Whatever he is, he's pretty cool looking. Would love to have a camera and get a pic of him closer.

This is a canine with mange.. its been proven.. .. the poor thing has mange so badly it is barely recognizable.. don't buy into such mythological mumbojumbo.. this poor creature is in excrutiating pain, emaciated, and probably close to death if it is making itself noticed and out of hiding.. poor thing.

The reason no one has ever captured a real chupacabra or gotten clear footage of one is that these creatures are shape-shifters. When not in their animal form, chupacabra prefer to live in Washington, where most hold public office or work as lobbyists. In our nation's capitol they can live undisturbed and even their most predatory behavior is ignored. After all, blood suckers will be blood suckers, won't they?
