Dog Horribly Mutilated by Unknown Predator

Calama businessman Luis Farías Muñoz cannot find a rational
explanation for his guard dog's mysterious death.

A mutilated dog was found in strange and intriguing
circumnstances in an industrial neighborhood located to the east
of Calama's Balmaceda Avenue, causing great concern to its
owner, who is still struggling to find a logical answer to the

Luis Farías Muñoz, owner of the Mabet Company, propietario de la
empresa Mabet, a machine shop and ironworking establishment, was
stunned when he discovered one of his guard dogs yesterday
morning on the street outside the property's walls. The dog
showed signs of having experienced a terrible attack on its left
side, where almost its entire skin was missing from its back to
its belly.

"This is a source of great curiosity for me, since I have seven
dogs (now six) which I leave within the walls every night.
Yesterday (Wednesday) I myself brought her in along with the
other animals and today (yesterday), I had to face this scene
when I arrived - the dog was out on the street, at the other
end, and in this condition. I cannot understand what might have
happened here."

Farias is quite right in his remarks - the case is rather
strange, since the dog's body shows signs of pressure on its
neck, is not swollen despite having been out in the sun all day
yesterday, and its interior shows signs of scraping. However,
the most outstanding thing in the complainant's mind is that he
did not find a single drop of blood visible in the animal's
wounds, nor any blood spilled on the terrain on which it lay

"I haven't moved a thing - everything is the same way since I
arrived. I also find it strange that there are no drag marks on
the ground, and that the skin that's missing off my dog isn't
anywhere to be found. I've even made a videotape of this."
explained the worker.

He says that the neighborhood is a peaceful one, and has never
attracted the attention of vandals or gangs, mainly due to the
enormous amount of dogs that can be found there and are charged
with defeding the premises of a variety of businesses.

"My friends told me to call La Estrella [de Calama, newspaper]
because it's all so confusing; the attack resembles those of the
Chupacabras. Because, who else would want to do such a thing,
and what happened to my dog's skin and blood, and what was the
dog doing outside of my compound, when I myself brought her
