In 1975, similar killings in the small town of Moca were attributed to el vampiro de Moca ('the vampire of Moca').


The chupacabra or chupacabras (, literally 'goat-sucker'; from chupar, 'to suck', and cabras, 'goats') is a legendary creature in the folklore of parts of the Americas, with its first purported sightings reported in Puerto Rico in 1995.

The name is attributed to Puerto Rican comedian Silverio PĂ©rez, who coined the label in 1995 while commenting on the attacks as a San Juan radio deejay. == History == The first reported attack eventually attributed to the creatures occurred in March 1995 in Puerto Rico.


There are sightings also found in India in 2016 by zoologist Dijo Thomas.


Shortly after the first reported incidents in Puerto Rico, other animal deaths were reported in other countries, such as the Dominican Republic, Argentina, Bolivia, Chile, Colombia, Honduras, El Salvador, Nicaragua, Panama, Peru, Brazil, the United States, and Mexico. In October and December 2018, there came many reports of suspected chupacabras in Manipur, India.
