Legend says that chupacabras are doglike animals with long snouts that suck the blood of goats and other livestock.
Sightings of these evil-looking creatures have been reported from Latin America to the southern U.S.
While some say the chupacabra is nothing but a legend, a family has video they say might suggest otherwise.
Margaux Huckabay says her brother spotted the legendary chupacabra. Her brother quickly grabbed his phone and started recording the animal.
"It definitely looks weird," she said. "It has a really long nose and a really long tail."
Huckabay couldn't believe it and still wonders whether this is really the goat blood sucker everyone talks about.
"I actually Google-imaged chupacabra, and it looks just like the other images. It's kind of freaky," she said.
After spotting it, the next night Huckabay and her brother drove back to the area. It was nowhere to be seen.
They did, however, post it on Facebook, and people are chiming in with their thoughts.
"People were saying it's probably like a coyote with mange, but then someone wrote back that doesn't look like a coyote. It has a long tail," she said.
Either way, whatever it was, it may still be lurking around the city.
"But it would be cool if we saw it again," Huckabay said.
Many scientists believe that the animals purported to be chupacabra are coyotes with a severe infection of the animal version of scabies.
