Chupacabra Found in Texas? Or Oklahoma? Or Both? (Pictures)
Could the mythical chupacabra have been found at last? Three different people in the last day are saying, "... maybe". So let's go through the chupacabra-found reports, all three of which feature chupacabra pictures & video in the links below: First up, Lynn Butler of Rosenberg, Texas, seems to think he may have found the carcass of a chupacabra. The strange, doglike creature was found in his mother's cousin's barn.
Lynn Butler kept the dead critter in a freezer for three months as he tried to figure out what it was. The beast is described as hairless with long teeth and a coyote-like body. Lynn Butler's verdict: either a chupacabra, or a mangy coyote. Lynn Butler has sent a blood sample to Texas A&M University for analysis, but the animal's ultimate fate is to be mounted and displayed.
"I've never seen anything like it and I've hunted most of my life," said Lynn Butler of Rosenberg.
But wait- that's not the only chupacabra find in the last 24 hours.
In San Antonio, Texas, taxidermist Jerry Ayer draws our attention to another chupacabra find, once again caught in a barn.The description and footage are similar to Lyn Buttler's.
"It got into his cousin's barn and they thought maybe it was a rodent tearing stuff up, and they no idea since they've never seen it," Ayers said. "He got out some poison and this is what they got the next day."
In Stilwell, Oklahoma, an anonymous viewer sent footage to News On 6 of yet another hairless, fanged creature:
The Spanish name chupacabra translates to goat sucker. It comes from the creature's reported habit of attacking and drinking the blood of livestock, especially goats.
So, is the animal in the pictures really a chupacabra? That's for you to decide.
