Chupacabras in D.C.?

Chupacabras in D.C. Suburbs?

Prince George’s Hospital Center workers have adopted a mythical creature as their new mascot.The creature has been spotted in the woods where smokers take breaks since the hospital banned smoking June 1, but no one knows what the animal is, so they’ve named it Prince Chupa, after chupacabra – the legendary cryptid rumored to exist in parts of the Americas and suck the blood of livestock.“It’s a kangaroo, dog, rat mixed,” X-ray technician Joe Livermore said. “It’s got a rat tail and a head like a deer. I don’t know what it is.”People started taking cell phone pictures of the animal and showing them around, but no one knows what it is.“So we decided to trap it,” Livermore said.

Looks like another poor hairless dog to me. Shouldn’t the appearance of more hairless animals be sounding alarm bells with the ecology and wildlife people?
