A south Texas family claims to have shot a chupacabra on their property.
From ABC News:
“My grandson ran outside and shot him from about 240 yards,” Ohrt, 79, told ABC News. “It’s mangy looking and it’s got long hair on the back and hair on its legs.”
“My grandkids said ‘Oh that’s a chupacabra’,” Doug Ohrt’s wife, Lucy, 77, told ABC News affiliate KAVU, referring to the infamous mythical beast that has long been part of folklore and legend in the South.
“It’s usually got long hair on it and this one doesn’t and that’s what makes it different from a regular coyote,” said Lucy Ohrt. “I’ve heard people say they’ve gotten young calves, but they have never gotten any of ours.”
