Nobody else look at that picture and immediately get the urge to take their glasses off and give them a really good clean?

I did, and got quite surprised that I had my contacts in.

If you look closely, you can see bigfoot between the two cars, and a UFO in the upper right hand corner.

awakeinsd: Chupacabras are indigenous to Mexico. No way for one to be in North Carolina. I mean seriously folk, lets be real here.


Armadillos have been spotted as far North as Illinois. If an Armadillo can walk it's ass up to Illinois I think a chupacabra would be able to get to North Carolina.

But seriously, why are the only pictures of these things from the people who found them dead? If you found a dead chupacabra wouldn't you turn it over to the state wildlife people? Were are the pictures from them? I'm sure if somebody turned in a dead chupacabra they would be releasing press releases left and right. Unless crazy lady, after she took a picture and sent it to the local paper, came running to them screaming, "Look look, chupacabra!!!!!" and they looked at it and said "No lady. That's a fox with rabies, go get checked out".

One born every minute you say? And I thought they were rare. But hey, you must be the Chupacabra expert, so I'll accept your statement.

The chupacabra is a rare species that only has one stage in its lifecycle:  dead (like the middle-of-the-road tortoise, which is flat and only found in the middle of the road). It just happens to look like a dead canid which has lost most or all of its fur, which is what fools so-called experts who have seen plenty of dead dogs but no chupacabra.

And UFOs are naturally small fuzzy dots. They're actually a type of gray squirrel that only eats two-day-old burritos from garbage cans. This causes them to swell up and bob around the sky until they are hungry and need to eat again. Nature has given them very sharp eye-sight and a good sense of smell. They can spot a garbage can containing burritos from upwards of 1,000 feet.

Everybody knows the only true chupacabra lives in Dewitt county and prowls the fenceline.

In other news, someone let a North Carolina woman, unable to discern basic animal shapes and incapable of restraining her ignorance, loose with a gun.

See these are the type of stories  we can expect out of North Carolina as they dismantle the public education system.

Well, that's just great. They caught a mangy fox. What I want to know is when they're gonna catch the goddamn samsquanch on my property. That's not too much to ask, eh?
 
2013-07-28 12:17:25 AM
If it's a canine, and it clearly is, it's not a chupacabra.  If you caught it in North Carolina, and you clearly did, it's not a chupacabra.  If it's a real animal, and it clearly is, it's not a chupacabra.  In short, the answer is always, it's not a chupacabra.

Looks like fox to me (and seriously, 99 44/100% of these "chupacabras" turn out to be a fox with mange; the other 66/100% turn out to be coyotes with mange).

Nah, this is the Wilkesboro area. They were hopeless to start with, and then they took away their Nascar races and this was the inevitable result.

Y'all know me. Know how I earn a livin'. I'll catch this bird for you, but it ain't gonna be easy. Bad chupacabra. Not like going down to the woods and chasin' mangy foxes and coyotes. This chupacabra will swallow you whole. Little shakin', little tenderizin', an' down you go. And we gotta do it quick, that'll bring back your tourists, put all your businesses on a payin' basis. But it's not gonna be pleasant. I value my neck a lot more than three thousand bucks, chief. I'll find him for three, but I'll catch him, and kill him, for ten. But you've gotta make up your minds. If you want to stay alive, then ante up.

Allow me to introduce you to Walnut Cove's... Only remaining indigenous life-form. What do you think? It killed 20 of my people, including my beloved wife. Oh, not all at once. And not instantly, to be sure. You see, their young enter through the ears... And wrap themselves around the cerebral cortex. This has the effect of rendering the victim... Extremely susceptible to suggestion. Later, as they grow, follows madness... And death.

Well, clearly he's visited Maryland at some point. He was probably looking for mange treatment...

Fox.

That's a big fox.


it's adult size. Compare it to the tailgate. A coyote would be a lot larger.

Coincidentally, I happen to be watching the X-Files episode "El Mundo Gira" where they look for el chupacabra. And it looks nothing like that photo.

tuna fingers: You suck at the maths, Great Porn Dragon.


OK, 56/100% of "chupacabras" are coyotes with mange, my bad (this is why one should not attempt to post when drinking bourbon, hehe).   The point being that I've not seen a claimed North American Goatsucker (particularly not in the eastern US) that hasn't turned out to be a fox with mange, a coyote with mange, or a feral dog with mange.  (And yes, severe mange CAN make a canid look scaly.  Basically it's the canine equivalent of the Norwegian scabies (do not GIS "Norwegian scabies" unless you've a strong stomach, probably NSFL)...)
 
2013-07-28 03:25:05 AM
And apparently I am STILL drunk enough that I have forgotten how to type (or do maths)...cutting myself off nao, and just noting that a poor canid with the dog equivalent of Norwegian scabies is not some alien goatsucker. :D

(Interestingly, at least some chupacabra stories might be inspired by exaggerated stories of vampire bat predation--THERE's your real-life goatsuckers.)
 
2013-07-28 03:29:46 AM
So instead of using the internet, a book, or calling animal control to help her identify it, she just assumes it's a chupacabra? Yeah her logic circuits sound good.

It's always 100% legit when the pictures are taken in someone's back yard...

...Because only hoaxsters run to Animal Control or a zoologist at the local University when they have the body of a legendary cryptid.

indigenous to Mexico. No way for one to be in North Carolina. you've obviously never visited our great state. they can even get divers licenses.

Looks like a cat stapled to a stick.

Also I'm not sure I'm looking at it right, but according to legend, is a chupacabra supposed to have antlers coming out of its ass?
