The chupacabra has been an intriguing urban legend for decades, but one man said he spotted something like it and got pictures of it.
Jack Crabtree said he and a friend spotted the strange looking creature outside his Lake Jackson home on July 4. "He said, 'That's the strangest dog I've ever seen,'" Crabtree said. "I immediately said, 'That's not a dog, it's a chupacabra.'"
Crabtree said he's heard of the chupacabra as a mysterious creature with a scary look.
The word "chupacabra" means "goat blood sucker" in Spanish. It was given that name for its reported habit of attacking and sucking the blood of livestock, mainly goats.
Crabtree said what he saw was ugly, skinny and gray. "Most prominent feature was his ears," he said. "I can see why people would conjure up myths and horror stories associated with something that has that appearance." Crabtree said he and his wife think what he saw was probably just a sick animal.
"It was a coyote, a coyote that has mange," Crabtree said. "An extremely severe case and has lost all it's hair."
Crabtree has set up a live trap to try to catch the animal and figure out exactly what it is.
Oh, look . . . someone got a photo of a skinny, mangy dog.
>>Probably a Chalupacabra..<<
I won’t insult anyone by saying I am “literally” ROTFLOL!
But this is as close as I have ever been!! I am holding my sides in pain from laughter if that helps...
I almost got a freaking nosebleed!
the last chupacabre in america flew to the
phillipines with art bell.
that dog isn’t half as skinny as the news girl reporting on it
It was good, but it wasn’t THAT funny. I’ve seen Joe do far better!
Prolly Lady Geegaw.
I GOTTA GET ONE OF THOSE FOR MY CHIHUAHUA!......
This is getting downright boring.
It’s always a coyote in the final stages of terminal mange.
>>It was good, but it wasnt THAT funny. Ive seen Joe do far better!<<
Just one of them funny bone things. I still can’t stop laughing.
I can’t s’plain it, but it is killing me.
>>Its always a coyote in the final stages of terminal mange.<<
Interestingly, so was my ex-wife.
And what does a human being with mange look like anyways?
Jeez, set myself up for that one...
>>Jeez, set myself up for that one...<<
And everyone else pays!
Life is cruel ;)
I reckon they’ve never heard of mange down that way...
They mentioned this on Channel 2 news last night. I was embarrassed for them, how stupid.
