In the beginning of things men were animals and animals men. ~ Algonquin saying

"For instance, on the planet Earth, man had always assumed that he was more intelligent than dolphins because he had achieved so much — the wheel, New York, wars and so on — whilst all the dolphins had ever done was muck about in the water having a good time. But conversely, the dolphins had always believed that they were far more intelligent than man — for precisely the same reasons." ~ The Hitchiker's Guide to the Galaxy

Another "Chupacabra" Story: Kentucky Man Kills "Chupie"

These stories make me sad; they are not the "legendary chupacabra" the spiny backed, blood sucking, high jumping, glowing red eyed creatures originating from Puerto Rico, but clearly some kind of "real" (mundane) animal that has mange, or some sort of mutation or disease. The photos in the following article are similar to several others that we've seen from the U.S. in news items and Monster Quest, etc. -- mostly from the south and south west but elsewhere as well.

The recent episode, from Kentucky, invovles the shooting of one of these so-called chupacabras. I found Mark Cothren's (the Kentucky witness) reason for killing the creature sadly bemusing:
"Mark Cothren shot the animal as it walked into his front yard because he did not recognise it."
Don't know what it is, kill it, goddamnit!
