A fearsome, mythical bloodsucking beast known as ‘Chupacabra’ has allegedly been shot dead by hunters.

The demon-like creature is said to drink the blood of livestock, terrorising local farmers and agricultural workers.

However, a group of men claim to have gunned down the mysterious beast in a forest.

They filmed what they say is the deceased Chupacabra, whose name translates to ‘Goat-Sucker’.

It happened in the woods in Guia Lopes da Laguna, west of São Paulo, Brazil.

In the video, one of the hunters explains that they came across the vampiric creature while hunting wild boar on the edge of town.

The dead beast has human-like hands and is roughly the size of a large monkey.
