Another Mysterious Attack: Chupacabras Returns

Only two weeks after being blamed for the deaths of several
domestic animals in Ponce, the enigmatic Chupacabras reappeared
this time in the Caguitas Centro sector of Aguas Buenas.

"When I got home I looked at the cage and didn't see the
rabbits. I went downstairs quickly and saw the scene: I had a
nervous attack and had to take some pills," said Amarillis
Flores, who returned home yesterday morning after having spent
the weekend at her daughter's house.

Amarillis, who was in charge of the residence, was alarmed when
she saw that her grandchildren's pets - two white rabbits, a
black duck, a rooster and a hen - lay petrified at the bottom of
their cages, located at the rear of the backyard. Neighbor
Salvador Rosario said that on Sunday night he noticed that the
dogs were very restless, but dismissed the possibility that the
canines could have been the cause of the animal deaths, as the
cage would require a strength greater than a dog's to tear
through the screen.

"Two dogs have been missing since Saturday--a dachsund named
Oreja and a poodle named Negri," added Rosario, a retired
schoolteacher. The scene was macabre: a duck, still agonizing,
displayed two holes on its back through which its blood was
apparently extracted. The equidistant holes could also be seen
on the rooster's back and on that of the hen. The rabbits' front
paws had been severed; two geese and another duck survived the
carnage. "They couldn't have been dogs, because they would have
dragged the animals away. It was a two-legged chupacabras," said
Flores, meaning that it was either the mythical creature that no
one has been able to identify, or it was a human being.

Inside the cage, where the smell of decomposition prevailed,
there was no trace of blood and it's gate had not been forced.
The wire fencing hadn been pierced or ripped by something with
considerable strength, according to the affected parties.

When intervierwed by PRIMERA HORA, veterinarian and zoologist
Pedor N=FAnez noted that the incidents ascribed to the
"Chupacabras" - a character believed by many to have wings,
flies swiftly and has nocturnal habits - could be the work of
stray dogs, apes or exotic animals not native to Puerto Rico.
The specialist in exotic wildlife stated that during the drought
season, some types of rats and mice tend to suck the blood of
others to survive.
