between wolf, feline, pig and mandrill. It further presents a slight protuberance in the upper rear part of its skull.
It features a pair of curvilinear upper wings which fold and emerge from behind its neck, like the wings on a hawk. These wings present three folds from beginning to end, with the last one fold being the one of largest size.It is further endowed with two medium-sized lateral fins that emerge from behind each one of the front legs, which are linked to a "semi-rectangular" prominence or bulk located in the underarm joint of said extremity.
The wings resemble those of a bat, where bones adhered to the skin can be identified, showing several final folds and fan-shaped joints on the base.
It features membranes or pseudo-wings which link the front arms with the medial abdominal region of its body and has characteristics which are very similar to the aforementioned wings, only thinner. In a resting position, these [pseudo-wings] assume the shape of an inverted "V". Its skin is slightly lighter in color and crossed by thin bones.
It has a short tail, measuring some 20 cm. in length with a mean thickness of 5 cm. resembling a thick sausage, which it shakes quickly. Its upper wings, when folded over its back, become fused with its fur. Slight protuberances (on its back) can be seen which would be the edges of the pointed folds of the folded wings.
Toward the end of the body, the endings or tips of the wings mounted (sic) or in repose can be clearly seen, above and between the tail.
It's hind legs are noticeably longer than the front ones. It walks with its hind legs flexed--as though crouching--opening them sideways; it walks normally with its front legs. Its gait has a certain resemblance with that of a large lizard. Both arms and legs on its upper section appear thick and strong. Four long frontal toes joined by a membrane can be seen in its hind legs, plus a dewclaw with medium sized nails.
The color of the creature's skin on its head and the ends of its feet and hands are dark in color, rather black, while the rest of the body has a dark brown shade that is only slightly lighter in the abdominal area. Reddish shades are evident on its nose and upper wings (back). Certain lighter shades can also be seen toward the tips of the upper folded wings (over the tail). It is not possible to establish sexual organs. It walks quickly, talking great strides, but the movement of its wings and face (attention and reaction) is far swifter. Movements are very similar to those of a lizard.
Its eyes are elongated and swept backward, menacing, curved and following the shape of its skull.
The analyses are still ongoing. New details on this creature may still be found.

New Animal Deaths In Coquimbo.

A new attack by the mythic predator took place yesterday in Pan de Azucar, this time on the property of Carlos Errazuriz of Hacienda Venus. Increasing the fear that is already felt by local residents since the first deaths occurred on October 15, the fact is that the landowner was faced with the death of 15 of his canaries through exsanguination. The birds were not eaten.
Before the startled eyes of the dwellers, who did not hear any noises during the night, the unknown entity opened the mesh screen of the bird cage to subsequently get in and slay all of these canaries, which were found dead the following morning and strewn all over the yard, showing the same strange marks which supposedly appear on the "Chupacabras"'s victims.
Errazuriz dismissed the possibility that a dog or other animal-- such as a fox--could be involved, since considerable strength would be required to open the gate, and furthermore none of the birds was devoured or even bitten. "It's as though only their blood had been sucked," he said, looking at one of the prints left by the mysterious assailant. Due to their large size and shape, they do not appear to belong to any known animal.
The first time that a Chupacabras attack became known in this region was in May 2004, when 40 mutilated chickens were found in Salamanca. Although all suspicions at the time were directed at the strange creature's actions, the fact is that the official version finally determined that it was merely the work of a "wild animal": an explanation that did not convince many.

Dogs Sucked Dry from Within in Lota

Did the Chupacabras move to Lota? Researchers of the unexplained prefer to speak of an unknown biological entity which attacks the animals in a mining community. Death has now visited the dogs in the Enacar compound.
Something unknown is prowling Lota and is slaying animals without pity: ducks, hens and now dogs are the victims of a macabre "entity" which has local researchers of the unexplained beside themselves, collecting background information in order to reach the truth as closely as possible.
The person who found the bodies of four dogs--four pups and a grown bitch-completely exsanguinated from within, without any traces of liquids or blood inside them, described the animals condition:
"Given the rigidity of their muscles, I believe they were subjected to such a state of agitation that it could have only been caused by blinding fear, an unprecedented attack or act of aggression." Leonardo Torres is the president of the MUFON chapter in Lota, an independent international agency that looks into strange phenomena and is compiling background information on the deaths, which have been attributed to a "being" whose names he did not wish to speculate.
The deaths of these quadrupeds occured at a kennel located in the vicinity of the Enacar compound and which is under the care of a person who worked for said corporation, training their watchdogs. This man, who did not give his name, left some pups locked in a kennel on August 23, together with a female pit bull to look after them.
The next day, the man was gripped by fear when he found them lifeless. He even found one of the puppies sliced in half and another a several meters' distance. "They were completely dry and dehydrated. The bitch was stiff; I had to break her bones to bury her. The strangest thing is that her jaws were clenched and the pups were all together, as though piled up... they also had two puncture marks, one behind the ear and another in the backs of their necks," said the man, who has 40 years' worth of experience in dealing with dogs and had never seen anything like this.
The kennel's gate had been torn and everything inside was in disarray, even a iron stove weighing several kilos was a meter and a half away from its original position. The compound is very large and that it possesses ideal tunnels in which anything can hide”.
He added:
“There are statements from people who claim having seen--at different times on August 22 - a "biological entity" in the Lota Alto sector, among them a child who even made a drawing of it.”

This case coincides with others which were made known a few days ago, such as the one in Idahue, in which six ducks were found with punctures in their necks.
