Is the legendary "goat sucker" stalking Hood County? Two strange, coyote-like creatures have been killed with in 10 miles of each other, and locals say the animals could be chupacabras.
Hood County Animal Control Officer Frank Hackett killed the first creature last week. He found it in an old barn. When it growled at him, he put the animal down. "It was ugly, real ugly, I'm not going to tell no lie on that one," he said.
A few days later, a rancher killed a similar creature. Jack Farr, who owns the property where the first coyote-canine-cross was spotted said he thinks more of the strange animals are out there.
"I have heard of a chupacabra before, but I thought it was some sort of mythological thing," he said.
But after seeing firsthand the creature killed on his property, he doesn't know what it was.
"I've seen deer and coyotes," he said. "This had deer ears, big teeth and pinkish skin like nothing I've ever seen before."
Hood County Animal Control sent the animal to Texas A&M for testing. Until DNA tests are returned Doctors at Texas A&M would only say it's some kind of coyote hybrid. When asked if it could be the legendary and very elusive El Chupacabra, Hacket said, "I don't know about that one. I'm going to wait for the facts to come in. All I know is, it wasn't normal."
Poochacabra, dog of legend.
They’re coming here to do the jobs American coyotes won’t do.
Canine, with severe demodectic mange.
It’s the MISSING LINK in the chain between vertebrates with hair, and vertebrates with no hair.
Poochacabras are just the latest trendy crossbreed.
Now there's a shot for the family album.
That is my thought.
One of these was found near San Antonio. Testing did determine it was a coyote with mange. Suspect these will be too.
I blame global warming. In the old days, silly season didn’t start until August.
With possibly some of the odder ones turning out to have some domestic dog DNA as well.
It needs to be in black & white
Woman Accused Of Naked Dog Wrestling
Friend Says Woman Has Been Acting Strangely Recently
UPDATED: 11:42 am EST March 4, 2005
GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. — A 40-year-old woman described as a transient was jailed in Grand Junction — accused of jumping a fence to wrestle naked with a dog.
An arrest affidavit indicated that Katherine Earle scaled the four-foot fence just before midnight Tuesday, then stripped in order to wrestle with the male Labrador retriever-blue heeler mix.
Residents of the home awoke from the noise and called police.
Responding officers said Earle told them she was having sex with the dog, and that she does it all the time. The dog’s owner, Six Starr, said that Earle has been friendly with the dog, but that Earle has been acting strangely for the past six months.
Looks like barbecue time?
Uh...yeah, that's what she was doing. “Wrestling”...
