A Texas couple claims they found the famous chupacabra Sunday night after it walked into a trap in their backyard.
“I hunted coons for 20 years with dogs and I ain’t never seen nothing looks like that right there,” Arlen Parma, who captured the creature, said.
The animal has a hairless back, large claws and a terrible growl.
Brent Ortego, a wildlife diversity biologist from Texas Parks and Wildlife, said he believes the animal is some kind of small canine. A canine could include a coyote, dog or fox. He added that the animal probably has mange, which would account for its loss of hair.
"[Chupacabra has] never been proven to be a unique species,” Ortego said. “It was always something out there that allegedly either caused harm or threatened to cause harm to people or their livestock.”
The canine is currently staying at the Parma household until someone can discover what it is exactly.
