This video was taken out the front window of my house. This unusual canine wandered around my suburban neighborhood for several days in July of 2004, but I haven’t seen it since. At first, I thought it was a coyote with a bad case of mange. But if the animal had mange so bad that it lost virtually all its hair, I’d think it would have infections from where it had been scratching. And why would it still have hair on its tail, the easiest place for it to bite and scratch? Other than being hungry and emaciated, this animal seemed healthy. So not knowing what it was, my wife and I referred to this animal as “Chupie”. That’s our affectionate name for the animal, since it looked like the Elmendorf Texas sighting of “El Chupacabra”. After some research and a suggestion from a YouTube viewer, I’ve come to a different belief about this animal. I can’t say with absolute certainty, but I now think this animal was a Sampson fox. Sampson foxes have a rare genetic condition that prevents the development of guard hairs. This might explain why there is still some hair left on the tail. My thanks goes to the various viewers around the world who have provided ideas on what this might be. If new viewers have other ideas on what it might be, feel free to post your comments.
