    Banned from Dawg's some are found stalking in Texas

    RATCLIFFE, Texas (KABC) -- A Texas family claims they've captured the elusive "chupacabra," a mythical creature that supposedly attacks livestock. According to legend, chupacabras suck the blood of cows and goats. Although there's never been real evidence the creature exists, sightings of chupacabras have been reported from Latin America to the southern U.S.
    In the back woods of Ratcliffe, a small town in DeWitt County in South Texas, residents are certain they've found the mythical, despicable chupacabra, and this time, it's alive.
    Jackie Stock said her husband caught the creature Sunday night.
    "He called me to come and look, and I said, 'Bubba, that looks like a baby chupacabra,'" said Stock.
    With its hairless back, large claws, countless teeth and ferocious growl, many would say this animal fits the bill.
    "I hunted coons for 20 years with dogs and I ain't never seen nothing looks like that right there," said Arlen Parma, who captured the critter.
    Parma said one of the biggest signs it's not a raccoon is its growl.
    "A coon don't make that noise, or a possum. What makes that noise? I guess a chupacabra does, I don't know," said Parma.
    Most people in DeWitt County are convinced this is the elusive chupacabra, but what do wildlife experts have to say?
    "The animal in the cage as best I can tell from the view was some sort of a small canine," said Brent Ortego, a wildlife diversity biologist with Texas Parks and Wildlife.
    Ortego said a canine can include a coyote, dog, or even a fox. He said the animal most likely has mange, which has caused it to lose its hair. But as for a chupacabra, he thinks otherwise.
    "It's never been proven to be a unique species. It was always something out there that allegedly either caused harm or threatened to cause harm to people or their livestock," said Ortego.
    Chupacabra or not, right now this little guy is staying at the Stock household, living off a diet of cat food and corn, at least until someone can find out what it really is.

    the doctor they interviewed said he thinks its a canine with mange because of the growl. i think that guy is nutz: thats not a dog growl; its a rodent growl. anyone who has worked with female rats has heard it. that thing, whatever it is, is related to large rodents.

    there are these gigantic rodents in Australia and N Zealand that are basically rats the size of beagles. i think that is one that escaped one of those private preserves in TX and went feral. Rodents eat with their hands and growl like that. many also have furless tails that are almost the same length as their bodies.

    they swore it wasn't a racoon, but again only because of the growl. i think they probably do make noises like that when they are really big and sick. i've seen opossums in the wild that def growl like that when a dog looks like its going to get too close, and with the fangs those things have i was glad it growled so i could help drag the dog away.

    his bit about the canine was so much BS. anyone who has been around rodents will recognize the classic traits, especially the use of its hands to hold its food: that is classic rat behavior. that one is bald and mean, so probably sick and starving. maybe rabies.
