CHUPACABRA SIGHTINGS IN CALIFORNIA
June 30, 1996
San Diego - A monster has been terrorizing the local town of Poway, just a
few miles north and San Diego and the Mexican border. Recent sightings and a
reported attack have put the entire community on alert. City officials,
however, claim to know nothing about the events that have the local residents
locking their doors and closing their windows at night.
The source of this terror is a creature called the Chupacabra. It is
described as three feet tall with bat like wings, fangs and large claws.
Somewhat resembling a gargoyle, it is said to be nocturnal and very
aggressive. It has been reported to have attacked both humans and livestock
and is said to be carnivorous. Various witnesses have reported seeing Chupacabras all the way from Puerto
Rico to Texas to Tijuana. This wave of sightings has raised many questions
about the origins of this new animal. Scientists with various research groups
have been speculating that this is a lab experiment in genetic engineering
which got loose, similar to the genetic experiments with killer bees that
were released in South America and have now reached the United States
[HUH?--Bruce W.]. While the experiments with killer bees were trying to
increase honey production, the reason someone would genetically engineer such
a creature as the Chupacabra is still unknown.
Anyone encountering one of these animals should immediately contact local
authorities. Do not approach it and move indoors as quickly and quietly as
