Author Benjamin Radford believes El Chupacabra is but a left-over memory from a science fiction movie.

Managing editor of the journal The Skeptical Inquirer Radford is no stranger to unusual stories, he has managed to trace the first physical description of the creature to a sketch made by an eyewitness in 1995 which was made in the same year as the movie "Species" was released. The human/alien hybrid featured in the film he noticed was very similar indeed to the Chupacabra sketch.

"Benjamin Radford, author of several books on monsters and paranormal phenomena, managing editor of the journal The Skeptical Inquirer and LiveScience columnist, has released what he says to be definitive proof that El Chupacabra is not real; it's not even a hoax, he said, but rather a leftover memory of a science-fiction film."

II was just on a different site about exstinct animals.The sight said that the thylacine-tasmanian tiger was hunted into extinction. It is amazing the simalarity of this animal to the hairless four legged chupa in Az. Tex. and other central statesThe front legs are a lot shorter than the rear. The ears are not as big as a large dog or coyote.Also the tail as much longer than a dogs or coyote.The snout is longer than a dog of its size With no hair and dark skin it would look just like the chupa pictures comming from Texas.Go on that site and compare.

Your right it is highly unlikely however 20 years ago there was no such thing as coyotes in the east.Now there is coyotes in every state east of the Miss. River thanks to peta who will not admit it.Also the wolves in the west was extinct a few years ago thanks to the ranchers that killed them off.Now theve made a come back thanks to peta and other groups.I saw a black wolf in AZ. in 2006. I also saw one in Ark. in 91. If you wonder why i have been in so many states its because iam a Gold Prospecter/treasure hunter.Thats why i am in the woods a lot and see things other people dont usually see.

That could be a good explaination, but I've never heard of these "giant coatis" before. Wiki (not the best source, I know) says they get around 2 feet (27 inches) long in the body and can weigh up to 8 kg. The coati ranchero describes is much longer and at least double the weight. That is still pretty big though. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Coati He also offers several candidates over a few pages.
