Chupacabra or Mangy Coyote?

bony, distressed-looking dog or coyote with no hair

Every year people send reports of chupacabra sightings, along with a photo of a coyote that looks like this one, which is suffering from severe sarcoptic mange and malnutrition. The chupacabra, on the other hand, is a legendary creature fabled to suck milk from goats. No wildlife biologist has ever confirmed the existence of one.
