Werewolves in Maine? Witness Interview

I hadn’t seen the show before, but my sister told me about this episode and I had to download it. I thought it was pretty entertaining. Anyway, I went through the trouble of downloading it (took over a day to do) because my husband described something sort of similar and we live about 60mi northeast of Palmyra.

I had been playing with the dogs outside around dusk (the sun was below the tree line, but there was still plenty of light to see by) and went in to use the bathroom. My husband had been fiddling with a guitar, but wandered into the bathroom looking like he wanted to say something. He was pale and sweaty, kind of staring into space, so I was naturally concerned. He wouldn’t tell me what was wrong at first, but I finally got out of him that he had seen a huge, black wolf walk by the window. I told him it must have been a bear, knowing that there aren’t supposed to be wolves around here, and that the window was too high for any canine on four legs to walk in front of. He said no, but whatever it was I didn’t want the dogs messing with it, so I ran back outside. They were still wrestling in the side yard, oblivious, so it was easy to get them back in and then I had a look around. I didn’t see any animal, or sign, but noted that the window was even higher than I thought.

When I went back in, my husband described what he had seen as a black, bipedal wolf. He said the snout and ears were wolf-like, but that it had yellow eyes that reminded him more of a cat. I measured the window and the bottom of it is 6ft off the ground, so for any thing’s head and torso to pass by it from where he was standing the animal would have to be more like 7 feet tall. One of our dogs is tall enough if he stood up on his hind legs, but we’ve never seen him do that on his own and he’s blue-gray, with floppy ears, and brown eyes. There aren’t any huge, black, circus dogs on my road that I know of.

My husband is very skeptical of anything not accepted by the scientific community, but still insists that it wasn’t a black bear he saw. He concluded that he must have hallucinated the whole thing.

Two weeks later, around the same time of day, my husband saw the same animal. This time he was close to the window and the animal was further away, running out through a weird stand of red pine that has a sparse understory. He still doesn’t believe it was real, even after seeing it a second time.

And then, (not sure if this is related) about a week after that I was gardening and my husband comes out back calling for me, really shook up again. He said he was sitting in his computer chair and thought I was standing over his shoulder. He said when he looked up it was a black form, (like a shadow person?), he jumped and it was gone, but it scared the crap out of him. He wanted me to come inside and keep an eye on him because he was afraid it meant he was having a stroke or something.

We haven’t seen anything since then and he had never seen anything before that first incident. Anyway, I wanted to share. I hope it’s a werewolf and not my husband losing it 🙂

    Was an interesting if exaggerated episode.

  3. zigoapex responds:

    The world record dog is 7″4″ tall on hind legs, i doubt their dog could be that tall, didn’t they check for prints? if their dogs were outside there is no doubt they would have smelled an animal that big. Sounds like he is hallucinating or the story is BS.

  4. cryptokellie responds:

    Why would we worry with wayward wannabe werewolves? While whereby well-meaning, without worthwhile wordage, we won’t warmly welcome what’s wholly wide-eyed whimsy.

  5. scaryeyes responds:

    It is rather odd that his own dogs were outside but didn’t apparently respond to the presence of a strange bipedal wolf-man.

  6. AreWeThereYeti responds:

    @ cryptokellie: Wha…? 😉

  7. volmar responds:

    A bipedal wolf? A black bear. Just a black bear.

  8. cryptokellie responds:

    Just having a little fun with W words, like werewolf…slow night.

  9. chefK responds:

    For what it’s worth, it does jive with some reports of “loup garou” (werewolf) from various parts of Maine. I believe its a part of French-Canadian folklore, and is not talked about as much as Nape/Bigfoot type reports up here. But the reports do exist…

  10. DWA responds:


    Well, if someone can see a cow and think it’s a sasquatch, why can’t someone see a sasquatch and think it’s a werewolf?

    Or, he was just having a stroke or something.

    Wow, such a fully believable story.. I do a lot of research because I find this phenomena so fascinating.. I myself would never want to experience this kind of thing however. I don’t think I could get over it.

    In my research I have heard of wolf like creatures appearing after lights. I think those lights you saw are KEY. They ARE interdimensional beings. Either spirits or just from another dimension but not dead.. sounds strange but so is the entire experience. Never are these beings just living about in the woods.. There is no way. they don’t come often enough. They are interdimensional for sure. Did you see the Joe Rogan episode when he went to Skinwalker Ranch? Ryan experienced right in front of him a glowing orb that then turned to a black mist and then formed into a wolf. It’s on native american land. Has anyone thought to research the past history to find out if it was indian territory that has been cursed.. most of Maine is.

    Just realized the story above changed after I wrote.. My guess goes for you too, as this comment above was for the original werewolf story.. as for yours.. since your husband saw a dark shadow this tells me it is indian spirits. Check out the land history. Indians always wanted to be wolves so what better way to appear as really. Regardless though, fact is these creatures aren’t living out in the woods..they appear and disappear interdimensionally. So there is no real explanation except to just accept this as other worldly.
