SEE: Did this Texas family just catch the Chupacabra?

Chupacabra caughtWether you believe in the existence of el Chupacabra or not, you've probably heard of it. I grew up being terrified of tales of it as a child. It was described to me as some sort of gruesome creature that feeds off the blood of goats and cows. Yikes! Thank goodness none of my neighbors were goats or cows.

Throughout the years I've heard of chupacabra sightings, but now a family in Ratcliffe, Texas say they have captured what everyone thought was a mythical creature and they have the critter locked up in a cage and are keeping it alive. Jackie Stock and Arlen Parma caught the creature they believe to be a baby chupacabra on Sunday night. Ready to take a look.

ChupacabraWhatever that thing is it's pretty creepy. Its back is hairless, it's got long claws, lots of teeth and growls. When Parma found the alleged chupacabra, he called Stock over to take a look and she said, "Bubba, that looks like a baby chupacabra." I'm not sure how she came to that conclusion, but Parma knows that whatever they caught isn't a racoon or anything he's ever seen before. He says, "A coon don't make that noise, or a possum. What makes that noise? I guess a chupacabra does, I don't know."

Parma and Stock are keeping whatever it is they caught and feeding it cat food and corn while they try to get confirmation of whether they have a chupacabra on their hands or not. Perhaps they should try giving it the blood of a cow or goat to see what happens. I'm kidding. I am no chupacabra expert by any means. I'm sure cat food will do just fine.

I certainly don't know what that thing is, but an expert that saw pictures seems to think it is some sort of canine with mange. We'll see.
