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

On Boing Boing:Chupacabra poaching in Kentucky - Boing Boing

Boing Boing picked up on the fact that the so-called "chupacabra" killed in Kentucky was an innocent animal, not some mad crazed monster. Several comments were left, many along the lines of what I mentioned in my earlier post about this sad episode, as in "don't know what it is, so's I best kill the damn thing" mentality.

A link left by one commentator is a sad reminder that this penchant for shooting at what one thinks is a "chupacabra" could be a dog, etc.
