Ah, The Chupacabra

A man living north of San Antonio says he has quite the animal sitting in his freezer - and it may be a mythical chupacabra.

Jerry Ayer, a teacher at the Blanco Taxidermy School in Blanco, Texas, said that he's never seen anything like it.

"Different, that’s for sure, very interesting," said Ayer.

The find comes amid a number of strange sightings in the area. The animal is grey in color with leathery, hairless skin and large fangs.

"The front legs seem to be a little bit longer than a typical coyote, very irregular and never seen any that have legs like that," said Ayer.

Similar animals have been spotted across the country and deep in South America. "I don’t know what to call it, I'll just call it a chupacabra too," Ayer said.

Looks like either an Italian Greyhound or a small whippet to me.
