A mythical creature, referred to as the ‘Goat-Sucker’, has reportedly been sighted after a series of livestock deaths in the area.
Drone footage captured what appears to be a dark, two-legged creature walking through an open field.
The sighting occurred shortly after several cows, llamas, and alpacas were discovered dead in the vicinity.
The unusual wounds found on the animals led many locals to believe that the mythical creature known as the ‘Chupacabra’ or ‘Goat-Sucker’ was responsible.
According to legend, this demon-like creature feeds on the blood of livestock.
The deceased animals were found near the Bolivian city of Oruro.
Given the injuries on the animals’ necks, many residents attributed their deaths to the Chupacabra.
Local farmers have reportedly taken measures to protect their livestock by erecting fences in response to the alleged attacks by this mythical creature.
It remains unclear whether authorities are investigating the claims of livestock blood-drinking by the creature.
In a separate incident last month, a Chupacabra was believed to be responsible for the death of a ram in Mexico.
The lifeless white ram was discovered with wounds to its neck, mouth, and eyes in the rural village of Leona Vicario, located approximately 25 miles west of the Mexican resort of Cancún.
While some villagers suspected a wild cat as the culprit, many attributed the mysterious bite marks on the ram’s neck to the Goat-Sucker.
Elvira commented, “Jaguarundis typically consume the soft parts such as the eyes and tongue. It could have been that animal or another one with similar behavior.”
Another local resident added, “It reminds me of a documentary about explorers who went missing and were later found with missing eyes and tongues.”
Abdiel mentioned, “In my village, we have been told for years that it is a nocturnal bird that feeds on the brain matter of animals. In my village, we know it as the Xnuc.”
There have been numerous alleged sightings of the Chupacabra across the Americas since the 1970s, ranging from as far north as Maine in the US to as far south as Chile.
However, all reported sightings have been dismissed as anecdotal and lacking substantial evidence.
