Frequently, grazing horses are found in the Argentine, in the morning, with their shoulders covered with blood, where vampires vampires have been sucking, and a Dr. Blythe tells how one farmer had to give up raising chickens and another pigs because they were sucked to death oy vampire bats. The true vampire bat is confined c clusively to South American and tropical countries. The bats of the United States never attack either animals or human beings. In the United States there is a huge sucking bat, sometimes called a vampire, vampire, but which is known to science as the "false vampire," because it is harmless and lives entirely by sucking the juice of fruits. In countries where there are real vampires, vampires, it has been a source of mystery why people did not awaken when attacked. - Popular superstition has attributed it to magic or to the idea that some insidious , sleep - producing poison was injected by the creature.
