Fruit Eating Kangaroo-Like Chupacabra Haunting Wisconsin

Posted by on November 1st, 2010

Residents in southeastern Wisconsin have recently been reporting sightings of a┬ánocturnal creature invading their back yards. This photo was snapped by a woman as the creature sat in her back yard on its hind legs eating crab apples. The photo was sent to the The Wildlife in Need Center where a spokeswomen said that while it “may point to the existence of the elusive and legendary El Chupacabra residing in southeastern Wisconsin” it most likely is “a gray or red fox with Sarcoptic Mange, caused by an infestation of mites.” ┬áMany people were quick to label this creature a Chupacabra, but it has also been noted that this is not the first time kangaroo-like creatures have been reported in Waukesha County.

    It is my understanding of Chupacabra lore that the Chupacabra eats animals (usually larger than itself). Otherwise, isn’t it just a typical malnourished vegan with some deformed ears?

    In my opinion, this could not be a Kangaroo! As I am writing this I am looking through the book of Australian Mammals. I am definitely sure that this cannot be a kangaroo, wallaby, or similar creature. First, there is no Australian creature with such a long pointy face. I have taken into account the possibility of it being mutated.
    The most important part that tells me that this is not a kangaroo is the tail. The tail of this creature is not near muscular enough. A kangaroo depends heavily upon its tail. I have seen boomers (male kangaroos) leaning back on their tail and kicking and scratching each other. It is also a fact, not usually put in practice, that kangaroos are unable to travel forward, they can still turn around, if you pick up and hold their tail.
