Just in time for Christmas: Man kills rare cryptid and local news reports on it!
I dunno, if it's real, this story makes me sad. I mean, chupacabras are nearly extinct! Back when I was a boy, they were thick on the ground, gobbling up all the local fauna, but then the white man came and hunted them nearly to extinction. Now only kill-first-research-later rednecks enjoy the opportunity to witness the rare creature... before shooting it dead. *sigh*

Well gee, Chris...I think if you don't know what it is, you should just go on ahead and shoot it. ESPECIALLY if it's rare.

Y'know, the light tone of the story really put me off! I have mixed feelings:

1) Chupacabra sighting, cool!
2) Why'd he have to go and shoot it?

I wonder why conservationists fight so hard about saving other species but don't do anything to save good ol' Chupa?

I can totally see why the tone put you off.

Maybe conservationists are protecting themselves from ridicule by not coming to the defense of a mythical animal. LOL!! Kinda hard to deny that it exists, though, when it's sitting there all dead on the table.

I mean, the dude really doesn't look like a sculptor, tho I've seen lifelike sculptures and this could be one? are we sure it's real?

No way to know! You'd think if it were a joke story, you'd see something to clue you in. But that's what I'm going with: It's a fake!

Looks like a possum with a skin condition and has lost all hair.

Man, you're wrecking my willing suspension of disbelief!

Oops! Sorry, I totally see it now, definitely chupacabra.

Whew. Feeling much better now.
