Possible 'NOT DEER' Seen in Champaign, Illinois Neighborhood

An Illinois woman was working in her yard when she saw an unrecognizable animal. It was the size of a fawn but looked like a hybrid of a dog and a deer. She hasn't seen it since.

The following account was forwarded to me:

"This happened in 2020 in Champaign, Illinois. I live in a neighborhood in town, a few blocks away from main city streets (around Mattis and University, if you're familiar with the area). I was in the front yard doing some yard work. The west side of the yard is lined with tall evergreens, but they are sparse enough to see through to the lot next to me and the house on the other side of the lot.

I paused from working and noticed some movement through the trees - an animal running/trotting from the back of the lot to the street. I decided to watch it, just in case it was the dog from the house on the other side of the lot and needed to be returned to the owner.

When the animal entered the street, my immediate thought was that it was a baby deer - it ran like a deer and was about that size. But then I realized it wasn't a deer - its body looked more like a dog (like a greyhound or whippet). It really looked like a cross between a deer and a dog but looked like neither. It just didn't look... right.

It was a solid tan color (no spots/markings), and had a long slender tail, muzzle/snout, and body. I believe it also had long ears that it held back against its head. It made no sound as it ran and only looked straight ahead as it crossed the street into the overgrown backyard of an abandoned house.

I only saw it for a few seconds, but I got a good look at it. I know it could have been a dog, but it just didn't move like a dog. My husband thinks it may be some sort of cryptid. Has anyone seen anything like this?" T

EL CHUPACABRAS - ALIEN or SOMETHING ELSE? | Join Us For LIVE CHAT | Questions & Answers #Chupacabras

The legend of El Chupacabras (translated as 'the goat-suckers) began in about 1992, when Puerto Rican newspapers El Vocero and El Nuevo Dia began reporting the killings of many different types of animals, such as birds, horses, and as its name implies, goats. At the time it was known as El Vampiro de Moca since some of the first killings occurred in the small town of Moca. While at first it was suspected that the killings were done randomly by some members of a satanic cult, eventually these killings spread around the island, and many farms reported loss of animal life. The killings had one pattern in common: each of the animals found dead had two punctured holes around their necks.

Soon after the animal deaths in Puerto Rico, other animal deaths were reported in other countries, such as the Dominican Republic, Argentina, Bolivia, Chile, Colombia, El Salvador, Panama, Peru, Brazil, the United States, and, most notably, Mexico.

Both in Puerto Rico and Mexico, El Chupacabra gained urban legend status. Chupacabra stories began to be released several times in American and Hispanic newscasts across the United States.

The chupacabra is generally treated as a product of mass hysteria, though the animal mutilations are real. Like many cases of such mutilations, however, it's been argued that they are often not as mysterious as they might first appear.

Descriptions of the physical appearance of each specimen can resemble descriptions of other specimens or differ from other descriptions. Although they have different appearances, El Chupacabras are typically 3 feet or taller, they are roughly humanoid in shape as they are bipedal with 2 arms and are described as otherworldly creatures.

So, are El Chupacabras an alien entity, or are they something else? Listen to the accounts and form your opinions.
