Sleeping with Chupacabras?

A Chupacabra is a mythical creature rumored to inhabit parts of Southwest Texas and Mexico. The name comes from the animal's reported habit of attacking and drinking the blood of livestock, especially goats. Physical descriptions of the creature vary. But, it is supposedly a heavy creature, the size of a large hairless coyote, with a row of spines reaching from the neck to the base of the tail. (Illustration by Sammie W. King)
