- A key phrase kept ringing
in the mind of Ana Reyes Tapia, the Viñas el Mar resident who lost
22 hens and 7 chickens under strange circumstances: "One of the policemen
said: "It came back again."
It was the latter which caused her a great sense of trepidation. Although
she claimed to be rather skeptical about the mythic Chupacabras, she stated
that at this time she is not dismissing the possibility, given the circumstances
surrounding the deaths of most of her livestock.
"I have 3 dogs who remain close to the henhouse at all time. But
that day, none of them barked, which was curious. On the other hand, last
night (two nights ago) they barked quite a bit, as if giving warning about
something. Apparently there wasn't anything going on," stated the
In her opinion, a dog could not be responsible for slaying her hens and
chickens. "It couldn't have been a dog. First, because if it had attacked
them, it would have killed 3 or 4 at the most. But in this case, there
were 29 dead between hens and chickens. And I don't know of any other animals
on the prowl in this sector".
She insisted that another situation which has been a source of surprise
to her involves the orifices made in the henhouse's fence, through which
the attacker entered and later departed.
"It's also remarkable that a known animal would have been able to
punch a hole at a height of over one meter to come in and another one,
slightly lower, to get out."
She added that "I really don't know what to think, especially after
one of the police officers said: "It came back again." I don't
know what he meant by that. In any event, they took 7 hens and a chicken
to have experts analyze them. They also collected some hairs which were
left on the henhouse fence and other things where they found the dead hens."
CONSTERNATION AMONG RESIDENTS
The fact was also a source of concern among residents who have farm animals.
After learning of the events, they said that they would adpot precautionary
One of the persons stated that until this period was over, he would sleep
with the hens safely kept in his bedroom .
Others hope to reinforce the fences and gates to their henhouses.
