Stirges

Bat-like, blood-sucking pests, stirges are a threat in small numbers, and deadly in larger groups. A single stirge has an appetite more than sufficient to drain a goat, dog, or child of blood in a matter of seconds, leaving the creature stunned and bleeding from a hole punched by a sharp proboscis.

While they are considered foul, wretched creatures by most, they are simply a beast, and the horror of their feeding habits is nothing more than the actions of a creature attempting to survive.
