KPHO Thinks it Saw a Chupacabra...Again
|KPHO: "Telling it like it is" -- even when it comes to animals that don't actually exist.|

Under the headline "Could it Be? Another Chupacabra Sighting?" KPHO reporter Steve Stout tells the tale of a Tucson meteorologist who claims he saw a chupacabra.
According to Stout, "some think it's the chupacabra, the creature of urban legend."
"Rumors of the mythical creature have been bouncing around the Southwest for half-century. [Chupacabras are] said to attack goats and livestock," Stout explains in the article.
Again, just to be clear, chupacabras aren't real -- but that hasn't stopped KPHO from reporting on them every time someone sees a sick coyote.
Last April, KPHO claimed there was a potential chupacabra sighting in
Goodyear. The station even had video of the alleged beast, which you can
However, because chupacabras aren't real, and all, the animal seen in the video the station cited as evidence was more likely an ugly dog, or malnourished coyote, than the blood-slurping subject of urban legends.
In July, the station
reported on a Texas boy who claimed he fatally shot a chupacabra. The
boy turned out to be wrong -- again, because chupacabras aren't real.
