Depending where you get the information the first chupacabra “sighting” was in Puerto Rico in 1975. Goats had been killed and their blood drained. Chupacabra, a Spanish word, translates as “goat sucker.” Sightings span from South America to Michigan
What the Chupacabra is thought to be varies greatly from space aliens pets left here on Earth to counterparts of the Devil himself. To get to the bottom of it many theories over the years have developed, alas the only Chupacabra to be tested turned out to be of Canine origin, and the other is thought to be a grey fox obviously a very sick animals indeed, hence its strange appearance.
I too have a theory and I do not know of anyone else to have come up with this theory independently, but I suppose there are others that have an inclination that it could be a mutation cause by some chemicals that were sprayed years ago. Before I offer the evidence to back up my theory lets just take a quick look at what is said about the Chupacabra.
The following information was taken from the newsletter "Beyond Boundaries" published by Joyce Murphy of Rainbow, Texas.
“One interesting feature of the way the Chupacabras kills its victims is
that a long telescopic device seems to protrude from one of its fangs and
this makes the perfectly round puncture would in the victim through which a
type of euthanasia technique is used. Whatever the Chupa does in the
instant before sucking the body totally devoid of blood prevents the victim
from suffering. Something is apparently injected into the victim's body
and possibly this unknown substance prevents rigor mortis which the lack of
is a characteristic of the victim's dead body.
The chupa does not exert any pressure or crushing force on its victims as
happens with other predators. There is the perfectly round hole wound
penetrating into any area of the victim necessary - through bone, muscle,
tissue and whatever necessary to penetrate at least 3 to 4 inches
cauterizing the wound as it goes into the victim's body. Even sections of
organs are then sucked out through this penetration leaving no natural
inflammatory process in the dead animal. The perfectly round wounds have
been found in different areas of the animal's body - not all in the neck
Many residents of Puerto Rico have actually seen this creature and give a
fairly consistent description. It is reportedly a cross between the Grey
alien humanoid - because of the shape of its head and eyes - with the body
of a bipedal, erect dinosaur, but with no tail. Two elongated red eyes
have been reported, together with small holes in the nostril area, a small
slit like mouth with fang type teeth protruding upwards and downwards from
The point is:
With sightings of the Chupacabras springing up all over the place and with the publicity it has accumulated over the years there of course, as with most things, hoaxers out there to make themselves feel good. However, farmers and small holders weep as their livelihoods are torn apart, sometimes with whole herds being attacked or killed.
The descriptions of the Chupacabras vary but show some consistencies and where evidence is found from animal carcasses there seems to be one major commonality and that is the puncture wounds and the lack of blood left in the bodies.
I for one am not so convinced about these creatures being left over pets from another world, nor do I subscribe to the notion that the Devil has sent them to plague mankind. I do however suspect that if anything the Chupacabras could be the progeny of a chemical that over the years has altered animals in someway or another.
If this is the reason then it might explain the similarities and differences of the reports of each Chupacabra. That is to say each area or country that has had a sighting will have difference species of wildlife therefore if a mutation has occurred via a chemical it could affect the endocrine system in a similar way but the end result of the mutation could look quite different.
So what chemical do I have in mind and why?
Well, let us start by taking a look at some familiar animals (Human beings) that we know have been affected by a chemical spray used in Vietnam, namely a herbicide called Agent Orange.
Some people may find these pictures disturbing!
Agent Orange is so called due to the band colour on the container used to store the chemicals. There are others Herbicides that include Agent Blue, Agent Purple, Agent White
Agent Orange Overview. Approximately 20 million gallons of herbicides were used in Vietnam between 1962 and 1971 to remove unwanted plant life and leaves which otherwise provided cover for enemy forces during the Vietnam Conflict. Shortly following their military service in Vietnam, some veterans reported a variety of health problems and concerns which some of them attributed to exposure to Agent Orange or other herbicides. The Department of Veterans Affairs has developed a comprehensive program to respond to these medical problems and concerns. The principal elements of this program include quality healthcare services, disability compensation for veterans with service-connected illnesses, scientific research and outreach and education.
In 2001 it was confirmed that agent orange had been tested in these areas in the USA
1. The Korean demilitarized zone in 1968 and 1969 (extensive spraying).
2. Fort Drum, NY in 1959 (testing).
Other areas where veterans allege AO to have been sprayed include:
1. Guam from 1955 through 1960s (spraying).
2. Johnston Atoll (1972-1978) was used for unused AO storage.
3. Panama Canal Zone from 1960s to early 1970s (spraying).
4. Elgin AFB (Agents Orange and Blue) on Firing Range and Viet Cong Village.
5. Wright-Patterson AFB (OH) and Kelly AFB (TX).

See section D under combat. This was just revised in Dec of 2001. This allows those that served outside of Vietnam and were exposed to AO to file for compensation. Also attached is a document about Panama and Guam having also been added to the list of AO locations.
Test trials of Agent Orange were carried out in Puerto Rico the page that I had the information from has now been taken off so there is no longer a link on this information.
Other areas that Agent Orange, Agent Blue, Agent Purple, Agent White and other Herbicides have been tested or stored are:
Aberdeen Proving Ground, Aberdeen, Maryland
Apalachicola National Forest (Sophoppy, Florida)
Avon Air Force Base, Florida
Bushnell Army Air Field, Florida
Camp Detrick, Maryland
Dar and Prek Clong, Cambodia
Eglin Air Force Base, Florida
Fort Gordon, Georgia
Fort Richie, Maryland
Fredericton, New Brunswick, Canada
Guanica, and Joyuda, Puerto Rico
Huntington County, State College, Pennsylvania
Kingston, Rhode Island
Kompong Cham Province, Cambodia
Las Marias, Puerto Rico
Las Mesas Cerros and La Jugua, Mayaguez, Puerto Rico
Loquillo, Puerto Rico
Mauna Loa, Hilo, Hawaii
Operation PACER HO (Disposal at sea)
Pinal Mountains, Globe, Arizona
Pranburi and other locations in Thailand
Rio Grande, Puerto Rico
Wayside and Wilcox, Mississippi
Well there you go, I think it is more likely that this could have affected some wildlife more than others, it could be argued that I am wrong due to the fact that if it is indeed a chemical spray that has mutated the progeny of wildlife after all this time, why are there not more sightings of mutant animals. However I did say it was just a theory and if you are the researcher that you think you are, prove me wrong or right and I will gladly accept what you are saying as food for thought. I think what made me so mad about all this was the writing on the side of one of the AO containers which reads, “The Purple People Eater” This just smacks of the fact that they knew exactly what it would do to people.
