Whitley Talks on Coast About New Elmendorf Beast
Click to Enlarge
A mystery animal identical to the Elmendorf Beast has been found in Lufkin, Texas, approximately 300 miles northeast of Elmendorf, where the first
animal was shot in May. Photographs of both animals make it clear that they are virtually identical. Whitley will be talking about it with Art Bell on
Coast to Coast AM, Saturday, Oct. 16 at 10 pm Pacific.
At this time, it is known that the animal is canine, but no species has yet been identified.It is apparently not a wolf, coyote, or any known breed of
dog, unless the animal has some sort of bizarre and profound disease. It is not an exotic creature like a thylacine, an Australian marsupial wolf. It
has also been speculated that the animal might be a muntjac, a small deer species. But the muntjac has hooves, not claws, and does not have a long
tail. Another creature that has been brought up is a rare Peruvian dog, the Peruvian Inca Orchid, which has a similar tail.
According to Stacy Womack, who has more than 20 years of experience in the veterinary field, "It's not a dog." Womack was called to photograph the
animal, and help identify it. As she was arriving at the scene, a live animal, just like the one that had been discovered dead, crossed the road in
front of a car.
Like the Elemendorf Beast, the animal did not bleed upon being shot. It, also, appeared to be in a state of necrosis, although it had just died. Both
animal's skin is blue-gray and appears to be covered with mange. The creature has a pronounced overbite and four enormous caninines. San Antonio Zoo
biologist Terry DeRosa speculated that "It may be one of the hairless dogs that perhaps you see in Mexico." However, at twenty pounds or more, it is
much larger than the Perro pelon mexicano, the Mexican hairless, which comes in miniature and standard sizes. In addition, the exaggerated canines and
extremely long claws are not characteristic of any known breed of dog.
The Lufkin animal was shot and killed after going under a house. The family dog was terrified of it and would not go under the house with it. The
homeowner shot the animal and dragged it out with a rope. Upon observing the animal a short time later, Womak says, "It was so necrotic, the tissue
was just rotted." The animal's ear crumbled when touched.
In addition, there are reports of similar animals, also hairless, being seen in a number of other states, including California and possibly Maryland.
In August, Unknowncountry.com sent bones and a tooth from the Elmendorf animal to the University of California, Davis, testing facility, but as of
October 14, had not received test results. Unknowncountry.com will report its DNA findings as soon as they are available.
Starting this weekend, subscribers can listen as Stacy Womack tells Whitley exactly what she found, and describes seeing another of the animals run
across a road in the same area.
