Reminds me of an old episode of Unsolved Mystery's about the chuppacabra. Remember that guys? The huge craze back in 1996ish.
I remember!!! When I was a little kid one night my sisters and I were playing cards at the kitchen table, the back door that led to the back yard was open, and through the screen door you could see nothing but the darkness of the night.
Nothing like telling a little kid about the chupacabras in the middle of the night.
