Chile - Winged Chupacabra Paces Frightened Family In Car At 120 kmh


Source: La Estrella del Loa (Chile)


Much the same as occurred last year to a teacher and her friend as they motored along the Calama-Chuquicamata route, last weekend an entire family had a face-to-face encounter with an abominable creature near Cuesta de Montecristo.


A family traveling by car along Cuesta de Montecristo, heading toward the town of Calama, suffered a frightening face-to-face encounter with a creature of extraordinary characteristics, according to the story told by a Department of Justice functionary who heard the frightened groups' story only minutes later.


The mind-bending case, according to the source, occured around 2 a.m. last Sunday and left the couple and their two young children in a state of shock after running into an abominable creature that shared the same physical characteristics as the so-called Chupacabras: approximately 2 meters tall, strong legs like those of an ostrich, wings on its back and an animal-like head.


Horrified by the beast's presence, the driver sped his car, a white Nissan, until the speedometer needle went beyond the 120 kmh mark. In spite of this, the creature remained right there, pacing the vehicle throughout for a space of several meters


While fear chilled the bones of the vehicle's occupants, the beast made a sudden and incredible move that almost gave the witnesses heart attacks: Making use of its extraordinary abilities, it ran past the car and then crossed in front of it like a fireball, losing itself in the darkness.


"This thing wasn't running--rather, it seemed to fly beside the vehicle," stated the shaken witnesses to the phenomenon to the very first person they met after the incident--a functionary for the Department of Justice in El Loa Province, who requested anonymity from this newspaper.


This man, worthy of the highest credibility, stated that he was impressed by the family members' reaction as they screamed and wept desperately as they related the incredible story.


"I offered them some assistance, medical help or who knows, anything else they might have needed, but they refused. They were so frightened and shocked that they only wanted to go home."




A very similar case occurred last year along the Calama-Chuqicamata route, where a schoolteacher and her friend ran into an unknown beast after attending a Lions' Club meeting.


Truck Driver


Nor is this the only case of an irregular sighting recorded in Calama recently, since highly reliable sources have advised that a week or two ago, a truck driver had a similar encounter on one of the province's roads.


Aware of the authenticity of the source testimony, this newspaper exhorts this family to contact its newsroom in order to glean further details about the case. Faithful to its policy and out of respect to individual privacy, La Estrella del Norte, La Estrella del Loa y la Prensa de Tocopilla, guarantee total anonymity.
