    I almost fell off my chair when I read "that's no face; thats CHRIS HANSEENN!"

    p.s., on a school computer so I'll check out the video later.

    Yeah, I saw that. I've been sort of following the stories on chupacabra. My guess is that it is either that the coyotes in that area are affected by bad case of mange (see link here), or there is an unknown species of hairless wild dogs. I think it is more likely the latter.

    This is a similar find to many other recent Chupacabra sightings/ findings. That Monster Quest show on History channel had a number of pieces similar t this on it. If it is an unknown species of hairless wild dog, that wouldnt rule out it being the goat sucker of legend. Seems most evidence similar to this one suggests some pretty different anatomy on top of being hairless.

    Without question. They've been filmed and found many times before. This is nothing new. If people want to call a hairless dog a chupacabra then I guess it is one, but it's a bit different from the large, screaming, red-eyed, two legged bat-winged vampire creature of legend...

    I'm on a (slow) public computer, so I can't watch the video at the moment, but in reading the comments it seems that this is another hairless mangy canine, perhaps with a weird jaw. This guys have been seen, photographed, and even filmed several times before, and each time there's a small flurry of "Chupacabra?!" stories, because apparently no one (besides a few of the people who've posted here) remember the last time this happened. When a body is discovered, analysis always--so far as I know--reveals it to be a coyote or dog with mange.

    On another note, the first time I remember this happening, there was some truly ignorant, and quite humorous, speculations on what it could be. One person was insisting that it was a musk deer, or something similar (a small, primitive deer with short, fang-like tusks). Never mind that the body obviously had paws and not hooves. Doesn't hold a candle to people saying that the Montauk Monster was a turtle without its shell, though. Please.

    They'll know for sure what it is and isn't when they look at the cranium and the rest of the bones.
