In May of this year I received a narrative from a reader who forwarded a 'werewolf' incident that occurred in and around Sarasota, Florida. The account included the following statement...
"I was coming home and as I got closer to the tracks, there was this huge thing lying in the road. I thought it must have been a Mastiff or Great Dane in the road, but as I pulled up to it it didn't look like a dog I'd ever seen. It was hairy, it's head and nose was twice the size of a dog - the body wasn't a dog, just dog-like, but much, much bigger. It was all over the place, there was an arm on the road! Not dog a human arm."
In today's reports, I received the description of two cryptid wolf sightings by two diferent people at two different locations in Florida. Both of the witnesses were brothers! Tell me what you think:
My oldest son and his wife were traveling from Daytona Beach on Highway 100 towards Ocala. They were driving a work van with trailer going 60 mph around 12 midnight. There were no lights on the road but their headlights illuminated a creature standing on the side of the road looking across towards the other side of the road. As they were approching it never looked into the headlights but kept staring across the road.
The description was a bi-pedal wolf-like creature that appeared to be predominately bare-skinned, though there was hair on some parts of the body. They described the face as 'evil' with visible teeth. It was very tall. My son stated that it was everybit as tall as the van he was driving. They continued on their way, praying that they would not break down.
My youngest son was driving home along the same route he did every night. This was in Polk County, Fl. It was around 1:30 am. On consecutive nights, while traveling on the same stretch of road, a wolf-like creature ran in front of his car on all fours. It was HUGE - its back was four foot from the ground and had a large, well-developed muscular chest which tapered dramatically towards abdomen & flanks. It also had a large bushy tail.
Have there been similar reports anywhere in Florida?C
I had an additional large wolf report northeast of Clearwater, FL several years ago...along with other less descriptive sightings. Are these actual wolves, large coyotes...or what? I'd like to read your thoughts. Lon
