Unusual Animal Makes World Premiere


SOURCE PAGE


Last week a most unusual animal made its world premiere in an equally strange museum in the small town of Phoenix, New York. The mounted and stuffed beast is claimed to be the elusive chupacabra (the vampiric "goat sucker" of Hispanic folklore), and is on display for an exclusive engagement through Halloween at the Lost World Museum, run by real estate agent John Adolfi.



Adolfi's chupacabra was found thousands of miles away in Blanco, Texas, in August. A local man presented the dead animal (half jokingly) as a chupacabra to a taxidermist named Jerry Ayer. It had been attacking chickens a few days earlier, and succumbed to poison left as bait. The canid creature weighed about 80 pounds and resembled a coyote or dog. But its front legs were a few inches longer than most coyotes', and it was mostly hairless except for around the feet and along its backbone. The news got out, and soon the taxidermy school where Ayer works was getting 100 calls a day from people all over the world inquiring about his mysterious carcass. Ayer had planned to display the creature as a conversation piece, or in a museum, but soon realized that the publicity would not go away until he was rid of the chupacabra. It was soon sold to Mr. Adolfi, destined for a place in the spotlight at his museum.


Thoughts?

To me, it still looks like a starved possibly crossbreed canine. The lack of fur almost looks as if it has been cross breed with a Chinese-Crested terrier, they can look rather "beasty"


The skin of the animal also shows signs that it may have possibly had mange.

Looks like a mangy coyote to me. Those things get pretty ugly when they lose their fur and their skin gets diseased.

Like the others all I see is a dog.

What happened to the four foot bipedal scaly green gremlin-like chupacabra people used to see? Now-a-days all we get are poor starving canines with mange. Then again I suppose the appearance of the creature has fluctuated quite a bit making it kind of hard to pin down an conclusive identification.

I think they already discussed this one at cryptomundo.

If the chupacabra would really exist it wouldn't look close to this.

I see a dog. I don't see anything that even remotely looks like any description of a chupacabra, except that it has teeth.

Why is this even interesting?

Just in case you didn't know, that's the winner of the Ugliest Dog Competition they had a while back. Yeah, you see why it one, but it still deserves a hug cause it's not mean just different.

Yeah I don't buy it either....

I took this discription right from Wikipedia

The most common description of Chupacabra is a reptile-like being, appearing to have leathery or scaly greenish-gray skin and sharp spines or quills running down its back.[20] This form stands approximately 3 to 4 feet (1 to 1.2 m) high, and stands and hops in a similar fashion to a kangaroo.[21] In at least one sighting, the creature was reported to hop 20 feet (6 m). This variety is said to have a dog or panther-like nose and face, a forked tongue, and large fangs. It is said to hiss and screech when alarmed, as well as leave behind a sulfuric stench.[21] When it screeches, some reports assert that the chupacabra's eyes glow an unusual red which gives the witnesses nausea.


Now this what I've been taught a Chupacabra is... the stories always told of them making remarkable leaps into the air... granted dogs can be good jumpers but I've never heard of any dog that could hop from the ground to a roof top without a running start... Sorry just another ugly dog story to me..

the original chupacabra was/is green, lizard like with glowing red eyes,and a long tongue. It was really defined by its way of killing.It would puncture the neck and insert some sort of tube that intelligently maneuvered the anatomy of whatever animal it was ingesting (and there are different types) in order to find the vital? organs, liquefy them and "suck" them up,hence the name.I don't know when it became an obvious K-9 with no capability of this type of feeding,but I don't consider them "chupacabra"I want to here more about the original/real one.

I never pictured a chupacabra to look dog-like. I thought a chupacabra would be 3 to 4 foot tall scaly maybe green creature that stands on 2 legs, very nimble, big teeth and so on. If chupacabra was a ugly dog then we would have lots of chupacabras out in the world

The show about Chupacabras in New York is a surprisingly neat idea.
Problem is this-the alleged Chupacabra on display is not a Chupacabra-it is a dog.

I saw a Chupacabra in 2008 and did some research on my own.
The are not small creatures.
Chupacabras definitely do not have dog feet.
The face is wrong-should be a long face.

The other features are not right either.
It's a shame that more people are not aware of this.
I think the popular news version of this creature has made people think that a Chupacabra is nothing more than a dog.

It's far from that.
