X-ray technician Joe Livermore said "It's got a rat tail and a head like a deer. I don't know what it is." Even though no one knew what it was, they knew what to call it: "Prince Chupa," after the mysterious vampire chupacabra (the world's best-known monster after Bigfoot and Nessie). The animal has been tentatively identified as a fox with mange. About a month ago a Texas boy shot and killed a weird-looking animal he claims is a chupacabra. Carter Pope saw the four- legged, dog-like animal walking across an open field before he opened fire: "It had no hair at all on it," he said. "Its back legs were shriveled up. I honestly think it's a chupacabra." DNA results are pending, though it's likely a coyote or dog. And just a few weeks ago a strange animal was found on a rural Minnesota road, described as “ghostly white and hairless, its neck bloated out of proportion with the rest of its limp body" and “half human." There was a lot of speculation about the monster (which turned out to be a badger), including, you guessed it: chupacabra. Earlier chupacabras found in Texas and elsewhere have all turned out to be known animals like dogs and coyotes. [More at site] [Thanks to Diana Cammack for the lead] Listen to 'Strange Days...
