Last month we posted that chupacabras are probably just mangy coyotes . However Mark Cothren of Lebanon Junction Kentucky might disagree, he shot and killed an animal that looks remarkably like the mythical "goat sucker". However Mark's chupacabra has whiskers and is much smaller than a coyote. Wave3.com has the complete story .
Mark Cothren shot and killed an animal on Dec. 18 because he said he feared what it was, since he did not recognize it. He said the animal walked from the woods onto his front yard around 3 p.m. "I was like: 'every animal has hair, especially this time of year!' What puzzled me is how something like that could survive through a winter with no hair," Cothren said.
It looks like a raccoon with a severe case of mange to me.
