Did you hear about the dead chupacabras in Hood County?

They just look like ugly dead dogs to me. I feel sorry for them, actually.

One of the guys in the video said it wasn't scared of him at all. Uh, maybe it was just a dog, you think? I mean, they didn't describe it as a snarling, feral beastie. I'm kind of suspicious that a pair of mangey bald coyotes got popped. Then again, coyotes would have been scared of the people.

Yep. I think them's dogs.

Demodectic mange. Probably a young coyote or fox. I can't tell from the photos I've seen, though. The raccoons they've found hairless have a genetic anomaly. Sucks to be any of them.

agreed, looks like mangy canids to me, too.

News reports said they were coyote/dog hybrids with skin conditions and mange... according to their DNA!
Still wouldn't want to run into one here in Decatur... ugly cusses!

The news said that according to some animal expert they were a coyote/dog hybrid with some kind of skin mites that caused their hair to fall out.

Actually, the coyotes in Southern California where I live are not afraid of people at all. They saunter through my backyard in full daylight and saunter out slowly if I make a loud noise. They truly are ugly creatures, perhaps dogs, but that hairless quality???
