A farmer in Mexico lost an astounding 71 animals to a mysterious nocturnal predator that some suspect could be the infamous chupacabra. The gruesome slayings reportedly occurred over the course of the last few weeks on Simplicio Martinez's property which is located near the base of the Sierra de Juarez mountain range. According to the beleaguered farmer, the first incident took place on March 28th, when an unknown animal somehow killed 20 of the farmer's sheep in one night.
Already reeling from that tremendous loss, Martinez's luck got even the worse when the mysterious beast returned to his farm again last week. During this event, a night watchman at the site heard a commotion where the animals are kept and ventured out to investigate. Despite being armed with a machete, the guard opted not to intervene in the situation after he spotted what appeared to be a black creature of "tremendous" size. The next morning, Martinez discovered that a whopping 51 chickens had been killed by the voracious predator.
