Does Florida have laws against harming domestic animals?....I know most States do , if so is S.L. Fussell exempt from this law?.....

Where I am from, and where I still live- if you feel something is harming your livestock or is a danger to your pets, children, self, etc you can shoot it no matter what it is and no one cares. They clearly thought this tiny creature was dangerous, though to what I don't know. Maybe it was harming the field mice? This is clearly a dog-- possibly a XOLO (Google it). The fact their were two of them, and the clear markings on the skin of the dead specimen, suggests that to me anyways. And yes Mr. Redneck it DOES have feet EXACTLY like a dog. Because it IS a dog.

Man I better never take Ryouga (my coy-dog) out on a leash again, it's summertime here in TX and his skin is acting up so he's partly bald. I'mma get shot by some crazy fool redneck. Last year he made the news for being the N. Dallas Chupacabre!

I think the media needs to research their own archives, and look up the initial chupacabra reports, that described a creature not remotely canine.  Mangy dogs, coyotes, etc., are not, and have never been, chupacabras.  They run this stuff for ratings, and ignore the actual data.  The initial reports from Puerto Rico were of a bipedal thing, with dark fur/hair, red eyes, and sharp teeth and claws.  How we went from that to mangy coyotes and the like, is anyone's guess.  Personally, I figure the original was some genetically engineered thing, and this latest stuff is simple disinformation.

Did the "Chupacabra" in the video display signs of mange? If so, would it still be illegal to kill it, because of it's poor health? I'm not condoning what the Fusells' did, but rather curious if it would be animal abuse.

I'm pretty sure thats a mangy raccoon. It was said they were in a tree, I have seen very few dogs climb trees. Besides it looks just like a raccoon with no hair.

I was just showing this to a friend who asked this question "By 'in the trees' do they mean the animals were hanging out in a group of trees or literally up in a tree?" That looked a little too large for a raccoon, but I would like to point out SOME grey foxes can climb trees rather well. I imagine grey foxes are not that uncommon in Fla.

Grey foxes do indeed climb trees as I have seen this first hand in PA, and like all canines do host mange.

I have to admit I don't think I ever actually SAW a grey fox climb a tree, red foxes were more common around the farm I grew up on. But apparently then can and will. I also hear mange is getting quite severe among foxes these days.

...I'm trying to look at this creature and figure out what is it that makes someone look at this and go "That's not a dog or canine. That's a chupacabra!"

Nothing so far to me.

I wondered this too. Though I don't keep up on the subject and do not know the history very well either, I always thought it was initially or earlier (Puerto Rico) described as an unknown,  "monster"  type with glowing red eyes and claws then later, at some point, it has now become a canine?

This is the image that comes to mind when someone mentions the name chupacabra....Attached File  CHUPA2.jpg   5.86K   3 downloads

Not a mangy dog without fur.. it is not even close to the original descriptions

Methinks that the public is just grasping at straws and making claims that any creature out of the ordinary is a chupacabra  in order for them to get their 15 minutes of fame

Nothing so far to me.

The phenomenon that makes people think sick, hairless dogs are chupacabras is the idiotic belief in the creatures to begin with.  If you think the mythical chupacabra is real then sooner or later you are going to find something that looks like one to you.  Combine this with the fact that people given over to ridiculous fringe-thinking like this are likely to bolster their puny knowledge of the natural world with claptrap they find on the internet (google chupacabra and you will surely find lots of images of mangy canines), and pretty soon you have fox news investigating because they know that crap like this generates advertising revenue.
