Texan confronts the legendary chupacabras
Sinister goat sucker or mangy coyote?
A Texan taxidermist has earned himself some nice publicity for parading what he claims may be a chupacabras - the legendary goat-sucking hell beast first spotted in Puerto Rico in 1995 and which has since spooked fearful citizens across Central America:
Well, it didn't take sceptics long to point out the similarity between the caprine-worrying devil creature and the Xoloitzcuintli breed of mutt. Judge for yourselves here. Alternatively, others have suggested it's just an rather unfortunate, mange-ravaged coyote, or possibly a monstrous hybrid dedicated to stripping the Americas of their goat and chicken populations.
The truth will soon be known. According to the Los Angeles Times, Ayers has "received requests from the University of Texas and UC Davis to provide tissue samples for their ongoing research", and between them they will doubtless be able to determine the beast's real identity.
In the meantime, here's another chupacabras sighting, this time a live example of a Texan goat sucker on the prowl for prey, Be afraid...
Two seperate phenomona
Anybody whose been paying attention to the chupacabra sighting over the years will will quickly notice that what we have here are two separate phenomena. There's the original legend of the chupacabra from Puerto Rico, and a completely separate set of sightings from the US. Mostly Texas.
The reports from the US probably are just mass hysteria, and probably result form people getting fleeting glances of mange ridden wild animals and having one of their oh so common fear meltdowns. Desriptions vary wildly, and often barely resemble the Puerto Rico descriptions, and these sad carcasses that they keep finding in Texas certainly do not resemble a scaly bipedal creatures with spines and bulbous heads from the original legend.
I'm not saying that there really is a chupacabra stalking goats in Puerto Rico, but the things that are reported in the US certainly are not the creature from the chupacabra legend. They are not even close. It's just another example of the US pilfering other people's legends and trying to make out that they are all American stories. We've already seen Eastern European legends turned into Hollywood Vampires Zombies, and Western European legends being appropriated into funky stories about werewolf and druids and Witches. Pretty much the only original US legend (Other than the native American ones) is the Gray alien. And even that now bares little resemblance to the ones that Betty and Barney Hill originally reported thanks to Hollywood and the X-Files. For starters, the original Grays wore clothes and didn't have a fixation with probing rednecks nether regions.
I notice that YouTube has pulled the video, and as is typical has't explained itself.
No, not like that.
It's not a story about a bigfoot in the freezer.
Concealing the evidence? It's a secret government cover up!
