Mystery animal found on Kentucky farm

Sometimes, there are things that defy explanation and you have to see it to believe it.

That's what a Nelson county farmer says after finding a strange creature on his property.

Mark Cothern says he noticed the animal outside his farmhouse.

He first grabbed his binoculars then go his rifle and shot it.

The experienced hunter and trapper says he's never seen anything like it.

Theories on what it is range from a big rat to the legendary chupacabra -- an elusive dog-like creature rumored to attack livestock.

The Kentucky Department of Fish and Wildlife will test the animal's DNA.
