Benjamin Radford, investigative journalist and author of “Tracking the Chupacabra,” recently told a local television station that chupacabras to date are mammals with sarcoptic mange. Due to climate change, he believes “chupacabras” with mange are living longer, optimizing their chances to be seen.
Despite this uptick in sightings, Radford claims DNA testing of all alleged chupacabras have turned up as coyotes, dogs or raccoons.
The author went on to say that he would love to find a true chupacabra.
“If they’re out there, I want to be the first person there. I want to poke at it and sniff it.”
