The legendary chupacabra has been spied, shot and killed -- will bigfoot be next?

A man in Kentucky found a strange, hairless creature prowling his front lawn December 18, a critter he believes to be the mythical chupacabra, a beast from Hispanic folklore supposedly known for attacking goats and other livestock (chupacabra means "goat sucker" in Spanish).

Didn’t they study the one that was shot earlier this year and it was a coydog with a mite that causes “chupacabra syndrome”

Everyone knows the chupacabra is native to Texas, New Mexico, and northern Mexico.

Once upon a time, while felling trees on a mountainside in NM with a rather hispanic crew, we heard some horrible, gawd-awful animal sound in the near distance (probably a love-sick elk, upon reflection). We all stopped what we were doing and looked around at each other...

I said one word. "Chupacabra". Everybody laughed and we got back to work. But there were lots of nervous glances over shoulders.

Living myths are fun to mess with, when dealing with a backwards population.

Given the current state of the economy. I see lots of dead squirrels (and biscuits and gravy). That isn't one. They don't have canines.

Good to know I'm not the only one with a warped sense of humor that gets GREAT pleasure out of those kind of things.

I once told a black guy, while I was checking for a radiation leak, that I used to be black until I got radiated.

The guy ran from the job and never came back.

"That is a mangy raccoon."

"I was thinking mangy possum."

The ears are all wrong for any known wild creature indigenous to the North American continent. That is no known species, and I have now seen 4 different instances where that animal has been found and photographed dead.

No 'coon, wolverine, fisher cat, pine martin or 'possum. No mangy coyote, porcupine or Eastern Red wolf.

That is a newbie.

If it’s that diseased, shooting it might well have been a kindness.

If that hairless thing was killed recently in Kentucky, death may have been a relief as cold as it has been.

“Goat Sucker”—— I am not sure that is the exact translation from Arabic, where Chupacabra is a term of endearment and describes a boy’s formative years with the sheep and goats.

Wrong continent, and the adults are much pudgier with much shorter shoulder-elbow, elbow-wrist ratios. Much smaller, stubbier creature which lives in Australia and Tasmania.

Well, whatever kinda gravy comes off of it.

The only gravy I know is where you catch the drippins put in some flour and a little water and ya got gravy.

If its a dog then ya got dog gravy and If its a cat ya got cat gravy.

I picked somethin off the road the other day that was too far gone to identify. It made the best dam gravy I ever tasted. Man you could smell that gravy a mile away.

Never did figger out what it was. I think it was some kind of cat. I dunno? Maybe it was a chupalabra. As far as I could tell I think it had black and white fur when it was alive and a powerful good flavor. mmmm uh mmm mmm mmmuh good

An it was aged just right. Thank goodness for the cold. Keeps the maggots off.
