The Chupacabra Caught?
by Mike Krumboltz
8 hours ago

It really does exist! Maybe! The famed chupacabra has apparently been found, and it's a Texan.

Or at least it was. The beast is now dead, but news of its capture near Blanco, Texas, inspired Bigfoot-sized searches. Lookups on "chupacabra" surged a whopping 571%, and related queries on "what does chupacabra mean" also roared. (For the record, its rough translation is "goat sucker.") The find also inspired renewed interest in the equally notorious Montauk Monster.

Jerry Ayer, owner of Blanco Taxidermy School, has possession of the mythical beast's body. According to CNN, the animal was discovered by one of Ayer's students. The student had "placed poison...to catch an unidentified animal that had gotten into a family member's barn." Little did the student know the animal in question was (maybe) the chupacabra.

In the video from CNN (which is pretty gross, so beware), Ayer shows off some of the unusual features of the animal, including abnormally long legs and teeth. It looks a bit like the world's ugliest (and meanest) dog.

Of course, this is hardly the first time someone has claimed to have captured the chupacabra. In years past, brave souls have spotted it in places ranging from Russia to Maine to the Philippines. Often the animal is spotted by folks who conveniently forget to snap a photo.

Not so this time. Ayer says he plans to preserve the animal and then donate it to a local museum so it can be enjoyed by others. As the taxidermist puts it, the beast is "a tremendous conversation piece." Sort of like the Mona Lisa or a really stellar collection of garden gnomes. http://www.cnn.com/video/#/video/offbeat/2009/09/01/roldan.chupacabra.KSAT?iref=videosearch

Now you see why folks "in the know" are very speculative of CNNs sources and news commentary. The guy couldn't even look them in the face(errr..camera).

There will probably be some convenient reason as to why DNA testing cannot be done.

Oh and when I clicked on the link I was forced to watch a commercial about removing an organ through your belly button. Coincidence? I think not.

They are real. I've seen them, or was that Bigfoot? Well I had been drinking.

Perhaps it was a Chupacabra with large feet.

Maybe it was a long-lost relative of that mother/daughter/sister/cousin couple Bruce posted a pic of recently.

Let's think of convenient reasons why you can't do DNA testing.

Here's my first one...

1. Chupacabra's evidently don't have any DNA

Gentlemen, gentlemen!

First of all never ever believe a word out of the mouth of a taxidermist!

Here's the picture. Looks like a fawn in a fetal postion that's been soaking in a vat of formic acid to me. Seriously it doesn't look that weird to me. I'm sure if there was a better picture we could tell what it is. Probably just a mangy inbred canine or coyote.

If pigs could fly bacon would be harder to come by and there would be a lot of damaged trees.

Cryptozoology...I fervently believe in the existence of bigfoot - seriously, not so sure on these things, but it's the second video I've seen of dead ones showing up in Texas over the last few years. They both looked identical. I realize 99% of the forum is rolling their eyes...

Well that explains a lot.

So you believe in Bigfoot and Chupacabra and the tooth fairy.

Remind me again, how to you feel about...

After seeing the video I can't see how bigfoot did not go extinct. He's too slow to even catch a sheep!

Doesn't it get hot and itchy in that outfit? What do you do with the sheep if/when you catch one?
