Is the mysterious chupacabra living in the woods behind Saint George’s Hospital in Maryland?
After several employees captured cell phone photo and video evidence of the odd-looking creature, described by one worker as a “kangaroo, dog, rat mixed”, the employees decided to trap the animal to get a closer look (they later released it).
Akin to Bigfoot or the Loch Ness Monster, the chupacabra is a mysterious and, likely, fictional creature.
But, alas, like many previous chupacabra sightings, this creature is a decidedly less mythical beast. The Maryland Department of Natural Resources identified the creature as a fox with mange, a skin disease with symptoms like “hair loss, skin wrinkling and formation of scabs.”
