A Puerto Rican police officer shoots the Chupacabras

In mid-September 1995, at the height of the Chupacabras scare, Puerto Rican police officer, Juan Collazo Vazquez, of the Canóvanas Police Department was asleep at his house in the Community of Campo Rico. He had retired early, as he had to be up at 4:00 am the following day. At 11:10 pm (23:10 hrs.), the sound of his car’s burglar alarm awoke him.

The officer recounts the following:

"I put on a t-shirt, grabbed my bullet-proof vest and my .357 Smith and Wesson Magnum, and went downstairs. When I got to the garage, I saw my chow dog struggling to get away from something. As a precaution, I didn’t turn on the light, so there was only some ambient light from the moon. I got to within nine feet away, and saw this animal. It held the dog by its short arms and was trying to spike it in the neck with something. My chow is an aggressive dog and quite large. I assumed at first that it was another dog, but then I noticed that it looked something like a kangaroo, with an oval-shaped snout. It was about three feet in height. I tried to approach, but I never saw anything like it; it had oval-shaped eyes, from the side views at first. And then, I went into shock.

The Chupacabras is shot:

"I pulled back, then pulled out my gun to aim at the creature and fired one shot. I can never forget it. The creature kind of squealed, and reacted. It became like a ball of hair, to protect itself. I used a hollow-point, split-end (dumdum) bullet. I realized the bullet went into it, but did not exit it. That’s amazing! My car was on the other side of the creature and there was no impact point. The creature was sort of catapulted on the wall, and then it springs back up again.

"I was so shocked. I scraped my knees running away and up the outside stairs. My wife started to come downstairs-she thought I’d been shot. I grabbed her hair and ran back with her into the house. I was shaking all over. I couldn’t believe what I saw. My wife started slapping me and asking what happened. On coming out of my shock, we returned downstairs. We found blood and hair… very thick hair, which the forensic section of the police examined. It smelled terrible, like rotted blood.

"The next day, the blood on the garage floor was still liquefied; it should have coagulated by then. It rinsed away real quick, but it had this horrible smell. The dog was traumatized! The Chupacabras had sort of shaved off the area it wanted to pierce, but it didn’t actually do that. Afterwards, the dog began to shake and seem ill. When he bit my son in the back, we decided to take him to the animal refuge."

When he was asked how the Chupacabras left, he replied "I didn’t stay to see that!" He stated that it left tracks in the mud… three big toes… outside the house.

No known species:

Blood sample from the Collazo Chupacabras incident were taken away by the police forensic specialists. The sample of the blood (and other associated materials) from a Chupacabras which had been injured in the area two nights later were collected and analyzed by doctors specializing in genetics. Fearing professional repercussions, the doctors insisted on anonymity. Although the original analysis indicated that the sample showed similar characteristics to the blood of human Type A Rh, Positive, later analysis ruled this out. It showed that the ratios of traces of magnesium, phosphorus, calcium and potassium, as well as the proportion of albumin to globulin, were not compatible with either human or known terrestrial animal species.


New species of terrestrial and aquatic creatures are discovered occasionally. Could the Chupacabras be indigenous to Earth? I do not believe this to be the case. In addition to the remarkable results from the blood sample, the creature’s speed and method of flying and of killing its victims is phenomenal. Its description matches no known species. In cases where new terrestrial species are discovered, their genetic heritage is traceable.

Which terrestrial creature matches the description of the Chupacabras in certain critical features, such as the eyes? However, that description is the most widely reported alien hominid creatures in Puerto Rico and in Latin America. A logical hypothesis, then, is that the Chupacabras is an alien creature, perhaps a hybrid, created by an alien species for a purpose we can only guess for the time being.

Although there have been many unexplained sightings in the town of Lajas, the situation there has been hyped by the amount of lies and exaggeration by a group of so-called, "ufologists" who ignore other areas of Puerto Rico to promote tourism in Lajas. That was evident when my wife and my daughter confronted a terrifying experience in the town of Aguada with extraterrestrials and that group of charlatans refused our plea for help. Of course, if it happened in Lajas they would have jumped on the opportunity for fame and tourism for that town. Those hoaxes and lies were approved and sanctioned by the then mayor of that town who named route 303 "The extraterrestrial route". The idea of building an "UFOport" (ovnipuerto), “la llorona sightings" and the biggest hoax of them all, "that a UFO crashed there" all this could only be found in a science fiction novel.

About me

Ufologist, criminal investigator, musician, artist and writer.

I worked 20 years for the New York City Department of Correction. First as a Correction Officer for 4 years, Captain for 12 years, and as a Deputy Warden for 4 years. As a law enforcement officer and supervisor, I have conducted countless of criminal investigations, some for unimaginable allegations.

On June of 2005, after my retirement, I moved to Puerto Rico with my family where my wife and my daughter faced extraordinary experiences with extraterrestrials. These alien encounters, subsequent abductions of my wife and the lack of help from so-called, "ufologists" here on the island, prompted me to become involved in the field of ufology and in the need to help others who have had similar experiences.


PRUFON, Puerto Rico UFO Network, Inc., is a nonprofit organization which conducts serious no nonsense UFO investigations. Our aim is to find the truth and answers to some of the toughest questions pertaining to UFO sightings, alien encounters and alien abductions, etc. We are not affiliated with any other ufology organization in Puerto Rico or in the world. PRUFON was founded in the city of Aguadilla, Puerto Rico on September of 2009 to share with the public what we have accomplished and researched in the related fields of ufology.

This internet network (PRUFON.com) offers a different perspective on life, and works hard to keep you informed about unexplained phenomena occurring on the island of Puerto Rico and in the Caribbean. We collect and gather information dealing with the Unidentified Flying Objects (UFOs) and other unusual events that the mainstream news media and science fail to expose to the public, fail to study or acknowledge.

Any unusual encounter or sighting that you have had and wish an investigation and/or wish to publish it on this website, contact PRUFON at prufon@gmail.com. You will remain anonymous if you state it in writing.
