A creepy looking deceased animal, discovered on a street deceased in Minnesota, and had experts at the Department of Natural Resources (DNR) stumped for over a week. Some have been quick to name the beast the legendary Chupacabra. DNA outcomes Monday, however, uncovered the truth about the animal. The proof is here: Minnesota Chupacabra road kill identified
Found on the street
The first time the white creature was seen was on July 31. It had no hair and had five claws on each front paw which were long. The creature was found outside of Alexandria on Country Road 86 by Lacey Ilse.
Almost a human
"We saw something in the middle of the road, and we knew it wasn't a dog or a cat, because it didn't have hair," Ilse told local TV reporters. "It had a clump of hair and all the rest was just white skin. Its ear was all misshaped. To me, it looked half-human." Kevin Kotts of the Minnesota DNR said it appeared to be a badger:
"It's got five long front claws on each of its front feet, which would be characteristic of a badger. I ran the pictures past a few other DNR folks that have a lot of trapping and/or fur-bearer experience, and they all said it's hard to be 100 percent sure what it is ... but if it's a Minnesota animal, it's probably a badger."
Is it the goat sucker every person talks about?
The Chupacabra is a mythical animal believed to live in Mexico. Occasionally, called the "goat sucker," the dog-like beast is said to consume the blood of livestock. The body was iced of the road kill. It was then put in the Glenwood, Minn., at the Department of Natural Resources office while DNA tests were being done.
Eventually getting a response
Anything is clear now that the tests came back on Monday. The beast is, indeed, as Kotts predicted, a badger. Decomposition had already started on the animal. That was why it was white and losing hair.
