Chupacabra in 78250? No. Coyote? Yes.

As a follow-up to a recent report about a potential Chupacabra in 78250, I am happy to report that we have not had any recent sightings. But of course, always looking for a potential National Enquirer-like situation, I offer you an excerpt from an official report:

2/20/09 @ 0740, while patrolling in the area of incident location I noticed a mangy gray in color Coyote walking down Timber Jack toward Timber Grand. I honked at the Coyote in attempts to get him out of the neighborhood. I kept honking the horn of the vehicle a few times until the Coyote ran into the greenbelt area behind Timber Grand.

@ 1251 hours, Subject #1 contacted me and reported a Coyote running loose in the area of Timberwilde @ Timber Trace. I responded to the area and made contact with the Coyote in the area of Timber Canyon @ Timber Crown. The Coyote appeared to be the same one I had encountered earlier in the morning. I followed the Coyote to the area of Timber Canyon @ Timber Mill where I noticed him going into the greenbelt area. I contacted SAPD and informed them of the situation. I contacted Subject # 1 and informed him of my actions. End Report.
Strange.

Tell them to get pictures! Or at least DNA for testing.

You never know. It just might be a chupacabra. And then you'll be able to sell some T-shirts.

WV proudly has the Bat Boy. He was featured on the cover of the Enquirer. Lucky us.

Chuck McCollough of the Express-News got a picture of it. That could be the same critter.
