Chupacabras In New Mexico?

by Jimmy Akin

in Science

Chupacabra3bThe rush of people with guns discovering chupacabra-like creatures continues . . . this time in New Mexico.

On Albuquerque’s West Mesa a gentleman was out shooting when he "kicked [a chupacabra-like creature] out of the dirt." (Not word on whether it was kicked out with a foot or a bullet.)

Pictures of the creature ran on a local TV channel, whose story (including video) is

ONLINE HERE.

Chupacabra3The dessicated (but apparently not fossilized) creature appears to have wings, a tail, a long snout that some have compared to a horn, and lips that are described as "sponge-like."

It was taken to the New Mexico Game & Fish Commission for identification, and the TV channel promised to annouce what they concluded it was, but so far as I can tell they haven’t posted a follow-up report on their site.

They did say in general terms that the game & fish officials thought this was a creature that lived under the sea a long time ago.

This raises a question, though: If it’s old enough to date from when New Mexico was underwater, why ain’t it fossilized?

If it’s more recent, how did it get there? Did it survive in a lake that dried up? Did someone or some animal catch it elsewhere and transport it? Are any of these things still alive?

Maybe . . . someday . . . the answers will surface.

(Cowboy hat tip to the reader who sent this in!)

Its not an ocean skate. They don’t have their eyes on the same side as their mouths. Nor do they have long legs like this thing has.

On top of that when sea creatures are buried in the mud they do not become mummies! THe sediments they are buried in are WET! All you find of sea creatures is mainly bones – and they are fossilized. This creature is a dried out mummy. Someone needs to ask those state game guys WHO THERE ARE WORKING FOR AND WHO THEY TAKE THEIR ORDERS FROM.

It resembles somewhat a lot of the sea-creature hoax I read once from book of mysteries and paranormal activities. I wish I had a resemblance for you, but I haven’t seen it online anywhere. This thing is practically identical to it. If you want, I can check what the book says about it – but as far as I remember, it was some kind of a mermaid-hoax (or, it was ‘proved’ to be a hoax).
This thing looks so eerie that it really disturbed me when I read it. And, the creature or hoax in here now is really a copy of it.
If this is real, then it raises the question if the mermaid-hoax was never a hoax after all.
[I don’t know if you read comments to posts this old, but cheers if you do. I like your blog, even if our values might differ. ;)]

We have a creature similar to this in our possession. It was found about 15 years ago in Silver City, New Mexico around Lake Roberts. It was found tangled up in fishing lines on the bank, dead but fresh. The individual who first found it (a relative of ours) can’t remember if it resembled a ray or if it looks as it is now. I have spent a while looking on the internet and have come across sites like this. If anyone has any more information, please feel free to contact me at rewirsig@hotmail.com. I’ll be posting a video on youtube soon. Thanks, Rebecca.
