A Florida woman – of course – found the carcass of a unique looking animal in her backyard. Now no one seems to know what the hell it is.
A dead creature found Friday in the backyard of a Titusville home is creating an online buzz.
The mystery started when Kelly Garrahan, who lives near Diary and Diamond roads, snapped photos of the carcass and posted them on Facebook.
“I found this in my yard…has anyone seen this thing before or know what it could be?” The mystery creature is an estimated 2 to 3 feet long from tip to tail.
A biologist told Garrahan the animal was an opossum, but others had their own ideas, including a coyote, a dog, the skin of an alligator, a dead otter or even a chupacabra.
Pennsylvania (and parts of Philadelphia) are chock full of possums, and I’d see them all the time when I worked the overnight shift. No offense to the biologist, but I don’t believe for a minute that it’s a possum carcass. I’m leaning toward chupacabra.
