Just down the road from Elizabethtown on a Boston-area farm, an animal some believed to be a mythical chupacabra was shot and killed last month.
With long fingers and big ears, the bald creature caused a media stir.
It isn’t a chupacabra, though. A Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife biologist has determined it’s a raccoon — sans fur, according to the Kentucky Standard newspaper. Mange or a congenital problem could have caused the hair loss.
