Sheep deaths in Mexico blamed on chupacabra

Inexplicata-The Journal of Hispanic Ufology: Mexico: Chupacabras Strikes in Michoacán

Michoacán’s Diario ABC reported the strange deaths of 35 sheep in the town of Parácuaro. The incident occurred in the early morning hours of 1 March 2012. The boides [bodies] presented claw and tooth injuries; the majority of the injuries were under the neck, as if sliced by a razor. The person who looked after the sheep pens stated that he saw the entity that attacked the animals: it had fangs, claws and wings, and moved very quickly.

The chupacabra phenomena has been solved quite handily by Benjamin Radford in his comprehensive book Tracking the Chupacabra.

This was reported as being a chupacabra attack, according to researcher Scott Corrales of Inexplicata, but I see nothing to suggest that it isn’t rather ordinary (if unfortunate for the owner). I can’t translate Spanish but you might want to take a look at this news video linked below. It shows an array of dead animals, some are alive, but only one has a neck gash. I see no blood on the others at all. Also, they flip between the same camera views, none of which do much to establish what was said in the story.

When it comes to reports of entities with “fangs, claws and wings”… I’m not buying it. It’s one story and we know that people tell exaggerated stories or they may very well misperceive what they see. There has NEVER been any evidence for a creature that looked like the chupacabras as described here. Most livestock deaths are by predators. Incidentally, “wings” is not typically described in chupa sightings. Curious.
