A zoo in Amarillo, Texas, is trying to identify a strange figure that was caught on camera lurking just outside a chain-link perimeter fence.
The Amarillo Zoo posted a night-vision photo on Twitter requesting help identifying the “Unidentified Amarillo Object” outside the zoo “in the dark and early morning hours.”
“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?” the caption asks.
“In the spirit of fun if not curiosity, the City of Amarillo is letting the public offer ideas on the identity of the UAO,” the city of Amarillo posted on their website.
“Was it a person with a strange hat who likes to walk at night? A large coyote on its hind legs? A Chupacabra? It is a mystery – for Amarillo to help solve,” the city said.
“We just want to let the Amarillo community have some fun with this. It is important to note that this entity was outside the Amarillo Zoo. There were no signs of attempted entry into the zoo. No animals or individuals were harmed. There were no signs of criminal activity or vandalism,” said the city’s Director of Parks and Recreation Michael Kashuba.
“It is definitely a strange and interesting image. Maybe Amarillo can help solve the mystery of our UAO.”
The folks on Twitter were happy to oblige:
