I think in the first picture (saneguy's) the legs are curled up under the animal, and what looks like the amputated stump is just the "elbow".

I agree with you about the jaw. In fact, if you look closely, it looks as though the jaw was dislocated posteriorly, to give it the impression of being a fierce animal.

I don't think those pics in Justa's post are of the same animal. The second one was used in the story, but the caption identifies it as from another sighting. Also, all three seem to be in different stages of decomposition.

I am voting canine, I don't see the kangaroo aspect of em, in the head. I think they have much more distinctly NON dog-like faces, even the mini versions.... could be wrong. Yeah I think we are looking at some decomposing scraggly dogs here.

My first question was whether or not a veterinarian had a done a necropsy on the caracass, but a quick check of the Web informed me that Mr. Lagow turned it over to the Texas Parks and Wildlife lab for identification. Results on the DNA tests should be back in four to six weeks . . .

I first thought it may have been a coyote but the coyote has a bushy tail like a fox. I wouldn't be surprised if it was a domestic animal wandering in the wild.

If a coyote had somehow lost its tail-fur, though, it might look like that...

Yeah, like maybe a scamming farmer shaved it off with a pair of canine sheers.

I think the legs in the first pic are just tucked out of sight- like cats do. Those second pics look more like deer type creatures- which reminds me of the munt jack which has fangs, though not on the lower jaw like that...

The point which I should first wish to understand is whether the pious or holy is beloved by the gods because it is holy, or holy because it is beloved of the gods.

It's a dog of some sort. Has to be. Maybe it's breed we haven't seen yet. Or maybe it's a hoax. Perhaps the farmer got plastered, and shaved his own dog down. Who knows?

Here are a couple of South American hairless dog breeds. Notice the similarities?

It definitely looks like some sort of dog to me. Maybe a dog that had severe mange or something. I doubt it was a mexican hairless (the first dog picture posted above mine) because they are actually very small dogs. This seems to be a larger type of dog. Poor thing. :)

You've done it Holmes! Uh, I mean Justa. I think these look VERY similar to the "Chupacabra" And I don't think the dead dog in the photo's look all that big. It's hard to tell the size on such a close up shot.

As much as I think you guys have solved this too...and I went back over all the pics as well. On page 1...because I'm wondering this myself does the chupalupa dog thing have a tail or not???? In the one he does in the other he doesn't...hmmmm. I know know like when boxers and cocker spaniels are born they snip their tails...what's up with this hairless thing. (sorry, I like my pets fuzzy, unless you're my turtle) I personally think that farmer has been sniffing his manure too long..lol! Anyways, I think you guys are right about the dog (I personally still can't call those dogs, ya'll! Dogs are suppose to be big, protective, and bark! Not be furless, whimper, shake, and pee!) Kinda like a poodle..yuck! I like boxers, bulldogs, mastifs...ya, know...Dogs! Sorry, getting off the subject, when is the foresics suppose to be coming back on this and are they actually going to post the findings? Or was there someone else smart enough out there to put two and two together like our brilliant Justa? Julie

WAIT A MINUTE!!!! HOLD THE BUS!!!

I just took a closer look... if you look at the picture of the animal showing the teeth, there is a copyright mark there from 2004. So I went snooping, and low and behold...from 14 Oct 2004...

A mystery animal identical to the Elmendorf Beast has been found in Lufkin, Texas, approximately 300 miles northeast of Elmendorf, where the first animal was shot in May


Notice: the first animal was shot in May (I think that is the other picture I posted with the one with the teeth)

http://images.google...ttp...6lr=&sa=N

However, the original picture and story on this thread are from Aug 2005.

Both stories are from Texas, one from close to San Antonio, and the other from Lufkin.

The plot thickens... both claim the creature is chupacabra. Hmmmm... Watson, get me my pipe and my magnifying glass. I think Moriarty is up to his old tricks. :lol:

Soooo, the pictures are all of different animals, but obviously the same breed.
