It's officially chupacabra season in Texas

Hood County, Texas has had a rash of chupacabra sightings lately. Two mysterious, mammalian corpses have been found since last week, perplexing animal control officers and raising the hopes of chupamaniacs everywhere. It's the most cryptacular time of the year!

David Hewitt shot one of the creatures on Friday after it began moseying towards his cattle. Here's his testimony:

I had no idea what it could be [...] From a distance, he looked like a hairless chihuahua, only much bigger [...] From all indications, it seemed to be a chupacabra. [...] The claws, toenails, nothing like I've seen on a coyote. Skinny, pointed tail; sure looks like a possum to me. Never seen any kind of animal that doesn't have hair on it.

Mangy coyote, shmangy shmyote. The summer of the goat-suckers is upon us.
