- Calama, Chile - In light of recent reports of a mysterious
being jumping on rooftops, neighbors from the Manuel Rodriguez area in
Calama witnessed yet another bizarre event that included the death of a
lamb. The incident took place last Friday at a home near the local mall.
- The incident was reported to this newspaper (La Estrella
del Loa - ed.) via telephone at around 10 in the morning. A group of investigative
reporters were dispatched immediately to the scene.
- After following directions from a resident that identified
himself only as "Samuel" on the the phone, the journalists arrived
at a home located at 3448 Balmaceda Avenue, where several people, including
local residents, awaited for the members of press.
- After crossing a narrow corridor, they were led to a
backyard where they found the gruesome scene of the bloodstained lamb.
The animal was found lying flat on the ground a few centimeters away from
the entrance to the corral.
- Several scratch marks were found on the ground, which
were similar to the ones found on the dead animal. The marks were at different
locations of the scene; some were at the entrance of the corral, and some
were located as far as the back entrance of the property. All the marks
were similar; they were all showing three parallel lines, one or two centimeters
- The possibility of a predator attack was very likely.
The property owner showed reporters the puncture wounds around the neck
area of the carcass.
- After asking people a few questions, the reporters soon
realized who the property owner was: It was a quiet man, who was very shy
and didn't want to provide too many details about his personal background
for fear of being ridiculed. On the other hand, neighbor Herminio Guzman
Amurrio, told reporters what happened. "This happened at about 2:30
in the morning. I heard some noises, as if there were dogs running on the
roof. I member the noises because I was already awake; I go to work very
early because I'm a baker", said Guzman.
- Guzman lives by himself; he lost his wife some time ago.
Overwhelmed by the curiosity, he decided to step outside to find out what
was causing the noise; however, he did not find anything out of the ordinary.
He went back inside and returned to his early morning tasks. Minutes later,
he went to work at the bakery as usual and forgot about the strange noises
for a while, until he returned home and saw what happened at his neighbor's
house. When he arrived at the property, Samuel called him to show him the
- After "breaking the ice", but always avoiding
the camera, Samuel began talking a little more to the journalists. He told
them his wife was the one who convinced him to report the incident to the
newspaper, minutes after finding the carcass. He also stated that the he
had just gotten the lamb the day before. He admitted that the corral door
was not closed properly due to a malfunction with the latch.
- After consulting his opinion, he confessed the thought
of the Chupacabras being involved in the death of his lamb did come to
mind a few times. He said it was unavoidable to think about it after several
reports came from his own neighborhood a few days ago, to which they mentioned
the presence of a strange creature jumping on top of the roofs.
- Although his answers and statements were somewhat evasive
and vague, Samuel did state that to say that dogs caused this horrible
death would be totally absurd. On the other hand, he admitted that one
of his dogs was very mean, but incapable to kill an animal in that grotesque
- Neither Samuel, nor his family of five (four adults),
recall hearing any noises that night. After facing the death of his only
livestock, he soon realized that nothing will bring the animal back; therefore
it would be a waste of time to keep on lamenting for the loss. He believes
it is unnecessary to give too much importance to this incident, but he
will make himself available for questioning in case any report needs to
be filed by the police.
