Over the last few years there have been reports out of the state of Texas of odd animals that some believe to be the legendary Chupacarba. The legendary cryptid who’s name translates to “goat sucker” is said to inhabit Puerto Rico and is described as being reptile like with sharp spines along its back standing approx 3-4 feet tall. The creature is also said to have a forked tongue and large fangs used to suck the blood from its victims along with unusual glowing red eyes. Although many witnesses and sighting reports from Texas continue to call the strange canine type creature being seen there as a Chupacabra this designation is simply not accurate. The animals being sighted and reported about in Texas and elsewhere around the Southern United States are described as hairless dog type creatures that exhibit no likeness to that of the legendary creature from Puerto Rico.
According to Houston animal control experts the creatures being reported as Chupacabra in Texas may simply be exotic animal owners cross breading pets. It is believed that people are attempting to cross breed animals looking to create an Chupacabra like animal in an attempt to cash in on a cash prize of $10,000 being offered for finding the legendary creature. Houston animal control officials said that rumors have been abound of people attempting to breed dogs to look similar to the so called “direwolves” from the show Game of Thrones. These animals could be hazardous to humans according to pest control experts but they are more or less out looking for food and are more hazardous to your pets.
A resident of Cuero , Texas Phylis Canion captured the animal many believe to be or at least insists on labeling as the Texas Chupacabra. The animal was killed on her ranch and she believed it had been attacking and killing her chickens. Below are picture of the odd looking canine type creature that she killed and that fits the basic description of what is being called the Chupacabra in Texas.
