In this article we will be taking a closer look at the Beast of Bray Road legend that originates from near Elkhorn, in Wisconsin…
What is the Beast of Bray Road?
Numerous people claimed to have encountered this beast around the Racine, Walworth and Jefferson counties in Wisconsin.
Some locals to these areas, refer to the creature as a ‘Manwolf’, whilst others firmly believe it is a descendant from the werewolf family. There have even been rumors floating about linking the strange creature to the Bigfoot legend.
There have never been any specimens found that relate to this animal – so it could well be a creature we are already well aware of…
Did these sightings originate from a large canine animal that simply scared the witnesses into believing it was something paranormal?
Skeptics to the subject believe these sightings are nothing more than simple encounters with local wolves and bears.
So what does this creature look like?
Why does it strike fear into the hearts of those who come across it’s path?
It’s frequently been described as well over 6 foot in height and covered in a strange grayish and brown fur. Witnesses claim it bears a wolf’s face and has three long clawed digits on each hand.
It’s eyes are said to glow yellow.
The body is very similar to a muscle-bound Hollywood actor – witnesses claim that it is extremely lean and that it sits back on its haunches, and sometimes even appears to be kneeling.
It moves in two ways – some say it runs on all fours, whilst others claim it can run like a man (on two legs).
Many of the reported sightings have witnessed the animal feeding off the local wildlife.
It has never managed to hurt anyone but it has acted extremely aggressive at times – chasing onlookers and even jumping on the bonnets of approaching cars.
Beast of Bray Road Sightings
Sightings of the Beast of Bray Road may go back as far as the 1930’s…but the most famous sightings come from the 1989 to the 1992 range.
Most of these ‘more modern’ sightings have involved the creature feeding off the carcass of some dead animal.
These sightings have slowed down since the mid 90’s but there are still reports of it being spotted in the local forest or wood areas.
So what is this strange beast?
Is it a true cryptid that has no real fear of us humans? Has it evolved to the point where it sees us as no threat at all?
Or is this an animal (or pack of animals) simply a regular local creature that has scared onlookers into thinking it is something supernatural – something paranormal?
Whatever this famous creature is – we will not get to the truth of the matter until someone comes up with some conclusive evidence…or until we capture one…
