I caught an episode of the television series TERROR IN THE WOODS the other day that really stood out to me. Paired with yet another story of a frightening Bigfoot encounter (which is what most of the stories featured on this program involve) was a segment entitled “It Came from Hell” and described an encounter by two eyewitnesses with a Dogman or Dogmen. The reasons this particular segment snagged my attention were because (A) it involved Dogmen, aka werewolves, (B) the Dogmen behaved in a manner particularly aggressive, even by Dogmen standards, and (C), with this latter being the primary reason, this encounter found Dogmen doing the very things I have my own werewolf doing in my novel THERIOPHOBIA: FEAR THE BEAST, which is available in segments right here on this website.
The Dogman (or DogMEN, as there might have been more than one) were larger than the ones usually described, as big as my monster in the novel, standing maybe ten feet tall when posed in a bipedal stance. As far as standing went, the beast shifted from a four-legged posture to a two-legged one, with a snapping sound indicative of bones realigning themselves—which is exactly what my werewolf does in the book! And here I thought I’d made all that stuff up. Turns out werewolves really do possess those very attributes.
