And Speaking of “Half Dogs”

The tale of the tabloids! “Man captures terrifying ‘half-man, half-dog’ creature on camera that ‘stalked’ him!” proclaims the headline. The photographs are included, and you’ve never seen such a clearly defined inky black blob that could be literally anything!

Okay, just because the photos are worthless doesn’t mean the incident didn’t happen just as the witness described. But the photo sure ain’t gonna convince any skeptics.

The sighting allegedly took place in the Australian Outback. (Oh gawd, that puts me in mind of HOWLING III, and dear lawd do I wish I could forget that movie ever existed!) Anyway, says the witness: “I noticed that every time I took a stroke with the paddle of my kayak, whatever this thing was, it was taking a stride to each paddle I was taking… [this] creature, I actually got it in the photo [EDIT: no he didn’t] and what I think it is – I’ve spoken to a few people – and I reckon it’s a Dog Man…” The initial sighting didn’t freak him out so much, though, that he didn’t return to the area a second time to go fishing! And surprise, surprise, he had a second encounter! “Off to my right, I heard a bit of a bang, and then I could hear running. As it was running, it was smashing trees out of the way. I don’t know if they were breaking or it was hitting them, you couldn’t see what the bush was like because it was so thick…It would roar, and then it would take a breath in, but then the breath it was taking was actually louder than the roar it was doing… I’d never heard anything like it in my life…I could hear in my head something saying, ‘go now or you’ll die…It wasn’t my own voice, my own consciousness, it was something else.”

Strange that he didn’t hear this psychic warning during his first visit to the area.
