A Mississippi man shot a strange creature he believes to be a chupacabra -- a legendary creature that most experts believe to be nothing but a myth.

Matthew Harrell of Leake County killed the bizarre-looking animal Wednesday morning while "coon hunting" in a chicken coop.

"My neighbor said the creature had killed three of his chickens," the 28-year-old told The Huffington Post. "I thought it was a coon at first."

Looks like a dog to me too.

Here at Intel we make processors on 12 inch wafers. And, the individual processors on the wafers are called die. And, I am employed to check these die. That is why I am the DieChecker.

Can't we get a fake reptilian vampire for once? These mangy dogs are seriously getting old.

Even though the
American Chupacabra doesn't exist. The dog on the other hand does.

He shot it at close range, then "unloaded on it again" to make sure it was dead. I didn't see any gunshot wounds.

Can't crypo searchers have the stomach contents of any of these "Chupacabras" tested to see if they are indeed blood suckers and end this ridiculous fantasy.

They said nails and teeth don't look like a normal dog's and its body posture was odd. Looked normal to me, but that could be easily checked out by a vet. So could a test for mange or hairless dog breed.

Man, I hope he doesn't shoot a human and tell every one it was a cyborg

It is easier to claim it is paranormal than taking the hard route and find out what really happened.

It's a good thing he had a weapon close by to protect himself from that sick starving dog.

I vote we shoot the next idiot who calls a mangy dog a chupicabra. For added fun we'll say he was a Reptilian from the Draco nebula.
