Diário do Povo, on 20 June 1997, said:
The Chupa-Cabras supposedly was seen twice in the Southern region of Campinas. What was to be a simple (moment of ) recreation was transformed by moments of panic and terror. The protagonist, once again, was the strange animal.
Student Fernanda Aparecida Antonio, 13 years old, did not deny she was frightened upon seeing the Chupa-Cabras in a patch of weeds behind the Maria Pavenatti Fávero school, in the neighborhood Jardim Aeronave I.
Fernanda affirms that her first thought was to ask help from the school's director. "Unfortunately even now nobody believed us. They think it's the fruit of our imagination," admits the girl. She was accompanied by her friends Marcos (14), Jocimar (11), Tatiane (9), and Alex (12).
Housewife Izaltina Maria de Araujo, 48, tells: "It was an other-worldly thing. A strange creature was in my yard, in the Vila Palmeiras I nieghborhood. Head of a horse, long fingernails (claws), enormous forhead, and hair (fur) all over the body, a mixture of man and animal." According to Izaltina the beast speaks. With a child-like voice, the creature asked her dog Duque (Duke) to calm down.
All this happened about 8 last night. Izaltina was watching tv waiting for her daughter Elisangela to return from school when she noticed her dog barking very angrily. Worried, she went out to check out what was happening and saw the creature. When she saw it, the supposed creature took back its arms and, looking at the dog, repeated a sentence thrice: "Be quiet." She affirms that the voice of the beast was "like that of a child."
After the sentence, the creature turned its back towards Izaltina and headed to the thick mata (weeds) next to the house.
Please note that this is only a rough translation as the article uses some slang which, though easy to understand, is hard to express in English. The article was accompanied by a drawing by Fernanda of the chupacabras.
I didn't lose my mind - I have it backed up on a disk ... somewhere
