Alleged Chupacabra corpse found in Texas


news.mongabay.com

An alleged chupacabra carcass found in Texas is likely a hoax to sell T-shirts say dog experts.

The animal, described in an Associated Press report last week as "a cross between two or three different things", was found as road kill last month near the Texas town of Cuero. The woman who discovered the carcass has been using it to market chupacabra T-shirts.

In lively Internet discussions dog breeders say the carcass appears to be that of a Xoloitzcuintle or Xolo, otherwise known as a Mexican Hairless dog, rather than the blood-sucking creature of legend.

"The overwhelming consensus on the Xolo discussion list -- which includes several hundred people -- is that this animal is a Xolo," said a top dog breeder who declined to be identified. "The dog looks like it has Xolo genetics. This is not a chupacabra -- that's absurd."

Mexican goat-sucker or Xolo breed dog. Personally if somebody had told me they had a Xolo dog I would be more inclined to believe they were crazy than if they claimed to have a Chupacabra, having never heard of the Xolo before I would assume it was another Southern American mythical beast.

Reguardless of that here is the story and some pics, have fun making up your own mind, I have no idea what a Chupacabra is supposed to look like myself...
