Chupacabra

Found in Texas

(Allegedly)

Chupacabra Found in Texas
Leave it to Texas … a family claims they have captured a Chupacabra in their own backyard … forgetting momentarily the creature DOES NOT EXIST.

According to legend, a Chupacabra eats livestock and is known to drink their blood. Local news interviewed the family at their home in a small town in South Texas, and the husband told KABC, "I hunted coons for 20 years with dogs and I ain't never seen nothing looks like that right there."

A wildlife expert guessed the creature was probably some kind of canine suffering from mange, though the creature in the video can be seen eating with its hands ... leading a lot of people to think it's some kind of raccoon.

In a related story, the Tooth Fairy is now interning at TMZ for the summer. She came to the office today on a unicorn and drinks water from the Holy Grail.

Either they found a diseased raccoon, or they shaved a raccoon and called it a chupacabra. As to wheter or not it exists, who really knows, there are new species of animals discovered all the time that we believed was merely a myth, anatomically improbable, or extinct. That being said it like Bigfoot sightings are more likely to be mass hysteria and ignorance.

Where is the animal control dept. when you need them. This poor animal will probably be abused and mistreated by the hillbilly that caught him and forced to live in that crappy cage the rest of his life. Why can't Jimmy Joe Bob just take his picture and set him free so he can live! It obviously isn't anything close to the mythical creature of the latin culture. It's either a poor little mal-nourished racoon or rat that lost it's fur and his barely surviving.

It's a myth that's been around forever. It's thought to be a mix of coyote and Mexican wolf

Wow ...    

Well there it is there folks, living proof - of a wild animal with mange. Good grief, why is it that the uneducated backwoods people are always the ones to find the myth based creatures, never a scientist?
