LOL: Chupacabra Turns Out To Be Coyote-Dog With Parasites!

By Robert Paul Reyes


"A Texas animal control officer said a hairless creature that sparked chupacabra rumors was a canine-coyote hybrid with mange."

chupacabraCresson code enforcement officer Johnny Collins said he spotted the animal enter a barn July 7 and called Frank Hackett, Hood County animal control officer, who shot the animal when it appeared to be preparing to attack, the Fort Worth (Texas) Star-Telegram reported Wednesday.

Collins, a member of the Texas State Guard, said he showed pictures his colleagues during a drill and they identified the beast as a `chupacabra,` a mythical Mexican beast purported to suck the blood from goats and other animals. UPI

A code enforcement officer who doesn`t have a degree in biology or chupacabraology, and his buddies (probably after drinking a few beers) decide that the animal was the mythological chupacabra. A few more beers and the idiots would have identified a Taco bell Chalupa as a chupacabra.

Scientists conducted tests, and identified the corpse as a coyote-canine hybrid with mange and internal parasites. If Collins went a couple of weeks without taking a bath, he would also look like a chupacabra.

So the chupacabra is really a coyote with parasites...

Hmm maybe...

The Loch Ness Monster is really Oprah Winfrey taking a swim in a lake

Bigfoot is really a female East German weightlifter.

Most UFO`s are the result of too few brain cells and too much whisky.

Mothman is in fact Lady Gaga after a few drinks.

Most leprechauns are little people with an attitude.

The latest sighting of a werewolf is Mel Gibson after a fight with his girlfriend

Richard Simmons is responsible for 98 percent of fairy sightings.
