'Chupacabra' Makes Rare Daytime Appearance - Miami News Story - WPLG Miami
CUERO, Tex. -- Deep in the heart of Texas, one lawman thinks his deputies may have recorded footage of the elusive Chupacabra.
Chupacabra Caught On Camera?
Some believe the Chupacabra is a mythical creature that only comes out to feed late at night. But Dewitt County deputies recorded their video during the day.
"I'm seeing it but I don't believe it. It's in the daytime," said one deputy. "A Chupacabra -- how crazy is this?"
Cpl. Brandol Reidel was on patrol with his partner when they saw something they couldn't describe. So, in case no one believed them when they told their story, they pushed record on the dashboard camera, capturing video of what some now say is the elusive Chupacabra.
"We came around a corner and saw this running down the road," Reidel said.
The creature is hairless, has a long snout, short front legs and long back legs.
"It just doesn't look like your average coyote or dog or anything," Reidel said.
Despite no official discovery of the beast, Cuero, Texas, boasts it is the world's Chupacabra capital. Some residents hope this really is their mascot.
The sheriff said he is willing to work with credible researchers who want to help solve the mystery.
