$2000 reward offered for catching vampires

Politicians in India have offered a $2000 reward to anyone who manages to catch a vampire.

While residents of Dharampuri in Tamil Nadu have been staying indoors after dark for fear of attack by blood-sucking assailants, local politicians believe that the stories of vampires in the area have been concocted by criminal gangs as a way to keep people off the streets at night so that they can carry out illegal deliveries of bootleg alcohol. "It is a big hoax," said politician O. Jayaraman. "Since people are not willing to believe us, we have challenged them with this reward."

"Although vampires are usually associated with Western mythology, many believe the stories have their roots in Asia and were carried along the silk route to Europe."

what amazes me is that no one caught the farmers complaining about the bloodless cows...did anyone besides me happen to look up recent ufo activity by chance in less than thirty seconds i found six sightings in that area over the past few weeks... i mean, do people in india know about this connection or what? i am also interested in the 'strange beings' some say they saw roaming around.... This is more than likely a ring of bandits whom are draining Cows of their blood for sales in Asia. Asian countries use pure cows blood as a delicacy for food dishes and other things. It's quite valuable. So... [More]

This is more than likely a ring of bandits whom are draining Cows of their blood for sales in Asia. Asian countries use pure cows blood as a delicacy for food dishes and other things. It's quite valuable. Source for Cows Blood This is more likely than Aliens running all the way to earth just to drain our livestock of their blood. And if you're leaning towards it being a Government agency doing it, well, I can tell you it's cheaper and more efficient for Governments to simply raise and farm their own Cows in HUGE ranches to do their testing than spend millions on black ops missions just to harv...

amazing..so apparently these bandits have the most incredible technology out there(wish they would share). incredible...'blood bandits' all over the place just so i have this straight, are you saying that this phenomena does not occur? i would assume then that you have done extensive research into this matter, yes? if not, i would be happy to send you some links to, for example, the APFU(animal pathology forensic unit)in the uk and compare their findings with your 'theories'. and to answer the question of would the visitors come all this way to drain blood out of an animal, well, i don't see h...

And $2000 dollars is really not enough to get anyone except the already criminally intended to go looking. If I thought vampires were real and they roamed by town at night, it would take a lot more then $2000 dollars to get me to go out and look around. Maybe they should offer $100,000 for a real vampire and $2000 each for the thugs/drug dealers/burglers that are pushing the rumor/story. The wage in India for the average person is about $315 per year. $2000 would be almost 7 years wages. I'm betting there will be a lot of people looking to find one of them thar vampires.

Didn't think of it that way, I was looking at it as a plea for foreigners to aid. Which in that case, $2,000 is nill. I have a feeling there's going to be a surge in night time murders due to this. Villagers will be killing people randomly for wandering the streets at night lol

Hope this doesn't cause problems of people killing their hated neighbor, stating they were a vampire and expecting money for doing it. I was thinking the same thing. It's the witch hunts all over again...

Only $2,000? I'd need a little more than that. That's just a weird story all together. For one thing, if you're going to be doing illegal stuff at night... you want to blend in, not stand out as the only guy on the street. Silly politicians.

Lol goodluck to those who are willing to hunt
