Newport Beach Werewolf? What’s Going On Here?

Posted by Xavier Ortega | December 8, 2009 32


A while back I wrote about the “Dogman of Southern California“. An account of a few guys who had ran into some creature they could not explain.

Werewolves are mythical creatures, yet so many reports are seen each year about werewolf sightings that it makes no sense. Like Bigfoot, these reports come from all over the US.
Unlike Bigfoot, these reports have less credibility; given what we know about science.

Stephen Wagner from shares a story that was submitted to him from a person who witnessed what he claims was a pack of werewolves in Newport Beach California. Not too far from Redlands, CA. The site of the previous “dogman” story.

Another southern California werewolf report?

I better stop drinking the water around here……

My sighting took place around 11:30 p.m. on November 4, 2009. I work for the local 73 toll road in Newport Beach, California, and lately we’ve had some construction on the surrounding roads for the past few months. I am a third-shift manager (2 p.m.-11 p.m.), and every night driving home I take the exact same route at pretty much the same time every night.

On this night, I was coming off the exit for the 133 road connector, and I’ll never forget what I saw. While stopped at the stop light, I saw a group of three large, four-legged creatures dash out from the trees along the road. I started second guessing myself and tried to convince myself I was seeing things. I made the left turn at the light, and while the speed limit was still 40 mph at this part, I looked up and almost peed my pants. Those three beasts were running upright! The wolves, which seems to be the most logical guess, were about 6.5 feet tall and looked like they easily weighed 250-275 pounds each. They had snouts and mouths that almost could be expressive (being able to smile/frown) and the fur was dark, although there wasn’t enough light to tell if it was dark brown or black.

My car being a 6-cylinder, it could get going if need be. I was going 45 mph and the giant wolves were keeping up with ease. I then literally put the pedal to the metal and sped up to 70. I was sweating profusely and having a panic attack. As I sped up to 70, the wolves stopped following me, considering I was about to enter a high-traffic part of the road. The wolf in front seemed to stop on a dime and watch me drive off.

I did not hear any howls before or after the sighting. I proceeded to head home ASAP. I told my girlfriend what I saw and she deemed my “imagination was running wild.” I also told my coworkers the next day following the sighting, but nobody believes me to this day. I know I’m not crazy and I know what I saw. I still have been taking the same route home every night and have not run into anything since that night of the sighting. Who knows what they actually were, but all I know is I do not want to run into them again.

  • Wow. That story was remarkably similar to events going on in my neighborhood as I am typing this. The description perfectly matches something I, and my friends, have seen multiple times. My blog (The Beast of Kellogg Creek) has the whole story so far posted.

  • Sarpanit

    you are not crazy don’t ask me how I know I’m not a believe cause to believe means you trust in something that you haven’t seen yet but know is there. I know for a fact that they are real, and so are vampires, and shape shifters.

  • jellybeans

    Boy do I know your telling the truth. They most certainly do resemble werewolves and are frighteningly tall. I have encountered two sightings of the same werewolf. One encounter was much to close for comforter. I had sense that it stalks me but I have no idea for what purpose :s

  • AaronD2012

    Hmm, so werewolves can run 45 mph, but not 70? And what would they do if they’d catch you? Dang, I used to have a silver bullet for my .44, seriously!

  • Werewolf girl

    It started out when I was 8 years old I was visiting the zoo and I went to see the wolves and one just halfly had a humens eye it was different to me because the wolf in the picture on the sign had a grey wolf’s eye and the rest did too sow I just went back after starring at the wolf’s eyes I went and huged my dad cause I was scared. Then we went home after I felt sick and my teeth just changed and I guess then I felt like a grey wolf
