Letter to the editor: Asking veterinarians about more info on Chupacabra

Dear editor,

Over the past two weeks, we have heard of sightings of an alleged Chupacabra.  Seeing the first picture, my mind immediately thought a fix with mange, and possibly dehydrated.  After researching coyotes and foxes, both with mange, I would be interested in hearing an informed opinion by one of our local (or nearby) veterinarians.
