Michigan Dogman

Werewolf? Weredog? Lycanthropy? One thing is certain…the Dogman is dangerous. It is thought to be responsible for several human deaths.

Witness describe the classic “werewolf” appearance…very large, 7ft tall, wolf like head with canine like sharp teeth and covered in dark/silver like short hair.

It hunts in packs, much like wolves, but it is not known if there is an alpha male. The Dogman lives in dens, either they dig or natural caves/holes. If you find one, stay clear. The dens appear large enough to fit several people in them. The Dogman is afraid of sunlight…or any light. If you encounter them, make sure you have a high lumens flashlight on you to scare them away…and give you time until sunlight. They have been shot at with conventional lead bullets and shotgun shells…none of which seem to affect it. Silver bullets? Take care if using that approach.

Wendigo

From the Native American Algonquian language, meaning “evil spirit that devours mankind”, is a shapeshifting creature in Western Canada and the North West United States. It is not known why it is dangerous to humans…but it is thought to be the protector of the natural environment. Is it a spirit or a flesh and blood creature? The Native Americans seem to believe it is a nature spirit. Once you disturb it, it will hunt you down until the end. The thought of the only recourse if given time is to make an offering to it…plant a tree or replace what you destroyed.

Its appearance varies, but it is very large…up to 10ft, has a “rock” like appearance…basically if you combine the Dogman/Neanderthal/Bigfoot and give it a greyish rock like appearance. Since it is a shapeshifter, it might also appear as a wolf/coyote, owl or combination of those.
