I guess if it had hair, he would have called it a werewolf.

I hope this guy never shoots a bear, or we're in for one heck of a new "cryptid" :no:

Or a dogman

Come to think of it, this should be in the two-legged dogman database.

Chupacabras are just dogs with mange.

My money is still on the Xolo.
They are the "first dog of the Americas" and are a natural breed not a mutant. Some are hairless and some have a coat. They were used to ward off evil spirits, for one. Used to heal ailments for another with their warm skin.

The one that was reported in the news a couple years ago. Hang on let me see if I can find it again. The one thing about news stories is they often disappear on the web after a very short time.

Yet DNA shows they are dog...

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

The article says the DNA from first necropsy indicates a hybrid of coyote and Mexican wolf although does not explain the chronic mange appearance of these canids.  So, now that we've all seen a handful of these creatures do we still call them "chupacabra" or do they get a scientific name?

At the dog park a few weeks ago, a guy had a coyote/domestic dog hybrid. I had never heard of one before. Wolf/dog hybrid, yes, but not coyote.

Yeah, lab results from some woman's stuffed "Texas Blue Dog".  But she thinks it may be a whole new species, and doesn't seem to agree with coyote/Mex wolf.

The one the guy shot in the article was not tested. He disposed of the body.
