Alien or Legend?

Updated on August 10, 2011



Since 1995 a legend has grown based on reports of a beast known as a Cupacabra. It started in Puerto Rico, spread to mainland America and then finally in 2010, there were reports of sightings in Siberia.

Reports say that this creature sucks the blood from its prey.

It is supposedly the size of a small Bear with spines down its back.

Several times Cupacabra have been reported as having been shot but in all these instances the corpses have turned out to be either Dogs or Coyotes with skin disorders. Well, at least that is what we have been told.

Any Guesses?

Road Kill

On 5 August, 2011 an animal was found dead on a Minnesota road. Apart from one tuft of hair, this animal was devoid of fur, it only had a bare white skin.

Neither the discoverers of this animal, locals or specialists have been able to identify what animal this is. It has now been taken for thorough investigation of species.

It is said to have the head of a dog, the front claws like a Badgers only longer and a long tail. It is also said to have long toe nails, which is uncommon for both these animals.

Although this beast does not have spines down its back, some have speculated that this must be the elusive Chupacabra.


At first sight it would appear to be a member of the canine family. However, no canine is known to have five front toes, like this does.

Local hunters and trappers say that they have never seen the likes of this before.

Could it really be the mythical Cupacabra? If not, then what?

There have been three other theories put forward.

Firstly, that it somehow managed to come to our World from either another dimension or planet, via some yet unknown passage.

Secondly, that it was “dropped off” by a UFO.

Thirdly, scientists have been carrying out secret genetic experiments and one of their “experiments” escaped.

When this specimen has been thoroughly investigated, will we be informed of the findings?

Even if we are told, can we believe what they tell us?

There is of course one other possibility.

That is: the authorities already do know what it is but for some reason, do not want us to know of its existence.

Unless this is some kind of experiment, then where there is one, there must be more. So what I would like to know is: how many more are there and are they dangerous?

I am guessing that I will never know for sure.

      These kinds of sightings always spark my interest. I also think what if? I like to keep an open mind because you never know what the world truly has to offer. Nature is great isn't it?
