Grodno residents found a mummy "chupacabra" at the dacha. Summer residents found mysterious creatures on their plot of land. "Chupacabra" was found in a shed among rags.

The owners of the plot, after the winter they decided to put things in order at their dacha near Grodno and dismantle the old barn. In a bag with rags, which are usually used for gartering tomatoes, they saw a mummy. Now Grodno residents are puzzling over what kind of creature it is and how it got to the dacha. The "little dragon", as the readers themselves called it, is planned to be transferred to Grodno scientists for research.

By the way, "Chupacabra" became famous throughout Belarus in 2013. Then the workers of one of the farms of the Vitebsk region caught and killed an unknown animal, which terrorized local farms for several months, attacking cattle. Residents dubbed it "chupacabra" and thought it looked like a small hyena.

The myth of the mythical creature was debunked by veterinarians. They said that it was not an African animal, but an ordinary bald young raccoon or raccoon dog.

Hypotheses

List of versions containing features matching the eyewitness descriptions or material evidence

Raccoon dog

Predatory omnivorous mammal of the family Canidae.

The natural habitat of raccoon dog — wood and mountain-region of North-Eastern Indochina, China, Japan and the Korean Peninsula. In Russia it was originally found only in the Ussuri region and in the southern part of Amur region.

In the mid-twentieth century, they spread across the European part of Russia and the countries of Eastern Europe, and then penetrated into Finland, Estonia, Sweden, Poland, Romania, Czech Republic, Germany and France.

Famous creatures

There are a huge number of different living organisms on our planet. According to recent estimates, the number of species of organisms on our planet is approximately 7-10 million. However, only 15% of the data are described today.

According to the calculations of Canadians, 2.2 million species live in the world's oceans, 6.5 million on land. There are only about 7.8 million species of animals on the planet, 611 thousand fungi, and 300 thousand plants.

Baldness

Often, because of the nature of the species, age or various diseases, the animals are deprived of wool.

The most common skin disease that leads to this effect is considered to be the Itch mite. From coyotes, for example, the response to the disease can be so strong , what causes hair loss, narrowing of the blood vessels, adding to the overall fatigue exhaustion. Therefore, affected animals often attack livestock because it usually is easy prey.

Post-mortem changes

Because ordinary people are rarely familiar with the nuances of postmortem changes in organisms, it can often take them for something mystical.

Gray meat flies eat rotting tissue, leaving a sharp edge. This explains the "surgical" removal of organs and parts of the skin. However, such behaviors of the flies many take for the interference of aliens or attacked by unknown creatures.
