The attack happened Saturday in Jack County, northwest of the Dallas/Fort Worth area. Staysha Henderson was at her grandmothers house. Henderson said the skinny, malnourished, gray creature she and her family believe is a chupacabra was lurking inside a camper. The animal attacked and bit Henderson on her hand. Her family shot and killed the animal.

Officials are now testing to determine exactly what the creature

    Mangy Coyote Or Dog. Case closed

    Awwww, at first I thought the lady had actually been attacked by a chupacabras – you know, the bipedal, big-eyed, spiny-backed entity that made it’s debut in Puerto Rico.

    Turns out it was just another one of those mangy canids.

    I live in rural Ohio and have seen literally, hundreds of thousands of animals over the years, including coyotes, coy dogs and foxes. Never once, have I seen a mangy one. Yet it seems as though Texas has an epidemic of mange. How many mangy animals do they have running around? Maybe they should look at stopping the mange epidemic and then these animals wouldn’t be mis-identified so much.

  5. Tarzanboyy responds:

    …Really? When are they going to stop calling mangy canids chupacabras? They’re not.

  6. coelacanth1938 responds:

    Well, now’s our chance to see if whatever made those canids into ‘chupacabras’ can jump species.

  7. cryptidbeliever4life responds:

    wow wow wow! i live in texas there is no way that it is a mangy coyote becase if you take a close look the muzzle is way longer the front legs are way shorter than the back and if im wrong why dont they do a dna test to see?

  8. Tarzanboyy responds:

    So it’s a fox or a dog, or less likely a mangy raccoon or coati. But a chupacabras, it is not.
