Looks like another mangy or decomposing raccoon is being called a “Chupacabra;” this time the find is from Nelson County, Kentucky! See here.

Certainly, he is acknowledged as the current living American researcher and writer who has most popularized cryptozoology in the late 20th and early 21st centuries. Starting his fieldwork and investigations in 1960, after traveling and trekking extensively in pursuit of cryptozoological mysteries, Coleman began writing to share his experiences in 1969. An honorary member of Ivan T. Sanderson’s Society for the Investigation of the Unexplained in the 1970s, Coleman has been bestowed with similar honorary memberships of the North Idaho College Cryptozoology Club in 1983, and in subsequent years, that of the British Columbia Scientific Cryptozoology Club, CryptoSafari International, and other international organizations. He was also a Life Member and Benefactor of the International Society of Cryptozoology (now-defunct). Loren Coleman’s daily blog, as a member of the Cryptomundo Team, served as an ongoing avenue of communication for the ever-growing body of cryptozoo news from 2005 through 2013. He returned as an infrequent contributor beginning Halloween week of 2015. Coleman is the founder in 2003, and current director of the International Cryptozoology Museum in Portland, Maine.

    Loren – I love this stuff. Chupacabra legend are always fun in South Texas. It may seem naive, but I wonder if some of these twisted up manged critters would be the basis of the chupa legend.

    Then again, if its decomposed, why is there no visible insect damage or gas bloating? I hate to sound challenging, and obviously the only dead animals I have seen are mounted, on the dinner plate, or a dog kill, and they generally are torn up and have lots of larval activity.

Sorry. Comments have been closed.
