This guy is saying that the stories of El Chupacabra started in 1995?
There might be alot that is unexplained, but such a hypothesis trades ignorance for confusion.
More importantly, what happened to Natasha Henstridge?
I grew up in south Texas and heard my first Chupacabra stories in the 1970s at Girl Scout camp.
So it wasn’t from a 1995 movie.
Whether Bigfoot, the Loch Ness Monster, Champ or a host of other “monsters” reliable witnesses are seeing something. I do agree with the article that in this day when digital cameras are readily available and people are actively looking for these creatures it is strange that there are not more videos, photos or other tangible evidence.
I just wish the History Channel aired shows about history rather than mythical monsters and aliens. I like the swamp people show, but there are better channels to air it on.
I don’t know about Chupacabra but I’m willing to bet all the Bigfoot sightings can be attributed to Michelle O on her many vacations.
There are no more Chupacabra sightings once a Free Range Chicken is introduced into the area.
B.S. I known of a couple of fellow showmen that displayed “Chupacabras” in Puerto Rico back in the 80’s. The fear of the animal was widespread back then. I have had patrons of my museum tell me of their encounters with chupacabras, which were quite horrific. Legend or real? Well, I have one and when on display, invokes a certain horror and fear in people.
