Chupacabras strikes in Chile
SOURCE: Diario La Cuarta
DATE: July 17, 2003
Sedate residents of the La Palmilla sector of the peaceful commune of Rauco in the 6th Region were startled to find 29 hens with their legs in the air, completely ex-sanguinated and with twin holes on their necks. The peasantry was shocked at the find and without thinking twice, assigned blame to the now-legendary "Chupacabras" who had attacked again.
They had no doubts in their minds, because aside from the holes, the hens - which were all egg layers - were completely dry, as though some unknown beast had sucked their last drop of blood.
Still trembling from their fear of the Chupacabras and concerned by the loss of the birds, the residents noted that the deaths had occurred simultaneously in two neighboring houses on Tuesday morning.
What is strange about the matter and causes the belief in a supernatural animal partial to vampirism is that no resident heard noises, which is very strange given the fact that hens tend to be very vocal if attacked. Even the guard dogs in both houses never realized what was going on, and never made a fuss.
The first attack affected the home of Maria Carolina Bravo, who lost 24 hens. According to this woman, upon inspecting the henhouse she found a hole through which some animal or the Chupacabras could have gotten through. The woman did not hear any sounds either. Martha Varas was left speechless when she found five dead hens, slain in the same mysterious fashion, in her backyard.
Carabineros (state police) of the Rauco Barracks appeared immediately and witnessed the inexplicable hen slaying for themselves.

George Fawcett out with new book
Veteran UFO investigator George Fawcett has just published a new book. Fawcett has been researching UFOs for 60 years and has now combined two of his previous unique Research Reports into one book, available in Oregon and from him directly at 602 Battleground Road, Lincolnton, NC 28092, tel. 704/735-5725. The book costs $15 and will be autographed upon request.
Fawcett previously published a highly illustrated UFO book in 1975, which sold out two editions. Titled Quarter Century Studies of UFOs in Florida, North Carolina and Tennessee, it is no longer available. His two research reports are titled "What We Have Learned About UFO Repetitions" (1947-1984) and "Human Reactions to UFOs and UFOnauts Worldwide" (1940-1983). You can e-mail George at firstname.lastname@example.org.
A worthwhile project
Sanni (a.k.a. Marcellina Beckwith) returned from a two-week trip to New Mexico in June, in which she attended the Sacred Hoop Festival in the Gila Mountains. There she made many more new connections and helped produce a CD of channeled music. Sponsors are being sought to help finance production of the CD to be presented to the world. If you are interested, please call 505/388-8826 to obtain more information.
Sanni’s coloring book, Celestial Beings of the Bible, is seeing a resurgence in interest. If you’d like a copy, they sell for $5.97 plus $1.00 shipping. Order one (or more) of these very special, fantastically illustrated books from Earth Star at P.O. Box 117, Paonia, CO 81428.
Last call for recipes
Aug. 15 is the deadline for getting recipes, remedies and other goodies to me for the book by Star Beacon readers, Cosmic Cooking, Healing Potions and Other Magic. We have some doozies! Surely you are going to want to share in this creation. Please send me your stuff... right now, while you’re thinking about it. Send recipes, remedies, potions, helpful hints, whatever... to Earth Star, P.O. Box 117, Paonia, CO 81428. The book will be out for holiday giving.
Back to work
After seven months of semi-retirement, in July I got hired back at High Country News, the "paper for people who care about the West," in Paonia, Colo. However, The Star Beacon remains my focused mission on Planet Earth. Thanks for being part of it!
