Mysterious Flying Chupacabra Kills 35 Sheep in Mexico
ABC News Mexico is reporting a farm animal attack last week in the town of Parácuaro believed to be by a Chupacabra. Only this time, the cryptid animal can fly.
According to the UFO Chronicles website, the Mexican state Michoacan's Diario ABC reported that 35 unfortunate sheep were slain in the wee hours of March 1 with their bodies displaying claw and tooth injuries, especially under the neck.
One man who was looking after the sheep in their pens said he saw the creature responsible for the attacks. He reportedly said it had fangs, claws and wings.
Agustín Carrillo Madrigal, the owner of the sheep, said that the pen is a quarter of a hectare in size, surrounded by a 2 meter tall cyclone fence. Six rams were kept outside the pen. Three of them died there and the others turned up dead on the outside. An inspection of the perimeter did not show any opening through which they could have exited.
The same enclosure also contained cows, horses and pigs, which suffered no injuries at all.
"Anything mysterious in Mexico is unfortunately labeled a 'chupacabras,' according to Loren Coleman, director of the International Cryptozoology Museum in Portland, Maine.
After looking at the video of the current chupacabras story, Coleman is dubious. "I see one sheep with its neck cut. But despite what is said, all of the sheep are not dead, and the bodies do not show a great deal of mutilation," Coleman wrote in an email to The Huffington Post.
The chupacabra is reportedly an animal that falls under the category of cryptids -- creatures that haven't been confirmed by science, like Bigfoot and the Loch Ness Monster. Some stories talk of chupacabras that attack livestock and drain the animals of blood.
