Vampire On The Loose in Texas

One might think that Texas would be a terrible place for vampires to live. Not only are the days long and hot, but the wide open plains offer little in the way of shade or cover. Furthermore, the droughts that are currently plaguing the southwest bring with them the possibility of wildfires, and if there's anything vampires hate more than the sun it would have to be fire. Nonetheless, according to this report from Corpus Christi, a vampire appears to be on the loose in the area.

A 16-year-old boy was walking along Shoreline Boulevard in Corpus Christi near Corpus Christi Bay Wednesday night, according to Texas radio station 1200 WOAI, when he bumped into a man by accident.

What should have been a harmless misunderstanding then took a turn for the weird -- and perhaps the vampiric? -- when the man turned around and bit the boy on his neck, according to the radio station.

Police became involved, and Senior Police Officer Julia Hernandez-Garcia told WOAI that the boy's mother took him to the hospital with minor injuries.

"Apparently he left a bite mark and broke the skin and took some skin off," Hernandez-Garcia told WOAI. "This is a very unusual case ... I've been here for 27 years and I've never heard of anything like this."

The Colorado roadway vampire spotted back in 2010 is not known to have attacked anyone; it just stood in the middle of the road and caused a traffic accident. This Corpus Christi vampire, on the other hand, appears to be more aggressive. It sounds like the folks down in Texas need to break out the wooden stakes and get to work before the creature can feed again. Also, residents need to keep in mind that even though Texans tend to be well-armed, everyone knows that vampires are immune to bullets.
