13-year-old Shoots Chupacabra

13-year-old Carter Pope of La Salle, Texas, claims to have shot and killed what he thinks may be a chupacabra. His father doubted his claim until he saw the carcass for himself. "It looks like nothing I have ever personally seen before," Carter's father told reporters.

Carter said the creature was "moving slowly across" an open field near his home when he saw it and he immediately thought it was a chupacabra. "It started shaking slowly. There was no hair at all on it. Its back legs were shriveled up." The creature was about 200 yards from where Carter stood. He shot it three times.

Pictures of the beast appear to show what is likely to be a coyote or wild dog with mange, but skin from the possible chupacabra has been sent to labs for testing.
