I know y'all are all pretty busy, but I'm pretty conversant with lots of kinds of animals, and I wanted to let you know... The first 'chupa' photograph (above) is definitely an owl. The spikes aren't hair but feathers.
The 'chupa' run over on the side of the road (below) is a chow cross with mange. I've seen dogs looking exactly this way in veterinarian world, where I work. Note the semi-haired ( not clean ) feet. Just thought I'd let you know.

Aaron Murphy writes: Here is a picture of a chupa carcass I found while out in Nebraska
rummaging through old farms and abandoned missile silos. Originally, it
was at the entrance of a gate in a sink hole out by an abandoned silo.
Inside the silo were all sorts of salamanders, frogs and snakes. Otherwise,
the silos were pretty empty except for this carcass, which just about
scared me to death when I saw it. I took it out into the sun to get a good
picture of it, then I left. I didn't want to find out what else might be
lurking down below.
Another Chupacabra?? Here is the story from Michael White:
An unknown animal was run over in Dequincy (a town about 10 miles north of us.) Someone took pictures of the animal and sent them to "The Dequincy News" ( A small bi-weekly paper) After reading the article my friend took interest and called to see what happened to the body. The paper told them that "for all they knew, it's still out on the road." Immediately my friends went out and found what was left of it (I think it had been out there a couple of weeks by this time.) One of them still has the remains. Then they found the woman who took the original photos and made copies of these. (the B&W in the paper isn't a great picture.) Then I showed up...
I immediately went to the library and got on the internet to dig up what I could on the Chupacabra. I was overwhelmed by the amount of reports and the variations of descriptions and experiences, so I focused on the connecting facts and the earlier reports which seemed alot more credible. One of the common elements of many of the early reports was that it contained lots of hair, and that it had a "baboon face". In the Dequincy article, (which is only a paragraph long) There in print was the term "baboon face" again, this to me definitely meant that this could very well be the Chupacabra. Upon talking to another Phenomenon buff I was told that it sounded alot like a legendary creature known as "The Plum Creek Creature", also from Louisiana. I still need to check more into that. Below is the article, word for word...
Additional information: About the size of a large St. Bernard. The face is
like skin with a baboon shape. The limbs seem very small and frail for such a
large animal. It had no tail. It seems to have large shoulder-blades, and
shoulders. I am working to find a good place to have some of the bones sent for
analysis. Posted 8/20/97.

From a video of a TV station report in San Antonio of a captured Chupacabra on
Farmers land. Here is the supporting E-Mail message from the reporter
another suggested photo of a Chupacabra. Submitted Dec 3, 1996 by Dave who
claims his cat Gomez dragged it in! :-) Actually this is a photo of the "Batratspidercrab"
monster from the movie "The Angry Red Planet."
A little art imitating life? David Seffren says: "Here is a picture of a chupa I spotted in Rhinelander, WI. Just after I took this picture the thing devoured a small child. Unfortunately, this was the last picture on the roll and by the time I loaded the next roll, the chupa had disappeared into the parallel dimension from which it came. In respect of the memory of that child -snif- I think you should really put this up on the page. -snif snif- At the least to prevent this type of tragedy from happening again. Keith, do it for ... for the child ... for all the children ! I gotta go now, I'm dripping tears all over the keyboard." Me thinks David has an imagination!
suggested photo of a Chupacabra, as documented by this
attached E-Mail. Nice halloween costume!
Hey, fellow Coast to Coast listeners and remote viewers - Did you wait too long to call Absolutely Fresh Flowers for Mother's Day? - Like Gabriels's lips approaching the horn, is that tear about to run down your mother's craggy face - Well don't despair, have I got a deal for you!
You've all heard of that famous Christmas Gift, the Chia Pet.
Well, now you can give your mother the gift that says, "I love you MAN!", the Chupa Pet. Yes, the Chupa Pet! This two piece set comes complete with the infamous and exotic La Chupacabra and the companion Goat.
Just pour the included deep red liquid fertilizer into the goat and watch La Chupracabra go to work sucking the goat dry! As the fertilizer is ingested into the Chupa's body it will instantly begin to grow the tiny, genetically-altered cacti implanted on the surface. In no time at all these cacti will give your Chupa's skin that authentic Lizard-like look!
Just think how amazed your Mom will be when she receives this once-in -a-lifetime gift. She'll never forget this Mother's Day. So call now and call often at 1-goa-tsu-cker, that's 1-goatsucker to send it off to Mom today. And remember Father's Day is not far off, so order one for him too! Chupa Pet - the gift that says it all!!!!!

TIMELINE and Information
TIMELINEBy Lawrie Williams
"The world's 3 species of blood-sucking bats live predominantly in the warm climates of Latin America. Similar recent cases have emerged from Peureto Rico, Costa Rica and El Salvador."
"Puerto Rico harbors a number of military animal research laboratories."
"Seeing either the creature or moving lights in the sky has led to speculation that the chupacabras might be from outer space."
"The New Jersey Devil adheres to descriptions of physical appearence as well as the nature of the wounds. Puncture wounds are often left resembling the classic vampire bite."
"Very large, slanted, glowing red eyes. Face is flat, perhaps simian-like, body some say is covered with spotted skin "like a frog's" or has "spikes on its head and back" with "chicken legs" that have a 3-toed foot about six inches long. Such tracks have been found and photographed in dirt near dead animals. This creature has been seen to hop, or fly, from the ground to a tree or from trees to the ground."
"It attacks so fast, everything from horses to sheep. It sucks out the blood completely."
Compiled from files posted on internet.
There is a body of thought that the bats properly belong in the primate family. If so then these dudes are our rellies. Note that humans are the easiest of prey compared to goats and other animals yet there is no evidence they have hurt anyone.
Also note the similarities with spring heeled jack, jack the ripper and the "devil" of the 15th-17th century that may have sparked the witchunts. Hmmm. There'll be some red Christian faces if this turns out to be so.
