Chupacabra Fears in Guatemala After Mysterious Animal Deaths

The villagers of Tecpan, Guatemala are alarmed by a series of mysterious killings of their farm animals that some believe could be the work of the legendary chupacabra.

The bizarre case has been going on for several months, with different animals found dead with strange marks and drained of blood, reports

In March, an unknown predator killed 75 chickens, ducks, turkeys and pigs in this way. A few weeks later, another attack left more farm animals dead in a similar manner.

The villagers suspect that the culprit could be the chupacabra, a mythical creature that is said to suck the blood of livestock.

According to folklore, the chupacabra can have different appearances, ranging from a reptilian alien-like being (in Puerto Rico and Latin America) to a dog-like creature (in Southwestern United States).

“Some neighbors say that it could be the chupacabra,” one villager said, “while others say that they have heard something like a meow at night and have seen a wolf-like shape.”

The villagers are worried that the predator might target children next.

“We don’t know what kind of animal it is,” another villager said, “we are asking the authorities to pay attention to this situation and help us identify the animal that is behind all this.”
