Chupacabra Makes Itself Known in Oklahoma

The infamous chupacabra has weaseled its way back into the news again. Usually spotted in Puerto Rico and Texas, the chupacabra is now being sighted in Tecumseh, Oklahoma.

A group of teenagers spotted this creature in the woods behind Tecumseh High School. Ryan Craighead. one of the witnesses, described the creature:
“It’s got long back legs and its front legs are small. It has a long tail and doesn’t have any fur.” The teens also have a cell phone picture to support their claim.

Oklahoma City Zoo Education Director Teresa Randall had a few things to say about this reported sighting. “I think it would be realistic to have a coyote-dog-mix with pretty good case of mange…It is a mythological legend that’s taken on a life of its own.”
But common sense and logic seems to fail those who spotted this canid-type creature.

“I don’t know. I’m thinking it’s the chupacabra, but people say it’s not real. I don’t know,” said Craighead.

I would just like people to remember a dog with mange and or hairless looks very weird, weird to the point where it can be unidentifiable, causing people to think they are seeing something that isn’t known. As far as my personal research goes, all reports of these dog-like “chupacabras” that have been killed in Texas, have been tested and came back as some type of coyote/dog/wolf hybrid, just like Teresa Randall said in the article. This is no different.

In fact if you read original reports of the chupacabra, the ones that originated from Puerto Rico, this mythological creature has a totally different appearance. It has large red eyes, it stands on two feet, it has a reptilian look to it, a row of spikes that run down its back, it can jump and/or fly, it has a forked tongue like that of a snake and leaves behind a sulfuric stench. It looks nothing like these dog hybrids.

About Bobby the Paranormal Skeptic
Bobby Nelson is a skeptic, writer, and co-host of Strange Frequencies Radio. His personal blog can be found online at www.porkrhine.com At one time, Bobby was what could be called a "true believer" in paranormal phenomenon. Having been an active investigator of the paranormal for 12 years with several different Toledo based teams, he has examined countless claims of activity. But years worth of research and investigation proved to him that the evidence for these claims are generally lacking and, furthermore, the vast majority of so-called scientific paranormal investigators were using improper methodologies which caused them to draw both false and misleading conclusions.
