MEXICO: Chupacabras Reported in Tampico (Tamaulipas, Mexico)

According to the news story published by the Hoy Tampico newspaper on June 14, 2007, residents of the El Pueblo district called the 066 emergency number for help, as they claimed having seen a very strange animal on the prowl. They associated it with the Chupacabras, describing it as a hairy animal that walks on two legs and makes strange noises.

Members of the metropolitan police in the port of Tampico were mobilized shortly after one in the morning on Thursday, June 14, after having received the news by phone.

Police forces reported to a hill located next to Avenida Cuahutémoc and Calle Guadalupe, where the "Chupacabras" had allegedly been seen, but did not find it.

It should be noted that this occurred 8 hours before the Mexican president engaged in a tour of southern Tamaulipas.
