The Beast of Bray Road

Is it a werewolf or something entirely different? Ever since the 1980s there have been many reported sightings in Elkhorn, Wisconsin of some unknown creature, now known as the Beast of Bray Road.

Witnesses have said a few different things about the beast – some say it resembles a hairy biped like Bigfoot. Others have said that it’s an unusually large and highly intelligent wolf that able to walk on its hind legs. Then there are those that say it’s a mix of the two above.

Newspapers and other various reports have labeled it a werewolf even though no one has seen it shapeshift. But, there is one witness that claims to have seen it morph from a wolf-headed human to an ape-headed one. Not all reported accounts are as ridiculous as that though. Two men reported that when driving home from a friend’s house they saw a big creature kneeling on the side of the road eating road kill. The second one of them rolled their window down the creature spotted them and instantly attacked the car. The two men fled and reported the incident to the authorities, but no evidence was found except for large claw marks down the side of their car.

Even though know one has found the actual beast, people still believe all the rumors and reports. Once, the authorities arrested a man for DWI and on the man they found a gun with silver bullets. The frightened man said it was for protection, just in case.

There have been many theories on the Beast of Bray Road, some of which include…

  • The beast is actually a new breed of wild dog
  • It is a cryptid named the Shunka Warakin (a wolf-like or hyena beast)
  • It is the waheela (a massive prehistoric wolf)
  • It is a skinwalker from Native American legend

Chances are it is probably a result of mass hysteria – something that grew into this huge thing by a bunch of attention seeking and scared people. It doesn’t help that each witness account is different from the others. But who knows.

  1. I heard about it from this kid who just moved from Elkhorn. He claims he has seen the beast face to face. But his head could just be filled with fluff.

  2. this is an interesting story i think that i might go and find this guy. he’d be a good addition to my pack.and sorry Wolf but you can’t become a werewolf just by bing biten, i know because i am a werewolf hybrid

  3. Linda Godfrey is the reporter who investigated the Bray Road sitings. She wrote _The Beast of Bray Road_ and _Hunting The American Werewolf_ both excellent cryptozoology books.

  4. I am a werewolf, and thus I am glad that others do believe… Hopefully, our kind will be respected more…

    1. if any of you are true werewolves prove it, show us a video or pic that can be tested and see if it is a fake. i have been in Virginia were supposedly some either Grimms or a form of werewolf exist. i have even been out on back country roads in a full moon and have never felt scarred or in danger, as a matter of fact i have a tremendous fear of werewolves and am trying to get over that.

    1. You say “you humans” as in you aren’t one yourself? I mean I agree with what you’re saying it just sounds a bit odd in that tense…

  5. A real werewolf wouldnt announce its existence to the world just to provide proof it is in fact real.Think of it this way,If you had an amazing gift,Or you weren’t a “normal human”,Would you want the media to exploit you? Would you want to be experimented on or even captured? It’s very ignorant to ask for proof especially when you don’t know of the dangers that it brings.Humans like you are the reasons creatures such as werewolves want to remain hidden.

  6. first of all i grew up around elkorn and the bray road beast was to be found nothing more than a timber wolf that weighed 160 lbs and was missing a front leg giving the appearence that it walked on its hind legs later trapped and released elsewhere by the dnr second anyone that beleives they are a werewolf or vampire or whatever is nuts and i dont need to prove that cuz your doing that well enough on your own.

  7. there has to be a reason why theres a myth out there about warewolves! I don’t think its a myth! it has to be real!

  8. If there were any truth to this crock of shat, the state of Wisconsin would have had cameras in the woods or even drones to capture a better picture of this alleged beast… even the movie it’s allegedly eating and killing people, boy they really sugar coating this beast in this movie… I bet bath salt is out up there. They seeing all kinds of cray shit! Crazies running around seeing crap. Get a real investigation going on w real proof and then maybe I’ll believe it. Better yet smoke some more cray weed you cray cray people:) lmao
