Chupacabra Unmasked As Coyote

You may remember when a Texas woman claimed to have found the head of an actual blood-sucking chupacabra, and promptly set up a business selling tee shirts marking her find.

The mystery is solved, thanks to modern science.

Turns out that her find is: just another coyote. Texas State University biologists, working from DNA samples provided by KENS-TV, celebrated Halloween by unmasking the dead critter as pure "Texas Coyote."

No one is quite sure why the body was hairless, but one thing is sure: Coyote, that Native American trickster, once again has the last laugh.

  1. It's not a coyote. It's a rare Xoloitzcuintli or Mexican Hairless Dog.
