Chupacabra sightings could be the result of people deliberately breeding dogs to look like them.


Houston animal control officials have warned that some dog breeders have been going out of their way to purposely breed dogs that resemble cryptozoological creatures so that they can claim up to $10,000 in prize money for 'finding' them.

How do you purposely give a dog mange?

I must not fear. Fear is the Mind-Killer. It is the little death that brings total obliteration. I will face my fear.
I will permit it to pass over me and to move through me. And when it is gone I will turn the inner eye to see it's path.
When the fear is gone, there will be nothing. Only I will remain.

You may think you're cool, but you'll never be as cool as Peter Capaldi with an electric guitar, on a tank, playing the Doctor Who theme.

Got all excited too... 'Don't worry dad! One of these days we'll be able to tell people we're the owners of a genuine Chupacabra!'

Eh, I really don't buy this. Is there that much money in fake cryptids that end up dead?

Next on UM, Are blurry photo caused my ghosts? Are ghost mimicing ghost apps, Are aliens trolling forums? Rick Dryer, the legend, The hero, the one man army.

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

So we have cats (called Lykoi) being bred to look like werewolves, and dogs being bred to look like Chupacabras, what's next? Salamanders bred to look like the Creature from the Black Lagoon? Iguanas to look like Godzilla?

Some of my recent dates lead me to believe they're also breeding swamp apes

Never read anything so ridiculous,frankly.The notion of breeding a dog to look like a fictional creature that never existed is quite frankly absurd as is this article...
