Chupacabra found in Texas?

From Wikipedia:

Chupacabra is most commonly described as a strange breed of wild dog. This form is mostly hairless, has a pronounced spinal ridge, unusually pronounced eye sockets, fangs, and claws. It is claimed that this breed might be an example of a dog-like reptile. Unlike conventional predators, the chupacabra is said to drain all of the animal's blood (and sometimes organs) through a single hole or two holes.

Another description of Chupacabra, although just as common, is a reptile-like being, appearing to have leathery or scaly greenish-gray skin and sharp spines or quills running down its back. This form stands approximately 3 to 4 feet (1 to 1.2 m) high, and stands and hops in a similar fashion to a kangaroo. In at least one sighting, the creature hopped 20 feet (6 m). This variety is said to have a dog or panther-like nose and face, a forked tongue, and large fangs. It is said to hiss and screech when alarmed, as well as leave a sulfuric stench behind. When it screeches, some reports note that the chupacabra's eyes glow an unusual red, that gives the witnesses nausea. Some witnesses have reported seeing bat-like wings.
Yes, that's right. These deputies from a tiny county in Texas believe they've found the legendary goat-killer. I'll admit, I said something along the lines of "Woah, what the hell is that thing?!" when I saw it, but that's about it. This is no Spanish/Mexican bloodsucker. It's probably just a goofy looking coyote with mange. It's just another story about a weird "creature" people happen to see. Whatever. I don't buy it. Another week, another small town claiming they have a monster.
