Sigh........

Ok.. I am going to be as politically correct as I can in this post so as not to offend anyone.. That is not my intention...(disclaimer)

I am in South Florida and we have a huge Latin population (Cubans, South AMericans, etc)
The Chupacabra is a mythical creature that does not exist, however some people of Latin (Mainly Cuban) descent will argue with you that there is.. At one time here in S. Florida there were goats, chickens, etc that were being killed on farms by an "unexplained animal".. They claimed the damage that was done to these animals was too terrible to be done by local wildlife or pets and the teeth marks and bite measurements were huge... blah blah blah..it turned out to be a big mutt doing the damage, but the Cubans were convinced it was "Chupacabra"

This apparently is a folk lore in Cuba that has been around for years and years..it is suppose to be some "beast animal" half devil, half wolf ,half dog, whatever...
so everytime something "unexplained" happens here..the Cubans run around like idiots afraid that the Chupacabra is coming and its the end of the world..

It is Bull Shat!!! Right up there with the Easter Bunny and BigFoot.......
Here are some pics of the Chupa for your enjoyment...

Michele hit it right on the dot. It was Latin American folk lore at that. Each country has some interpretation of this "monster."

you forgot...

Actually it's LA Chupacabra. It means 'goat sucker' in spanish, (chupa= suck, cabra=goat) named because it was said to drain the blood from goats and then other farm animals.

My very favorite bearded dragon is named Chupacabra, Chupa or Chups for short!

Sorry had to butt in!

Good info said so far. Why are you interested in this creature? I am just curious. I have a friend that has written an entire comic book series about La Chupacabra. I have seen pictures that at times makes me wonder the validity of stories, but than again stories are great fun to listen too.
