Honduras man's death blamed on 'Chupacabra'

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.

When I first heard of the "goatsucker' or chupacabra, it was i think on the old tv show Sightings, or Unsolved Mysteries. According to what  I heard, back in the 1990s,early 200s, this was some creature that was created in a US government lab in Puerto Rico. The thing got loose and was attacking animals, mainly goats not  humans.

This thing is like Bigfoot, Nessie, Slenderman, Mothman and others. It will continue to be reported as long as there is a belief....Urban Legends often don't die the belief just expands. I have been to Honduras and never seen one that don't mean they don't exist I just never saw one.

It doesnt even take "belief" to keep it going just someone who wants to tell the tale.....

Basically thats all Urban Legends are in the long run just tales that have expanded over the years, centuries etc...As the tale gets pass down to generation to generation it just gets more bizarre and twisted. But then agian for people that believe these tales it's often hard for them to separate fact from fiction.

The Jersey Devil started out as a parody and nut shot to the competition written by Ben Franklin.

Franklin wrote about the Jersey Devil? Or am I misinterpreting your post?

I'd go looking for some chaos cultists before looking for an actual reptilian chupacabra.  Possibly someone who was murdered, then drained to thrown supersticousness into the mix.
