Mythological Monsters Spotted in Rural Texas

Two unidentified animals were killed last week in Hood County, Texas, last week, both labeled "the ugliest creatures they've ever seen" by the men shooting. "It wasn't normal, it was ugly," said Animal Control Officer Frank Hackette. "Real ugly."

El Chupacabra (from chupar "to suck" and cabra "goat", literally "goat sucker") are legendary creatures are rumored to live in the Americas, keeping to the south and central parts, allowing Bigfoot full range of the Yukon. The name comes from the animal's reported habit of attacking and drinking the blood of livestock, especially goats. It look like a mixture between a rat, hairless dog, and kangaroo. Vampire pet? I think so.

study and search for animals considered to be legendary or mythical in origin and are otherwise nonexistent in the field of biology, stressing that attention should be given to local, urban and folkloric sources regarding such creatures, arguing that while often layered in unlikely and fantastic elements, folktales can have small grains of truth and important information regarding undiscovered organisms.

This sounds crazy, but cryptozoologists have legitimized the okapi, mountain gorilla, giant squid and Hoan Kiem Turtle , species formerly thought to be cryptids. Phantom cats, also known as Alien Big Cats (ABCs), are large felines found outside their usual habits, ranging and varied in location from England to Hawaii, are often a subject of cryptozoological interest. Crytopzoologists also search for living examples of animals that are considered extinct, such as dinosaurs; animals whose existence lacks physical support but which appear in myths, legends, or are reported, such as Bigfoot and Chupacabra.


El Chupacabra has been spotted in Texas before. In 2004, a San Antoino farmer killed what appeared to be a hairless dog-like creature which had been terrorizing his livestock. A study at the University of California, Davis, determined the beast to be a coyote with demodeic or sarcoptic mange. In October, two more dead carcasses were found and examined, these too were identified as coyotes with mange.

Some people believe that's just a cover up. Dave Pettis, who used to run the site, isn't convinced after seeing pictures of the carcasses.
"Some people think it's some [lab] experiment that escaped, but other people think it's some animal that's been around for a long time, like in South America. The clearing of the rain forests has made it come out," he said. "It didn't look like a coyote. It's back legs are too long."

Hide yo kids, hide yo goats.
