A man living north of San Antonio says he has quite the animal sitting in his freezer -- and it may be a mythical chupacabra.
Jerry Ayer, a teacher at the Blanco Taxidermy School in Blanco, Texas, told TV station KSAT that he's never seen anything like it.
"Different, that’s for sure, very interesting," said Ayer.
The find comes amid a number of strange sightings in the area. The animal is gray in color with leathery, hairless skin and large fangs.
"The front legs seem to be a little bit longer than a typical coyote, very irregular and never seen any that have legs like that," said Ayer.
Similar animals have been spotted across the country and deep in South America.
"I don’t know what to call it, I'll just call it a chupacabra too," Ayer told KSAT.
"It got into his cousin's barn and they thought maybe it was a rodent tearing things up, and they had no idea since they’ve never seen it," said Ayer. "He got out some poison, and this is what they got the very next day."

The article says that a taxidermy student of this man left poison out when he thought a rodent of some type was getting into his barn at night. The next day the student found this corpse and took it to his teacher for identification. I agree with all of you that the lack of a photo almost makes this a non-story, however, this man plans on giving his find over to a museum, which I believe gives his story some credence.

Monster Quest has done an episode on these animals. There DNA is that of a dog, but they could not explain the mutation of some of them.
