VICTORIA, Texas (WTVR) – An animal shot and killed outside a Texas couple’s home was a mythical Chupacabra, according to Doug and Lucy Ohrt. The Ohrts said their grandson shot the creature on their Texas ranch Sunday night.

But experts do not believe the slain animal is a  Chupacabra.

“They’re a mythical creature, but what most people see it really is sarcoptic mange which is caused by a mite that bites the animal,” Wildlife Biologist Josh Turner told “It can be on any mammal dogs, cats,  coyotes, foxes, and humans can get another version of it as well.”
