Honduras man's death blamed on 'Chupacabra'


Posted on Thursday, 28 February, 2019 | Comment icon 37 comments

Chupacabra literally translates to 'goat-sucker'. Image Credit: CC BY-SA 3.0 Monsterteeth
The unexplained death of a laboror in the village of El Naranjo has been attributed to the mythical goat-sucker.
The incident, which occurred on Tuesday morning in the municipality of Siguatepeque, saw a local man reportedly killed and drained of all his blood after being attacked by an unseen assailant.

According to his neighbors, he had been resting under a tree when the attack happened.

Beliefs and superstitions concerning the legendary Chupacabra - a vicious creature of varying descriptions said to drain the blood from its victims - are particularly widespread in the region.

As a result, many locals have come to believe that it was responsible for the man's untimely demise.

The Chupacabra is most commonly associated with attacks on livestock rather than attacks on people, however to date no conclusive evidence of the creature has ever been found and its existence, like that of Bigfoot and the Loch Ness Monster, remains a topic of ongoing debate.

As of writing, authorities have yet to put out any official explanation for the man's death.

Eating a person's blood. Wouldn't that make the monster a chupa-hombre? Or, is that a bad word?

I just found someone posting this on social media and asking why this bald dog they found has such odd eyes, feet and tail. This is exactly like the one i saw and called a chupacabra. Looked like a mangey coyote but was able to jump really high and climb over an embankment like a primate. Must be those toes.

The head says bald bull terrier... But the legs say... Kangaroo. The fingers probably just look pronounced from the lack of fur but has anyone else seen one?

Eww i dont think its a bear the face and body structure still seems more bull terrier to me plus bears are bulkier with different ears, eyes, no tails and shorter hind legs but the fingers do look alike. The one i saw was more coyote size plus ive never seen a bear jump but thanks for the comparison that is one sad looking bear i guess it gets a bit more difficult to determine species of animals when they are bald and malnourished. Something i noticed tho is that both the one i saw and the picture i posted dont otherwise seem mangey... Like the skin doesnt seem crusty or patchy, no remaining t... [More]

the site doesnt like graphic pictures like dead animals, i believe you can link to them with a warning, i posted one bear picture, but like i said they vary greatly and my going on memory of the pictures you posted, a very close canidate. bald raccoons fool a lot of people a sad one here in florida was found and named dobby and the wildlife people tried to save her, she saidly passed and wasnt bald from mange but rather genetic problems,   many animals can climb and jump, and i dont put much faith that such encounters arent embellished, i recall a documentary on sea monsters i have, the dad sa...
