Chupacabras (around the world)
Hairless dog-like creatures that are believed to drain blood from livestock have been reported around the world. These creatures have been called 'chupacabras,' a name borrowed from a Puerto Rican monster... but they are most definitely not the same beast!

Monster H&T: Chupacabras around the World
When reports of the Puerto Rican monster called the "Chupacabras" reached the outside world, it sold newspapers, t-shirts, games: heck, the weirdest (and worst) episode of The X-Files included a messed up version of the stories. So it probably shouldn't have come as a surprise when newspapers worldwide found something else to call a 'chupacabras' when reports of the original monster started to stop... by that point, the very word 'chupacabras' could sell news stories, and no one was going to let that end!
