New York, July 15 (ANI): A mythical beast, known as a Chupacabra, which literally means 'goat sucker', is on the prowl in Texas.
The creature, sometimes called as the "Bigfoot of Lation culture", is a cross between a dog and a wolf, and it has a vicious reputation of killing animals and ripping them limb from limb.
Though chupacabra sightings have never been confirmed, the myth was dispelled this week when two "strange canine" animals were spotted and killed in Hood County.
According to the San Antonio station WOAI, a rancher in North Texas said he found a dog-like beast when he investigated a growl coming from inside his barn.
Looking inside, he said he saw "the ugliest creature he has ever seen".
"All I know is, it wasn't normal," the New York Daily News quoted Animal Control Officer Frank Hackett, who was called to the scene, as saying.
"It was ugly, real ugly. I'm not going to tell no lie on that one," he stated.
Hackett shot and killed the creature, one of two found in the area in the past week, and DNA testing is being done on the animals to find out just what they're made of. (ANI)
