Texas Teen Kills Chupacabra

LA SALLE, Texas

A Texas teenager has shot a strange animal he believes may be a chupacabra.

Carter Pope, 13, said he woke up Sunday at his home in La Salle and saw a strange animal walking across his backyard.

"Something slowly came across and started shaking, slowly moving across," Carter said. "It was gray, no hair at all. I thought that's a chupacabra."

Carter said he ran to his parents' room to wake up his dad to come see what he had discovered.

"I thought I'm dreaming or this kid is crazy," said Carter's father, Will. "Probably a little bit of both."

Will Pope said when he went outside with his son, he was amazed at the strange creature.

Carter said it was about 200 feet away when he fired three shots before the animal stopped moving.

Some believe a chupacabra is an animal that sucks the blood of livestock. It's a strange-looking thing with barely any hair. For many, it is a thing of legends. Some wildlife biologists believe it is a sick coyote or other wild animal.

Carter said he took hair and skin samples to get tested to put an end to the mystery once and for all.
