Natomas Chupacabra Not

THE NATOMAS BUZZ | @natomasbuzz

The mysterious canine photographed recently in Natomas is not the one creature puzzling us humans.

Well, we have had some hearty debate on what type of animal that might be and cannot seem to agree!   We can certainly dispatch an Animal Control Officer to check the area.  If spotted, there are options for trapping or if necessary, tranquilizing it.  Let me know if it is creating some type of nuisance or is aggressive in any way.
Once I hear back from you, we can determine next steps.

    • Heather Masten Its a coyote. I saw it up close on East Commerce Parkway. It looks like its in pretty rough shape.
    • Susan Miller Wells I saw him maybe a month ago on a bike ride. I, at first, thought it was a deer, then a coyote, but one of my biking mates said it was a dog. It looked near death then. I called the City, Animal Contol, and they said someone would be out, but it might take a day or two. Can Angelique Ashby“s office help?

    • Denise Thomas Doughty There are abandoned animals in the Regional Park all the time – it is so sad!

    • Kristie Ehrhardt This is someone’s dog that was left to die, it’s not a coyote. Some a$$hole turned it loose, expecting someone else to take care of it. Obviously that hasn’t happened. Has anyone seen it recently? Clearly it’s not in good shape and needs assistance ASAP.

    • Angela Wahl ‎@Kristie I also would like to know if anyone has recently seen the dog, I went out after work yesterday and walked and walked and did not see it.

    • Kristie Ehrhardt I’m going to look for it today. I can’t stand to let it starve to death. If anyone locates it please post so we can try to help it.
