The Truth about Mexico’s mythical Chupacabra creature The Chupacabra or “Goat Sucker” has been the topic of legends among families of South America for many years. An elusive creature that has managed to slip through all trace of detection has made itself known in recent days. Farmers have described the Chupacabra as an evil creature with red glowing eyes, a beast that walks on its hind legs, resembles a dog like alien creature that only comes out at night; and sucks the blood from helpless livestock.
Crystal Grant, a very successful veterinarian located in Skiatook Oklahoma, has studied this creature for most of her professional career. Mrs. Grant states “ This is the top dog of the K-9 species” she goes on to explain if the Chupacabra is actually a real creature, it would have supernatural powers that would be out of this world. (Grant) The Chupacabra has been a well talked about mysterious creature for years; some do not believe what our new recent evidence has provided. Sightings of the Chupacabra have been reported all over Mexico and Southern Texas.
A Chupacabra has been the main “go-to” explanation for every unexplained livestock slaughter in the southern region. There have been many unexplained instances where cattle, sheep or goats have been found littered along their grazing pasture, their bodies fully in tacked, with only two small puncture marks on the neck to indicate a body fully drained of its blood. Janice Brown of Texas recalls a time from her early childhood while working on her fathers’ Texas ranch. “When I walked past the barn to feed the sheep, there simply were no sheep left to feed.
I was so scared. Their little bodies were scattered all over the field. As I turned to run home to daddy there it was; its eyes were glowing red like a demon, standing upright on its back two legs, it growled at me for a second and then like a ghost, it was gone. ” (Brown). This siting from Mrs. Brown is just one of so many similar reported experiences. Ranchers have made similar reports from an area somewhere around the center of Texas, all the way down through Central and South America. The Chupacabra has been hunted for centuries.
Men have spent countless hours and days on this hunt for a demon. Usually with their son or daughter in tow, a father from this region would take a young son into the woods to hunt this creature. It seems the purpose of this hunt was more about a boy overcoming his fears to become a man. Until recent years, the Chupacabra was never reported to have been killed. In 2010, a man by the name of John Bojangle was able to change this losing streak. During a personal interview, Mr. Bojangle explained how he was able to kill an actual live Chupacabra in action.
Mr. Bojangle has recently had the beast mounted and placed on Display at a local museum. Mr. Bojangle explains how he used the tried and tested Chupacabra hunting methods from a man by the name of Steve Mendal. Mr. Mendal has a website that has very detailed information on hunting Chupacabra’s. On Mr. Mendal’s website, he states that “anyone can kill a Chupacabra if they have patients. ”(Mendal). Whether a Chupacabra is actually an easy creature to hunt and kill is not the real concern for most people.
Most are after the truth of whether or not the Chupacabra is actually a real creature. People of South America believe this creature is real by majority. The Chupacabra is a main part of their heritage and culture. Local scientists have recently debunked the mystery of the Chupacabra. Recently, it has been determined that our mythical Chupacabra creature is actually just an animal with no hair. In fact, recent years have turned up many different types of dead hairless animals that seem to be undetectable as a well know species.
Researchers first thought this condition to be a terrible case of mange. Recent studies have actually uncovered many different types of animals to have this hairless condition to include: Raccoons, dogs, coyotes, and wolves. Researchers now believe this condition to be a strange genetic mutation that causes the animal to be born without hair. A recent show on televisions “Dirty Jobs” by Mike Rowe, shows an actual Chupacabra found in Texas. This animal seems to be related to a coyote. No evidence has ever been given to support an alien type creature with red glowing eyes.
The Chupacabra will always be a local legend among the people of South America. People will always hold onto their love of a good folklore. Most people whom believe in the Chupacabra also believe in Big-Foot, and aliens from other planets. Children love to be scared by the evil legends, and will continue to tell stories of the mythical Chupacabra for years to come. Even with all the new found evidence which shows the Chupacabra to be just a myth, some will continue not to believe what science has proven. Works Cited Grant, Crystal.
