Woman finds El Chupracabra - Page 2

post #31 of 51
LOL at this. It has been all over our local news, New Mexico. Supposedly they believe it is a severely mangy coyote that got hit by a car. The did send off DNA testing on it. Our news here is going to report when it comes back. I will have to remember to update this thread with the results.

The last time someone thought they found a cupracaba here it turned out to be a dessicated sting ray someone dumped out on the west mesa. It was pretty funny all the hysteria over it.

People who hunt exotic animals who don't even eat the meat are scum.

Me, having a regular diet of venison, I get cravings if I don't have it for too long. Tenderloin... . If you go out and kill something you better eat it, if not, just leave it alone.

The possibly slightly entertaining part is the complete lack of any scientific connection, bite marks, blood testing, anything! I think this more of a case of elchubranada! Out of no where the mythical/undiscovered demonic carnivore is captured dead in the US far from it's native domain!

Yes of course - and great point, really good point.

I meant in first world western cultures, hunting is really unnecessary. I don't have the slightest problem with people who hunt for food. Especially when it's the only way they're going to get food.

I have a huge problem with trophy, power hunting. I'm pretty certain that any indigenous or tribal people who happen to keep trophies or totems still eat what they kill.

As for it being a male thing, well, it might well be. But I know several men (all very manly men, too) who could care less about hunting, don't think about it, don't want to do it, never would, never will. They're not pining away inside wishing they could get a gun and just kill something and eat it, they just don't think about it. It's not in them.

I think it's pretty cultural, too. If you're raised with it or it's a part of your town or your city or your life in other ways, of course it'll feel more natural to you.

Having said that, I don't know a single guy alive that doesn't like fishing. That's definitely a boy thing!

Hunting may be unnecessary in our types of cultures, but then so is eating meat.

These other cultures that have no supermarkets or refridgerators, don't actually eat much meat, and most of them don't hunt. They are failing agricultural societies. The millions of starving people in this world are starving because they don't have enough money (or land)http://www.worldhunger.org/articles/...cts%202002.htm and they live in places where there isn't much to hunt in the first place. We should wish they could hunt.

I'm sorry? Are you asking for a clarification, or...
post #38 of 51
I apologize, do not want to offend. I just thought to myself, what else would one hunt if they could other then meat....... I giggled in my head, obviously others may not see that.......

:
yes i agree with that part, if you not going to eat it, dont kill it.
lol well once cheap oil runs out, i hope there are some people who know the basics of living

like is said, many people today, replace that with other things. Cause in todays western world ,many people are confused and look down on that. they think there dinner just shows up.
they want there world all pretty and Fantasy like.

I disagree fully, you need some meat, not as much as most people eat,
but you do need some. I know you dont eat meet, and i do think later in life you will have issues due to that.

no meat is just as unhealthy, as to much. It all about balance.

We'll just have to go ahead and disagree on that, but then the ADA disagrees with you as well (http://www.vrg.org/nutrition/adapaper.htm). Not sure how lacking a higher concentration of pollutants and saturated fat in my diet is going to cause health problems, but hey!

As for the chupacabra... What are these "Texas Tasmanian Devils" they keep talking about in the news?
post #41 of 51
Lemur6, agree with you absolutely on all counts.
post #42 of 51
back to the topic at hand,

http://www.cnn.com/video/#/video/us/....roadkill.affl


expert in the video said it is a gray fox with mange.
post #43 of 51
Poor thing. Well, at least the fox does not have to suffer with mange anymore.
post #44 of 51
I saw this on another forum a few days ago.. and I have come to the conclusion that I OWN a Chupracabra!

Picture 1

Picture 2


post #45 of 51
You do, too!
post #46 of 51
Yes, it sure looks like you do
That's the kind of dog I was talking about in my post a couple of pages back.

I think you should send those pictures in and tell them that not only have you captured El Chupracabra but you've tamed him too
post #47 of 51
Will agree with you Leto - you have one of them....why not contact Weekly World News and get paid for exclusive pictures ?
post #48 of 51
First of all yuck!!

and second of all it's a dog with issues,, mange or soemthing
post #49 of 51
Well, I really hate bumping old threads, but the DNA test results on the 'chupacabra' were announced yesterday.
It has been identified.

post #50 of 51
They said it's a coyote. I never heard of a "Chupracabra" until that article. I think this woman is crazy for keeping it...
post #51 of 51
I knew it was more dog-like then the fake Chupracabra Probably just a sick and/or deformed coyote.
