The culprit of these killings are those crypto-animals commonly known as chupacabras.
Chupacabras were seen in many places inPuerto Rico,Mexicoand other places inLatin Americaand said to be behind the killings (by blood sucking) of goats and cattles.
Recently, in a remote area inRoxasCity, a poultry raiser in brgy. Dumolog named Jojo Canobia was shocked and scared when he saw a dog-like animal attacked his chickens and found them headless.
Another local resident, provincial engineer Joel Jumbas reported an attacked of chupacabra killing his two goats. The chupacabra sucked the blood of his goats.
Chupacabra (also chupacabras /tʃupa’kabɾas/, from Spanish chupar: to suck, cabra: goat; goat sucker) is a cryptid said to inhabit parts of the Americas.
It is associated with the ancient myth of the chimera or griffin, and more recently with sightings of an allegedly unknown animal in Puerto Rico (where these sightings were first reported), Mexico, and the United States, especially in the latter’s Latin American communities.
The name comes from the animal’s reported habit of attacking and drinking the blood of livestock, especially goats. Physical descriptions of the creature vary.
Eyewitness sightings have been claimed as early as 1990 in Puerto Rico, and have since been reported as far north as Maine, and as far south as Chile.
It is supposedly a heavy creature, the size of a small bear, with a row of spines reaching from the neck to the base of the tail.
Most biologists and wildlife management officials view the chupacabra as an urban legend.
