Chupacabra Sighting Starts Search for Chupacabra Herd – The creature also known as the “goat-sucking beast” had been sighted in Hood Country, Texas. Those who have seen the animal said that it is quite an ugly creature with a mix of dear, coyote and dog like features.

Animal control officer Frank Hackett earlier this week killed an unknown creature which he describe as “one of the ugliest” creatures he had ever seen. Another creature of the same description had also been spotted and killed just several miles away from there. People suspect that it can either be a really ugly coyote, a hairless dog or some says it is indeed the Chupacabra.

Earlier this week, animal control officer Frank Hackett shot and killed what was unquestionably one of the ugliest creatures to ever walk the planet. That much we know. What’s less clear is whether or not the departed creature was the elusive goat-sucking beast.

As defined by Virtue Science, the name literally translates to “goat sucker.” Legend states that the beast would attack goats and suck their blood. If you can relate it to the most prominent relative of it nowadays is the ugly version of “Twilight”‘s infamous vampire Edward Cullen.

Here is the description and definition of Chupacabra according to Wikipedia.

The chupacabras (Spanish pronunciation: [t?upa?ka??as], from chupar “to suck” and cabra “goat”, literally “goat sucker”), is a legendary cryptid rumored to inhabit parts of the Americas. It is associated more recently with sightings of an allegedly unknown animal in Puerto Rico (where these sightings were first reported), Mexico, and the United States, especially in the latter’s Latin American communities. The name comes from the animal’s reported habit of attacking and drinking the blood of livestock, especially goats. Physical descriptions of the creature vary. Eyewitness sightings have been claimed as early as 1990 in Puerto Rico, and have since been reported as far north as Maine, and as far south as Chile. It is supposedly a heavy creature, the size of a small bear, with a row of spines reaching from the neck to the base of the tail. Biologists and wildlife management officials view the chupacabras as a contemporary legend.

Authorities in Texas have not yet confirmed whether the creature are indeed Chupacabras. The DNA samples of the two killed beast had already been sent to DNA labs for identification and by then we never know what creatures they are yet.
