Oh, but they want it to be a chupacabra so bad, as KSAT-12 reports:
Of course he isn't. A coyote is commonplace. A chupacabra gets you television time.
DeWITT COUNTY, Texas -- The legend of the chupacabra gained new life over the weekend as two DeWitt County sheriff's deputies spotted what they said they believe is the mythical creature.
Friday, Cpl. Brandon Riedel was training a new deputy when he said they saw the animal running down a dirt path along fence lines.
"You need to record something like this because it's not everyday you find something that looks like this running around out in the middle of the county," he said.
The short-legged, hairless animal has a long snout that looks like a coyote, but Riedel said he isn't convinced.
