Elmendorf Beast A coyote with severe hair loss from mange, one suggested explanation for the creature Creature Grouping Cryptid Sub grouping Canid Data First reported 2004 Country USA Region Elmendorf, Texas The Elmendorf Beast was the name given to a creature blamed for several attacks on livestock in Elmendorf, Texas. Various opinions have been offered as to the identity of the creature, including that it was a Mexican Hairless Dog whose appearance had been altered by sickness and/or congenital ailments, and that it was a wolf–coyote cross. Some local people have linked it to the legend of the Chupacabra, while others believe that it was the product of a lab experiment that escaped, or that it was a previously unknown form of canid that was forced into contact with humans after its natural habitat was destroyed. [1] Analysis of the carcass In August 2004, an animal eventually termed the Elmendorf Beast was shot and killed by local rancher Devin Mcanally. The animal was found to be twenty pounds (nine kilograms). It had a severe overbite and unusual skin which was blue and hairless. Experts at San Antonio Zoo were unable to conclusively identify the creature, but based on its skull they speculated that it was a Mexican Hairless Dog. It was later determined by DNA assay conducted at University of California, Davis to be a coyote with demodectic or sarcoptic mange. Other experts also concluded that it was not originally hairless, but that it was instead suffering from sarcoptic mange. DNA gathered from the carcass was inconclusive due to environmental degradation, though it was confirmed that the animal was a member of the canine family. Two similar carcasses were discovered in Texas and were found to be coyotes, suffering from very severe cases of mange.
