Man Claims He Has Killed A Mythical Creature

Lena, MS -

A man in Mississippi says he's killed a legendary creature: a Chupacabra. But, we do want to warn you that this video and pictures could be graphic.

Matt Hewharrel kept the body of the animal.

According to legend, Chupacabras suck the blood from livestock.

Hewharrel says he shot the mysterious creature in a chicken coop Wednesday night. He says he saw glowing red eyes in the hay, and when it moved to attack, he shot it.

"I reloaded my gun. I walked over there and when I shined the light down on him and I said, 'my God!' And, I unloaded on him again to make sure he was dead," Hewharrel says.

Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries, and Parks officials believe the animal is actually a coyote with the mange. However, Hewharrel doesn't buy that.
