A strange creature witnessed in woods near a hospital has been nicknamed "Prince Chupa".

Unlike with many sightings of unknown animals however this one was actually captured and a series of photographs taken before it was released back in to the wilds. "It’s a kangaroo, dog, rat mixed," said X-ray technician Joe Livermore.

"The creature has been spotted in the woods where smokers take breaks since the hospital banned smoking June 1, but no one knows what the animal is, so they’ve named it Prince Chupa, after chupacabra."

If any of you saw this walking around outside, would you instantly say 'its a rat' or would Lenny have been another 'OMG MYSTERY BEAST!' http://www.shadowrat.com/rats/lennysleep.jpg Just sayin' things look odd when they're bald, even moreso if they're underweight or have an injury. Below is a photo of lenny at the end part of his life, when he couldn't keep weight on (he'd also lost his tail earlier in life) http://www.shadowrat.com/rats/cyn13.jpg A lot of people wouldn't identify him as a rat, Im sure. It just shows that hairlessness on things that usually have hair freaks people's perception... [More]

It does look canine but has some features not seen in them. It's tail is way too long and has a tuft on the end. ....... The back legs are much longer than the front. Like this?

Like this? No, I think that looks like a fox. Tail sure looks long though. But I guess if it had more fur on it it would look normal.

The tuft on the tail is because, if we're talking mange, it doesn't make their hair just fall out uniformly. It comes out in patches along their body. A tuft on the end of the tail is very common in animals with mange. And honestly, until you've seen an animal stripped of its hair, you don't realise how long certain parts of its anatomy are. Rats, for example, have very short legs proportionately, to their body. But look at a hairless one, and their legs are pretty long. I could post pics to show if needed. The long tail is 100% fox. They have long tails, they just look more compact and short ... [More]

I don't know why they called it Chupacabra...Chupacabra is a huminoid vampire "Goat Sucker" type animal. This to me looks like a bald kangaroo, it does have a jackal like face though. It could be a new species, hybrid-species or maybe just an undocumented species thats been around for a while but has rarely sighted n the past. I agree with you though, that the animal should have been checked to see if it had been injured and should have been tested to find out what it actually is.

I recently listened to a fascinating interview with Benjamin Radford for episode #148 of the Skeptic Zone, (The Podcast from Australia for Science and Reason). He spent years tracking down the origins of the legend, narrowing it down to Madelyne Tolentino in Puerto Rico. He is introduced 3 minutes into the show. Here's a page from (link) ABC's Good Morning America 's site summarizing his book: "Tracking the Chupacabra". Spoiler below!

This could be an Xolo-a hairless breed of dog. Whatever it is it seemed to calm to not be domesticated. I would attach a picture but am having problems!
