Chupacabra

The chupacabra (“goat    sucker”) is an animal said to be unknown to science and systemically killing animals    in places like Puerto Rico, Miami, Nicaragua, Chile, and Mexico. The creature’s name originated with the discovery    of some dead goats in Puerto Rico with puncture wounds in their necks and their blood    allegedly drained. According to UFO Magazine (March/April 1996) there have been    more than 2,000 reported cases of animal mutilations in Puerto Rico     attributed to the chupacabra.

According to Ben Radford, the chupacabra is modeled after the creature in the 1995 movie Species. The first eyewitness account of the creature was given by Madelyne Tolentino in a Puerto Rican newspaper. Radford interviewed Tolentino and asked her if her account could have been influenced by the  alien/human hybrid creature in Species. She had seen the movie in the weeks prior to making her description. The two images below can be used for comparison.

Other reports in Puerto Rico and Latin America  can be dismissed, says Radford, because they’re all based on Tolentino’s Hollywood-inspired monster.*

Puerto Rican authorities maintained that the deaths were due to attacks from groups of      stray dogs or other exotic animals, such as the panther, illegally introduced in the      island’s territory. The director of Puerto Rico’s Department of Agriculture Veterinary      Services Division, Hector Garcia,  stated that there is nothing unusual or      extraordinary about the cases they’ve observed. One veterinarian said “it could be a      human being who belongs to a religious sect, even another animal. It could also be someone      who wants to make fun out of the Puerto Rican people.”

Like other creatures in the cryptozoologist’s barnyard, the chupacabra has been    variously described. Some witnesses have seen a small half-alien, half-dinosaur tailless vampire    with quills running down its back; others have seen a panther like creature with a long    snake-like tongue; still others have seen a hopping animal that leaves a trail of sulfuric stench. Some think it may be a type of dinosaur heretofore unknown. Some are    convinced that the wounds on animals whose deaths have been attributed to the chupacabra    indicate an alien presence. However, they do not attribute the “mutilations” to    the aliens themselves, but to one of their pets or experiments gone awry. Such creatures    are known as Anomalous Biological Entities [ABEs] in UFO circles.

Those who think the chupacabra is an ABE also believe that there is a massive    government and mass media conspiracy to keep the truth hidden from the people, probably to    prevent panic. This view is maintained despite the fact that the President of the Puerto    Rico House of Representatives Agricultural Commission, Mr. Juan E. [Kike] Lopez,     introduced a resolution asking for an official investigation to clarify the     situation.    Inside Edition sent a crew to Puerto Rico to investigate the ABE story. They    allegedly ridiculed the Mayor of Canavanas, a witness to the chupacabra, and     basically made fun of the whole idea.

Jorge Martin, a Puerto    Rican journalist who describes himself as a “leading UFO researcher,” reports that it has been brought to his attention that the U.S. and    Puerto Rican governments have captured two of the creatures. Perhaps there will soon be a    film on the ABE autopsy to rival the discredited alien autopsy    film. Martin cautions us not to exclude other reasonable possibilities.

The ABEs can also be the product of highly sophisticated genetic manipulations      by human agencies. A Chinese-Russian scientist by the name of Dr. Tsian Kanchen, has      produced genetic manipulations which have created new species of electronically-crossed      plant and animal organisms. Kanchen developed an electronic system whereby he can pick up      the bioenergetic field of the DNA of living organisms and transfer it electronically to      other living organisms. By these means he has created incredible new breeds of      ducks/chickens, with physical characteristics of both species; goats/rabbits, and new      breeds of plants such as corn/wheat, peanut/sunflower seeds and cucumber/watermelons.      These are produced by linking the genetic data of different living organisms contained in      their bioenergetic fields by means of ultra-high frequencies biological linking. If the      Russians have created this technology, then without doubt the US and other powers have      too. Therefore, it is quite possible that the “Chupacabras” or ABEs could have      been developed by humans. [Martin]

Martin goes on to report that a chupacabra has been killed and blood tests have been    done on the creature.

The genetic analysis so far has revealed that the blood is in no way compatible      with human blood nor with any animal species known to science. The traces ratio of      magnesium, phosphorous, calcium and potassium are incompatible with those of normal human      blood, they are much too high. The albumen/glouline [RG ratio] was also incompatible. The      ratios found do not allow the results of the analysis to be compatible with those of any      known animal species.

At present, we can’t place the sample with any earthly organism. Therefore it      could well be the product of a highly sophisticated genetic manipulation, an organism      alien to our own environment or perhaps extraterrestrial. [Martin]

I suppose Martin’s work is what passes for responsible     journalism on some planets in the universe. On the other hand, the sightings may not be all that accurate, the    “mutilations” not all that strange, and the evidence for these bodies, autopsies    and blood tests remains little more than speculation for the most part.     However, one alleged chupacabra was killed in Nicaragua and was examined by     scientists at the Autonomous National University of Nicaragua. When the     scientists revealed that the carcass was that of a common dog, they were met     with     skepticism and derision. Nobody wants to read a story with the headline:    Chupacabra turns out to be Chihuahua.

Most scientists who have looked into alleged chupacabra sightings or     findings agree that the creatures are quite terrestrial canines, often     coyotes, suffering from mange.     An increase in cases of mange is attributed     to global warming.
