9/11 Creature

Posted by: Loren Coleman on September 11th, 2006

Chupa de Mayo

On the night of September 11, 1997, Ines Valdivieza and her 6-year-old daughter observed a small creature, brown in color with large red eyes, run from a pig-pen area in Colonia Revolucion Mexicana, Mexico.

It made high bounding strides and disappeared into the dark. Five hogs were later found dead, completely drained of blood with strange scars on their necks.

Loren Coleman About Loren Coleman
Loren Coleman is one of the world’s leading cryptozoologists, some say “the” leading living cryptozoologist. Certainly, he is acknowledged as the current living American researcher and writer who has most popularized cryptozoology in the late 20th and early 21st centuries. Starting his fieldwork and investigations in 1960, after traveling and trekking extensively in pursuit of cryptozoological mysteries, Coleman began writing to share his experiences in 1969. An honorary member of Ivan T. Sanderson’s Society for the Investigation of the Unexplained in the 1970s, Coleman has been bestowed with similar honorary memberships of the North Idaho College Cryptozoology Club in 1983, and in subsequent years, that of the British Columbia Scientific Cryptozoology Club, CryptoSafari International, and other international organizations. He was also a Life Member and Benefactor of the International Society of Cryptozoology (now-defunct). Loren Coleman’s daily blog, as a member of the Cryptomundo Team, served as an ongoing avenue of communication for the ever-growing body of cryptozoo news from 2005 through 2013. He returned as an infrequent contributor beginning Halloween week of 2015. Coleman is the founder in 2003, and current director of the International Cryptozoology Museum in Portland, Maine.

    That’s definitely a new version. I am still curious about the strange scars. Are they bite marks like legendary vampires, slits like the vampire bat? If bitten, 1 or 2 holes? Do we know if there are any legends from the Mayans or Aztec about something like this?

  2. Kwaedwil responds:

    Sounds like a Chupacabra to me. Maybe with some adaptions.

  3. Loren Coleman responds:

    The illustration is a generic one of Chupacabras. I like it as it shows a supposedly human-startled creature with animals it possibly has killed (a moment that is often not illustrated in the Chupacabra sketches). It is merely added to enhance an otherwise short sighting report. The two are not necessarily related.

  4. crypto_randz responds:

    A possible EL CHUPACABRAS encounter, once they drain their prey they leave at high speed they are clever and smart they are very elusive. I have read much material on these creaturs.

  5. traveler responds:

    just a quick one…is it proper to call it El Chupacabras? does that imply more the one creature? that would Los chupacabras…and isnt it a femine form? so how about La Chupacabra? just curious.

  6. twblack responds:

    Yep a chupa encounter.

  7. mystery_man responds:

    Yes, it is proper to call it El Chupacabras. There was an article on this blog awhile back explaining why. Because it means “to suck” as a verb and in Spanish that would be Chupa cabraS. So it is literally the one that sucks goats. Chupa= goat, cabras=to suck in the correct conjugation for a third person. I’m pretty sure that was the explanation given, if my memory serves.

  8. MindEcdysiast responds:

    Mystery_man, you have the right idea and the correct meaning, but you are murdering my language…

    Chupacabras, Chupa means to suck and Cabras are goats. Sometimes I have seen it addressed as El Chupacabra (meaning only one of the “Chupas”) but the correct name would be Chupacabras, because upon discovery it was not one goat, but many, that had been mutilated.

    But hey! Kudos for giving it the good ol’ try…

  9. Loren Coleman responds:

    I wrote an entire blog about this. Chupacabras, not Chupacabra. See “Chupawhat?”.
