I was staying for five days at my grandpa's house in Mexico.
Everything was great; we all LOVED to sit around a good old camp fire and listed to one of our grandpa's collection of great ghost stories.
The third day of my stay, grandpa told us kids one about a horrible beast with fangs, goat horns, man face, red eyes, goat body, legs and arms like that of any other, regular man, but with hooves for fingers. I do remember that we were all extremely scared of it, and would obey any order if they threaten to call the creature if we didn't do so, then the adults would laugh their heads off after seeing us nearly pee ourselves when told it would come for us. What I don't remember is the creature's original name, but I have not forgotten that, based on what we kids were told that it looked like, we called it the "CABRAHOMBRE", meaning "GOATMAN" for those who do not know Spanish.
Eventually, my cousins and I forgot about the beast's existence, until one day, my grandpa's neighbor told us that his animals had all been killed, and obviously not by a fox or coyote, for an animal like that would've bitten the animals all over, while his dead animals had bite marks...well, kind of like two little holes, a bit separated somewhere in their necks and - they were completely drained. NO BLOOD. The beast even took on the dogs.
The last day of my stay, my cousins and I were dozing off in the living room, when we heard a heavy thing land hard on the roof. I and my oldest cousin told the others to stay inside. We grabbed our rifles, ready to shoot any old' thief streaking up on the house. We took out a flashlight and shone it at the wheat, where we saw the ugliest and most horrible thing - the "Cabrahombre"!
My cousin shone the flashlight at the beast, and I aimed and shot its leg three times in a row. The creature fell, and I thought that we could finally show the adults that the creature we were told about was real. WRONG! The thing struggled in the dirt and finally got up on it's...it's...feet? And jumped to the roof of the barn, then jumped off and disappeared.
