The Chupacubra, or “Goat-sucker” in Spanish, is a legendary animal with sightings reported in both North and South America. The creature is in a similar league to the Yeti or Loch Ness Monster, but could it actually exist?
A creature fitting the description of a Chupacubra was discovered in Hood County, Texas this week. The suspected Chubacubra had a similar appearance to the above video from 2008, a hairless dog-like creature, with short front legs and a long snout.
The creature was discovered in a barn and shot by an animal control officer. Yet, researchers now think it could just be a hairless coyote. DNA tests are now being carried out on the alleged Chupacubra.
Frank Hackett, the Hood County Animal Control officer who killed the animal told local TV station WOAI “All I know is, it wasn’t normal…It was ugly, real ugly, and I’m not going to lie on that one.”
