Texas "Chupacabra" on Faux News website

© AP
Aug. 31: Phylis Canion holds the head of what she is calling a Chupacabra at her home in Cuero, Texas.

Found this on the Fox, or, more accurately, Faux, News website after signing a petition to the other shills, er, news networks not to follow Fox's call to war powered solely as it is with pure lies. Click the pic or the title to read the article.

This lady is supposedly an experienced big game hunter with due diligence time spent in Africa. Now she's in Texas and found three of these creatures on her ranch. She thinks they're mighty odd. They do indeed look a bit odd. They're not very big, only 40 lbs or so. I don't see any blood-sucking apparatus. :-) There are some other clear photos on the site.

Looks like a dog to me... what do you think?

I suppose her alleged stature should hold some weight, but, having said that, I should note that I do believe there's more BS in cryptozoology than there is in even UFO studies in that any story, even the most obvious and poorly-executed hoax is given the red carpet treatment, to the point where it has become rather annoying, even from people who profess to be zoologists, although that's somewhat of a generalization. But not much.

Hey , check it out, you never know...
