a sort of an update about the creature i saw

my cousin richard the person i was with when we first encountered the creature, according to him he has located where the creature hides during the day at an abandoned mine structure about a fourth of a mile from where we saw it, he said that he was down there with his friends just hanging out and they heard the same noise that we heard when it was chasing us, so he told his friends about the creature and our encounter. his friends didnt believe him right away and then they went to go investagate it and they said they heard the noise again but louder and then they looked in the mine and saw it crawling around, he said that his friends turned around without saying any thing and started to run and when they thought they were safe they turned to richard and was like, "you were not lieing" and others said "what the **** was that thing"

i want to go check it out but it is tresspassing i think, although there is no sign saying that it is, i will take a camera and try to get proof of this thing but i also dont want to get eaten by it either, i am definetly going with a group of people not to many though as not to scare it into hideing then if we get proof i will post it on here fo you guys to see

or i can be eaten and never heard from again lol :)

This story was all over TV in the late 90s. It was crazy.

I think you should go back during the day, see if you can photograph any unusuall prints, mutulated animal bodies and similar stuff before contemplating going back in the dark, if it isnt anything unusual it still could be a dangerous wild animal of some kind.

I never saw the creature myself, but I saw several animals near trails with their blood drained (this was in Sao Paulo state). Every news show would display a map of dead animals and alleged sightings of the chupacabras. The unidentified head on the Show do Gugu still freaks me out (will try to find a copy on the web).

While I was in Brazil, it was easy to get caught up in the mass hysteria. Getting attacked by the chupacabras was a very real possibility in my mind. Now that I'm safe in the USA, that fear seems rather silly.

I didn't lose my mind - I have it backed up on a disk ... somewhere

The following comes from http://www.geocities.../cattle030.html, which copied the text from a (now) non-existent web page. This page was last modified in October of 1999.

Apparently there has been quite a buzz recently in Brazil about the Chupacabra. My correspondent in Brazil informed me of a program that aired on Brazilian televison on June 29th, 1997. There have been several spottings of the Chupacabras in Brazil, as well as an apparent killing of one. Two men were fishing at night when they spotted something coming out of the lake. They were unsure what it was, so they shot it, and the next morning they discovered that it was a chupacabra. They cut off the creatures head and now are still in possession of it.

On the television program, they showed the head and the interviewers asked the man to cut off part of the bone for analysis, but the man refused. Another part of the program had an American UFOlogist, who is living in Brazil, claiming that he had captured a live one. He refused to show it to local authorities, stating that he would only allow American investigaors inside his house where the creature is kept. I'm sure he's hoping to get money for his "find".


The television program mentioned is Domingo Legal do Gugu - the Sunday edition of Show do Gugu

Chupacabra's are a truly odd development that owe in equal parts Latino Male pride and some odd cross between domestic canines and wild animals, probably coyote.

Monsterquest ans Fate magazine have both done admirable coverage of this animal.

Ranchers in Texas are shooting animals that fit the description of a Chupacabra. There are photos that show an animal somewhat like a large Mexican hairless crossed with a mangy coyote complete with protruding canines. So there's the animal.

How to account for the galmorous stories? Who want's to admit being scared by an animal little bigger than a Miniature poodle? "But man, this poodle was viscious bro with fangs dude!"

Pretty soon there are spines and wings and it blows flame. Google the pictures and judge for yourself. I think that it's funny as "heck"
Take this kiss upon the brow!
And, in parting from you now,
This much let me avow---
You are not wrong, who deem
That my days have been a dream:
Yet if hope has flown away In a night,
Or in a day, In a vision, or in none,
Is it therefore the less gone?
All that we see or seem
Is but a dream within a dream.

While I do believe there are creatures walking this planet that have not been officially discovered and classified, all I know of Chupacabra is he has quite the cult following in Puerto Rico.

I travel quite a bit and 'he's' all over the place in San Juan..in the form of tees, coffee mugs and stuffed animals, etc.

I bought a stuffed one and he's currently residing in my closet, because even though he's soft and fuzzy he's still a tad on the ugly side.

I'm pretty much open to any possibility...except bringing Chupa out of the closet and putting him (her?) on display.

This article just happened to be the first thing I saw when I logged on after work. Nice way to set the mood right after work, eh? :hug:

So do I. The only images of the chupacabra they have is a video link to a CNN Story, and even there, it's really only onscreen for what, 30-40 seconds total. To me, it just looked like a hairless coyote. But then, that's just my opinion.
