Jack and Linda Crabtree of Texas set off an internet frenzy over a photo they sent to their local newspaper, along with a joke that they had spotted a genuine chupacabra.

For those of you who may not know,  El Chupacabra (or “goat sucker”) is a mythical creature that has often been blamed for the deaths of livestock who show up with their blood drained. But is it real?

There’s no proof in this photo, at least. Jack Crabtree later told The Facts.com, “It was a spoof or practical joke…I really didn’t believe it.” What they jokingly told a local paper, was reported as a real sighting, and turned into a viral news story!

Sorry to any chupacabra believers who may be reading. The animal in this photo is thought by most to be a sick wolf or coyote who has lost its hair due to mange or other disease.
