In Orocovis, farmers found eight sheep completely drained of blood. Each bore puncture wounds. In Guanica, 44-year-old Osvaldo Claudio Rosado claimed to have been grabbed from behind by a gorilla. Puerto Rico has no gorillas. After fighting off the creature, Rosado needed treatment for scratches and cuts around his torso. Chickens and cows died nearby soon thereafter of single wounds to the neck, the blood simply gone. In Canovanas, livestock deaths reached into the hundreds. Mayor Jose "Chemo" Soto raised a posse of volunteers and personally hunted every week for the creature for nearly a year, armed with rifles and a caged goat. He failed to catch it. He was, however, re-elected. The animal soon made the leap to the mainland, with 69 chickens, goats and ducks found dead on a Florida lawn, again with their blood drained. Michigan and Oregon suffered subsequent attacks. Then, a rash of bloodsuckings in Mexico created a minor media sensation by late 1996
Stories suggesting Chupacabra activity can be found in newspapers dating back to the 1950s. In fact, the first reported case in North America was in Arizona sometime around 1956. Although incidents have been reported in Arizona, Oregon, Michigan, Illinois, New Jersey, New Mexico, Florida, and parts of Chile, Brazil and Mexico, the majority of activity has occurred in Puerto Rico. A rash of attacks plagued various regions of Puerto Rico in 1995. In Canovanas alone, several hundred livestock fatalities were attributed to the Chupacabra.
but if one of the theories was right (sry, but I couldn't be bothered to look and see who posted it) about it not being intelligent, then you might not have much to worry about after all. Like whoever said it said, most of the animals and creatures on earth are scared to death of us so maybe the Chup's are too...
In late May / early June, rumors surfaced that three of the creatures had actually been captured. Reported chiefly by Marcial Campos Maza of the Chile's EFE news service and by Joseph Trainor of UFO Roundup in the U.S. among others, the stories claimed that three of the creatures had been caught in the desert near a mine just north of the town of Calama. In the struggle to capture the Chupacabras, they said, one Chilean soldier had been killed. The Chilean military allegedly would not discuss the matter.
More bizarrely, after the little monsters had been held in an army barracks for several hours, a team of NASA representatives arrived by helicopter from the U.S. (closing the local airport, according to one story) and took them away. How it was assumed that these people were from NASA is unclear, as is where the notion came from that NASA - the U.S. space agency - would have jurisdiction over such a matter, if it were a fact.
.im really insterested in this so if u no which part of the state that would really help me.

I have been combing the web looking for specific locations or maps of the attacks but so far I have turned up nothing. It would be very helpful if anyone could give detailed maps and locations of the attacks suspected of being chupacabra related.
