CUERO, TX (WFLX) - A sheriff's department in Texas believes it may have caught the legendary chupacabra on camera.

Deputies on patrol recorded what they believe is the mythical creature running down a road.

It looks sort of like a coyote, but it's hairless with a long snout.

The deputies and even the sheriff are baffled. "I've been covering these back roads for a long time, and I've never run across anything like this, until that day," says Cpl. Brandon Riedel.

Deputies believe the video may start a new rash of chupacabra sightings in the county. He says, he's willing to work with credible researchers who want to look at the video and help solve this mystery.
