Anyone have good werewolf sightings.Has anyone else heard of this? What is your theory about the werewolf fact or fiction. Usually makes for a good movie anyway.

The earliest sightings of a werewolf in Wisconsin go back to the last century during the year 1936.

A strange creature was spotted near a country road east of Jefferson, Wisconsin. According to the witness, Mark Schackelman, he saw a man-wolf digging in what he thought was an old Indian grave. Fearing for his life, Schackelman watched the beast briefly, and then quietly fled.

Reportedly, intrigued by what he had seen, Schackelman returned to the same area the next night hoping for another glimpse of the beast. Imagine his surprise when he not only saw the creature again, but also heard it speak a bizarre, gutteral language.

Werewolf's are fiction.

If they were real, we would know about them. Bones, teeth, etc would have been found over the centuries, and confirmed the myth.

As there is 0 evidence, apart from people claiming to have seen them, and the odd doctored photo, im sticking with fake/fiction/myth.

Ive yet to see a scientific paper talking about warewolfs....wonder why?

Have you ever heard of a skinwalker? It's Native American folklore and closely resembles the idea of a werewolf.

I remember reading somewhere (maybe even ATS) that the werewolf myth stemmed from the olden days, where people noticed an increase in the raw emotional energy in human beings during a full moon.
(For example, police statistics show there are on average more crimes committed during a full moon)

Since then, I think people have tried to fit the supernatural to what some consider natural. But then again I may be wrong. Ever since I have started living my life according to moons, rather than the gregorian calender, I have noticed my emotional swells according to lunar cycles, although I realise that may be psychosomatic.

My opinion and 2 cents


ETA: Thanks for the heads-up on skinwalkers, I've never heard of that phenomenon before. Sounds very similar to some traditional African legends I am familiar with over here on this side of the world. Got some reading to do tonight

Maybe werewolves and Bigfoot are one in the same. But there's no proof for either. Oh and Isn't bigfoot protected in certain areas?

Half of my family is from wisconsin, so yea I believe it.


j/k...maybe

As for evidence, how often do you find deer antlers in the woods? Not very often cuz chipmunks and squirrels eat them. The only reason that we have fossils is because there were millions of the creatures and it defied the odds of a 1 in a million chance of being preserved. So if you have a hidden species of a few dozen, then the chances of finding evidence is slim.
And if they are werewolves, who is to say that they don't revert to their human skeleton?

On a more serious note, most likely the legends stem from that people do act crazier around the full moon. I have talked to police, doctors, nurses in the ER. And they all agree whole heartedly that they do.

Also, those with severe mental illnesses like bipolar disorder, or schizophrania, get a little more unhinged at the full moon. So much so that support groups give out full moon warnings.

I consider myself a crypto expert. Lol. In the stories I have heard they're not called werewolves, but dog men. Wisconsin and Michigan has many reported sights. The ledgend started way back in the 1700s when french canadian fur trappers reported seeing half dof/half man creatures near their camp. The hype really kicked off when the following video was released, supposedly found on 8mm in a garage sale box. I present the "Gable Film."



The video above is a HOAX, although it scared the poop outta me when I first saw it. It was admitted by the hoaxer when an episode of MonsterQuest covered the topic. It was a damn good hoax - kept people guessing for nealy 20 years. Ther hoaxer was a man from a local radio station, Steve Cook, who made his living lecutring on this "mythical beast." After the MonsterQuest reveal I exchanged harsh words with him via Facebook, as he fooled and scared a lot of folks in Michigan just for the dollar. My personal character attack on him ended when his wife stepped in and begged me to leave him alone! Lol!!! Anyway, the Gable Film is what really got the ball rolling on this werewolf/dog man story.

There have, however, been a few credible sights. One in Canada called the "Beast of Seven Chutes." Google it and you'll find the photos. Some folks were snapping photos of a waterfall (Seven Chutes), and when they uploaded theor photos for editing they noticed a dog man creature standing on a ledge in the distance.
Another credible sighting was in Wisconsin by a man hired by the DNR to pick up road kill. He stopped one night to pick up a deer, loaded into his truck and got back in to leave. He suddenly felt the truck shake, looked in his rearview mirror and watched a dog/man creature pull the deer out of his truck and start to walk away on two legs. He hit the gas and sped away, but not before the thing ripped the hitch off of his truck. He went back the next day to find it, but it was gone. Here's a link to an interview with that guy . . .


So, if you'd like more info here's a few things to Google . . .
Beast of Seven Chutes
Dogman
Beast of Bray Road

Happy crypto hunting!

Kids act crazier during the full moon. I've charted it at school. And when I used to work at a pharmacy in town, our number of prescriptions from the emergency room tripled during full moon. It really is amazing.

There are skinwalkers, who are AWOL servitors from back in the day that can assume any number of forms, but usually appear as the doppelganger of the poor human they are effing with.

And then there are wolfrunners, who are dag-nasty necromancers that earn their wolfskins (and transformative powers) by way of murdering a close kinsman.

Both of which are exclusive to the SW.

Wisconsin? There's a lot of weird crap going on there. I'd look into the Norwegian stuff, maybe.

en.wikipedia.org...


The Úlfhéðnar (singular Úlfhéðinn), mentioned in the Vatnsdœla saga, Haraldskvæði and the Völsunga saga, were said to wear the pelt of a wolf when they entered battle.[1] Úlfhéðnar are sometimes described as Odin's special warriors, with the pelt from a wolf and a spear as distinguishing features.[2]


It doesn't go into it in the Wiki, but these guys were reputed to be able to transform into humanoid wolves.

Norwegian or Navajo, you earn that skin through bloodshed. Huh.
