Rural sections of South America are apparently being plagued by a vampire-like creature: Chupacabra. Destination Truth s1e3, Skyfy 2007

The idea that you would travel hundreds of light years to eat the goats: that strikes me as unusual. Seth Shostak, SETI, Puerto Rico

Chupacabras: literally translated the goat-sucker. This creature has killed hundreds of animals across the island [Puerto Rico]. Their bodies drained of blood. Their organs mysteriously removed. The only clue: strange circular openings in their necks. Unexplained Mysteries
Those who say they have seen the creature describe it as four to five feet tall, with huge red eyes, and grey skin that is part fur and part feather. It has short arms with claws, legs like a kangaroo and a row of sharp spikes down the middle of its back. Some say it also has wings. ibid.
Miami, Florida ... The Chupacabras – literally translated it’s Spanish for goat-sucker ... Animals were being mutilated all over South America ... It’s claimed the corpses were drained of blood ... They all had puncture wounds in their necks. The World’s Strangest UFO Stories s1e6: The Alien Vampire Chronicles, Discovery 2006
The body count of dead animals continued to rise. Naturally, the mysterious animal deaths were linked to the alien creature. But if it is an alien, what it is doing in Puerto Rico killing all the livestock? And the descriptions of this alien are unlike any other extraterrestrial. But what is an alien meant to look like anyway? We all have a picture in our heads ... The Chupacabras could be just the latest to arrive ... What are they doing in Puerto Rico? Key to working that out could be this giant telescope in the jungle – the Arecibo Radio Telescope. ibid.
This is also true: The jungles of Puerto Rico were very similar to Vietnam and the US military wanted to see if its de-foresting agent would work, but here’s where it gets really interesting. And there’s some truth is this one too: when American troops were fighting in the Philippines they heard the legend of something called the Aswang Vampire. The US military exploited the vampire myth by draining the blood from killed soldiers, and leaving their corpses on display to strike fear into the enemy. Orlando goes one step further: he believes that the CIA actually tried to create a blood-sucking monster. Orland believes experiments actually took place and that the Chupacabra is the result. ibid.

The Puerto Rican Research Group has examined hundreds of cases. And they are convinced there is something sinister and unnatural about the chupacabras’ phenomenon. ibid.
Just when it looked like Puerto Rico could put the chupacabras to rest it went global. It would appear in quick succession in Florida, Chile and Nicaragua. ibid.
It strikes in the dark of night. Its victims: chicken and cattle. It leaves a trail of blood that stretches from the Caribbean to the US mainland. The killings have one thing in common.
