    Some years ago some friends and I were going fishing in a local river. We were going to use live bait, so we saned a small creek that ran into the lake.

    As we were pulling the net through the water, we hit some kind of snag. Thinking it was a root or just some branches in the water, we just pulled a little harder.
    It broke free easier that we thought it should. We didn't think much about it at the time, and just kept pulling.

    We get to a shallow part and decided to bring the net out and see what we have.
    As we pulled it out, we saw something trying its best to get out of the net.
    We thought it may be a big fish or large turtle.
    We get it up on land and fold the net back, and like a shot, it ran out of the net and went straight up a tree.

    We dropped the net and ran after it. After we reached the tree, and started looking for it up in the tree. We could see the branches moving and leaves falling, we knew about where it was.

    We found some long sticks and started poking at where it was, and before we could get a good look at it, the thing flew off.

    To this day we have never found out what it was.:confused:

    Chupacabra only hang out where there are Goats, so I figured if there were a few Goats hanging around, we might be narrowing the field.

    Goats say Bah, only with more anger. I had an African Pygmy Goat growing up. It was my second favortie pet. I loved that goat. Now that I've given you guys gold, I expect to be berated with some class.

    Man, how a fishing story can take a turn down the wrong road..lol
    I dont think there were any sheep or goats around there.

    However, there may have been a unicorn or two.:D

    You don't have to ask them. Just look underneath them when they're not looking.
