Is there room in the Para/Crypto/Fortean world for a gun-toting, paranoid, bipolar, opinionated bastard? A lonely romantic in search of his lost soul? A knight, Samurai, gunslinger, born in the wrong century? A self-destructive, doom-driven survivor seeking redemption? A heavy drinking gonzo outlaw cryptozoologist whose ego is exceeded only by his libido?
No, there isn't. That's why I'm here...

Chupababras & Mutilations

From Argentina comes this report involving a possible chupacabra attack and even evidence of typical cattle mutilation. I've often wondered if these phenomena could be related. They do share a lot of common signs. Exsanguination of the victim animals, scant physical evidence as to the perpetrators, they almost exclusively occur at night, the wounds and injuries are almost always inconsistent with a predator attack...
Here's a way-out thought: Suppose (just suppose!) that these attacks are being carried out by interdimensional beings. Non-corporeal entities feeding on the blood and certain body parts. In the early days of cattle mutilations, there was rarely any visual evidence left behind. No tracks or prints, no wtnesses or descriptions of whoever or whatever was was responsible. But, with the increasing chupacabra phenomenon, reports began to include descriptions of the bloodsucking creature, tracks have been found, yet the creatures themselves have still eluded us.
According to traditional vampire lore, the vampire's early post-mortem visitations were far more akin to that of a malevolent spirit or ghost. The vampire was immaterial, non=corporeal. As the vampire began feeding on the blood or (more commonly) "energy" or "life forece", it became more solid, more physical.
So, what IF some kind of interdimensional vampire like entities are responsible not only for the older cattle mutilation cases, but for the current spate of chupacabras attacks as well? It would follow that whatever it is is becoming more and more physical, more corporeal. Who knows,prehaps someday these mysterious mutilators/vampires will become sufficiently physical to allow capture, identification, and study.
On the other hand, if more and more of these beings slip through and feed, and if cattle and sheep are no longer sufficient for them, we may just have a fight on our hands if we are to remain at the top of the food chain.

That is probably the most feasible scenario for a real-life zombie situation I've ever heard. We know we can't create zombies but if there were some blood-feeders that found that our general population was fair game, we'd have a similar situation to zombies on hand. I've thought about the cattle mutilations and chup's as being two seaprate incidents, but that's an interesting way to tie them together, especially since we have trouble catching a chup. My attitude about cattle mutilation and human abductions by "aliens" is visitations from our future selves hoping to get DNA and divert the future evolution of us into large-headed feeble-bodied creatures.
