it could be a fox but i think it looks more like a cat to me. maybe it was someones pet?

the muzzle looks different though and it looks...short? the fox in the picture with mange looks taller than that thing in the video.

personally if it was me i'd have taken it to a vet to see if they knew what it was and if there was anything wrong with it.

it could also be an inbred dog or cat or i guess even fox.

Aw, I read the title and was hoping someone finally caught the manbearpig.

Sorry, Al Gore. :hmm:

With all of these creatures turning up and being shown to just have had mange... maybe they'll eventually think "Hey, maybe they just have mange."

I couldn't agree more, it's kinda like the "El Chupacabra" caught on tape by the police in texas.

friggin' idiots...

It has a really long tail, people seem to be missing that when they keep saying its a fox or a dog.

You seem to have missed both pictures of the bald foxes in this thread.

It was so much easier to blame it on Them. It was bleakly depressing to think that They were Us. If it was Them, then nothing was anyone's fault. If it was us, what did that make Me? After all, I'm one of Us. I must be. I've certainly never thought of myself as one of Them. No one ever thinks of themselves as one of Them. We're always one of Us. It's Them that do the bad things.

why are these obvious canines all of a sudden defined "chupacabras"?!  I guess from now on all hairless dogs are goat suckers, like all "orbs" are ghosts.

As a dog groomer, I have worked at veterinary offices on and off for the past 13 years. I grew up around animals/farms/etc... I have seen mange. If you haven't seen mange, all it takes is a google search for "fox with mange" to determine for yourselves that mangy skin is almost always puffy, red, inflamed, and not smooth like this animal.  I do admit, it looks exactly like a hairless fox. I'm going to guess it's just a hairless fox, much like the recessive gene for the hairless pups like the Chinese Crested. Fascinating all the same.

Could be a rabid kangaroo that escaped from a zoo/circus, looks like a roo to me.

Though, that saying some of the pictures on here with that fox with mange looks awfully similar to the one in the main article. Kangaroo theory still stands as my #1 though, with its roo like face/ears, short stumpy arms and large hind legs, the pose its in looks just like a roo crouching down to eat.... Or hide?

I am amazed at how so many people seem unable to recognise a perfectly common animal just because it has no fur. I bet they dread their other half having a hair cut as it probably takes them 6 months and a DNA test to finally realise who they are.

Posted 21 August 2011 - 05:58 PM

I don't think it is a kangaroo. Look at the way it moves in the videos, exactly like a fox, or dog, not a roo or wallaby.

I think the hairless fox/dog/coyote started being IDed with Chupacabras because of people thinking they had long teeth. Their teeth are normal, it is just that people don't normally look at a fox or coyote's teeth, so when they do, the teeth look long. Long Teeth = Vampire = Chupacabras, in Pop Culture.

It's a werewolf, it's gotta be. Notice it's canine-like features, yet smooth like a human. :rolleyes:
