¿ Es Un Chupacabras ? Mmmaybe…

chupa_smileNot much of a story out of the realms of Quetzalcoatl and Tezcatlipoca, but hot damn the photos are top notch.

El Heraldo1 reports some hunting dogs, down in San Andrés in the state of Tuxtla, alerted their masters to the presence of the cryptid. Clearly the encounter didn’t work out for the poor beast.

According to Eduardo Castellanos, this isn’t the first sighting of a chupacabras, or nahual, in the area.

I have the feeling there is a “super mange” affecting large areas of the southwest and Mexico. These poor animals look like they had it bad.

I believe you are seeing a “cute” raccoon without it’s fur.

I think the upturned tip of the nose might identify it as a very mange eaten coatimundi – a raccoon relative ranging from Mexico to South America.

Or possum or really any sort of medium sized varmint animal. You take the fur off your house cat and leave it to bake in Mexican sun for a few days (Note: don’t do that), you’ll wind up with something that looks like a leathery hell monkey.
