Legend tells of a strange creature living in the wilds that feasts on blood. This creature, called the Chupacabra for its tendency to attack and drain livestock, is greatly feared by the farmers and herders in the remote parts of the country but most in the cities dismiss it as foolish superstition.

In the first reported attack, eight sheep were discovered dead, each with three puncture wounds in the chest area and completely drained of blood. Since then the have been blamed for the deaths of hundreds of other animals, all of them having been drained of blood through a series of small circular incisions.

Based on eye witness accounts they are a reptile-like creature, said to have leathery or scaly greenish-gray skin and sharp spines or quills running down its back. It is said to be approximately 3 to 4 feet high, and stands and hops in a fashion similar to that of a kangaroo.

Another less common description of the chupacabra is of a strange breed of wild dog. This form is mostly hairless and has a pronounced spinal ridge, unusually pronounced eye sockets, fangs, and claws.
