If you think you have seen it all at Fiesta, then you must have stopped in at this unusual booth at Fiesta Fantasias held at Market Square.

On display was a mummified chupacabra. Stevens charges $1.00 for the public to get a closeup look at what he claims is the only known chupacabra in the U.S.

But no more.

Owner Brian Stevens says the special specimen has been stolen.

“I’ve owned the chupacabra for more than a year and my partner, David Walker had owned it for two years prior” said Stevens.  “It’s one of three, and the other two are in Ensenada, Mexico where this one was purchased,” said Stevens.

Wednesday Stevens reported the theft to the San Antonio Police Department.

“We’ve contacted the owner of the other two chupacabras in Mexico and they are making arrangements to bring one on loan for the remainder of Fiesta,” said Stevens. 

Stevens is offering a reward for the return of the remains.

Call SAPD if you have any information on the mysterious disappearance of this chupacabra.
