A Mysterious Creature Found in Bolivia After Unusual Livestock Death
- New York Post
VIVA – A mysterious creature has been found in Bolivia amid reports of dead livestock with their blood sucked dry, sparking fears that a mythical demon is rampaging through the region. Video of the alleged mythological menace is currently blowing up online.
In the scary drone footage, snapped near the city of Oru, a shadowy, seemingly bipedal figure can be strolling through an open field in a scene straight out of the M. Night Shyamalan sci-fi thriller "Signs".
The mysterious sighting coincides with the deaths of several cows, llamas, and alpacas in the area.
Their peculiar neck wounds led locals to believe that they’d been killed by a chupacabra, a vampiric demon from Latin American lore that imbibes the blood of livestock, hence its colloquial name “the goatsucker.”
The legend comes from reports of farm animals and pets being drained of their blood.
According to the canons of cryptozoology, this mythical plasma thief has red eyes and stands upright like a large reptilian kangaroo.
Originally reported in Puerto Rico in 1995 after a spate of livestock deaths, chupacabra sightings have been reported everywhere from Chile to golf courses in South Carolina, although none of these sightings have been proven.
This latest alleged attack prompted local ranchers to build fences around their livestock to protect them from the "blood-sucking demons".
It is unclear whether authorities are investigating claims that chupacabras drink the blood of animals or other wildlife. This follows an alleged similar incident last month, where a Chupacabra was also blamed for the death of a white ram near Cancun, Mexico.
The poor animal was found lying on a rock on the ground with no eyes and wounds on its mouth and neck, which were signs of a Chupacabra attack, according to locals. Inevitably, this discovery sent imaginations running wild on social media.
"It reminds me of documentaries about explorers who disappear and when found they lose their eyes and tongue," said one resident.
However, others rejected the "Chupacabra" theory and concluded that the wounds on the ram were caused by wild animals, "Jaguarundis animals usually eat the soft parts, eyes, and tongue," said some. "It could have been that animal or another animal that did something similar."
In a similar sighting allegedly closer to home, a strange unidentified creature was photographed roaming a Texas zoo, sparking speculation that Chupa had traveled north of the border.
