The chupacabra is back.

A Kentucky man claims he shot and killed a hairless creature that resembles others seen in Texas and other states.

Mark Cothren said he spotted the animal on his lawn.

It reportedly had large ears, whiskers and a long tail. It was about the size of a house cat.

There have been several chupacabra sightings over the past years, but some say it's merely a coyote with mange.
