The Chupacabra

Do they exist? It made for a great debate in the bar.

A rancher from the South Texas town of Cuero is telling a chupacabra tale, and she says she has the evidence in her freezer.

Is it a chupacabra or a grey fox?

Phylis Canion says the animal had been lurking around her ranch for years.

She said it first snatched cats, then chickens right through a wire cage.

“[It] opened it reached in pulled the chicken head out, sucked all the blood out, left the chicken in the cage,” she said.

Canion says two dozen chickens were sucked dry. The meat, she says, was left on the bone.

Neighbors speculate the blue-colored animal that was doing all that damage was a chupacabra. The name is translated from Spanish and means goat-sucker because the creature sucks the blood of livestock.

Canion says not one, but three chupacabras were spotted outside the town in recent days. All of them, she says, were blue-skinned, had no hair and had strange teeth.

Fun little story, if you ask me. Much more fun than nukes flying around the country.

They certainly look like some kind of doglike animal, sort of like a coyote but not as furry. Surely scientists can test the DNA and see what they are since she has one in her freezer?

That is what is happening. We'll see what they find. I'm just enjoying the story.

I like this story, too. There's something so comforting about being able to prove a myth true or false that's facinating.

Now, if only could we could get our nation's "leadership" to stop believing that Al Qaeda and Iraq were in cahoots on 9/11 and that Saddam had WMDs stored in his basement, we'd be getting somewhere.
