Earlier this month I reported on a weird encounter in Puerto Rico with a winged creature that had similarities to the infamous blood drinking chupacabras. The case isn't the only time that such entities have been reported. South America, a gold mine of chupacabra reports and high strangeness in general has several such cases that I've come across.
Over the years, Chile has been a hotbed of chupacabras activity. In April 2007, researcher Ivan Voreved was investigating a series of incidents involving farm animal deaths in Chile's 6th Region. On April 6,7 and 8th of that year, a series of attacks involving a strange creature took place in the small town of Pan de Azucar.
The witnesses, identified in reports by the initials "J.C" and "A.R.," shared their accounts with Voreved. On the morning of April 7th, at eight o'clock, A.R., a farmhand, discovered twenty-nine dead chickens in a coop on the property.
A.R. stated that the chickens looked liked they had been crushed by something and one of them displayed a hole in its back that reached down into its entrails. The hen looked completely bloodless and all of the carcasses displayed what A.R. described as a certain "orderliness" about them. (Such meticulous alignment of animal bodies as come up in other attacks blamed on chupacabras).
Neither the property owners or neighbors could find an explanation for the strange attack on the chickens.
J.C., the property owner, is a self professed skeptic when it comes to the chupacabras. However, he too was at a complete loss and could find no rational explanation for the events on his farm.
But this wasn't the only attack in the region and other witnesses claim that got a glimpse of the creature that was causing trouble.
Not far from J.C.'s farm, another bizarre incident took place. On a quiet dirt road, witnesses reported seeing what they first though was "something like a black trash bag," falling off the roof of a nearby house. Upon closer inspection of the dark object, it began to move and then jumped and took off into the air as a witness approached it. The strange, flying entity measured about a meter and a half and eyewitnesses said it had amazing speed once airborne.
The witnesses to the dark, flying creature were deeply shaken by their encounter. Local residents stated that the creature was most certainly a chupacabras and point to numerous similar cases and attacks in the area over the years.
These reports were originally compiled by researchers Raul Nunez and Ivan Voreved and translated by Scott Corrales.
