Texas City Believes It Might Have Caught A Chupacabra On Camera


As some of you may already know the chupacabra is a “Latin American popular legend of a monstrous creature that attacks animals and consumes their blood”.

Well, one city in Texas believes it may have caught a chupacabra on camera.

On May 21st security cameras located at the Amarillo Zoo captured a strange creature outside of the zoo.

The City of Amarillo then posted the strange picture on their Twitter account and raised the question if it was a chupacabra.

Take a look:

USA Today, had these details to share:

Around 1:25 a.m. May 21, security cameras inside a perimeter fence at the Amarillo Zoo in Texas captured a strange image outside the zoo.

Now the city of Amarillo is seeking the public’s input to help solve the mystery.

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.

A chupacabra is a folklore creature said to have lived in Latin America that allegedly attacked animals.

In the spirit of fun if not curiosity, the city of Amarillo is letting the public offer ideas on the identity of the UAO seen in the photo; video footage is not available.

ABC 15 News reported on the strange story too:

Zoo officials in Texas are scratching their heads over what they saw in a surveillance video.

This does not look any animal known to man.

Now, officials at the Amarillo Zoo are wondering if this could be a Chupacabra.

The image of the two-legged creature was captured around 1:30 a.m. on May 21.

Some people speculated that it was simply a person in a costume, while others said it could be a coyote on its hind legs.

City officials said the creature never entered the zoo and zoo animals were safe.
