actually, there haven't been nearly as many documented cases of actual ensanguination as the mythology would have one believe. It is very difficult
to prove a body is drained of blood without close examination, and very few qualified witnesses have actually documented anything that proves
blood-sucking. The legend is Spanish in origin, and appears closely associated with the myth of birds [generally species of nightjar and whiporwill]
sucking milk or blood from goats. What actually exists is a story about a monstor, and the fact that livestock is occasionally subject to predation
by natural carnivores. Most physical evidence so far produced for the chupacabra is better explained by wild dogs or other canids.
