Is it a legend? Many observers believe that view the Chupacabra is an urban legend. First we have a Montauk Monster wash ashore and now we have a rare sighting of a Chupacabra, which is often spelled with the South American spelling of La Chupucabra. So what is this creature? Legend has it that the Chupacabra is a mythical creature that only comes out to feed late at night.
According to a report from television station KHOU in Texas one police officer that encountered what just might be a Chupacabra, and the officer described it as hairless creature with a long snout, short front legs and long back legs. He said he had never seen anything like it.
Now we have photos and video as the quick thinking deputy sheriff didn't feel like telling this tale to his pals in law enforcement without some video to back up his claim. See the video here along with more photos of the strange creature and see if you can figure out if it is really a Chupacabra.
A report from Local 10.Com from Texas notes that even though there has never been an official discovery of the mysterious animal, Cuero, Texas, boasts it is the world's Chupacabra capital.
