The above is film footage from a police officer’s dash cam of what was believed to be a chupacabra. For those who might not have heard of these supposed creatures, they’ve been reported in numerous places and a great deal in Puerto Rico and Texas. This creature has short front legs, long back legs, and a head that appears rather horse-like.
It’s been discussed that perhaps what is being seen is a combination of a wolf and coyote, but neither creature has a disproportionately large head or particularly short front legs.
When I see this dash cam film, I’m taken immediately to another creature that had a horse-like head, short front legs, and a marsupial-like tail…the thylacine, better known as the “Tasmanian Tiger” (the largest known marsupial carnivore) found on the island of Tasmania near Australia and believed to be completely instinct by the 1930s.
(Film above: The last known Tasmanian Tiger). No, I’m not suggesting somehow a Tasmania Tiger has made its way to America, but is there a possibility that this creature seen and sometimes found dead on ranch land in Texas is some form of carnivorous marsupial we didn’t know was here? Something along the same concept as Bigfoot is a family member who made it across the Alaskan land bridge and evolved in the Americas?
