El Chupacabra

El Chupacabra, “the goat sucker”, is a blood sucking beast that originated in Puerto Rico and, since it’s first sighting, has been reported worldwide. Though, reports outside of the Americas are disregarded as uncorroborated or lacking evidence. Its name originated from the creature’s affinity to suck the blood dry from its victims- which are usually smaller livestock, such as chickens or goats. Descriptions of the creature range from a dog-like animal to a bipedal creature with burning red eyes and spines protruding from the base of the neck to its tail. Most reports have placed the size around that of a small bear. Along with that, almost all reports have kept that the Cryptid was hairless, sometimes being described as “elephant-like” in color and texture. Sightings in northern Mexico and the southern United States have been verified as canids afflicted by mange. According to biologists and government officials, the chupacabra is an urban legend; but to many believers, its existence is irrefutable.
