Unfortunately the Wisconsin version is very real

Owen at Boots and Sabers links to a report on the chupacabra, a "goat sucker", a mythological creature that sucks the lifeblood out of farm animals.

Owen may not be aware of it, but here in Wisconsin we have our own version of the beast. It's called the "chupataxra" and it sucks the lifeblood out of Wisconsin taxpayers. Unfortunately, the Wisconsin version is very real and is known for going into a frenzy every April 15th. The "chupataxra" tends to be difficult to see around election day but is frequently seen during budget season.

Sadly it preys on homeowners the hardest, especially seniors. In Wisconsin, the "chupataxra" has very few natural enemies.

Update! Phel asks for a picture.Notice the sharp eyes, looking for prey. The shifty nature, making it often too quick for any potential predator. The chameleon-like coloring is able to change with the political seasons. Such a creature can suck the the lifeblood out of the sick, the elderly, even the relatively mobile with it's extremely long reach. Despite the annoying tonal qualities of it's song, it is quite capable of beguiling it's victims into believing it is perfectly harmless before it strikes.
