Mysterious animal deaths continued to be reported in several countries in America. The newspapers named the creature "El Chupacabra" (the goat-sucker). In-depth investigations claimed that there was no conclusive evidence of blood drainage in the bodies, also pointing out similarities between the creature described in the sightings and a monster from an sci-fi film released at the time.
However, many people accuse the authorities of covering up the truth about El Chupacabra. A farmer and his family reportedly disappeared after his home was invaded by a group of creatures that would have escaped from a military base. To date, no official explanation has been given. Witnesses altered their versions and documents linked to the case were lost in a fire.
