The elusive predatory creature known as Chupacabras (the goat sucker) is at large in Mexico. Reports are coming in from the states of Veracruz, Jalisco and Sinaloa. Animal deaths continue to multiply and a woman now claims to have been the victim of an attack.
Newscaster Jacobo Zabludowsky on the "Primer Impacto" broadcast announced on May 1 that Teodora Reyes, a resident of the village of Alfonso Genaro Calderon in Sinaloa had been attacked by the Chupacabras. The victim presented what appeared to be "burn marks" on her back where the creature had clawed her.
The town of Tlaliscoyan, Veracruz, some three hours away from the state capital, Jalapa, is at the heart of the region's goat-raising area and has already been subjected to the mysterious animal mutilations which have become the Chupacabras' trademark. The death toll stands at 60 slain sheep.
Dr. Rafael Lara Palmeros, director of research for Mexico's CEFP (Federal police), visited the University of Veracruz' Faculty of Veterinary Sciences to see what steps were being taken to investigate the spate of mutilations. He discovered that while there exists "an awareness of the situation" based on TV and radio reports, the medical establishment is not planning on taking steps to conduct field research of its own.
CEFP has expressed its intention of visiting the area to interview the population of Tlaliscoyan, Alverado and surrounding communities, which have been described as being "up in arms" about the mysterious wave of animal deaths.
CNI News will continue to report new developments in the spreading Chupacabras phenomenon.
