Reports of blue, hairless creatures roaming the countryside from Elmendorf to Cuero. Ranchers talking of livestock being drained of blood.

Put the two together, and it sounds like the legend of the chupacabra. One rancher says she has the evidence to back it up.

KENS 5 News Article


This story is from the San Antonio, Texas area.
Locals say chupacabra, Texas Parks and Wildlife say the animal is a sickly gray fox with a typical case of parasites. Guess the DNA testing will tell all.

More details in the article.

There was a story done on the news last night. It was hard to really see much in the video. It looked pretty ugly. Guess getting hit by a truck doesn't help the cause.

Thought it was funny the lady rancher was going to mount the head and hang it on her wall.

Here you go...



Reminds you of a "Chupacabra" you've seen before?

Bring in the previous Chupacabras please...

Elmendorf


ATS Discussion

Hmmm... Some DNA results from the Elmendorf Creature showed that the beast was in fact a Coyote (add some mange for good measure), but some people weren't happy with the DNA results...

"Funny" how these beasts pop up during the hottest time of the year - mange season.

Either a coyote or a grey fox with horrible mange. I'm sure that the rancher is making of the story of it sucking the blood from her hens. If so...why didn't she save one in the freezer and send it off to be evaluated?

Those pics make me feel very sad. What a shame for that poor animal.

Yeah, I think this one, may be the other one, was found in Lufkin,Texas, about forty miles from where I am from originally.. I don't remember what they wound up saying it was, but it's not a chupacabra.

When are people going to give up on this ridiculous chupacabra thing?

Flash! There is no such animal! Foxes, Coyotes, etc...with mange.

i thought the chupacabra were mainly in puerto rico. i drew a tattoo design for an old friend of mine from puerto rico with a chupacabra tearing through the flag.

I think those are pictures of chinese crested dogs.

While I see the similarity, that dog is an exception. It suffered a variety of skin conditions in addition to its inherent ugliness.

I think DNA analysis was done on the first 'chupacabras' and it was concluded they were a normal, mundane species afflicted with mange.

Yep, just an ugly dog with a bad case of mange. Killing it was probably for the best. Not only was it put out of its' misery, the critter would no longer have the chance to infect another animal with whatever disease it had.

But how could someone mistake this thing with a chupacabra? Chupas walk on their hind legs, have alien grey eyes and have bat-like membranes between their arms & torsos.

At least, that what witnesses say...

I have heard of a species of hairless diving dog native to Mexico and the Southern US coastal areas. It is suposed to be semi aquatic and live mostly of fish. Could this be one?

Mostly I hear that chupacabra are from Mexico but, before I came to ATS and saw a documentary of chupacabra, I had originally read another story about chupacabra from Europe. When I came here to ATS I was surprised that everyone said they where from Mexico. Is the European story the same or different. Can some one clear this up for me?

FYI

Chinese Cresteds are specifically known for their skin problems. I own a crested but it is a powderpuff (crested with hair)

There is two types of cresteds, ones with hair and ones without. The ones without have to be babied specifically because of there skin. IE:sunblock while they are outside, chemical free shampoos, and have to be lotioned.

The reason for me typing this is to explain that the supposed chupacabra in question could be a crested that was not babied and takin care of properly.

Try a google search on chinese cresteds and you can see some very strange looking dogs. Some like the pics I posted above, some that look like mini horses, and some that look like hair balls.
