There is a disturbing new trend sweeping across the nation. Mythical creatures are dying at an alarming rate. First one hunter allegedly shot and killed the elusive bigfoot, and now a Texas family has slain the demon dog, chupacabra.
Over the weekend, the Ohrt family of Victoria County, Texas shot and killed what they believed to be the infamous chupacabra.
77-year-old Lucy Ohrt spoke to ABC News affiliate KAVU about how they bagged the make believe beast.

“My grandson ran outside and shot him from about 240 yards. It’s mangy looking and it’s got long hair on the back and hair on its legs.”
You are probably wondering what lead the Ohrts to believe the it was in fact a mytical creature and not just your garden variety coyote with mange? Orht explains her scientific process for identifying the creature :
"My grandkids said ‘Oh that's a chupacabra..It's usually got long hair on it and this one doesn't and that's what makes it different from a regular coyote. I’ve heard people say they've gotten young calves, but they have never gotten any of ours.”
SPOILER ALERT. It was really just a coyote with mange.
However, Bigfoot really is dead. The ape man thing was shot and killed back in 2012, according to long time Bigfoot hoaxer...sorry hunter, Rick Dyer. Dyer is now touring the nation showing off dead Bigfoot in a box.
However, there is a little more “scientific” proof to prove that Bigfoot exist.
Last year Dr. Melba S. Ketchum, released a study titled ''Novel North American Hominins, Next Generation Sequencing of Three Whole Genomes and Associated Studies.''
The group released a press statement that claims:
"In summary, our data indicates that the Sasquatch has human mitochondrial DNA but possesses nuclear DNA that is a structural mosaic consisting of human and novel non-human DNA.''
