I just think that is a type of dog. An ugly, mangy, vicious looking dog, but a dog nevertheless.

One would think that with a story such as this, they would display a number of photos showing the animal in its entirety.........no such luck.

With that being said, it's a canine of some sort........

I have fought with Chupacabras in hand to hand combat many a time, and this is not one of them critters.

There’s a lady in Texas who killed one and had it stuffed. She’s an professional in animal husbandry (runs a ranch of some sort).

Well, she had blood and tissue samples from the thing run through the diagnostic mill at some scientific labs, and the DNA profile came back as ‘unknown’.

Folks can call these things ‘mangy coyotes’ all they want, but there’s no explaining the Texas case.

It’s a mangy coyote. I saw one in south Texas a few years ago, it was half coyote, half bare naked mangy coyote. Meaning it had not lost ALL it’s hair yet but it was close.

Agreed. I’ve seen coyotes that had very little hair. The comment about the nails was ridiculous. That’s a coyote.

Nick, this is one more reason why we in Maine will be eternally grateful to Mississippi,the state that traditionally kept us from being the poorest state in the Union! Now, the selfless citizens of that great state are defending us from ravenous, chicken-stealing, goat sucking Chupacabras!

We were so moved by this event that we are currently raising funds to equip every Chupacabra in Mississippi with a warm coat for the winter. We also plan to indemnify every illegal Mexican in Mississippi who has lost a hairless pet to evidently well-meaning, but inadvertently tragic species mis-identification.

I am also sure that when this Syrian thing is resolved, those chemical weapons will be used by Obama and Reggie to meet the challenge of this bio-threat.

Here’s a little info on the Texas animal from an article posted on 9-1-13

http://bionews-tx.com/news/2013/09/01/texas-state-university-researcher-helps-unravel-mystery-of-texas-blue-dog-claimed-to-be-chupacabra/

snip

However, quickly it became clear that the animal was not a dog when a genetic marker identified
it as a coyote. Forstner notes, “We got the sequences back, uniquely within coyote there’s
an area of the D-loop, which is the area of mitochondrial DNA… it gives us data on things that
are closely related… Uniquely in coyotes there’s a deletion of several bases in one section, and
another deletion in another area of an additional seven-base block. Turns out that the
sequences that came back had those two unique deletions, and did not match any dogs or wolf.
It came back with 97 percent confidence that it was Canis latrans, which is the coyote.”

Canion was not happy with the results,
so she commissioned a second DNA test at a genetics lab st the University of California at Davis.
Essentially, the new test confirmed the findings from the University of Texas.

However, with a slight twist: Canion’s animal turned out to be a hybrid.

The Chupacabra is Puerto Rican.


Wrong. It is a Mexican legend. As an example if you catch the Bonanza episode fron 1959 or 1960 where Hoss and Little Joe go to Mexico to buy a bull, there is a segment where the vaqueros are talking to the Cartwrights about chupacabras attacking their animals.

We may have just got our first Chupacabras in Mississippi but y’all have had an infestation of Bigfoots in Maine for a long time.

Mind your snippy replies, Rebel!

If the 20th Maine has to come down there to sort out this Chupacabra situation, we certainly shall. We have no "infestations" of any sort in Maine, beyond a settlement of many thousand trruculent polygamous 'refugee' Somali Border Bandits, to whom "y'all" are certainly welcome. Drop'em off, no charge.

BTW, our famous "Bigfoots" are a popular tourist attraction. We actually recruit and pay drunken Masshole visitors to dress up and act scary.
