Chupacabra Spotted at Kalani!!

chupaIt was a lazy day in the office when a volunteer came rushing out of the jungle toward us in a panic! They stopped just short of us and doubled over to catch their breath, wiping beads of sweat from their brow. Once they calmed down a bit we asked what was wrong.  As the blood drained out of their face and fear set in their eyes they whispered one single word: “Chupacabra!” Chupacabra??? A chupacabra HERE?!?! Suddenly we were all in a rush, shoving our essential items in suitcases, collapsing our tents, trying desperately to make plane reservations between failing WiFi connections, calling loved ones to say goodbye, hugging every person who came across our path bidding them farewell, until it finally dawned on us… Wait, what the heck is a chupacabra??  We went to Wikipedia for help:

“The chupacabra ( literally “goat-sucker”) is a legendary creature in the folklore of parts of the Americas. The name comes from the animal’s reported habit of attacking and drinking the blood of livestock, especially goats.” GRAPHIC AND ABOVE QUOTED MATERIAL FROM WIKIPEDIA

chWe burst in fits of laughter and couldn’t believe we almost fell for that prank until we heard the volunteer had taken a picture of the fabled creature. Ok, we had to see this for ourselves. Though we aren’t photo experts the snapped image did seem to be genuine. The strange figure that loomed in the image making its way toward the dining lanai was undoubtedly odd, but could it really have been the fabled chupacabra?? We leave it to the reader to decide. If the figure in the image was actually human, we sure do wish there was some sort of clue to figure out who it was…
