GRAPHIC VIDEO: Edmond man claims to have shot, killed a chupacabra
EDMOND, Okla. – It seems that at least a few times every year, residents across Oklahoma believe they saw a chupacabra.
This past weekend, Evan Brown tells us an animal they believe was a chupacabre tried to attack their French Bulldogs.
Brown said, “We are out at the Brown residence in North Edmond, northeast. We have here the real thing a chupacabra, cousins to the unicorn.”
In an effort to defend their dogs, the family shot and killed the animal.
Brown captured the animal’s image on tape, which NewsChannel 4 brought to the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation.
However, officials say this is not a chupacabra.
Micah Holmes, with the Okla. Dept. of Wildlife, said, “We saw the video today and it looks like a coyote with a case of mange, unfortunately. We have lots of folks who say they’ve seen one but we haven’t seen one yet. It’s just a legend.”
Holmes told us to remind people that it is legal to hunt coyotes as long as you have a hunting license.
