Hello,

I don't believe this has been posted yet, and I think would be neat to pass along to get other people's opinions. Recently a family in Polk County, Florida have shot and killed a animal they believe to be a Chupacabra. Fox 13 came out and has done a interview with the Fusells. The video does include the body of the supposed Chupacabra as well since they kept the body. Actually, this happened only 7 minutes or so away from me and our family are aquaintances with the Fusells. I haven't had a chance to see the animal in person myself, although I did ask about it.

Anyway, check out the video and let me know what you think.

Florida's own mangy dog, rather.

They shot and killed a poor puppy, lord. Where will the madness end. Just because the poor thing doesn't have fur doesn't make it a friggin' monster.

That's just an ill dog... I don't understand how they can think it is a chupacabra when there is no evidence that suggests it is... If they had said there was dead goats in the area drained of blood then that would suggest there is "something" worth looking into, but it's just a dead canine.

Oberon is it really necessary to caps everything?

Anyways

If local biologist identified it as a type of dog doesn't that pretty much rap it up? If they are skeptical why not get a second opinion, have a vet or biologist examine it without them knowing what the first biologist identified it as.

Technically if it does suck the blood of goats, it doesn't matter what it looks like it would be a chupacabra, as Chupacabra mean goat sucker...

Given dogs can't suck blood, I would say that--all technicalities considered--this still is not a chuppy.

This is the answer to everything !!!!!


WTF is wrong with people? ( not to mention , thing was scared to death hiding up a tree , Mr. Fussell gets my coward of the year award....OP , please forward that mesage to your neighbor...


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

Can someone in Florida shoot a strange looking person to " get a better look" and not get a manslaughter charge?.....

When they verify that this was in fact a dog, I hope the guy gets charged with animal cruelty. :tu:

The feet look interesting. More photos please!!

The object, known by the locals as "Bicho Voador" (Flying Animal), or "Bicho Sugador" (Sucking Animal), has the shape of a rounded ship and attacks people in isolation.

...they look like a dog's feet? That's what a paw looks like when it isn't covered with fur.
