Vigenere Varmints

Difficulty: Advanced
Part of the SummerGame2014 Game

This time our cryptid is a recent one, and it seems like the only way to track him down is with a rather old but clever code. We're going to use the Vigenere Cipher on this one, first described, oddly enough, not by Blaise de Vigenere but by Giovan Battista Bellaso back in the 16th century. But in order to have a Vigenere Cipher, we need a keyword, so we might as well use the name of the varmint in question. Find the name of this creature in the catalog who is known (and named for) his tendency to suck blood from goats!
