CHUPACABRAS: Alien Pets, Mutant Monsters, and Government Cover Ups

Description: Macintosh HD:Users:lorihouck:Desktop:images.jpeg


Mostly anyone with any interest in cryptozoology has heard of the creature called the “Chupacabras.” The chupacabras(spelled the same singular and plural) was first reported in Puerto Rico in 1995. Many farmers would go outside in the morning to find their animals dead and drained of blood. Animals killed included goats(hence the name of the killer, which translates to “goat sucker”), chickens, cats, ducks, sheep, dogs, and cows.

Later, people came forward to say that they had seen the chupacabras. Most witnesses described it as being about four feet tall, hairy, with a round head, a lipless mouth, fangs, and red eyes. It had short arms with three fingers with claws on the end and hind legs like those of a kangaroo. It had a line of spikes running all the way down its back.

Sightings of Chupacabras continued in Puerto Rico throughout 1995 and into 1996. Some reports also started coming from other places, including Spain, Mexico, Guatemala, and the United States.

The US sightings started in Florida on March 10, 1996. Teide Carballo reported seeing an “inhuman shape” walking across her property. Two weeks later, Olimpia Govea found 27 chickens and 2 goats dead and drained of blood. Barbara Martinez then lost 40 of her chickens and 2 ganders to the mysterious attacker."

This post is excerpted from my article about chupacabras in Issue 3 of Cryptid Seekers Magazine. For the whole thing you'll have to check out the magazine on MagCloud or the Cryptid Seekers facebook page.

I  also wrote about chupacabras in My book Cryptid U.S., which I will hopefully get finished & published soon.

Mountain Monsters - Coming Back in 2018?

Destination America's Mountain Monsters was a huge hit when it premiered in 2013. It's had five seasons through last year.

Season 3 started a "Bigfoot Edition" and season 4 introduced a "rogue team." Last season focused entirely on this "rogue team" and ended with really no conclusion.

Over the past 2 Saturdays, some old season 2 episodes of Mountain Monsters have been playing in the evenings. Could this be a sign that the show might be back for another season this year, or does it have no meaning at all?

If the show does come back, where can they go? Last season made absolutely no sense at all and the whole thing was pretty stupid. If it does come back, I think they should go back to just monster hunting like they did in the first two seasons. Once they went to just "Bigfoot Edition" things went downhill quick.

Some Thoughts on Alaska Monsters: Bigfoot Edition

So far, two episodes of Alaska Monsters: Bigfoot Edition have aired. Here are some of my thoughts on the show.

First off, let's start with the team, the Midnight Sons. There are a few new members on the team this season. The old leader, Little Bear, is gone, and now Crusty (the guy with the bear claw in his beard) is leader of the team. Other members are: Dudley (new guy), the team "forensic expert," Todd, the "trap engineer," Bulldog (new guy), the "survival expert," Rhett, the "greenhorn" (rookie), and of course Face, the "veteran tracker."

Compared to the AIMS Team of Mountain Monsters, Crusty is Trapper, Todd is Willy, Rhett is Buck, Bulldog would probably be Huckleberry, Dudley would probably be Jeff, and Face would be Wild Bill.

I haven't seen the first episode, "Bigfoot of the Arctic Circle: Siberian Giant," but I did watch episode two, "Bigfoot of Denali: Wind Walker" last Saturday. I actually though…

Review - Invasion on Chestnut Ridge

Small Town Monsters' 5th film, Invasion on Chestnut Ridge, comes out soon. STM director Seth Breedlove let me check out an advance copy of the film to put up a review on here. Though I've been quite busy for about the last month and a half, I finally got a chance to check out the film, and these are my thoughts on it.

Invasion is about the strange happenings along the Chestnut Ridge in Pennsylvania. Local residents who have had strange encounters are interviewed, as well as researchers Stan Gordon and Eric Altman.  Along the ridge, witnesses have reported ghost lights, UFOs, Bigfoot, werewolves, thunderbirds, and many, many other odd things.

Many well known sightings happened in the early 1970s, when reports of UFOs and Bigfoot were very frequent. The strangest thing of all this was that sometimes the two would be seen at the same time, or shortly after on another. Some witnesses even saw a white colored Bigfoot that was holding a ball of light.

On another occasion, two Bigfo…
