RATCLIFFE, Texas — Deep in the back woods of South Texas, you never know what might be lurking around the corner, or in your tree.
“He saw this strange animal up here eating corn,” Jackie Stock said.
In Ratcliffe, a small town in DeWitt County, residents are certain they've found the mythical, despicable chupacabra, and this time, it's alive.
Ratcliffe Resident Jackie Stock said her husband caught the creature Sunday night.
He called me to come and look, and I said Bubba that looks like a baby chupacabra, Stock said.
With its hairless back, large claws, countless teeth and ferocious growl, many would say this animal fits the bill.
I hunted coons for 20 years with dogs and I aint ever seen anything that looks like that right there, Ratcliffe resident Arlen Parma said.
Parma said one of the biggest signs it's not a raccoon is its growl.
A coon doesnt make that noise, or a possum. What makes that noise? I guess a chupacabra does, Parma said.
Most people in DeWitt County are convinced this is the elusive chupacabra, but what do wildlife experts have to say?
The animal in the cage as best I can tell from the view is some sort of a small canine, Brent Ortego, Wildlife Diversity Biologist with Texas Parks and Wildlife, said.
Ortego said a canine can include a coyote, dog, or even a fox. He said the animal most likely has mange which has caused it to lose its hair. But as for a chupacabra, he thinks otherwise.
It's never been proven to be a unique species. It was always something out there that allegedly was said to cause harm to people or livestock, Ortego said.
Chupacabra or not, right now this little guy is staying at the Stock household, living off a diet of cat food and corn, at least until someone can find out what it really is.
We were just trying to figure out what it is because we've never seen anything like it before, Stock said.
Hyena ? Dingo ?
Holy cow! They really did catch one!!! No canine eats out of its hands.
How come earth shattering pictures are never focused very good? I’ve noticed this phenomena with bigfoot also.
These people can put it on display at the state fair and make a bundle.
Sure looks like a dog to me...
The photo is a still from the video, which is much clearer.
That ain’t no canine!
Holy crap Big Foot will be caught soon.
“’Bubba that looks like a baby chupacabra’”
She's in the white hut.
It's a Womp rat, native to Tatooine. No biggy, just give Luke a holler and he'll take care of it.
For some reason the video would not play for me, but the 21 pictures were interesting. I was surprised how small the animal was. DNA anyone?
Correction to #3, It was caught in Dewitt County, SE of San Antonio.
It isnt a chupathingie it is the domesticated pet of one of them reptoids that lives underground. Someone must have left the gate open to the underground hidden city...
Omg i just wet myself.
