Chupacabra Back in the Mainstream News

Recommended Posts

I have $40 for the first actual captured CH/C, dead or alive.

Is this something you can put a price on? :)

Let's ride Scotty!

Funny thing about Chupacabras, they are rarely ever seen.

But these fellas can be found everywhere and will try and headbutt you in the shins if given a chance.

Sorry, not impressed: there's one of those on the wall at a local bar and the antlers aren't enough to hurt my shins... at least not when I'm wearing my gear. It would probably be fun to chase one down, though.

What a Crock!

Wise County 'chupacabra' a hairless raccoon, biologist says

Combine a raccoon with a chupacabra and you get. ...

A chupa-coon? A rac-a-cabra?

Folks in Wise County have wondered for the past week if they've captured the legendary chupacabra -- that mythical creature of south-of-the-border lore known to suck the blood from the livestock it attacks.

A small, hairless animal was found dead Jan. 13 by a maintenance worker at Runaway Bay Golf Course near Lake Bridgeport.

A state biologist who examined it on Tuesday assured that the animal was a male raccoon, probably no more than a few months old.

How it lost its hair, however, was still a mystery on Wednesday.

"It was a raccoon, no doubt about it," said Jennifer Barrow, the biologist. "It's feet were a real giveaway. It had long toes, narrow feet ... everything right for a raccoon."

But Barrow, who works for the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, didn't stop there.

She compared the shape of its head to a bleached raccoon skull, and they matched. The animal's "dental formula" also was similar to that of a raccoon, she said.

Nevertheless, news of the Wise County creature became a media sensation across Texas and beyond. Plug the word "chupacabra" into a search engine and the story will appear on tons of Web sites.

Texas, it seems, already was the epicenter for "chupe" sightings in recent years.

In 2004, the hairless, dog-like "Elmendorf Beast" was spotted near San Antonio, soon followed by two more sightings in the same area.

There was another sighting a year later near Coleman and then, in 2007, a batch of them were seen or killed near Cuero in DeWitt County.

Tests performed on some of the carcasses indicated that the animals were coyotes infected with sarcoptic mange, a scabby skin malady that can rid an animal of its hair.

But Wise County's hairless raccoon was healthy, leaving Barrow to speculate how it lost its coat.

"He didn't appear to be sick -- except that he was dead," she said. "But he wasn't skinny. It had real smooth skin.

"There were no signs of mange."

She said the raccoon closely resembled one that was captured alive about three years ago in Kentucky.

It was examined by officials from that state's fish and wildlife department, and it had no signs mange or other diseases. A photo of that creature can be viewed here. Scroll to the end of the pdf file.

Kentucky officials speculated it had an abnormal skin condition.

Barrow said the Wise County raccoon may have been born that way, too, but she offered another theory.

She said it may have fallen into nearby Lake Bridgeport during freezing weather, killing it. The cold water also preserved him, Barrow suggested.

And, after an extended period, the cold water caused him to drop his hair.

"The water actually takes the hair off," she said, although she couldn't explain how.

But, Barrow added, "A fellow I worked with said he once observed a dead calf, half in water. The half that was in the water didn't have any hair and the part out of the water had hair."

Barrow said she has been hearing about chupacabras since she became a biologist in the 1990s, "but it was usually just for a joke."

"I guess," she concluded, "the legend has been perpetrated again -- at least for a little while."

I heard that next to goats and motomorons the Chupacabra's favorite food is the elusive Jackalope.:banghead:

All

OMG!!!!!

Looks like the evidence is correct and Chupacabra is FOR REAL. As BAJAPITS has reported in the past, this creature is as real as it gets. Most seasoned racers will tell new racers to always be on the look out for Chupacabra. Baja Rudy is an expert on this subject!!!!

With the Baja 250 coming up, make sure you have plenty of Gospel Music playing, no 2-strokes, too much chain wax attrackes these demons and wear allot of OLD SPICE aftershave to ward off this creature that will suck the blood out of you.

Wicked Things, Jibby Bloops, ToezaDails, Cuthapies, GlueVics, Gligbots, Whoot-nas, Obiehatches, and Twitchy-itchies are also a problem that the media is holding back on reporting to the public.

Only FOX NEWS will report the truth!!

OMG!!!!!!
