Chupacabras - or at least strange-looking animals that look like what I'd imagine a Chupacabra probably looks like - have been running rampant in Texas this year, and we here on FEARNET have been keeping a close eye on all the reports and sightings.
It all began when a man photographed a so-called Chupacabra in his backyard back in February, and continued last month, when a family shot down one of the same unusual creatures. What the hell is it? Well, now that one has been captured alive, we just might be on the verge of finding out...
The Daily News reports that Jackie Stock and her husband Arlen Parma spotted the hairless animal seen above on their property this past Sunday, which was treating itself to their corn. Rather than shooting it down, like the last family that came across one of these did, the couple captured the animal in a cage, and they firmly believe that they have indeed got their hands on one of the infamous goat-suckers. Parma says he's hunted animals for 20 years and he's never seen one that looked, or sounded, like this one does.
Much like with the previous stories, skeptics believe that these so-called Chupacabras that have been recently sighted in Texas are actually coyotes or dogs with mange, while others believe that people are purposely cross-breeding the two together, to essentially create faux Chupacabras.
Is it just me, or is this little guy kind of adorable? I want one. I really want one. And I'm totally up for taking on the risk that he might rip open my chest and feed on my heart.
