HORIZON CITY -- The legend may be back, just as mysterious and dark, to stalk the unsuspecting. Until last weekend, Cesar Garcia and brother-in-law Juan Miranda saw their life near Horizon City as secluded and peaceful. They moved to the area from Chicago three years ago, but have suddenly been beset by strange and unexplained occurrences. Their rabbits went into hiding, their cat spent the weekend on the roof of their house, their roosters didn't crow, and their dogs didn't bark. And at least 30 of their chickens were killed by an unknown interloper. The brothers are hesitant to say what they think spooked their animals or killed their chickens. But when pressed, they said it: El Chupacabras.

"We looked it up on the Internet -- the Chupacabras," he said.
