    Just a fluke of evolution, possibly. I once had a dog give birth to four normal puppies and a six-legged hairless one.

    Looks to me like one of those dangerous little "Peligros" to me. Not uncommon for Chupacabras to get confused with those nasty little critters.

    The "Peligro"Is a vicious little critter found mostly in the Southwestern US and Texas. They can attack a human, dog, cat, chicken... they are like a cross between a wolverine, weasel and miniature Mexican wolf all wrapped into one terrorist little animal.

    I'm certain most of you have never heard of them but those of us in the southwest, southern California and Texas have. In fact, if you drive many roads out in the rural desert areas out here you will see signs all over in big red letters that say "Danger - Peligro".

    Yup... vicious little critters that can eat right through that hardware cloth, and tear the head off of a roo...

    Aren't Chupacabras supposedly much bigger than a raccoon?
