Michigan Police Look for Horse-Killing Sasquatch or Big Cat

Posted by: Craig Woolheater on June 12th, 2015

From Mysterious Universe:

Police and wildlife officials in Sanilac County, Michigan, are warning residents to lock up their pets and livestock and keep their children indoors until they determine what kind of large creature or animal killed a 1,200 pound horse in broad daylight. In this part of Michigan known as “the Thumb,” locals fear the killer could be anything from a coyote to a cougar to a Sasquatch.

The killing occurred on Sunday, May 31st, in a rural area of Sanilac County a mere 80 miles north of Detroit. The location is called “the Thumb” because it is on the peninsula protruding into Lake Huron that looks like the thumb of a mitten when you look at a map of the lower peninsula of Michigan. Sanilac County animal control officer Jim Matson investigated the report of a horse being bitten and bleeding to near death.

The owners were in their house, heard commotion, went outside and the horse was bleeding badly from the rear hoof. No other animal was seen.

Sgt. Darrin Siemen of the Sanilac County Sheriff’s Office issued the warning to keep animals and children inside. He suggested the killer was larger than a small animal and possibly a coyote.

Local residents aren’t so sure. Social media sites recorded fears of cougars, Sasquatch and other creatures both real and rumored. There have been numerous sightings of cougars in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula and a few in the Lower Peninsula.
