Texas Woman Claims to Have Found Mythical 'Chupacabra'


www.foxnews.com

"It is one ugly creature," Canion said, holding the head of the mammal, which has big ears, large fanged teeth and grayish-blue, mostly hairless skin.

Canion and some of her neighbors discovered the 40-pound bodies of three of the animals over four days in July outside her ranch in Cuero, 80 miles southeast of San Antonio. Canion said she saved the head of the one she found so she can get to get to the bottom of its ancestry through DNA testing and then mount it for posterity.

I have found this article, with three photos.

It sure is a strange beast...

Its head resembles that of a hyena, at least to me.

 

This article has one more photo of the head.

And another article, this one more complete, from Earth Files.

Another from Coast to Coast, with bigger photos.

I'm sure I read something ages ago about a creature like this. The pictures there just look like a dog/wolf offspring though..

Haha she thinks that is a Chupacabra?

Can't she tell that's a Bigfoot?

Haven't we seen these before?

Aren't they coyotes with mange?
I'm sure a member will provide the threads this was discussed in.

Well, the front leg of the one looks like it has been broken, and the other front is curled as well, with the hind legs stretched out, to make them look longer than the front.
If you ask me, it is nothing but a Xoloitzcuintli, or Mexican Hairless Dog, a couple of them probably got loose. What clinches it for me, is this is a breed with known dentation issues, and they regularly have missing teeth, because something with the gene that causes hairlessness messes with the growth of the teeth, and n fact ALL hairless breeds that have that same hairless gene, (The American Hairless Terrier is the exception and any breed derived from the AHT.) has the same dentation issue.

It could also be a so called Kahla, (some made up designer fake breed to sucker people into getting the "new ancient" breed of dog. Check out the third pic..

And let's not forget about the Peruvian Inca Orchid dog.. No, I did not make that name up.

rarebreed.com...

WOW, that dog looks familiar.. I wonder where I have seen it before..

I find it also interesting that they found 3 dead. I wonder what killed them unless they were as some suggest not wild, but a hairless dog that most likely could not survive on their own.

I suppose this was the image you wanted to post, your link does not work (probably because of the ":").



This hairless dog also looks like the smaller "chupacabra" found before.

Looks like a dog to me. I love the tounge hanging out! I wont be surprised if this turns out to be a fake all done for publicity. They are already making money of it either way. Of course I always hope for an amazing discovery.

Take Care, Vix

Thanks ArMaP, that was the pic I wanted to post.
fweshcawfee.. that is a chinese crested, one of the hailess breeds that I mentioned with the dentation issues, and they can be some OOGLY effers, but they are a little on the small size..
Unless someone wants to hit one with a car, chop it's head off, and call it a mini chupa

Sigh. We see this year after year... Actually this is te second one in a month! I don't see why the News agencies keep running with it?! It's called mange... Out of all the cases one isn't suddenly going to be a "Chupacabra"...

Look - A month ago

That's a mangy or hairless dog, doubtless.

FalseParadigm, thanks for posting the link to the Peruvian Inca Orchid dog, that is frankly far more fascinating than the dead mutts. A very unusual and handsome breed.

Have you guys read this part of the news?


Chupacabra or not, the discovery has spawned a local and international craze. Canion has started selling T-shirts that read: "2007, The Summer of the Chupacabra, Cuero, Texas," accompanied by a caricature of the creature. The $5 shirts have gone all over the world, including Japan, Australia and Brunei.

Please visit the link provided for the complete story.


Hmmmm.... Me thinks this woman is just trying to sell T-shirts.

SOrry if this has been posted, but here's a video of most likely the same one you are talking about:

It just looks like some kind of canine.
