MYSTERIOUS CREATURE Concerns Greendale, Wisconsin Resident

A Wisconsin woman lets her dogs out at night but is alarmed when the dogs refuse to go past the patio. She notices a terrible odor. The next day she finds 3 dead squirrels lined up in the woods.

I received the following account:

"Hello. I found one of your posts on the Strange Wisconsin Facebook group. This is not a personal experience of mine. However, a close friend’s mother, who lives near Greendale, Wisconsin, related this story to me.

She let her two dogs out into the backyard. Those familiar with the area know that Greendale is just a bit outside of Milwaukee. Her backyard is connected to a wooded area, so she’s used to random wildlife. Deer come by frequently, and bears have been known to wander around from time to time, not to mention the countless smaller woodland creatures. This being said, she had a fairly disconcerting situation unfold.

One night, she let her two dogs out before bed, a nightly occurrence, and she stayed with them as she often did. She regularly would sit on her patio until midnight or later, but not so anymore. As I said, she’s used to seeing occasional wildlife, as are the dogs.

This particular night, she let the dogs out, and they started to make for the yard, however, they stopped just past the patio and stared into the darkness of the trees. Unwilling to move further, she left her back door to try and coax them to hurry up and do their “business." As she approached the edge of her patio she noticed a particularly rancid odor. She said that it smelled like mothballs, rotting meat, and dead fish.

Shortly thereafter she heard a loud “grunt” and the rustling of foliage. She was very clear that the odor was no animal she had smelled before, and the grunt did not sound like that of a bear, even though one had been spotted in another area not super far from her place. Two, in fact, had been spotted. One had wandered onto the interstate and been struck by a truck. It was enough to shake her, and she didn’t spook easily.

Now, that would have been weird enough for her. However, the next day she let her dogs out and one had traveled a bit further into the foliage, before she called her back, heading in the same direction as they had been staring the night before. She called her back and she came. But it was off for her to have traveled that deep in.

The next day, during daylight, she decided to trek in a bit and see if she could find any bear signs or anything like that. She didn’t. What she did find was three squirrels, dead, lined up. Not end to end, but one then the next like lined paper, and spaced out evenly. The squirrels weren’t bloody, nor mutilated as one would expect from a predator attacking and snacking. Just dead, and laid out evenly.

I don't what animal would do this, but it didn’t sound like anything I had heard of a “normal” animal doing. Any insight into this weird happening?" W

NOTE: The first thing that comes to mind is either a Bigfoot or a very odorous human. Very weird. Lon
