I took the pictures of the Chupacabra and have that post of them where it says Chupacabra sighted on Northwest side of San Antonio.... This animal does exist. I stood 10ft from it and took those pictures.... So to all you doubters.... this animal is the real thing.....

Why would you arbitrarily poison a creature that's not posing a threat to yourself or a community?

More chupacabra sightings south of SA!

Chupacabra Sighting Times Two
by Mike Krumboltz

A barn in Hood County, Texas, has become ground zero in the hunt for the chupacabra.

Earlier this week, animal control officer Frank Hackett shot and killed what was unquestionably one of the ugliest creatures to ever walk the planet. That much we know. What's less clear is whether or not the departed creature was the elusive goat-sucking beast.

Interestingly, that wasn't the only chupacabra sighting around Hood County. A second creature was spotted and killed several miles away. Both appear to be either hairless coyotes, extremely ugly dogs, or, who knows? Maybe the thing they call el chupacabra. (Full story)
Cool!

Cheers! M2

It doesn't matter what this creature looks like, since that's not the biggest problem. The Chupacabra creature is unlike any other animal, in that instead of eating chickens and goats, and other farm animals, it sucks their blood until they are dry. The ranchers go to the barn in the morning to check on the herd, and every animal is still there, but dead. Apparently, Chupacabras are vegetarians, since they don't eat the meat, only the blood. That's why Chupacabras are feared, not because of the way they look.

Maybe this is the answer...

Meet the Xolo: Chupacabra mystery solved?



DECATUR The sightings of strange animals suspected to be the mythical chupacabra have puzzled Texans for a long time.

But Kathleen Forth calls them pets.

"So I raise chupacabras, I guess," she said.

They're actually dogs rare, hairless dogs. The Decatur woman has been breeding and showing them for 16 years.

Although some of the chupacabras found in the wild turn out to be sick coyotes, Forth is convinced that ranchers have been shooting at hairless dogs.

"I believe all of those things are deceased Xolos," she said, referring to a breed of hairless Mexican dog...(full story, video & more photos)
Cheers! M2

Don't like the way that people have hijacked the name "Chupacabra" for this hairless dog. The original chupacabra looks nothing like a dog AT ALL. It goes on two legs and looks like a lizard/alien thing with spikes running down the back of the head and spine. First sighted in Puerto Rico, then on the mainland of Mexico (Yucatan). Of course, it's all rather hokey - but THAT is the real legend of the Chupacabra, not this dog.

Agreed. Also, wasn't it allegedly an alien pet that they accidentally left behind or got away from the ship?

I think so . . . At least the aliens had the right idea and went to Puerto Rico for a vacation instead of a trailer park just outside of Tupelo, Mississippi!!!
