Raccoon, not Chupacabra, found in Texas...

lil-chupacabraA hairless raccoon was determined to be the identity of the strange corpse found on January 13th on a Texas golf course.  State biologist Jennifer barrows believes that the dead animal, which the people of Wise county had been claiming to be the legendary chupacabra, is nothing more than a very young male raccoon.


"It was a raccoon, no doubt about it," said Jennifer Barrow, the biologist. "Its feet were a real giveaway. It had long toes, narrow feet ... everything right for a raccoon."


But if it is a raccoon, then how exactly did it lose its hair (thus proving It to be a raccoon and not a bloodsucking monster of Mexican lore)…


Ms. Barrows hypothesized that the raccoon might have died do to the unusual cold snaps that past through Texas earlier in the month.  The dead raccoon then fell into a deep enough puddle of water to submerge it, which is what caused the critter’s hair to fall out. 


Because water makes hair fall out I guess…


"The water actually takes the hair off," said Barrows.  “… A fellow I worked with said he once observed a dead calf, half in water. The half that was in the water didn't have any hair and the part out of the water had hair."


Hmm… a likely story…


It’s always a redneck in a bear suit, or swamp gas combusting, or water making the animals hair fall out when you are dealing with these government types, ain’t it…


But if it was water that made this poor animal’s hair fall out, then how- prey tell- do you explain THIS ODDITY captured in Kentucky three years ago:

Granted, it too is a hairless raccoon, but it does kinda punch a bullet hole in their whole water makes hair fallout story…
