The Gargoyle

According to at least one source, there exists a creature in Puerto Rico that residents have dubbed "The Gargoyle." Depending upon whom you ask, the Gargoyle is either related to the Chupacabra or a large, winged "bird" with leathery, bat-like wings. Like the Chupacabra, the Gargoyle attacks mostly animals and drains them of blood. It is said to have attacked horses, cattle, and pets -- mainly cats and dogs -- and goes after healthy animals, as opposed to some other predators, which tend to attack weaker, feeble, or sickly prey.

The Gargoyle is said to live near the ruins of the old Guánica Sugar Mill, and local legend has it that it is within these catacombs that the skeletons of its victims can be found. However, few witnesses are willing to come forward, fearing their story will attract ridicule and scorn. However, at least one policeman and a school teacher who collects tales of the paranormal have gone on-record as to its existence.

Worse yet, the Gargoyle is said to have attacked a man in the 1990s.

Reports say the man "soberly" described a winged creature which set upon him in his backyard, raking his belly with talons so sharp they pierced the skin down to the fat. The policeman on record says he heard "the powerful beating of wings" some months back while patrolling with another policeman near the abandoned Guánica Sugar Mill. He says he saw nothing.

Some witnesses say the Gargoyle emits a powerful odor some have described as "sulphuric."
