The legendary chupacabra of Ratcliffe, Texas

An allegedly mythical creature, elusive for so many years, chupacabra was finally caught and exposed to the media, in a small town of Ratcliffe, Texas. Here it is, alive and in all its glory:

Here is the story of the capture, told by Jackie Stock, the spouse of chupacabra hunter:
"He saw this strange animal sitting up here eating corn," said Stock. “He called me to come and look, and I said, ‘Bubba that looks like a baby chupacabra.’”
Told what to do in no uncertain terms, Bubba has done it. And here is Jackie Stock, a remarkable woman who wasn't afraid to issue the right order at the right time:

Image of the obedient Bubba, the catcher of the chupacabra, doesn't appear in the article, obviously being superfluous to its purposes. As for the fate of the creature:
Mike Cox, spokesman for the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department said, "The land owner left a message on the warden's voice mail this morning that the animal had been euthanized."
Oh well, the meeting of minds was too short to bear fruit...

P.S. Due to time constrains and the pressure to go public, and error occurred in this article: the picture of Ms Stock was switched with the recording of the legendary chupacabra. I hope that a discerning reader noticed this and that any possible mental anguish was avoided.

Thanks, I took a look at the episode. Funny.

Mike Cox is an old newspaper colleague of mine who must have gotten tired of retirement since he hardly needs to work anymore. I suppose the landowner's "euthanized" (instead of killed) was intended to ward off PETA.

That was my impression too.
