Hello and welcome to ATS.
I will speak from personal experience, as a person who has traveled all over my country looking for such myths and legends. I'm from Greece and we
have a very long list of folk tales that include vampires, fairies and other such creatures.
The truth is that there is no actual proof. I have seen an alleged vampire grave in Crete and along with friends we have witnessed a weird
creature/spirit/person in Olympia. In my time i have seen some crazy stuff and i have come to the conclusion that most of the legends have some truth
in them (and that we live in a very weird world). Someday, when i will stop being very lazy, i will write about them.

On the other hand they are not animals. These are intelligent creatures. So if we assume that the folk tales are 100% true and they were being pursued
by the humans, they probably learned how to hide themselves and not become a target.
