Urban Legends About Animals and Cryptids
Many falsely believe the chupacabras, also known as goat-suckers, are creatures that came into existence only in modern times. An alien species mysteriously transplanted from another planet and now hiding in plain sight.
There has been documentation of the presence of the chupacabras for centuries, with original sightings credited to the Mayan civilization in pre-Columbian times.
Their existence became recognized in modern pop-culture after sightings in the Americas during the mid-1990s. Claims from South Texas hit the media airwaves after a local farmer found his goat with mysterious wounds consistent to those of the chupacabras, clean puncture wounds on the neck region.
