For those who put the phrases “unfamiliar beings” along with “Puerto Rico,” it can virtually actually make folks consider the legendary Chupacabra. The very fact is, although, there are lots of extra bizarre beasts roaming across the island, as you will see now. Pucho is somebody who I interviewed on Puerto Rico again in 2005 with Canada’s Redstar Movies. Not too lengthy earlier, he’d seen a really unusual creature, but it surely positively wasn’t a Chupacabra. He was strolling previous an area place of worship when he heard a really unusual noise: it was a loud, virtually bellowing, roar. It crammed the air and introduced Pucho to a sudden halt. He regarded round for just a few moments after which, to his horror, noticed what was accountable. Perched in a big close by tree was an enormous, bird-like creature, however one which was simply the scale of a fully-grown man; presumably even greater. It was lined in feathers and as soon as once more bellowed in fear-inducing trend. What occurred subsequent amazed Pucho. He stated that the creature didn’t fly away within the trend that one would count on from a hen. Extremely, it merely opened its wings and – as a substitute of flapping them furiously – rose up into the skies above with what gave the impression to be barely an effort. In seconds it was gone. It was a captivating day. A mysterious one, too. Now, onto one other one in all Puerto Rico’s monsters that’s positively not a Chupacabra.
How about Bigfoot? Have you ever ever thought that Puerto Rico may need its very personal equal of the world’s most well-known monster? And deep within the coronary heart of the island’s El Yunque Rain-Forest, no much less? Most individuals most likely have not given a lot thought to such a factor. There are, nonetheless, just a few such tales circulating round on the island. Certainly, I heard a few of these accounts whereas I used to be on Puerto Rico in 2013, with Galafilm Productions of Canada. The present was Nationwide Park Mysteries. One of many issues that significantly me was the claims of the witnesses that the Bigfoot of Puerto Rico, which is claimed to be considerably extra agile-like and smaller, has the power to turn out to be invisible. Such claims have been made in regards to the Bigfoot of the USA. Most Bigfoot seekers within the USA, nonetheless, ignore absolutely anything and all the pieces that even has a bit little bit of the paranormal connected to it. Too dangerous: the Puerto Rico-Bigfoot instances are genuinely fascinating.
My fifth quest to uncover the reality of the Puerto Rican beast referred to as the Chupacabra was in late December 2008. It turned out to be a worthwhile journey. Just about as quickly as I arrived, I discovered that one specific a part of San Juan – Rio Piedras – was dwelling in what might solely be termed a state of downright worry. For greater than three weeks, there had been sightings, completely at night time, of a big black cat creeping across the neighborhood. Round 4 toes lengthy and muscular, it was believed to have killed and eaten no less than fifteen pet cats within the space, savaged a sheep or a number of, and apparently terrified a handful of people that crossed paths with it within the backstreets of Rio Piedras, late on one specific Saturday night time. Now, let’s transfer onto one other unusual affair. In actual fact, a positively monstrous affair. Norka is somebody who me and monster-hunter Jon Downes interviewed in 2004, whereas filming for the SyFy Channel’s Proof Optimistic present.
Late one night time in 1975, and whereas driving by El Yunque, Norka noticed one thing that would solely be termed as a large bat. Certainly, it was round five-feet in top and had an enormous pair of wings. She slammed on the brakes because the darkish, shuffling factor went from one facet of the street to the opposite and that was then misplaced within the dense bushes. It very a lot jogged my memory of the massive cockroaches within the 1997 film, Mimic. Test it out and you may see what I imply. What all of this serves to reveal is that Puerto Rico is not simply the house of 1 sort of unknown animal. Clearly, there are quite a lot of of them. And, primarily based on what I’ve shared with you on this article, it would not shock me if there are different, unknown, animals deep in El Yunque and elsewhere within the coronary heart of my absolute favourite place to go to.
