- The efforts of Senator Carlos Cantero Ojeda to unravel
all the compiled information by official organizations involved in the
Chupacabras case are resonating among UFO enthusiasts throughout the world.
Such international UFO and paranormal enthusiasts include Miami UFO Center
and even the Jeff Rense Program, a very popular U.S. radio talk show. Ranked
number eight in the world by Top9.com, delivers a high quality Internet
broadcast and maintains a website that receives 5 million visits every
- Recently, Jeff Rense's website has published two translated
articles from this newspaper. One of the articles mentions Senator Cantero's
intentions to declassify Chilean police and government reports regarding
the Chupacabras case in order to get to the truth. As a result, ufologists
throughout the world are looking forward to the release of the information,
whether it's favorable or not.
- SENATOR's ENDORSEMENT
- During his last statements to newspapers like "La
Estrella del Loa, "La Estrella del Norte, and "La Prensa de Tocopilla,
Doctor Virgilio Sanchez-Ocejo, Miami UFO Center director, has praised the
senator's initiative because it finally solidifies his now lengthy investigations
in Calama, Chile. "This cannot be kept from the public for much longer;
it's been more than a year since we began gathering physical evidence regarding
these phenomena, he said. Doctor Sanchez-Ocejo also stated that Jaime Ferrer,
his associate in Chile and director of Calama UFO Center, has the support
from many scientists and professionals with vast experience in the paranormal
- Besides expressing his support for the senator, Sanchez-Ocejo
explained that he belongs to a non-government organization and conducts
independent investigations with the assistance of his associates. Furthermore,
he does not receive monetary contributions from third parties.
- POPULAR MYTHOLOGY
- One of the many organizations involved in the investigation
of the mysterious animal deaths since last year is the Department of Environmental
Health. Doctor Lucas Buchard Señoret, a veterinarian and head of
that department, claims that his organization submitted reports to the
local tribunal courts, police departments, and the media through the pathological
anatomy department of the Calama Hospital.
- The department head also stated that in the reports,
his organization clearly declared that the deaths of the domestic animals
in the area were not attributed to a mythological creature but rather caused
by stray dogs, and in some cases, by people who took advantage of the restlessness
and panic of the community.
- Jaime Ferrer shows a total opposite view. He believes
that there are still no professionals capable of solving the mystery behind
this phenomenon. "A veterinarian, a zoologist, or even a biologist
may have an opinion about this case; however, they cannot define the outcome,
nor come to a conclusion because we are facing a species that is unclassified
and totally unknown to us. That's why we hear ludicrous statements, such
as the notion that this phenomenon is caused by stray dogs. He said.
