Chupacabra Alert: 300 Goats Mysteriously Slaughtered in Mexico
AOL News ^ | September 2, 2010 | Lee Speigel

(Sept. 2) -- Shepherds in Mexico are up in arms -- or heads, as the case may be -- over a rash of beheadings inflicted on their goats, and many people are blaming the legendary predator known as the chupacabra.

Over the past two months, more than 300 goats owned by shepherds in Mexico's Puebla state have been decapitated by someone, or something, that hasn't yet been tracked down.

According to various reports, Felix Martinez, president of Colonia San Martin, recently stated that nearly 40 goats were killed near his municipality. Strangely, there was reportedly very little evidence of blood in the area where the goat bodies were found -- throwing suspicion on an unknown animal or chupacabra.

The chupacabra falls into the cryptozoological category of cryptids, a term used to describe animals that haven't yet been confirmed by science, like the Loch Ness Monster and Bigfoot.

Chupacabra sightings often emanate from the Southwest U.S., Puerto Rico, Latin America and Mexico, and the animal is thought to attack livestock, leaving behind puncture wounds after it drains their blood.

AOL News reported in July that a bizarre-looking animal, allegedly a goat-blood-sucking chupacabra, was shot and killed by Texas Animal Control officer Frank Hackett.

"All I know is, it wasn't normal. It was ugly, real ugly. I'm not going to tell no lie on that one," Hackett told NBC DFW.

Medical researchers have speculated that the purported chupacabras of Texas and Mexico may actually be coyote hybrids, something DNA tests could determine.

Meanwhile, in Mexico, groups of peasants have formed watch groups to monitor any possible chupacabra activity in their communities.

Well, they have told us that there are tons of Islamofascists coming over the Mexican border.

It’s obvious.

The chupacabras are taking orders from the cartels.

Now we are gonna have to look out for illegal goats crossing the border for the safety of the US.

Thanks Mexico. /s

If this happened in Afghanistan I would just write it off as a severe case of date-rape at a jihadi orgy.

Sounds more like some sort of ritual sacrifices.

Blaming the whole thing on some scary animal will keep those pesky peasants away!

Why have there been no reports of DNA tests yet?

Maybe the goats belong to some Hispanic muzzis, were out fooling around and wound up getting hit in honor killings.

I’d love to work for the Mexican tourist board these days. “Hola! Come visit our beautiful beaches. Pay no attention to the lawless drug wars and blood-sucking mutant coyotes.”

I think so, too. And it has been around in Mexico for many years...of course, Islam is related.

These goats were drug dealers who were taking a cut of the action and the cartels found out.

400 beheaded goats? I have no idea, except maybe a jihadist practicing their swing.

Maybe the drug cartel was pissed because the goats weren’t paying for their grass.

Probably just the cartels training new recruits in the art of beheading before they move on to real targets.
