Has the legend of El Chupacabra finally been debunked? Benjamin Radford of the
says he can prove the purported blood-sucking, livestock-killing beast doesn’t exist.
Using Facebook, Radford tracked down Madelyn Tolentino, the Puerto Rican woman who first described the chupacabra in 1995. Back then, she gave a detailed description that included wide, dark eyes, thin arms, three fingers, air holes in place of a nose, and feathery spikes on its back. That bears a strong resemblance to the alien in the film
, which Tolentino admitted to Radford she had seen just weeks prior to giving her description.
So far, Bigfoot and the Loch Ness Monster have no comment on Radford’s finding.
