Chicken deaths blamed on 'El Chupacabras'

HORIZON CITY, Texas, Jan. 13 (UPI) -- Two Texas men said they have a prime suspect in the slayings of 30 chickens on their property, El Chupacabras.

Cesar Garcia of Horizon City, Texas, said he found 20 chickens dead and drained of their blood Saturday morning and his brother-in-law, Juan Miranda, found 10 chickens killed the same way in a different coop Sunday morning, the El Paso (Texas) Times reported Wednesday.

"I saw the chickens were dead, but there was no blood around the sheet metal," Garcia said. "All of them were just dead in one big pile. But, really, I don't know what it was because there was no blood."

Garcia and Miranda said they researched the twin puncture wounds on each of the chickens and tracks found near the coop and linked them to the mythical creature.

However, Tony Zavaleta, a professor of anthropology at the University of Texas-Brownsville, said El Chupacabras, which translates to "the goat sucker," is strictly legend.

"The Chupacabra is a mythical creature," Zavaleta said. "I reserve the right to say that until someone produces one."

Democrats must be getting ready to cast some kind of vote and needed to preform some death rituals for success.

Are they taxing chickens now? ;-)

And these ranchers performed an autopsy on each chicken to verify the “blood was drained”? and are they knowledgeable in professional CSI procedures to locate bleed-out areas and found no trace of blood on the ground or grass?

If the answer is yes, and yes - them maybe they could convince me that it wasn't El Coyotes.

Typical of lame reporters and editors: It is either "el chupacabra" or "los chupacabras", but it cannot be "el (singular) chupacabras (plural)". That is like saying "chicken deaths blamed on a wolves".

That was my first thought...lazy gringo reporter. The Chupacabra always made camping in the Hill Country a lot more fun, although the real monster to fear was the raccoon.

camping in the Hill Country

Bare necessities include a good scatter-gun, a good handgun, and a good rifle just in case. My recommendations: Mossberg pump action 12-ga with short barrel and pistol grip; S&W .357 revolver; Winchester Model 1894 .30-30 and you should be prepared for any contingency.

So it should either be "Pippis Longstockings" or "Pippi Longstocking"?

Nonsense! El Chupacabra targets goats. By definition.

The perpetrator in this case must be El Chupapollo.

Ah, El Chupacabra. The 90’s version of El Vampiro de Moca (70’s?). A direct relative of El Cuco.

No we haven’t.

Screw the El Chupracabra. We need to be saved from the El Obamacabra.

Far more lethal.
