Another "Chupacabras" has been found in Texas
Watch the report and judge for yourself. I'm saying its another dead dog or coyote. You can read more thoughts and opinions over at Cryptomundo.
As someone who has spent the past couple of years studying the phenomenon and its socio-historic origins first hand here in Puerto Rico, I must confess to being confounded. The further the myth spreads from its source on this Caribbean island, the more removed from the original description it becomes. It's very dog-like in Mexico and the southwestern United States, bat-like in parts of Central and South America... It's become something of a Rorschach for Latino cultures and probably will continue as it assumes this new wave of popularity with non-Latinos north of the border.
