Arizona is a hotbed for urban legends. From the state's own Bigfoot, to blood-sucking monsters, to a lady who snatches up kids, and more, we bring you 10 imaginary things that Arizonans believe in:
Taco trucks serve up some of the best tacos we've had, and it's always a thrill to pull up to a random truck and scope their menu to see what they have that the last truck didn't have. Phoenix has a seemingly endless supply to choose from for those late-night cravings for fresh Mexican food. We too ... More >>
The number-one story on the CBS 5 website at the time of this post is a report of a man who claims he has a Bigfoot corpse.This, of course, comes from the local news station that claims to be "telling it like it is" -- with a history of reports on alleged evidence of UFOs, chupacabras, and Bigfoot.
When 30-year-old Brandon Bennett was deciding on the name for his food truck, he landed on the nickname his friends in Arizona called him when he moved to the Valley from Eugene, Oregon, in 1994: Yeti.

Say what you will about the local TV news-hounds at KPHO, but the station is again leading the way in chupacabra-related journalism -- for the third time in less than a year, KPHO is reporting a sighting of the mythical animal, which doesn't actually exist.If you're unfamiliar with the fictitious ...

Unless it comes to mythical beasts that don't actually exist.For the second time this year, KPHO is "Telling it Like it is" about mythical chupacabras.
