Was it a person with a strange hat who likes to walk at night? A large coyote on its hind legs? A chupacabra? For now, the strange visitor is a UAO – Unidentified Amarillo Object, according to a news release.
“Definitely chupacabra, yep,” someone commented on the City of Amarillo, Texas Facebook post.
“This is literally sonic the hedgehog,” another one wrote.
