The Facts

Chupacabra reportedly spotted in Lake Jackson

Local wildlife experts remain unconvinced

Posted: Monday, July 11, 2011 2:00 am

LAKE JACKSON — When Jack Crabtree walks out of his house in the morning, he expects to see grass, trees and neighboring homes, he does not expect to see a chupacabra.

Yet, when he walked outside July 4, he is sure that’s what he saw. What’s more, he took some pictures.

    Chupacabras are not dogs or coyotes. I witnessed one 3 years ago in Michigan and it was a highly unusual looking creature. Perhaps the public feels safer thinking a dog/coyote like animal running around their backyard is the explanation for the chupacabra. Let me tell you people something-you are wrong!!!

    My wife and I saw one in Ohio about 2 weeks ago. We were driving over Alum Creek in Delaware, Ohio when one was on the side of the raod. It then ran/leaped off into the woods. I was not sure what it was until I saw an article about Chupacabra the other day. The images in this article are the same type animal my wife and I saw... Large dog-like, long legs, hairless, over-sized head, pointed ears, dark Grey in color with dark spots,

    After some research I am convinced what we saw was indeed a Chupacabra.

    To MarkTheViking: Shy Pond is one place the Chupacabra likes to take a sip of water, even though blood is his (guess it could be a female) main choice of hydration. The Loch Ness monster you ask? Well, that large specimen was living a comfortable life in Shy Pond, that is until the Chupacabra showed himself/herself to the Loch Ness. That is about the time this huge beast was found floating in the lake/pond, and to top it off, the huge beast looked like it had the life sucked out of it. Go figure...maybe Loch Ness blood is tastier to the Chupacabra?

    It's real. Seen it once in my backyard after I had not mowed for a month. Luckily I had my goats and cattle put away for the evening.

    “It’s a demonic creature that is active at night,” Crabtree said.

    VooDoo! Man, you are way off base. Definitely astronaut material.[wink]

    I'm a 'Chupa chaser. I've had good luck putting a small goat in the trap....they love goat blood. They are very elusive and cunning.... very difficult to trap. They never attack humans, but I would'nt be out at night walking my goat. [wink]

    A) Can't believe this is in the news section. B) Jack needs his head examined. C) This is a coyote with mange, and based on the fact he is wandering around in the sun, rabies too. D) So what is the latest on The Loch Ness Monster?[sad]

    Chupacabra...not so much. Looks like a familiar sight...severe mange and malnutrition of a common coyote.
