Episode Summary

Chupacabras, Magic Cows, Black Dogs
Subject: CHUPACABRAS Location: USA Duration: 6:46 Since it was first sighted in Puerto Rico three years ago, the Chupacabra, or goatsucker, has become one of the greatest puzzles of the paranormal. Said to be around five feet tall with red eyes, fangs and powerful hind legs, it's been sighted as far away as Moscow. Animal X hits the Chupacabras trail to help unravel the mystery. Paranormal investigator Ted Loman and folklorist Jim Griffith give their expert assessments, while eye-witnesses offer first hand accounts of their terrifying encounters with the mysterious beast. Subject: MAGIC COWS Location: AUSTRALIA Duration: 7:40 Cattle and sheep in the high plains, near Canberra in Australia, are living to extraordinary ages, staying healthy and remaining reproductively randy well into their twilight years. Scientists are determined to find out more about the animals life sustaining bio-chemistry. Is it the water? Is it the soil? And does it hold the key to extending human life. Subject: Black Dog Location: UK Duration: 10:12 They're considered to be the most persistent of all ghostly animals. Reported sightings of Phantom Black Dogs in Britain date back to medieval times. Four hundred years ago, a devil dog was even blamed for killing five people in a church. Some believe they're protective creatures, others, an omen of death. Whatever their purpose, the Phantom Dogs have left an indelible impression on anyone who's witnessed them.Animal X travelled to East Anglia to speak to those who have witnessed this ghostly phenomenon.moreless
