You are probably still recovering from the sight of the hell baby that found its way to a San Diego beach last week. And you should be, because that thing is a terror and no one seems to know what it is. Fortunately for us, Vice tracked down the tipster who sent in the image in order to get some answers.

Josh "Nardington" Menard, just a super gnardog snowboarder living in Tahoe, discussed finding the evil golem and addressed the possibility of it being a fake. When asked if maybe it was just a dog, Josh said:

I want to say, after thinking about it, I don't think it's a raccoon-it was definitely bigger than that-and I don't think it's a dog. It's like two different animals. I think Chupacabras are the combination of three animals: a dog, a coyote, and a kangaroo. That's why the Chupacabras hop.

Oh, chill. There is nothing like the satisfaction of a mystery solved.
