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.

I guess now TMZ is beyond scraping the bottom of the barrel for stories. They are digging in the garbage cans of Globe and News of the World. Looking forward to an update on Batboy and the Abominable Snowman.EXCLUSIVE!!!!!!!!

It ain't no Chupacabra but it ain't no canine. Foxes, Coyotes, wolves and dogs don't eat with their front hands like that. That's something you see in racoons, possums, squirrels, etc. I'm going with Raccoon with mange. poor baby whatever it is... it should be taken to a wild life rehab center, treated for mange and whatever parasites it may have... then re-released into the wild once healthy

"...eats livestock and is known to drink their blood."

I believe that was Rick Perry's high school yearbook description.

That animal biologist guy needs his degree revoked. What canine (like a fox, coyote, wolf, dog) do you find in a tree, that eats with its front paws while resting on its haunches that is that small? It's OBVIOUSLY a coon!! poor lil' guy. He needs to be at a wildlife rescue! And yes... Raccoons DO sound like that when pissed off!
