The corpse of an unidentified figure with human-like hands has been found floating in a stream in Latin America. Locals on the continent believe the creature to have been the mythical vampire-like chupacabra.
The body was discovered in the town of Carmen del Parana in southern Paraguay by the locals, who filmed it floating face down in the water. The lifeless creature appeared to be the size of an average dog, and seemingly had fair skin with no fur, and four limbs with human-like fingers and a long tail.
Rescue services and experts were called to the scene to fish out the body and determine its origins.
Local news have been broadcasting the finding with superstitious locals claiming that they have finally discovered the legendary chupacabra. The predator has been terrifying the continent since the middle of the 20th century, and is believed to be responsible for the deaths of goats and other farm animals by sucking their blood (its name literally translates as “goat sucker.”)
