Texas chupacabra: Texas couple claims they captured a baby chupacabra

A Texas chupacabra -- a mythical animal -- has been caught by a couple -- at least, that's what they say. On April 3, ABC Local reported that Jackie Stock and Arlen Parma captured a creature that they say must be chupacabra. The only problem with their claim? A chupacabra has never been found despite several claims throughout the years. In fact, many people don't even believe that such an animal exists.

"With its hairless back, large claws, countless teeth and ferocious growl, many would say the animal fits the bill," reports ABC Local. And Parma says that he has never seen anything like this before.

The Texas chupacabra -- or unidentified hairless animal -- is extremely strange. Parma is a hunter and says that over the past 20 years he hasn't seen anything like this creature -- which, of course, leads him to believe it's a chupacabra... it must be, right? Well, animal specialists believe that the creature is likely a coyote or a fox with mange. What do you think?

"It's never been proven to be a unique species. It was always something out there that allegedly was said to cause harm to people or livestock," said Brent Ortego, a wildlife diversity biologist.
