In 1954, the North Carolina town of Blandenboro received national attention after several mysterious animal killings, mostly of dogs and livestock. The animals' jaws had been broken and had been drained of blood in a fashion not unlike the attacks of Chupacabra. The community was rattled and after a few years, the reports stopped, and the beast's activity ceased, making locals think the creature was gone. However, in 2003, the reports returned and the beast was said to come back. It killed pitbulls more than any other creature and captivated the interest of many people. Recent photographic evidence showed that the beast could have been a cougar, but further research reported that cougars did not live in the area. Even today, the Legend of The Blandenboro Beast is told to many.
