    Default Strange Wolf Like Creature Shot In Montana. Dogman?

    I first spotted this on Drudge and my jaw dropped.

    Fox news is reporting on this as well.



    They are saying strange wolf like creature. I'm gathering news on this as I'm posting this.






    Here is a snippet from USA TODAY.

    Wolfdog, direwolf or dogman? Mysterious wolf-like creature shot in Montana

    Was it a wolf, some type of hybrid, or a creature that hasn't been seen in Montana since the Ice Age?
    On May 16 a lone wolf-like animal was shot and killed on a ranch outside Denton, Mont. With long grayish fur, a large head and an extended snout, the animal shared many of the same characteristics as a wolf; but its ears were too large, it's legs and body too short, its fur uncharacteristic of that common to a wolf.
    So what was it? At this point, no one is 100 percent



    "We have no idea what this was until we get a DNA report back," said Bruce Auchly, information manager for Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks. "It was near a rancher's place, it was shot, and our game wardens went to investigate. The whole animal was sent to our lab in Bozeman. That's the last I ever heard of it."
    Social media from around the Lewistown, Mont. area was buzzing last week; with many people chiming in on what they believed the creature to be.
    "That's a grizzly cub," one commentator wrote. "Under a year and starving from the look."
    "Maybe a dire wolf," wrote another, "because I don't believe they are all gone."

    So far, the exact species is a mystery

    Grizzly cub? Dogman? Dire wolf? Or what?

    "That's a grizzly cub," one commentator wrote. "Under a year and starving from the look."

    "Maybe a dire wolf," wrote another, "because I don't believe they are all gone."
    Speculation roamed as far as identifying that animal as a crypto-canid species said to roam the forests of North America.
    "That could very well be what’s being called Dogman," one poster suggested. "They’re spotted each day and the government quells any and all reports. Several people report being strong armed into keeping quiet about their reports by men wearing black suits. These are just facts. Look into if if you don’t believe it."

    Auchly doesn't.
    "First off (dire wolf) was a song by the Grateful Dead from 1971," he said of the prehistoric species speculation. "I know; I listened to it many times. Number two, it's a prehistoric animal, like mastodons and saber toothed tigers; so it doesn't exist."

    As for the Dogman theory; there's a regular Friday night YouTube broadcast called "Dogman Encounters" for those who wish to follow up on that line of thought. It comes on right after "Bigfoot Eyewitness" radio.
    Nonetheless, there remains an element of uncertainty about the creature, even among wildlife biologists.

    "Several things grabbed my attention when I saw the pictures," said Ty Smucker, wolf management specialist for Montana FWP. "The ears are too big. The legs look a little short. The feet look a little small, and the coat looks weird. There's just something off about it."
    Possible wolf/dog hybrid



    Smucker's own speculation runs toward some type of wolf/dog hybrid. He noted several occasions within the last few years in which canid predators, neither all wolf nor all dog were causing problems with ranchers east of the Continental Divide.
    "We've had a few instances of wolf/dog hybrids out there," Smucker said. "One was out somewhere in eastern central Montana killing sheep like crazy. Finally, we caught it and it turned out to be a hybrid."

    Why was it shot?
    Was it worrying something or taken out for being there?
    Very strange and interesting - one to follow for sure for updates.
    Great if it were a "Dire Wolf" !
    However canines seem short

    It's definitely not a starved bear cub, as one comment suggested. Comparing its paw to that of a wolf killed on a farm in Idaho in 2014, the two are very much alike, even in size. It does appear to be some of variety of wolf (imo).

    After scanning the article and viewing pictures I don't see why this is such a mystery. I was born and raised in the North and I have seen wolves alive and dead. They come in many different coat colours and sizes. The only thing a little strange is his jaw. Am I missing something?

    I've seen a wolf (a 'pet' one, so to speak! ) as big as a small pony — owned by Dave Corso, a close friend of Duncan O'Finioan, who Kerry Cassidy and I interviewed at his home in Pahrump, Nevada. It was the largest of over a dozen that he kept. It really was huge.

    I have no photos, but from memory it was easily as large as the animal in the photos here, if not even bigger.

    More pictures would be good
    I've heard accounts saying its head was like a hyena which this reminds me of. Big tall ears. Head size isn't very large though.

    These I heard on dogman encounters radio on YouTube. As well as more upright walking types with longer arms and claw like hands.
