In 1995, a vampiric creature burst onto the scene in Puerto Rico. Goats, chickens, and other livestock were being found dead all across the island, their blood missing and small punctures found on their carcasses. The chupacabra has been linked to UFOs and secret lab experiments, but where did it really come from? And is it even real?
