  • The townsfolk of quiet Picayune, Mississippi are keeping their distance from a hairless, menacing-looking creature that's taken up residence in their yards
  • The bald beast looks remarkably like El Chupacabra, a legendary creature known as the 'goat sucker'
  • The story of El Chupacabra began in Puerto Rico when farmers began to find their goats dead and drained of all their blood

Indeed, unfortunately the original Chup's story has been diluted so much over the years that for many this is the real deal.

I've flown from one side of this galaxy to the other. I've seen a lot of strange stuff, but I've never seen anything to make me believe there's one all-powerful Force controlling everything. There's no mystical energy field that controls my destiny. Anyway, it's all a lot of simple tricks and nonsense.

Why yes, I find that sickly, starved creature exhibiting passive/terrified body language extremely menacing. Someone save us!

I fear letting my 100 pound German Shepherd outside, lest he be mauled and exsanguinated by that powerful awful creature.

Keep your eyes wide open and don't run!

P.S. Just to be clear, because sometimes I am not. I do not believe...
in the existence of a large previously unknown undiscovered hairy biped roaming North America.
But I like to hear the accounts, read the books, watch the shows, discuss and argue about the phenomenon.

Like all most every cryptid image, this is nothing more than a whale photographed from an odd angle.

Compare with this image:

What happened to the good old days when the chupacabra was spiny reptilian alien?

Seriously, how did the original stories devolve into this?

'fraid I am going with the mangey dog here (shouldn't it be "La Chupacabra" rather than "El Chupacabra"?)

We seriously need to find a new name for these mangy canids. Americabra?

I reject your reality, and substitute my own! Mostly because yours is boring as hell.

The poor dog looks starving. Maybe instead of the townfolk keeping their distance to this (quite obviously) hungry hairless dog, they could give it some food and maybe help him.
Would not surprise me if they would let it starve because they believe it is something from a legend.

These townfolk need to be told about Google images, there are loads of pictures of hairless dogs, this one is just another one of them.

In an ideal World a law would be passed were NO guns were allowed and all those out there destroyed, trouble is the law makers are not going to take a risk of trying to pass that without making sure they are armed first.

Yes and that's sad.

Everything is a freaking La Chupacabra!

Further evidence that 24x7 access to knowledge does not result in common sense by the witnesses...

Someone ran across a coyote with mange, someone labeled it Chupa and it's continued since.

Believe me when I tell you that common sense and the town of Picayune do not go together, EVER. I have been convinced for a long time that once you pass the Pearl River County line, which is where Picayune is, that your brain automatically shrinks.

Funny, when I was growing up in Mississippi (not far from Picayune - it's hardly a sleepy little town by the way)  and somebody saw a mangy old dog like this they'd just shoot it and be done with it.
