Taxidermist to Stuff Chupacabra

A student brought Jerry Ayer, a teacher at the Blanco Taxidermy School in Texas, a creature for identification - but Ayer could not identify the beast, either. He put it in his freezer, where it resides to this day.

The specimen is hairless, with lathery, gray skin and large fangs,. Ayer says the front legs are longer than those of a normal coyote. Ayer says he has never seen anything like it. The alleged chupacabra was poisoned by Ayer's former student who originally thought his barn was infested by mice. The specimen is whole and in very good condition, as Ayer has been keeping it in the freezer.

Prior to the poisoning, there were several reported sightings in the area of an animal matching Ayer's description of the "chupacabra" in his freezer. He plans to stuff and mount the creature, then offer it to a local museum for display.


I don’t know what to call it, I'll just call it a chupacabra too.
