Here's a really interesting cryptozoology story I've never heard of before. Apparently, the creature was shot and killed back in the 1800's - then stuffed, photographed, and disappeared! Until now that is...





It’s not often that there’s a mounted taxidermy example of an alleged cryptozoological beast, but in the case of the mysterious Shunka Warak’in, this might be a real possibility! The name for this legendary creepy canid was provided by the Ioway Indians, roughly translated as “carrying off dogs.” It is said to be a four-legged animal similar to a wolf or hyena which lives (or lived) in the midwestern United States, most notably in the Montana region. Little is known about Shunka, but according to the native peoples of the area, he was indeed a real animal.

You think so? Did you read the article? I don't think it looks like a wolf at all. Read the "comments" at the bottom too..

Photos from your Link:Photos Of the Beast- Jimbo999 Thread

It looks like a wolf to me as well; maybe its a rare sub-species of a wolf and /or a genetic mutation? Its interesting Non-the-Less

Interesting story, and really cool drawing. I almost want to make that my avatar picture.

This case reminds me of the chupa cabra - which I don't believe has been found yet.

Yes, fascinating story. If you read the replies at the bottom, it sounds like our stuffed friends' descendants are still knocking around, with several recent sightings...

There are wolf-like characteristics, for sure - but the sloped back, strange muzzle, and apparent stripes on the rear of the coat rule that out for me personally...

I think it looks like a pig-wolf.

Maybe its the wolf that eat the 3 little pigs and it mutated.

Are they sure it wasn't pieced together from other animals? The body looks like a boar.

I've seen dogs uglier than that.

The B&W photo from the article looks familiar? From a show theorizing on what the Chupacabra may be, the stuffed canine presented in the show, had a similar jaw line to say the least. It does look like a canid hybrid.

True I think it looks oddly reminiscent of a Pig -type wolf look at its muzzle--- you're right it does look different than a wolf and its back is hunched sorta.

I'd say its an ancestor of the pig that evolved into a wolf creature?

I though the same now that i look at it it look s like a pig wolf hybird.>

Perhaps its a ancestor from Pigs that evolved and broke-off from the wolves and involved into its own pig-wolf creature

Coyotes can get pretty frazzled & strange looking, but there are some boar-like characteristics too as has been pointed out.

Could be a real animal of some sort, but it would also be well to remember the amount of pieced together fakes the cryptozoology scene has been plagued with.

Good story though.

Or a wolf pig mix really is what it looks like...

Looks to me like the new Chupacabras has lost his hair.
