Goat-Sucking Chupacabra or Hairless Raccoon Terrorizing Kentucky (Video)

December 28, 2010

(ChattahBox US News)—The mysterious legend of the goat-sucking creature El Chupacabra is alive and well in the wilds of Kentucky. A hideous hairless animal resembling the mythical Chupacabra beast had the misfortune of wandering into the front yard of a Kentuckian earlier in the month, who promptly shot the creature for the crime of being bald in the winter. Mark Cothren of Lebanon Junction, Kentucky is now famous for either bagging a blood-sucking Chupacabra monster the size of a large house cat or possibly a raccoon with a bad case of mange.

Whether the hairless creature now on display in Mark Cothren’s rural Kentucky property is really a goat-sucking Chupacabra is open to debate, but it sure has captured the attention of his neighbors, as well as the international press.

“Mark Cothren shot and killed an animal on Dec. 18 because he said he feared what it was, since he did not recognize it. He said the animal walked from the woods onto his front yard around 3 p.m.”

‘”I was like: ‘every animal has hair, especially this time of year!’ What puzzled me is how something like that could survive through a winter with no hair,” Cothren said.”

‘”Everybody is getting very curious, you know. [The] phone is ringing off the hook. It’s kind of a mystery right now,” Cothren said.”

“Cothren described the creature as having large ears, whiskers, a long tail, and about the size of a house cat. He says many people have tried to guess what the animal may be. He said he’s heard anything from raccoon to a dog to the legendary Chupacabra.”

The legend of the Chupacabra also caused quite a stir earlier in the year in Hood County, Texas after two hairless and ugly creatures were shot by a local rancher and an animal control officer. “It was ugly, real ugly, I’m not going to tell no lie on that one,” said animal control officer Frank Hack. But authorities believe the creatures were probably diseased coyotes.

Meanwhile, Cothren is keeping his very own Chupacabra on ice, as it were, until an official from the state Department of Fish and Wildlife Resources arrives to examine the creature.

Until then, the legend of the goat-sucking Chupacabra lives on.
