Another Texas Chupacabras?

Posted by: Craig Woolheater on May 19th, 2011

Another strange carcass found in Texas…

Another (mis)identification as the Texas Chupacabras…

Carcass found: Could it be the dreaded chupacabra?

SAN ANTONIO — The blood-sucking chupacabra sightings continue. This time the peculiar animal has apparently been spotted in Helotes and near Stockdale.

The creature appears to be hairless and sports strange toes.

Drake Gafford found one of the odd dead animals along Highway 181 South.

“I threw him in a sack on the bed of my pickup,” he said.

Gafford described the animal as having “red eyes, big old fangs and claws coming out, just a sharp as they could be.”

Both carcasses beg the question: Are they the vampire-like monsters with the worldwide following?

Gafford says he is convinced.

“Chupacabra all the way,” he said. “It [doesn't] surprise me at all with civilization encroaching on animals,” he added.

    It’s the rare and illusive Texas Poochadogra

    I ask you…Is this the Hybridization of coyote and gray wolf, that was stated on ‘Fact or Faked’ TV show? or not? Anyone have the ‘official’ verdict? I wish the media would stop connecting this animal with a myth from Puerto Rico. They share a name only.

  3. HulkSmashNow responds:

    What gets me is that this thing looks nothing like the original “Chupacabras” monster’s description, and the media cannot even pronounce that name correctly. It’s no wonder this field will never get taken seriously outside of itself with this kind of coverage.

    Granted I am no expert, but the skin on this dog is much smoother (at least it seems to be in this photo) than the other two ‘Chupacabras’ they found. It would seem as if THIS animal was in the water for a while, rather than left in the hot sun. And of course the fact that it is severely twisted in the middle. Is there any possibility that this is a complete hoax, as opposed to being nothing more than a mis-identified carcass?

    Guys, I am currently working on this with a good friend of mine who is a well noted and published cryptozoologist. I have been asked to help trap one of these alive. We have had several dead ones. The DNA of this animal indicates that the paternal ancestry of the Y chromosome matches the Mexican Wolf, while the maternal ancestry indicates the source animal is the coyote. Just the fact that these two animals have mated is astounding. The Mexican wolf is all but gone. There was a test done on another specimen that claimed it was just a coyote with mange. I promise you the one I have personally had my hands on had no mange. Mange is a serious condition where the skin in infested with parasites and severe itching and scratching and a foul odor is present the skin is usually covered with sores from the scratching. None of this was present on the animal I viewed. These animals may not be the famed vampire like Chupa of legend but may be a unique animal and in of itself. An elongated snout with longer than normal canine teeth, short front limbs and longer rear. The claws were way longer and sharper than a domesticated dog or coyote. The animal tested by Texas State may have been a coyote but the results I saw said that it matched a coyote but also matched a domestic dog to the same percentage, a terrier. Maybe, but I just read that result in an e-mail. I may be wrong, I try to leave the Technical stuff to the scientists in our group. I am the animal expert and tracker/trapper.
