I was driving west on a rual road North and west of macomb, and whayt I thought was a heeler pup or young dog crossed the road headed south, it caught my attention cause it was moveing strange it's back was kinda hunched and the back legs didn't appear to move free kinda blocked at the haunch then I noticed the ears were very large for what I first thought was a Blue Heeler and they were rounded instead of pointed I whisteled at it and it stopped so I got a good look although motled gray black tan speckeled blotched in it's markings, I do not think this was a blue heeler, it has more of the appearence of a afican wild dog except that the snout is longer and not much hair or a real short coat of hair

I think anything is possible it will be very interesting to see what this actually turns out to be. I have heard tales of panthers all my life and never thought they existed in my neck of the woods but I personally have saw 2 first hand in Garvin County one I actually saw up close and personal I think we should be open to what this might actually be.

i almost dismissed it as a blue heeler pup out on a run but the way it moved and those ears realy caught my attention, ya know how pigs run kinda rock front to back kinda like like the back legs apear to be out of porpotion like it was low in the haunch. I wounder if someone had a african wild dog or simular animale as a pet and turned it loose or maybe got away from it gage/kennel?
Do ya think that Panther Creek over by Crinner got it's name by accident. and I too have seen a cougar or panter, Mt Lion on the Washita and if ya get down by Rosedale on the canadian you will not only find cat but also bear tracks.

I may be outting myself as watching too much TV, but, I saw on the History Channel a show about Chupacabra and one that was found in Texas looked alot like the picture in Tecumseh. A few months later I saw on Animal Planet a show about rare breeds of dogs and one of the hairless ones looked A LOT like the "Chupacabra". I think that most of the chupacabra sightings in the US are misidentified dogs. That being said: I do believe there is more out there than we know about. It makes you think though, doesn't it?

I forgot to mention in my earlier posts that I think that it is great that these kids were open minded enough to say "what if?" and brave enough to say something. Because you know that they are getting ragged on worse by people they know than they are here online.

There are stories like this popping up from North Mexico to Oklahoma now. The DNA results from one of these animals from Texas resulted in a unknown DNA...maybe a cyote type dog, but officals were unsure. Sure there are cyotes with mange but they have grey skins, but these "Chupacabre" mixes are black with a hunch back, long back legs, short front legs, large pointed ears, with a pig looking snout and canine fangs. However, the creatures are NOT running like dogs...they are hopping similar Kangaroo. A police officer in Texas caught one of these things on video running down the road and it looked back. And when it looked back, you could tell it was not a Dog or anything like it. It looked more like a pig's head. Nice to see evolution right in front of our eyes.

Seems a mangy racoon was caught up near Tulsa this year. I'm glad it's mange and not rabies. If the mange was bad enough the sores on their backsides would be painful enough to cause a hopping gait? We need to get scientists and wildlife veterinarians to pay some attention to this. I believe we are having a mange epidemic, but I am not educated, gotta have an education to know stuff anymore.

Pam, it dont take no edu~macation to have good old fashion horse sense. do it,,,,,lol,,ya know city or towns people across the country for decades have dumped there un wanted dogs in the country some live i think most die from starvation or dehydration or gun shot wounds from prowling around homes and barns or livestock. But some make it and it is possiable that there has been alot of cross breeding going on out thar in them woods, so a new breed is likly. what is more scary than a new wild to would be a new pitviper just think what if some dumbass turned loose there burmesse python and it cross breed with a pitviper , this thing would make a anaconda look like a fishing worm

The real El Chupacabra is nothing like a dog type or anything you people are talking about. The real El Chupacabra is a reptile like hominoid creature that hops around in the dark sucking the blood out of live stock. The real Chupacabra is a 3 foot hominoid that hops on 2 feet with smooth white skin, short front legs and long fang teeth. They only come out at night and they scream like panthers or mountain lions.

I've seen it once before behind the football field, wasn't too sure what it was so I brushed it off as a nasty looking dog. Can't really explain why it stands on its back feet tho...
