The first meeting
For the first time a Mexican farmer told about the monster, who found dead goats in his own barn and an irregular animal with a large head and powerful hind legs. On the bodies of the affected animals, the host discovered multiple injuries, from which he suggested that the beast possesses large canines and claws.
After this incident, the Chupacabra was quickly forgotten, however, 20 years later, stories about an animal unknown to science began to emerge periodically. According to some descriptions, it is completely bald, about a meter tall, or even two.On the large head there are large round eyes, which in the dark shine almost like lanterns.
Other eyewitnesses say about the woolly coating of the beast, resembling the color of a sheepdog, sometimes white, brown and black are mentioned. Often they talk about huge clawed lower limbs and underdeveloped upper ones. There are references to thorns on the back, legs and head of the beast.
Most stories speak of fangs. And some people talk about the vampire inclinations of individuals. As if the animal does not touch the meat of the victims, but only completely exsanguinates their bodies with the help of a special device of the front teeth. The absence of blood was also mentioned by the first witness of the appearance of the chupacabra.
In general, the animal looks like a cross between a rat and a coyote with a pig nickname instead of a nose on the face. Many journalists suggest that this may be just a mutated wolf, however, sucking the blood of these animals, of course, is not inherent.
