Leawood, KS-- I was in my kitchen making lunch, when I looked out the window, and saw what looked like a greyhound sniffing around my back yard. As watched it for a few seconds, I noticed something seemed a bit off about the dog. I noticed it had a very long, rugged looking face, with coal black eyes, and its ears seemed a like they had been burnt or deformed. I looked more closely at it, and saw the only hair it had was a thin patch around its neck. I began to think maybe it was a deer, but the way it was walking was more canine like than that of a deer. Then I thought maybe it was a coyote, but I usually only see those at night. Plus they are pretty scrawny and thin. This animal was very thin, but it was also very tall and long. The last thought I had, as it jogged away, was that I had just seen a Chupacabras!
I am an illustrator and storyboard artist, so since I did not have my phone to take a picture or video, I felt compelled to sit down and draw out what I saw. This is my illustration of the strange creature I saw.
