Chupacabra: Blood-Sucking Mythical Beast 'Found in Texas'
The Telegraph ^

Posted on 09/03/2009 2:33:37 AM PDT by nickcarraway

Two men in Texas believe they may have discovered the body of a chupacabra – a mythical beast rumoured to suck all the blood out of its prey.

Published: 9:18AM BST 03 Sep 2009

Lynn Butler, a taxidermist, says that he found the mystery creature's corpse in a chicken barn three months ago, the morning after an unseen predator was heard running amock.

While its hairless, leathery body and pointed muzzle resemble a dog with severe mange, other animal eerts who have inspected the corpse have suggested it may be a chupacabra, a predator first sighted in Puerto Rico in 1995;.

It’s an abused and burnt Doberman Pinscher. Just ask Michael Vick.

It reminds me of Pelosi and Reid’s love child - could easily run for office later - should be put down forthwith.

"Chupacabra" is a spanish word for "Congress".

Is this story ever going to go away? Coyote’s so infested with mange that they become completely hairless is not uncommon in South TX. They’ve been caught on game camera’s, caught on police dash cam’s, video’d by hunters, shot, run over yet everyone is claimed to be the mythical Chupacabra, and that’s profiling and we real Chupacabra’s take offence!!

Interestingly, this myth only occurs when there is a populace of superstitious illegal aliens nearby. It's kinda like when I go into a supermarket and there is an entire aisle devoted to tortillas: It's an indicator of the overall demographic.

Advanced western society has little time for this nonsense.

It's a Xolo. People don't realize that they come in larger sizes.

Chupacabras? Bah! Here in Wisconsin we have a supposedly “mythical” creature called the Hodag. A vicious beast is he. Don’t get too close or YOU MIGHT GET EATEN UP!!! No, I mean it! I’m not kidding.

I thought this was the same paper but it's not. The other article was from the daily telegraph. I pinged the group on this thread.

The UK’s government educational system must be going down hill faster than ours. We call that “unidentified mystery creature” a “dog”.

Dang. The Yahoo headline led me to believe they’d actually caught one alive.

Yes, it’s odd since they are so rare, wonder if there is a *breeder* somewhere in the area?

If so seems he getting some distribution

By Lynn Winthrop

Associated Press 10/12/2004
LUFKIN, Texas -- Local animal experts are having a hard time identifying a strange looking animal killed in Angelina County on Friday -- an animal that looks eerily similar to the as yet unidentified "Elmendorf Beast" killed near San Antonio earlier this year.

ELMENDORF — Forget the chupacabra.

Those mysterious beasts that have been spotted in Texas have nothing to do with the monster of Puerto Rican folklore.

The strange animals are merely common coyotes inflicted with bad cases of mange — very bad cases, according to a Lubbock professor who has spent nearly 20 years studying the skin disease.

The only thing the chupacabra and these sickly coyotes have in common is their horrendous hides.

"We looked at it, and of course it's a mange coyote," said Danny Pence, a professor of parasitology at Texas Tech University Health Sciences Center in Lubbock. "There's no doubt in our minds whatsoever." end snip

I don’t know how prevalent they are in Mexico, but I’m sure that’s where they’re coming from. Darn illegal immigrant dogs. :-)

yeah, I’ve been following this story for quite some time. BTW I did a google search for Xolo breeders in TX and immediately came up with 2, one in Brownsville and one in Dale (which is not that far from San Antonio.

Look at the head of the animal in this photo on the following thread from a few days ago.

If one exists, a population of them must exist. Why do we only find dead ones, and why when we find dead ones are they always dogs with severe mange?

You know that a certain number of those tortillas are going to have a picture of the Virgin Mary on them as well.
