The Dog Man
Some say the Dog Man is simply part of modern folk lore. Perhaps the people who say this have not witnessed this creature face to face? People who have been unlucky enough to be in it's vicinity are certain of what they saw!
The Dog Man can range from 5.5 feet to over 6 feet tall and has been known to kill livestock and attack people. They are sometimes spotted wearing dirty old clothes, of which are most likely stolen from clotheslines or perhaps even victims? Although the Dog Man looks like a Man. reports have been made that the Dog Man will run away if scared, and will whimper like his four legged brothers. Some say the Dog Man is simply a dog that may have taught itself to walk upright due to incurring an injury to one of its paws. So the jury is still out on what the Dog Man is.
Below are some pieces of information I have found on the Dog Man which may help you in your quest for truth.
"The first known sighting of the Michigan Dogman occurred in 1887 in Wexford County, when two lumberjacks saw a creature whom they described as having a man's body and a dog's head"1.
"Descriptions by witnesses of the Manwolf or Dogman have remained consistent over the years and across the US-- a 5-7 ft. tall creature that stands, walks or runs on its hind legs (although it can alternate between that and all fours), is covered with shaggy fur, and has a long snout, fangs, and pointed ears on top of its head, she detailed. Curiously, people often note that it has a jeering or sneering quality as though it's trying to scare them, but then quickly darts off into nearby cover. One witness, a man in Quebec province, said he was grazed by the fangs of a creature when it brushed past him, leaving him with a skin tear that required stitches."2.
