    I think it was probably just Glenn Beck, out on one of his nightly forays. ;)

    Their fears arose after a local animal control officer shot two canine-like animals in Hood County, Texas.

    Hmm. Could they have been dogs?

    Is that "shot" or "shot at"? If it's "shot", then there ought to be some carcasses or blood or something.

    I saw this on some fake ass news show once... It was just a shaved coyote.
    I remember in high school some dork would wear a Chupacabra tee shirt. :D

    I believe.....that the Weekly World News has become a little too influential--remember boys and girls those shopping market tabloids are not real news they are just Mad magazines for adults.

    I remember seeing a "goat sucker" once though--then she was hauled off in handcuffs because that kind of thing is illegal in most states.

    I think I saw something on tv a couple years ago about the chupacabra, very similar to this story. It ended up being some dogs with a terrible skin condition...

    Thank you for posting the light, funny tangential thread that used to be more prominent on MacRumors. It is a needed break from the iPhone rants.

    And no, this is another Loch Ness monster.

    There is no problem monster, the media has blown disfigured dogs out of proportion. They are photographed the wrong way. All dogs can be made to look bad if you hold them the wrong way.

    A few dead sheep mean nothing. Sheep die all the time for no reason, but rarely die when there is good grazing and they don't have to run around looking for a reliable source of food.

    We are working on having more good grazing land and the seeds should turn into grass in only a few years. We will not take down the fence to those green pastures next door to ours because our sheep are not allowed to eat that species of grass because the farmer will not pay us to to be able to eat his grass.

    I was at Loch Ness last month and I took a photo. Judge for yourself.
