Los Chupacabras: The Interview - Part I
Is this a photo of a Chupacabra
I look upon my writings as a method of education. Most people do not know a lot about the whole UFO phenomenon, except the humorous blurbs they hear on television news that tend to cast witnesses or researchers in a negative light, or the occasional sensationalist cable program. What I would like to accomplish is the enlightenment of as many as possible to a wealth of phenomena that really is occurring in our world involving UFOs and Extraterrestrials. Please understand that these are my views based upon my research, and until we capture an alien entity in public, recover an ET spacecraft without the government’s assistance, etc., my understandings can be subject to change. I roll with what feels right and with what has appropriate substantiation.

Recently I have been studying a mostly Brazilian phenomenon the locals refer to as “Chupas”. Most things Brazilian are great, but I finally found one that is not so good. Chupas are a relatively new anomaly in the UFO arena. Most of the information about this phenomenon is derived from interviews of locals, who might be actual witnesses or can just fill in the local legends surrounding the subject.

In 1977, the Brazilian government heard complaints of a phenomenon attacking locals. Witnesses describe the phenomenon as small square metallic objects, a few feet on each side, that flies 20 to 30 feet off the ground, hovers, and emits a hum most describe resembling that of a refrigerator. These objects fly through the treetops at night and seem to aggressively attack locals.

The local economy is poor, and residents have to hunt and fish to gather food. They tend to enjoy these activities and have better results at night, when animals come out searching for prey. Chupas appear near the hunters while they are stalking through the woods or hiding in hastily made tree stands, directing a bright, focused beam of light on them. When this light hits its target, complaints of scarring that appeared to be from repeated stabs by small pins accompanied by a loss of blood (not bleeding, but like a removing of a portion of the blood supply), burning of skin, and intense pain was experienced that lasted anywhere from a few weeks to years. Locals began referring to this anomaly as “vampire lights” or “chupa-chupa” (which means the sucker) as a result of the types of wounds experienced.

The phenomenon seemed to appear first in the area of Para, Brazil, but soon spread to the country’s capital of Belem, with complaints attacks and injuries pouring in from local citizenry. The Brazilian military launched Operation Saucer in an attempt to identify the phenomenon. Soldiers were sent to the area to interview witnesses, examine the injured, and try to observe the phenomenon. Some of the soldiers sent to the area became witnesses themselves, with a classified 2,000 page report, photos, and almost 16 hours of film.
