Chupacabra: Texas Couple Believes They’ve Captured Mythical CreatureBy: Val Powell - April 4, 2014
Jackie Stock, a Texas resident, says that she has found and captured the mythical creature called the chupacabra. According to reports, the chupacabra is a creature that attacks livestock, particularly goats, and drinks their blood.
Stock says that the creature was caught by her husband on Sunday night. “He saw this strange animal up here eating corn,” she said. Her husband also told her that the creature resembled a baby chupacabra.
The animal that was caught indeed resembles the description of a chupacabra. It has large claws, plenty of teeth, and a hairless back. The creature also has a fierce growl.
Stock resides in a small town in Dewitt County called Ratcliffe. Residents are convinced that the creature is undeniably a chupacabra. Arlen Parma, Stock’s neighbor, said, “I ain’t never seen anything that look like that right there.”
The chupacabra is considered a cryptid – a creature that is said to exist, but its existence is not backed by any scientific evidence. Some creatures under the category include Bigfoot, the Loch Ness Monster, and the Yeti.
The chupacabra is said to have first been seen in Puerto Rico. There are different physical descriptions recorded, some even say it resembles a bear with spines sticking out of its back.
This is not the first time that someone has claimed to have captured a chupacabra. According to biologist Brent Ortego, the creature that Stock caught may be a small canine, such as a fox, dog, or a coyote. As for its appearance, it seems to resemble a chupacabra, as it may be suffering from a condition known as mange, a skin disease caused by mites. This disease causes hair to fall off. Ortego also believes that the chupacabra does not exist.
Stock said that the creature will be staying in their home until someone has confirmed what it is. For the time being, they are feeding him corn and cat food.
