Paranatural: Chupacabra

The main radar telescope array at Arecibo Observatory is the site of several SETI (Search for Extra-Terrestrial Intelligence) projects.
The legend of the Chupacabra tells of a vampire-like beast that preys on the blood of livestock and pets. Theories of what the vicious creature looks like vary by region, but now new evidence in Texas may help scientists get to the bottom of the mystery. Ranchers and farmers have discovered the remains of a weird canine that could meet one of the Chupacabra's rumored descriptions - a hairless dog-like creature with large fangs!
