From our good friend Scott Corrales comes the following news.

Residents of the Municipality of Jalpatagua, Jutiapa, are alarmed by the deaths of several farm animals. Apparently the so-called Chupacabras is on the prowl again, since all of the sheep have been found dead under mysterious circumstances.
Members of a family discovered the remains of several sheep slain in a mysterious fashion; it appears that another animal attacked them but merely drained their blood instead of devouring them.
Since then, they decided to keep watch over the sector for several evenings. However, no predator was found even while the beast kept attacking small animals.
One of the witnesses to the sheep deaths noted that in a single night, they found four dead animals lined up, presenting bite-marks on their necks.
Some residents have speculated that a there is a tigrillo (jaguar) on the loose. However, given the manner in which the animals are being attacked, others point to the involvement of the Chupacabras.
The fact of the matter is that not even the authorities have been able to explain the situation, and the mystery continues.
