The past couple of nights Jim and his wife were kept awake by unearthly howls around their North Carolina farm, leaving them to worry about their livestock’s well-being. Not only did the Newtons lose two goats, but in the mornings their cows were often discovered with bloodied ears.
Their loyal german shepherd, taking matters into his own paws, tore this chupacabras a new one.
How did Mr. Newton know this was a chupacabras? He told James Johnson at yourdailyjournal.com:
“I looked it up on the Internet before I called anyone, and sure enough, if you look it up online, you’ll see this looks exactly like the chupacabras people have been spotting,” Newton said. “On the Internet, a man actually shot one on his porch.”
Thank goodness for the internet! Nobody ever lies on the internet!
He’s referencing a story out of Nelson Conuty, Kentucky where some local yokel blasted a chupacabras that turned out to be a baby raccoon with mange. POOR BABY!
With the summer months fast approaching, be prepared for many more chupacabras sightings and encounters. Mange, a common condition caused by mites, is curable. Warm and humid conditions are perfect for infestation, causing much misery for our four-legged friends, and cryptozoologists trying to tune into that tenuous signal above the noise from mainstream news.
