I'm so glad that Anderson Cooper doesn't take this seriously.

How can anyone not see that it's a dog. It could not be more dog-like if it was still barking. IT'S A FRIKKEN DOG!

...sigh...

It's so stupid it ought to be ignored. But, they just CAN'T ignore stupid. What would they show on 24hr news then?

I miss the chupacabras from the '90's.

Three foot tall humanoid lizards with spiny backs are much cooler than bald dogs.

NO KIDDING! When Ben's chupa book comes out, I hope it details the decline in weird scariness of the critter. When did bald blueskinned dogs become goatsuckers?

When did Mothman get a head? These creatures evolve almost just like folklore.
