Earlier in the week, animal control officer Frank Hackett shot and killed an unusual animal in a barn southwest of Fort Hood, TX after hearing it growl at him. Officer Hackett hasn't stated whether or not he believes the creature to be the elusive Chupacabra as he awaits DNA results. However, did comment that “it wasn't normal.”
A few days later, a second unidentifiable animal was killed several miles away by a rancher. While Officer Hackett isn't ready to declare his find a Chupacabra, many believe the second one may be. Some have described these animals as “half alien/half dinosaur dog like creature with a spiny back” or “a vampire dog of some sort with huge fangs and no tail”. Others state “it has a tail”, or “a stubby cropped looking tail”. At this point, it depends on who you talk to.
Hood County Animal Control sent the animal to Texas A&M for testing. Until DNA results are returned Doctors at Texas A&M would only say it's some kind of coyote hybrid. Several of these animals similar in appearance seemed to keep popping up in Texas especially. There has to be a reason for it. Possibly the answer to a lot of Chupacabra sightings?
