(Spanish) "chupacabra" = "goat sucker".
Some people believe its an animal, others believe its a vampire-like alien.
I once worked security at a business which had many Spanish-speaking employees doing the hard labor. I knew one of their supervisors, an Anglo who
knew Spanish, and while visiting with him on my rounds, he told his workers in Spanish that I'd seen a chupacabra roaming the grounds late at night
(it was early evening at this point). The fear on the faces and in the eyes of the workers was real, palpable, and visceral.
After the story, and elderly Hispanic man asked me in English, "You've actually seen that animal?". Which I took that he believes in them, and
that they are some type of unclassified animal.
I believe it is a folktail, ala the donkey-lady.
