The Goat Sucker is a famous Cryptid, who is believed to inhabit parts of the America’s. Puerto Rico has the first reported sightings, the name comes from he creatures habit of drinking the blood of livestock animals. The descriptions vary but it is supposedly a heavy set creature the size of a small bear with quills from the neck to tail. Sightings are usually not supported with any evidence and those that have are largely disproved as canid’s with mange.

A report, presumed the first. was made in Puerto Rico in 1995 where 8 sheep were found dead. They had three puncture wounds to the chest and were drained of blood. In 1975 a rather similar thing had been reported but had been attributed to the Vampire of Moca instead.

Many of the reports have turned out to be coyote with mange, one such case was August 2007 in Cuero, Texas, where Phylis Canion lost nearly 30 chickens. She brought the thing to light and it was tested, it was found to be a gray fox with extreme mange.

A similar legend from New Orleans concerns a lovers lane, location Grunch Road. It is said to be inhabited by Grunches who bear a similar resemblance to the chupacabre.
