Detectives in Texas have issued photo-fit descriptions of three Irish Nationals they would like to interview in connection with the discovery of the body of a Chupacabra.
The three men, in their mid to late twenties, stayed two nights at the travelers rest motel in Blanco, San Antonio and were involved in an altercation with other residents in the motel bar in the early hours of Sunday morning shortly before they left without paying for their room.
Motel manager Abel Rodriguez says he was suspicious about the trio as soon as they booked in.
"They ordered six evening meals of Texan T-Bone, three well done and three rare, the the rare steaks were delivered out to the van and I just assumed they had some kind of a family pet in there."
According to eye witness reports one of the group took three unidentified dog sized creatures for a walk as soon as darkness fell even taking the opportunity to stop for a chat with local resident Hal. Pienerman.
"He tried to sell me a generator and a replica Makita hammer drill, he was quite insistent and I have to admit I was kinda tempted, his prices were quite reasonable. 250 bucks the lot.
I bought the drill, 50 dollars, it'll do as a spare but I was most interested in the dogs he was walking, they were wearing long rain macs even though it was hot and dry."
Mr Pienerman is in no doubt that the animals he saw were Chupacabra's.
"I asked him what breed they were and he told me they were greyhounds in training, I think they wuz Chupacabra, right there. I'm lucky to be alive"
Police believe that the mutant dog like creatures are bred at a puppy farm somewhere in County Galway in Ireland and are being used in secret international dogfighting competitions.
Police in Queensland Australia have also expressed an interest in interviewing the three Irish Travellers over allegations of "Bunyip" baiting in Brisbane.
