(ChattahBox)—El Chupacabra, a mythical blood-sucking creature that is often referred to, as the Bigfoot of the Latino world, is apparently migrating to
and terrorizing ranchers with its pink-skinned and hairless hideousness. In recent days, two coyote-like creatures were killed in Texas , reviving the imaginations of believers in the Chupacabra legend. Is the creature half dog, half human? How about half dog, half coyote with a smidgen of alien DNA thrown in? Others believe the Chupacabra is a relative of the dinosaur. Whatever the origin of the creatures found in Hood County , one thing is agreed upon: it’s very, very ugly.According to a local report, Hood County Animal Control Officer Frank Hackett found the first Chupacabra skulking in a barn. “It was ugly, real ugly, I’m not going to tell no lie on that one,” he said.The second creature, killed by a rancher, was described as having “deer ears, big teeth and pinkish skin.”According to the Skeptics Dictionary, the legend of the Chupacabra began in Puerto Rico to explain a rash of animal mutilations plaguing the region:“The chupacabra (“goat sucker”) is an animal said to be unknown to science and systemically killing animals in places like Puerto Rico, Texas Miami, Nicaragua, Chile, and . The creature’s name originated with the discovery of some dead goats in Mexico Puerto Rico with puncture wounds in their necks and their blood allegedly drained. According to UFO Magazine (March/April 1996) there have been more than 2,000 reported cases of animal mutilations in Puerto Rico attributed to the chupacabra.”However, testing of the so-called Chupacabras have found the creatures to be wild dogs, or coyotes with a severe case of mange. But the legend of the terrifying goat-sucker lives on!
The two Chupacabra carcasses have been sent to Texas A&M for DNA testing.
