Yesterday morning, my Dad and I were watching out the window towards the creek that runs along the back of their property and this strange creature trotted by. I said, "What the heck is that"? My Dad grabbed his camera and said that it was a coyote. It was not a coyote. It ran like a hyena. Fortunately for us, it was kind enough to stop a couple of times to shake, making it possible for my Dad to get a good photo of it.
I told him that it was a chupacabra. It is actually a Xoloitzcuintli. It's a rather odd creature. The picture was taken in Bastrop on Pine Creek. My parents have seen lots of wildlife, but nothing like this!
