“The Amarillo Zoo captured a strange image outside the zoo in the dark and early morning hours of May 21 (around 1:25 a.m.),” wrote the City of Amarillo, from their official Twitter account. “Is it a person with a strange hat who likes to walk at night? A chupacabra? Do you have any ideas of what this UAO- Unidentified Amarillo Object could be?”
There is always a possibility that the entire ordeal could have been a hoax, but since the sighting occurred no reports vandalism or criminal activity that stem from the incident. For now, city officials and upper management at the Amarillo Zoo are still trying to ascertain the evidence while also prioritizing the safety of the animals behind the park’s gates.
The sighting even prompted a response from Amarillo Director of Parks and Recreation Michael Kashuba. “It is important to note that this entity was outside the Amarillo Zoo. There were no signs of attempted entry into the zoo.”
The identity of the creature from the aforementioned photograph still has not been confirmed. For more on this story, click the link below.
