KPHO Reporting on Mythical Creatures and UFOs Again

In less than a year, KPHO -- always "Telling it Like it is" -- has managed to run three stories about chupacabra sightings.

Now the local news station is tackling bigger and badder mythical beasts, hooking up with the Navajo Nation Rangers to check out "investigative reports" of other creatures that don't actually exist.

KPHO is now looking into the non-chupacabra side of the paranormal, including -- in the words of our local KPHO anchor -- "ghosts, witchcraft, UFOs, even... Bigfoot."

The Navajo Rangers have been investigating these types of things for about 10 years now, but when there are UFOs and chupacabras to be found, KPHO always seems to be there.

According to the investigative reporter in the segment, "Here in Arizona, so-called paranormal activity is abundant."

As you may recall, the last time KPHO was reporting on UFOs, things got pretty serious:

The National Weather Service said it wasn't a weather event.  NWS meteorologists said they were at a loss.  They said there have been sightings all the way to Los Angeles.

"My hubby was outside," said Stephanie Scovell in a Facebook post. "He said it was like a meteor burning up."

Another viewer said he thought it was an American satellite that was falling out of orbit and breaking apart.

And here's how the Phoenix Police Department described it to us:

We received four calls (total) regarding the light in the sky. Our air unit, myself, and other officers also observed it as well. We all made our wishes and went back to work. Nothing more to report...

Have a safe night.

This time, KPHO has a pair of experts -- one of them describing being followed around by a ball of light for half an hour -- as well as the video montage of "confidential documents."
