If you recall, last month we spotlighted a story from a Texas wildlife expert who claimed to have found definitive proof of the “Chupacabra,” a dog-like cryptid that has haunted folklore throughout the Americas for decades. Now we've come across a very similar account from Mississippi, where video footage reveals a creepy, gray-skinned canine lurking in the wilderness.

“If a zombie had a dog, it would look like that,” Picayune, MS resident Jennifer Whitfield told WLOX News. Whitfield and her son Justin reported seeing the creature roaming around town recently, and after posting a video of the creepy canine roaming an empty lot, they discovered they weren't the only ones who had sighted the strange visitor. Others started naming it a “Squatchdog,” i.e. Bifgoot's four-legged friend.
The Mississippi Wildlife Department claim the animal is a coyote that lost its hair due to a serious case of mange or other illness. If that's the case, let's hope they're able to find it and restore it to health... because we like to keep our monsters happy.
