Coyote or Wolf? Missouri Hunter Shoots 80-Pound Mystery Animal Field And Stream
We aren't sure if this is so much a cryptid mystery or rather a "who has been breeding dogs and wolves in their backyard" mystery. The unfortunate animal pictured makes us think German Shepard, not mutant coyote. Still, there is enough mystery in this case to warrant a second look once the lab tests are back in. Meanwhile, Malcom Smith gives us a comprehensive listing of Yowie sightings with a healthy dose of skepticsm in Tales of Australian Bigfoot while over in Kentucky, a local news station asks, Does Bearilla Live in the Kentucky Woods? The strange beast was last spotted in 1989 and had the body of a bear and the head and feet of a wolf. All the eyewitnesses have since died, there's only one footprint cast as evidence and no one's seen the creature in 20 years. We think this is more a case of a slow news day than anything particularly cryptid...Glasgow Boy asks a far more meaningful and sensible cryptid question: Can there be convincing Nessie footage? and goes on to answer yes, but it would be either be dubbed a clever fake or an "unknown animal". Researchers and believers are already convinced by the copious evidence gathered over the decades but it's the rest of the world that will always remain skeptical. By her very elusive nature, Nessie is most likely doomed to the shelves of cryptozoology in the "We'll Never Know" department unless she stages a live press conference or is considerate enough to die and let her body wash up on shore.
