THE MONSTER HUNTER –
“The Search for The Texas Blue Dog”
Since 2004, bizarre, zombie-like canines have been appearing around the state of Texas. Several of their hairless carcasses have been recovered since that time and there have even been allegations that these creatures drink the blood of small farm animals, (in a fashion very similar to the famous Puerto Rican Chupacabras), though that aspect has not been substantiated.
However, we appear to be dealing with two completely different subjects that share the same name. There are some important questions that remain about the Texas ‘Blue Dogs’ and their origins, disease vs genetics for example. Join Ken “The Monster Hunter” Gerhard, Naomi West, Richard West, Taylor James Johnson and Dylan Cody Altman as they attempt something which has never been done before – capture a live Blue Dog/Chupacabra in order to prove definitively why these canids look and behave so strangely.
