Farmers in Mexico found 35 of their sheep slaughtered with significant claw and tooth marks around their necks. They knew exactly what had caused the carnage – the legendary chupacabra.
One man tending to the sheep overnight in the small Mexican town of Paracuaro said that he saw animals with sharp fangs and wings kill the livestock.
Dubbed the ‘Bigfoot of Latin culture,’ the chupacabra is a legendary four-legged creature that many think is responsible for attacking and killing livestock.
However, there were also horses and pigs in the Paracuaro enclosure, which were found uninjured in the morning, Mexico’s Biario ABC reported.
The sheep’s owner, Agustin Carrillo Madrigal, said the pen was secure.
One sheep can be seen with blood around its neck, but there appears to be little damage on the remaining animals.
Director of the International Cryptozoology Museum on Portland, Maine told the Huffington Post that it hardly looks like a vicious animal attack.
‘The bodies do not show a great deal of mutilation,’ he said.
‘Anything mysterious in Mexico is unfortunately labelled as ‘chupacabras.’
