Missouri Man Beast?

Posted by: KryptoKelly on February 14th, 2013

Show me the werewolf!

The lonely cemetery near the small town of Brunswick, Missouri, rises like ancient ruins on a hill at the end of a dusty gravel road. A dark canopy of trees covers the half-mile long stretch of rocks and dirt, hiding the path from the sky. Ryan Straub, founder of the Missouri-based ghosthunting group Tir Firnath, has often visited the cemetery and experienced strange things. However, nothing has disturbed him there as much as what he and his friend Jeremy Taylor saw standing on that gravel road in the dark on Halloween 2000.

“As we were leaving, we were in the middle of the hills and we saw a very large dog in the road,” Straub said. The grayish-brown beast was at least 250 pounds and feeding off road kill. It didn’t move as the truck headlights flooded over it and the vehicle creaked to a stop. As the stench of wet dog crept into the truck, the men realized they had encountered something they shouldn’t have seen.

The beast stood on its hind legs, rising to more than six-feet-tall, and looked at them with yellow-orange eyes. After a few uncomfortable minutes, the creature turned and calmly walked into the trees. “I wouldn’t call it a dog,” Taylor said. “That’s what we thought it was at first. However, it standing up on its two back legs and walking off the road casually ended the belief that it was a dog for me.”

The thing that struck the two as they watched something they knew couldn’t be happening, was that the creature didn’t move like an animal. It moved like a man. “That bothered me,” Straub said. “The only thing I could think of was it was the mythical beast the werewolf.”

Werewolves in various forms exist in many cultures across the world. From the Medieval European werewolf that dominates popular culture, to American Indian skinwalkers, the image of a man changing into a beast has terrified people for centuries. But shapeshifting beasts that stalk the night are nothing but legend, right?

Some people would say that’s wrong. Dead wrong.

    That will depend on what one is smoking.

  4. Goodfoot responds:

    It’s a super-cool Skinwalker/Windstalker, kinda reminiscent of the WW in AN AMERICAN WEREWOLF IN LONDON, huh?

    Any gringo who doubts Skinwalkers needs to be out in AZ/NM, talking to some Indians. They’ll BS on occasion, in a good-humored sorta way, but when they talk about THAT – they’re DEAD serious.

    I believe these things are out there, but there are a few things that dont jive.
    One is that they say this place was out on a gravel road, and yet the animal was feeding off roadkill. Although this could happen, we have to assume that it was a large animal, most likely a deer that was killed. If it was a smaller animal, the wolf could have just picked it up and ate it off the road. And as a hunter who is out alot on gravel roads early in the morning while its still dark, you very very rarely see a dead deer killed on a gravel road. The conditions of a gravel road typically prohibit enough speed for a deadly collision to occur on a larger animal. It happens, but rarely. Yet this animal was eating on a dead carcass on a small gravel road that dead ended at a graveyard. And i highly doubt their is alot of traffic speeding down such a gravel road. So thats one strike in my book.

    Number two is him stating that he saw a 250 pound dog like animal in Missouri? If that indeed was the case, the shock of that would be too much alone. Yet this man states that what really bothered him was that it moved like a man when it walked off on two legs. Really? Thats what disturbed you? Not the world record breaking dog weight, or the fact that it was standing up walking on 2 legs, but instead b/c it moved like a man?

    I think this is BS. I think these animals are out there, whatever they are, but i dont buy this story at all.
