CUERO, Texas Phylis Canion lived in Africa for four years. She's been a hunter all her life and has the mounted heads of a zebra and other exotic animals in her house to prove it. But the roadkill she found last month outside her ranch was a new one even for her, worth putting in a freezer hidden from curious onlookers: Canion believes she may have the head of the mythical, bloodsucking chupacabra.
"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.
She suspects, as have many rural denizens over the years, that a chupacabra may have killed as many as 26 of her chickens in the past couple of years.
"I've seen a lot of nasty stuff. I've never seen anything like this," she said.
What tipped Canion to the possibility that this was no ugly coyote, but perhaps the vampire-like beast, is that the chickens weren't eaten or carried off all the blood was drained from them, she said.

Labor Day Weekend Friday Night:
That’s the coyote with mange, right?
So why does this hunter have no pictures?
Take a look at this!
Here’s a “Chupacabra” update (sort of), from a story published today in one newspaper in Puerto Rico:
“Twenty fighting cocks and 10 hens were killed in their cages at a dwelling in the Quebrada Arenas neighborhood [of the town of Toa Alta], which might be an attack of the almost vanished and forgotten ‘Chupacabra’.
“Police report that 47-year-old Carmelo Reyes Guzmán filed a complaint yesterday morning after finding the cages broken with the animals inside dead.
“’No blood was found at the scene,’ the police report reads, thus following the pattern of other cases attributed to the ‘Chupacabra’ during the last two decades. The birds’ owner estimated the loss from the deaths of the cocks and the hens at $2,000.”
