Legendary Chupacabra Found? (Video)

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.”

It isn't a chupacabra, it is a hairless mexican dog whose other name is txoloitzquintle, these dogs mainly feed on dead animals, roots or fruit on the ground, what it might eat alive is a snake or lizard, they are super intelligent and loving, I have one, she is 17 now, my lovely one.

To whoever wrote this article, I wouldn't be too quick to dismiss Sasquatch as a fictional creature.
