'WEREWOLF' Observed Along Roadway In Calvert County, Maryland

A Maryland teen recalls seeing a tall, werewolf-like cryptid while riding in his parent's car in Calvert County, Maryland. What did the eyewitness observe?

I received the following account:

"This is a rather short encounter because I was riding in a car and basically saw it and rode past it. I have been past the site hundreds of times since then, but have never gotten out and walked around the area. Maybe I should. This encounter changed my life. When I read the encounters by others, I never discount them. Why? Because I know what I saw and who am I to question someone else's experience? Sure, there are a lot of made up stories and creepy pasta out here! But I strive to find credible sounding accounts.

It was an evening in July 1992 and my family and I were coming back from Chesapeake Beach, Maryland after dinner with my brother, mom and dad. I was 16 years old and in the back-right passenger seat chilling with my brother. Riding along, I'm just looking out the window and there is a little road that merges onto the main road on the left, so as we merge we pick up a little speed. We are going maybe 25-30 mph and you have to cross this little bridge and it's really bumpy, so we slowed even more to maybe 20 mph. Once we did that I look up ahead and about 75 yards ahead I see something standing on the wood edge off to the right a little, but it was exactly at the edge of the woods. It had both arms on a tree just standing there, meaning, it's right arm was on a tree about shoulder height and it's left arm was on a tree at about shoulder height. So it's arms were basically spread out with it's hands on the trees.

It was about 7 feet tall (maybe even taller) had a wolf-like face, only larger like a dire wolf from Game of Thrones. It had really broad shoulders, very muscular arms, a barrel chest and it narrowed the rest of the way down the abdominal area. It was dark brown and the hair was medium length. I didn't get a great look at the legs because it locked eyes with me. It knew I saw it and it saw me. I saw it a good distance up ahead and was like "what the hell is that standing on the wood edge?" Soon as I said that to myself I locked eyes with it. I saw it for a good 10-15 seconds because of how far up ahead I first noticed it moving around and how slow we were traveling. It's eyes followed mine the entire time. It took my breath when I first realized what I was looking at and my first thought was, "God, that thing is ugly!" It had very pointy features and it didn't look like a Bigfoot, but an actual werewolf. A lot of people call it a Dogman, but I'm more inclined to say this was an actual Wolfman. I said out loud to my family, "did you guys see that thing?" Obviously they were like, "see what?". Another thing, this was in southern Maryland where there are no bears or other large animals. But I asked my family over and over if they saw it and they started getting annoyed with me. I told people over the years, but I was only ridiculed and teased about it, so I just stopped.

So that was my encounter. This occurred in Calvert County, MD. My family still doesn't believe me either and most other people think I'm crazy or lying, so I very rarely tell anyone about it. But it was real, it was there. I just want to know the "W's" of the creature. Where, what, why, etc." S

There is a region within the state of Pennsylvania where a vast majority of cryptid canine sightings have historically occurred. The Lycan Loop starts in northwest Pennsylvania near the Allegheny State Forest, extends southeast through the state, and ends near the southern reaches of the Susquehanna River near the Mason-Dixon Line. There have been sporadic reports throughout the state, but the Lycan Loop has proven to be a legitimate ‘hot spot.’ The team and I have investigated these cases, some of which were originally reported and investigated by Butch Witkowski.

So, relax and listen to these sightings and encounters. Then put yourself in the shoes of these witnesses and imagine how you would react to a similar situation. If you have questions, feel free to post them in the live chat. I will do my best to answer each.
