Based solely on tail.. Possum. But the legs, eyes, ears, and snout make it look more like a small fox, probably with really bad mange or other diseases.

Someone one beat me to chupacabra....dang.

Yeah, looks like a sick fox.

On a side note, the local news gets a pic like this down here in south Texas at least once a year and makes a huge news story about it being the chupacabra. Its hilarious.
