I find no malice in the guys that posted the video, but just honest curiosity. However, what has become of their questions is well on its way to joining the usual media “Chupa” circus.
Sorry but this is another Texas “chupacabra” that translates into, not the traditional spike-haired, bipedal Puerto Rican Chupacabras, but, instead, another American misidentified canid. Or, apparently in this case, a dead procyonid.
While this popped up on YouTube, it is the World Weekly News that has decided to get behind it. Please, consider the source.
