They're appparantly some sort of coyote, either a new or previously unidentified species, or otherwise severly genetically compromised,
perhaps by inbreeding or ecological problems. They appear to have severe sarcoptic mange, various deformities, especially of the mouth and teeth, and,
allegedly, frail flesh that appears to be rotting or covered in sores.
I live roughly 100 miles from the named towns and saw a chupacabra on the way home from church last Sunday.
It looked like the one in the police video. I did not see wings or glowing eyes or anything of that sort. The only thing that made it look extremely
bizarre was the HUGE and weird head on it. Well, that and its back legs being longer than the front legs...it looked like a cross between a dog, a
boar, and a kangaroo.
It was startling enough that we (I was with my mother) stopped the car and got out and marked where we had seen it. It ran off into the woods (it had
been in the middle of the road, but ran/hopped off when we were about 25' from it.)
It wasn't a coyote.
