After several alarming clashes, residents of the North American state of California fear that the legendary Chupacabra has started up in the vicinity of Box Springs! Three eyewitnesses, each of whom saw a strange creature with a naked pink body and a long rat tail, believe that it was the famous blood-sucking cryptid (see video below).
The most recent incident took place in Riverside last week. On Thursday, July 20, 2017, Carey Shuker noticed that his cat jumped into the house, frightened by something in the yard. When he looked out into the street, he saw a large animal with fangs sticking out of the jaw up and down, which was larger than the largest coyote.
“He stood there and looked at me,” said a local resident, whose home sits at the foot of Box Springs Mountain, which separates the Moreno Valley and Riverside. "It was the ugliest creature I've ever seen."
Shuker shouted loudly, "Get out of here!" But the creature growled at him, and then slowly moved away. “Anyway, he scolded me … He was hunting my cat, and I stole his breakfast,” Shuker said. - It sounds like the craziest and most invented story. But this is not so."
A retired woman named Blunt echoed Shuker's story, claiming that she saw this hairless animal last year.
“Deer ears, long muzzle, rat-like tail and long back,” she said. "I thought it was a sick coyote or a sick wolf."
Tom Brundidge, the last eyewitness, encountered the mysterious animal back in April and decided that it was a hybrid of some marsupial and a dog that came from the territory of Mexico.
Despite reports from three different people who are likely familiar with all the animals found in the Box Springs mountains, California does not take these encounters too seriously. And a spokesman for the state's Department of Fisheries and Wildlife said that "Chupacabra is not a recognized species."
