Have They Found the Chupacabra?

A taxidermist in Blanco, Texas claims to have a frozen, preserved specimen of the ever-popular Latin American mythical creature: the Chupacabra. Says Jerry Ayer, owner of the Blanco Taxidermy School, "It's different, that's for sure. It's very interesting."

The animal was found by one of his students, who placed poison out to catch an unidentified animal that had gotten into a family members barn. Ayers says he does not know what the animal is and that it does not appear anything like any animal he's ever come across. "I don't know what to call it, so I'll just call it a chupacabra too."

Mariela Rosario,

I'm a raging opinionista and I love to share my ramblings on everything from pop culture to food to stuff that makes me laugh & cry! I've worked in all types of media (TV, film, print) and was previously the online editor at Latina magazine before joining Mamás Latinas. On most nights you can find me working my way through my library of cookbooks or playing with my puppy Lola (my only child so far). I have a wonderful hubby who shares my passion for any and all kinds of travel. Together, we've formed a semi-professional wine drinking team.
