There are no fairytale creatures in Lukhovitsky district, Russia

Good to know a place is chupacabra- (and other mythical animal) free.

Moscow Region Officials Formally Deny Existence of Chupacabra | Russia | RIA Novosti.

The legendary monster chupacabra was blamed for the recent inexplicable death of 60 sheep in a remote corner of the Moscow Region.

The livestock’s killer left no footprints in the snow, which prompted farmers and media in the town of Beloomut, 150 kilometers southeast of the city of Moscow, to look for supernatural explanations.

But the region’s Agriculture Ministry formally denied that a chupacabra could have been involved.

It is suspected it was a dog and tracks were not found due to snowfall afterwards. Originating in Puerto Rico and spreading through Central America and the Southern US states, the chupacabra is a worldwide phenomenon as he makes his way around the globe thanks to the Internet. The creature that first was described to resemble a spikey-backed, red-eyed, alien-like creature, the more common attribution of a chupacabra these days is a mangey canid or ANYTHING that people can’t readily identify.

Now THAT'S a chupa.

Now THAT’S a chupa.

    Okay, the Russians don’t believe in chupacabras officially. Fortunately they do still believe in all the other woo crap popular in the US.
