Has anybody seen TaRayZa recently? Was John in East Texas lately? If there's a Demodectic mange, do you get it from consorting with Democrats?

I heard on Coast to Coast the other night that the 2 found here in South Texas were coyotes with some sort of disease.

You should be spanked for excerpting an article from a source with that kind of bandwidth! Arrrrrrrgggh.

This "East Texas News" site must either be getting creamed with hits, or is on something like a dialup connection. SLOW!

It was described as a canine. Nothing more specific.

Reminded me of this creature.

I can't get into the site.
Were there pictures?
Their site may be getting slammed: "16 replies · 682+ views "

No pictures. I'd google the term "strange animal" or "unidentifed animal" to get one. It's VERY odd looking.

Bandwith on this site is minimal, site must be driven by a 386 or something.

Sorry bout that, FREEPers.

Certain wildlife officials said it was a coyote, albeit "coyote ugly" (my quotes, not theirs).

LOL

Did you ever notice that, on that show, the salt shaker talked, the mailbox talked, the side-table drawer talked... but the eponymous Blue — no speakee.

Odd.

Is it my imagination, or does this article give a conclusion with no new information?

Yeah, that was my impression, too.

How far from there to Roswell?? Texas is a big state.

Well, she did make a cute little semi-barking noise, but only Steve understood her. Kind of like Klingon as spoken by a Smurf...

And for that matter, no one ever disciplines Blue for getting his (her?) paw-prints all over the carpet, house, walls, etc etc etc.

And what's up with Mickey Mouse? He keeps a pet that's a deaf-and-dumb member of the same species as one of his best friends...

LOL.

Now, as to Goofy: his species is the subject of some extended, enlightened debate in "The Body"/"Stand by Me," as I recall. "If Mickey was a mouse, Donald was a duck and Pluto a dog...what's Goofy?"

Thank you.

The classic picture of a coyote with Demodectic (rat)mange.

"The real story here is how excited people got over a coyote with mange," said Dr. Wright.

Typically moronic debunking comment.
