For decades a creature known as Chupacabra has been blamed for animal and human attacks in the United States and other parts of the world. Descriptions of the beast vary, but most eyewitnesses who claim to have encountered the creature say that is it small yet ferocious, and resembles a dog or another type of canine.
Several Chupacabra videos, photos and carcasses have turned up, but none of them have provided adequate proof that the creature is real or any insight into what it might be.
A couple in Texas claims that they have captured a live Chupacabra and hope that the creature can be studied and its identity can be determined. The creature looks like a small, hairless dog and is gray in color with beady, black eyes. The couple caught the creature eating corn on their farm and quickly captured it.
They said that they showed it to a few friends and neighbors before going public with the capture and although they believed it to be the legendary Chupacabra, they were a bit nervous to make such a wild claim.
Jackie Stock, the woman who captured the creature, said that she and her husband Bubba could not believe their eyes when they saw the creature.
“He called me to come and look, and I said 'Bubba that looks like a baby Chupacabra,” Jackie said “We were just trying to figure out what it is because we've never seen anything like it before.”
Although the animal's looks are bizarre enough, the sounds it makes are even stranger. Jackie said that the noises the animals makes are not like that made by any other animals she has ever seen or encountered.
The couple plans to keep the creature and are caring for it at their home until someone is willing to take a look at it and determine what it is. In the past, alleged Chupacabras have turned out to be dogs and coyotes with mange or other health problems.
Do you think the creature could really be a Chupacabra?
