Or so thinks this Taxidermist who's student found it dead after he laid poison in his barn. Video - Breaking News Videos from CNN.com Thing has some wicked looking fangs that's for certain. Whether or not it's actually the legendary beast that sucks all the blood from goats and other livestock remains to be proven, however, it definitely dilutes the stories my grandparents used to tell me as a kid to keep me from playing out in the mountains, riverbeds and orchards too late at night with my friends. The Chupacabra in the Mexican folklore I grew up with had a more human like appearance as if some poor soul became possesed with some demon turning it into a vampiric creature that would kill goats and sometimes people by sucking all of their blood dry. Bullshit! Me and my friends spent hours into the night trying to catch or see one of these things, and only succeeded at scaring the crap out of eachother instead. We had all kinds of crazy schemes for trying to catch one of these things. My favorite was when we convinced this one guy to wear a porkchop around his neck and wait by the river while we held sniper position with pellet guns. He got chased by a coyote, we bailed him out, but he was pissed! He had this huge stick we made into a spear, and the dumbass tripped and lost it into the river...not our fault. anyway, anyone else grow up with any wierd folklore stories like this when they were kids? And did any of you try to brave the wild trying to find it? Or did you just cower in fear?!
