|The beast walks among us, searching for goat blood.|
Recorded sightings of the evasive beast of Mexican legend describe exactly the type of behavior happening at Applequist's farm. As recently as January 2008, Chupacabra killed eight chickens in Capiz province of the Philippines.
Lest you think this is actually the work of a wild animal, Applequist has already contacted the Missouri Department of Conservation, and Lee's Summit Animal Control. Neither has responded to her complaints. She's also questioned her neighbors about coyotes, but no one has seen any in the area.
Residents should be on the look out for something resembling a hairless, wild dog, with reptilian skin, forked tongue and long fangs. Do not attempt to capture the monster yourself, but call animal control immediately.
