On Sept 1, 2007, ABC News did an article on a chupacabra found which a woman from Texas found dead outside her ranch in Cuero, Texas. …apparently this is only one of three ugly fanged creatures found. She saved the body for DNA testing, and believes that it is what has been responsible for sucking the blood from her chickens (chupacabra actually means goat sucker in spanish). Vets claim that it is probably just a strange breed of dog. The pic on the left is from the Texan woman holding her photo of the found chupacabra.

For those who don’t know, the chupacabra is a mythical beast which is said to drink the blood of livestock (hence the name goat sucker). Sightings are prevalent in Mexico and Puerto Rico. Some sightings report it as resembling a reptile, others claim it looks like a dog or a wolf. Forked tongues and wings are also sometimes associated with the chupacabra. Drawing you’ll find on the internet make the chupacabra out to look like a weird alien creature.

So, is the chupacabra legend real? Based on fact? It appears it might be from this photo!
