Based in Brooklyn, NY, I write about all things creepy and strange. My book based on the real haunting of Doris Bither (The Entity 1982 movie) will be released soon. Got a question? Drop me a line.

What the hell is going on in Wisconsin?

You all know how skeptical we here at GhostTheory are. Sometimes we even come off as being too tough on people. For example take the case with “Extreme Paranormal“.

The reason why is because in this field, criticism and misconceptions are harsh. It only takes a pair of fools to slip up and add another coat of tarnish to the the word parapsychology. Most of the public’s exposure to the paranormal has come from reality TV. Rarely do I meet someone who knows a thing or two about parapsychology or abnormal psychology. When I say parapsychology, they think “oh, you mean stuff like ‘Paranormal State’ ?”

So when I first started reading into the so called “Wisconsin Werewolf” mysteries I was assuming this would be a “chupacabra hysteria”. Something with no substance. Then I started corresponding with Linda Godfrey. She’s the investigator behind the these cases. The infamous Beast of Bray Road.

The more I talked with her, the more I start to think: “What if..?”

What if the reported sightings are not just from drunks looking for attention? What if the reported sightings were not a hoax? What if something did exist that is not currently known to science?

The more I learned that Linda Godfrey herself was skeptical of these things, the more I began to be open minded. Linda believes that what these credible witnesses are seeing is something not known to man. The possibilities of a wolf-hybrid seem possible. A mutated wold that can walk on it’s hind legs? Maybe. A werewolf? Not likely.

So why do people still continue to report sightings of these creatures?

Do you guys remember the “Gable film” & “Gable film 2” saga ?

Those films only left more questions and the possibility of it all being a hoax behind. Then again we have the single eyewitness reports like that of government worker Steve Krueger from the Wisconsin DNR, who reported seeing this beast eating at a deer carcass he had just picked up. He described it as 6-7 feet tall, long snout (longer than a bear) and pointy ears.

Or like one of our reader’s account:

My name is Eric I spent many days {years} out on hospital rd as my best friend lived there when we were 11 until now. I am currently 30 yrs old and I guarantee that this bray road beast is very real. I cant even talk about it with-out tears coming to my eyes. First I will tell you that I really didnt believe in anything like this but this baby is the real deal.Ok there were three of us camping and we started a small fire and suddenly realised that we needed a couple of chairs. At this point two of us left on the tractor with a trailer to make the long trek back to the house to grab the chairs and a couple other needed items for camping. On our way back we encountered our good friend pale white running with everything he had to get somewhere safe! He told us there was something like a warewolf out there and there was no way he was ever going back out there nor back to this area. The farm boy we were with just laughed because he didnt believe in this type of thing either!!! The two of us went out there to the campsite only for a split second and right away the howling began. I couldnt believe what I was hearing but as the howling got closer and I caught a glimpse of what was out there with my spotlight and I totally freaked out, started my dirtbike and my big farmboy friend was screaming your not leaving me!! He jumed on the tractor and i have never rode so fast in my life across a fully tilled field with-out caring about anything but getting away!! He was so mad and scared at the same time because the tractor was not nearly as fast as a dirtbike but at this point i was saving my own ass!! Its true it stands on its hind legs and is vicious as hell looking and its howl is something so scary sounding that its unimaginable to say the least. Ill NEVER GO BACK OUT THERE NOT EVEN WITH A GUN.

I don’t know what people are reporting, but like Linda Godfrey, I believe that there is something out there that is causing these reports. Werewolf or not, there’s something out there.

    I believe you, I seen this creature too. Wolf like head, the nose was a bit longer, with a human like body but not quit with fur all over it. It still gives me nightmares.

  • Desiree Shorting

    I completely agree with you. Being older it still gives me nightmares.

  • Joe DeHoyos

    This creature is absolutely real, however I think it might be some sort of canid + sasquatch hybrid. Or it’s simply a type of canid completely unknown to science. I remember hearing a “Dogman Encounters” episode where a little girl came face to face with one of these creatures that was on all fours. She said as it stood up on his hind legs she could hear the cartilage in it’s joints make crackling and popping sounds as it slowly stood upright, as if it was something it physically wasn’t designed to do…yet it did anyway. I always found that little detail interesting.
