My ex-husband's family is from San Juan, Puerto Rico and they told me about the Chupacabra back then-that was about 31 years ago. This is not a new thing. However, the original Chupacabra description is much more reptilian-it's only recently I've started seeing photos of the dog with mange things. What's up with that?

This area and the Harjo slews are ripe with legends of strange creatures and lights. Heard the stories growing up. And there were many reported strange lights in the summer of 1979, just ask local law enforcement that worked back then.
Then, if any locals can remember the Kalka's Quick Stop on Walnut st. they had that little diplay case by the register with pictures of the remains of a "mystery creature". Those pictures were there for years before the place closed down. All good fun and local flavor.

It's a coyote with bad case of mange. I've seen plenty of them on our family farm in eastern Ok, totally hairless except for a tuft of hair on the tip of their tail. If there are more pictures in the future, it should be darker, as the skin is unprotected from the sun's rays, much like how we tan on unprotected skin. It's front legs are drawn up in the photo, since it's running across the road. The tracks shown in the news report are not canine paw prints, but are probably racoon tracks.

If you look real close you can see sasquatch running behind it with a leash.

Sasquatch hates it when chupacabra gets off it's leash and has to chase it down in this summer heat.

PDubbb ... Guess what? UFO only means Unidentified Flying Object! Doesn't mean a space ship. UFO's are seen everyday! Guess this is something you don't know or understand. Not a cent was paid to anyone.

My names Mark F. And I'm with a local paranormal team and we saw this online and thought I would see if 'Dad' would be interested in e-mailing me. We investigate different paranormal claims around Oklahoma and would love to see if we could possibly figure out what exactly this could be. Maybe possibly investigate the surrounding area for trace evidence or even the creature itself. If you feel up for it please fill free to email me at and I will give you the details about our group and what exactly it is we do. As for all the others that think this is a joke and waste of time why even spend the time reading this article if you weren't somewhat interested in it? Don't think it right just to slander someone for something the saw and reported.

I walk my dog around the Tecumseh High School when I am in town.. and I have seen this dog/coyote as well. It was looking for food in the football stadium parking lot. I am sure that it is just a small coyote that needs food (it was very skinny) and has a horrible case of mange... because it was definately bald. I think it is hilarious that these kids think its a chupacabre.. almost funnier because when I was describing it to someone after my walk.. I said it looked like the pictures people have of chupacabres. LOL

There was another urban legend like this not that long ago. Dog with skin disease. That's all it is. That "chupacabra" looks just like the "chupacabra" in the other photo. Except the latter had been dead a few days.

This is like one of my favorite animals in the whole world. It is breeded for it magical power, and is like one of the strongest animals ever. I want to apologize for my chupacabra getting out of its pen, and having my Bigfoot chase after it. God what would you do in a situation like this.

I think it is a shame that you make such a statement. You should be proud to have gone to that school. It is SAD that people take such a fun story and make it out to be something that it's not!!
