“Mysterious Creature”: Not Chupacabra

Submitted by on January 5, 2011 – 12:34 PM7 Comments | 4,793 views


Remember that “mysterious” creature that was found in Kentucky and raised a big debate online whether it was the Chupacabras or not?

Well, let’s just cut the suspense. It was a raccoon. Yup. A raccoon.

I personally have it difficult to understand how someone can look at a picture like the one above and believe it to be something other than a mangy animal. But I guess it happens. I’ve been reading a lot of posts and comments on the photos. Many swear that this is the real deal and go into details describing its teeth, claws and skin.

Unless you find something that looks like this:

Then you pretty much have just found a mangy animal.

PS: That last image is a hoax.

Based in Brooklyn, NY, I write about all things creepy and strange. My book based on the real haunting of Doris Bither (The Entity 1982 movie) will be released soon. Got a question? Drop me a line.

    -It´s a little mystery in yer day, he, he, he… [smoker´s cough]

    Did he miss the fact it´s NOT a mystery? It´s a raccoon.
    A raccoon with a skin problem, poor animal, but no mystery what so ever.

    Stupid, stupid, greedy, human race…

    Looks like a Chupacabra to me.

  • THANK YOU for covering this! Was hoping you would. I can’t believe it’s a hairless raccoon. Not that I thought it was a chupacabra either, but I never imagined raccoons would look so ugly bald. I thought it might be some kind of mega-rat.
