It’s time for another article on my ongoing series of experiences and encounters with so-called whistleblowers. This one is without doubt one of the strangest of all. Now and again, I find myself on the receiving end of a conspiratorial story that is so unbelievable, so downright bizarre, and so utterly implausible that I actually wish it could be true, even though it isn’t. Well…it probably isn’t. Or is it? I still can’t be sure. In terms of the chupacabra, I was in just such a position in September 2013. That was when, on the 3rd of the month, I received the first of around twenty emails from a man I’ll call Ed. It transpires that Ed – who lived in Utah, and who claimed to work at the ultra-secret Dugway Proving Ground – had seen a 2004 episode of the SyFy Channel’s Proof Positive series on the Chupacabra of Puerto Rico. The SyFy Channel crew followed me around the island for slightly more than a week, as I sought out the truth of the so-called Goat-Sucker. Ed said he could tell me exactly what the chupacabras were. And so, I said words to the effect of: “Please tell me.” He certainly did that and much more, besides.
