A measure of fame was brought to Cuero, a sleepy South Texas town, when a car hit a strange-looking, blue, furry mammal on a dusty road. Was it a chupacabra (Spanish for "goat sucker"), or just a mangy coyote? Phylis Canion, took the animal home where she tossed it in her freezer. She said that the chupacabra had been stalking her ranch for years, snatching her cats and chickens, and sucking the blood out of them. This, of course, has hit the news, and Canion is quickly cashing in, selling corny souvenirs and T-shirts. Sales are even being made internationally,“These shirts, four of them, are going to Sicily. We have sent shirts to Guam, we have sent shirts to Iraq, California, Memphis,” Canion said.
