On Tuesday, December 20, 2011, a 37-year-old man from Canada revealed video and photos taken in Obatanga Provincial Park, Ontario that seem to show images of the elusive chupacabra. Although the man doesn't mention the chupacabra by name in his description of the creature, he does use the term as one of the tags on the video that he posted to YouTube.
According to the man's description on philysteak's Channel:
"While camping in Obatanga Provicial Park, At 2:00 am I heard this strange noise outside my tent. When I went out to investigate what was I saw this unusual fox like creature. Having really no idea what it was I decided to film it. I realized that it was extremely dark and my camera might not be able to pick up the light. I decided to follow it into the forrest and get some pictures. When I got home I checked out the pictures and compare them to other pictures of foxes and though there are similarities I'm still not sure this was a fox."
Although it's tempting to dismiss the images of this mysterious creature as more fox than chupacabra, a quick search of foxes failed to turn up anything that resembled the animal caught on camera in Canada. Perhaps anticipating the viewers' need to compare the creature to an actual fox, the witness includes photographs of two foxes at the end of the video. One is a photo of a red fox. The other is a photo of a fox with mange. Neither picture matches the appearance of the mystery animal. This just might be a chupacabra after all.

Looks like a Fox with mange.
Like all chupacabras, it is a fox with sarcoptic mange. It’s heavily infested with parasites and is going to die soon.
Some of them are dogs with mange.
I don’t think it looks like it has mange. I think it just looks like a partial melanistic red fox...half way between black and regular red color.
Looks like the same creature to me...a fox, with mange.
People don’t take into account that individual animals can look as different from each other, as individual human beings...there’s just lots of variances.
I recall being in a deer-butcher shop once—where the owner had 7 or 8 dear heads mounted on the wall. Each one—besides the antlers (which were all VERY different—some thick, thin, textured, smooth, many points, few, etc.) had very different faces, noses longer or shorter or wider, more angular, etc. etc., exactly the kind of variances you find in humans.
It was very interesting...as before that, I just thought a deer was a deer, some with large racks, some not, and that’s all, not any differences other than that. However, there were a LOT of small but recognizable differences in how each one looked.
Calling the SyFy Channel.
Scientifically applied, computerized measurements of distances from pupil to nostril and earlobe to poup-crease show this definitively to be a beaver with gout, and dropsy. These findings have been confirmed by the same U.K. University that proved Global Warming, and has been written about extensively in several "peer-reviewed" journals.
So come the hell down off your high horse! This isn't about you, dammit! Acting all "knowity" and such...
To me, it looks like an emaciated fox with mange.
Besides, I though the chupacabra lived in Mexico.
Most assuredly a fox.
See wikipedia entry for “gray fox.” There’s a photo there, looks very similar.
