Geocache Description:





[PT]

É conhecido que desde 1960 têm aparecido vários animais mortos de forma misteriosa na América do Sul e América Central. As vítimas eram preferencialmente gado doméstico que aparecia com dentadas no pescoço e completamente sem sangue. Rumores falam que tais ataques eram perpetrados por uma criatura que algumas testemunhas descreveram como reptiliana, talvez até mesmo de origem alienigena.

Desde a viragem do milénio que não existem grandes notícias de ataques. O que será que aconteceu à criatura? Morreu? Fugiu para outro planeta? Tornou-se vegetariana? Ninguém sabe. Talvez "ninguém" seja um termo incorrecto, visto que há não muito tempo atrás um amigo da prima da minha colega do curso de "Cure-se do Geocaching em 100 dias... ou não" ouviu que dois amigos escaladores, que costumavam ir praticar para uma falha geológica perdida perto da Marina de Albufeira depararam-se com um cenário macabro: vários cadáveres de cabras que apresentavam marcas de dentadas no pescoço, bem ao estilo vampiresco.

Será que o Chupacabras mudou-se de armas e bagagens para Portugal? É também dito que a criatura guarda no seu covil um tesouro valiosissimo, composto por brinquedos do Happy Meal, Travel Bugs e Geocoins. Cabe-vos a vós, quais Fox Mulders ou Dana Sculis, investigar esta situação e, quem sabe, resgatar o tesouro. Sentem-se preparados?

Boa sorte!


[EN]

It is known that since 1960 several animals have appeared dead on a mysterious way in South and Central America. The victims were mainly domestic livestock which appeared with bites in the neck and completely bloodless. Rumours say that such attacks were made by a creature that some witnesses described as reptilian, perhaps even of alien origin.

Since the turn of the millennium that there are no reports of major attacks. What happened to that creature? Did it died? Escaped into another planet? Has become vegetarian? Nobody knows. Maybe "nobody" is an incorrect term, since not too long ago a friend of the cousin of my course of "Cure yourself from the Geocaching in 100 days ... or not" colleague heard that two of his climber friends, who used to go practicing on a lost geological fault near the Marina de Albufeira have run into a macabre scene: bodies of several goats that had marks of bites in the neck, well like as the vampires style.

Does the Chupacabras moved up with arms and baggage for Portugal? It also said that the creature keep in its custody a valuable treasure, made up of Happy Meal toys, Travel Bugs and Geocoins. It is up to you, like Fox Mulder or Dana Sculli, to investigate this situation and, who knows, rescue the treasure. Do you feel prepared?

Good luck!
