The Androscoggin County Werewolf?

May 4th, 2010 § 10

Most werewolf folktales are from centuries ago, long before they had the knowledge we have now to explain strange occurrences. Yet even now in our time of science and logic some continue to believe in the weird and paranormal, which we saw a few years back in Turner, Maine.

In 2006 a mysterious creature was hit by a car in Turner, Maine and it triggered all sorts of paranoia and questions. The furry carcass was photographed and inspected by many people who lived in the area, but no one had any clue what it was. Thus causing a storm of theories – mutant, inbreeding, werewolf…etc. Photos of the beast spread all over the media and internet, and everyone seemed to have their own explanation of what the hell it was.

The creature was charcoal gray, weighed between 40 and 50 pounds and had a bushy tail, a short snout, short ears and curled fangs hanging over its lips. According to Loren Coleman, a Portland author and crypto zoologist, it looked like something out of a Stephen King story.

In the previous 15 years before the discovery of the strange carcass, residents across Androscoggin County had reported seeing and hearing a mysterious animal with chilling monstrous howls and eyes that glow in the night. The animal had been blamed for attacking and killing a doberman pinscher and a rottweiler. So when the body of the Turner beast was found many assumed it was the same monster that had been prowling the area for years. This gave the local legend a whole new life.

But, it was later confirmed by genetic testing that the mysterious creature was in fact, a wolf-dog hybrid. It was simply a freakish mutt, not a werewolf. Either way, it’s amazing how many people in this modern world of ours full-heartedly believed that the creature was a werewolf, or some other supernatural being.

    Um, can we comment about this actual blog?

    I would’ve thought it was an inbred dog if I had seen it but not tested it. Werewolves! How do people think every single weird thing that isn’t explained right away is a werewolf?
    It was small, for one.

  9. check out paranormal stories. there’s an episode on wolf packs, that stand up. freaky. It’s probably extra terrestrial bio suits. They say that strange lights always precede the wolf sightings.
