This woman, Phylis Canion, who has been a hunter all her life and had lived in Africa collecting head trophies of various wildlife, claims to have found roadkill near her Texas ranch, 80-miles southeast of San Antonio and believes them to be the remains of the fabled chupacabra creature which is said to kill livestock and drink their blood until the body is dry. There were three bodies of the strange animal found over four days and each one weighed about 40 pounds, and had ash-blue skin that was practically hairless. Canion said she had saved the head of the one she found to save it for posterity and to have the DNA tested. She believes the creatures are the ones that killed 26 of her chickens in the past two years. The bodies of the chickens weren't eaten, but were drained of blood.
Veterinarian Travis Schaar of the Main Street Animal Hospital in neighboring Victoria thinks the remains are of a strange breed of dog which may be the result of a mutation. Oh, well. Whatever. The pictures do remind me of the zombie dogs in the movie Resident Evil. For more movie and other entertainment news, go to Hots Up. Read about the new supernatural reality show Destination Truth and how it may finally disclose the truth behind the fabled El Chupacabra. The study that deals with "hidden" or mythical animals is cryptozoology.
FLASH! The identity of this chupacabra is revealed, along with a close up picture of the head, here.
