Chupacabras Reappears in Tulancingo, Mexico

TULANCINGO, HIDALGO – In the community of Lagunilla, belonging to Tulancingo, an unusual case took place yesterday that has made neighbors feel concerned and afraid.

Some said: “The Chupacabras has returned.”

Seven sheep were found this morning with brutal injuries. One of them displayed a hole in its side, which caused its death. The rest showed signs of injury, but lived to see another day.

Several years ago, an allegedly strange animal given the name “Chupacabras” entered into several pens and killed dozens of sheep and goats. Last Wednesday morning, Jose Isabel Islas headed for a sheep pen on his property and received a terrible shock upon witnessing the scene. Concerned, he contacted public safety officials in Tulancingo.

The director of this agency, Luis Alvarado Mayorga, stated that the dead sheep had a hole measuring six centimeters in diameter on its side. In this case, the circle was surprisingly well outlined. Jose Isabel added that he had heard his dogs barking that morning, but did not consider the fact to be unusual. About a month ago, he said, he also found a dead sheep – eyeless and without a drop of blood. The owner of the flock of sheep said that he was baffled and could not find an answer to this riddle.

Family Sheep Died Under Similar Circumstances

At the site of the animal deaths, Isabel Islas added that 30 sheep belonging to relatives had also been found dead and presenting severe injuries.

At different addresses and times, geese or ducks were the first to succumb, followed by sheep.

Eladio Islas Duarte lost nine animals; Eufrasia, with the same surnames, lost seven, and Porfirio Marquez lost five.

No other neighbor reported a similar situation with his or her flock.

“I’m certain that dog bites are not to blame,” said the complainant. He added that his sheep pen is protected with a fence measuring 1 meter 50 centimeters and a large board. A dog cannot jump such a height.

Veterinarian Asked to Perform Animal Tests

Jose Isabel asked a veterinarian to come and inspect both the dead sheep and the survivors. He fears that the animals may be infected with some disease following the attack, considering that the attack came from another animal. Furthermore [he would like] the nature of the species that caused such injuries to be determined.

Alvarado Mayorga spoke to the veterinarian of the Municipal Abattoir, who promised to get in touch with the owner of the sheep.

In the meantime, Jose Isabel was doing his best to heal the injuries inflicted upon his animals.
