Chupacabra is one of those "monster" stories along the lines of Bigfoot, Mothman, Loch Ness Monster, etc etc. People report seeing them but nobody ever has evidence. These guys are claiming that this strange creature they found maybe the chupacabra so famously talked about.

Very strange animal, I've never heard of it before. Like you, TJ, I think it's a dog of some sort, a hybred.

Ok the video played correctly this time. It's a dog, that's clear for any sane person to see.

Just a hairless canid nothing more. Poor thing was probably diseased, I'm sure the taxidermist knows that.

Looks like some unfortunate whippet has been given the 'Jamie Oliver' scorch, all for the sake of publicity.

Hi TJ

Bizzare to look at. It looks like it has had a 'bout of serious mange, and lost all of its coat.

Certainly has brought out the news team to have a good look at the animal. Did not like it when one of the men said they would like to keep it for a talking point. Yuk!

Thank you for drawing this to our attention - an eye opener that it is too.

Reminds me of a 'monster' in a Stephen King' novel. Like those books! Lots of 'creepy feelings' got from reading all these type of stories.

Hi TJ

Thinking the same way. There was mention of the legs of the animals not of the same length. The front legs are shorter than the back legs!

Makes you wonder what it could be?

I'm down for ranging up a huge search party and putting this stories to bed once and for all. Let's find each and every last "monster" out there

yea, its weird. I dont know why the chubacapra is known as Paranormal but i dont think its the same thing as this canine.. because if you look on the iternet the chubacapra is sometimes known to be a little bit humanoid with a sucker on the front of its face and a Hunger for sheep...

This Dogish thing was seen in Texas right? i heard the legend started in Mexico hundreds of years ago when people found there sheep drained of blood with a wierd sucker mark, Plus the canine is very plausable but the human like goat sucker isnt. I just think this a type of unknown ( very rare ) coyote. Any way very interesting.
