one was last sighted in Texas in 2008, it was portrayed as either a cross between a dog and a wolf or perhaps a mangey coyote.
There have been many stories about these unidentified animals over the last several years (see 2006 clip below). But the chupacabras are in the news again after two strange animals were killed recently in Granbury, Texas. Animal Control Office Frank Hackett described the animal involved in the most recent sighting: "All I know is, it wasn't normal. It was ugly, real ugly. I'm not going to tell no lie on that one." DNA testing is being done to determine the animal's origin.
