Muscular forelegs. Fingers with claws. Hind legs oddly shaped and longer than a dog's. Tail like a husky or German shepherd dog.

Distribution: East of Elkhorn, Wisconsin.

Significant sightings: In the fall of 1989, Lori-anne Endrizzi saw a wolflike creature kneeling by the side of Bray Road. It seemed to be eating something.

Farmer Scott Bray encountered a "strange-looking dog" that left tracks in his cow pasture in September or October 1989.

On October 31, 1991, Doristine Gipson was attacked by a large animal as she was stopped along the road. The creature hit the car trunk as she drove away.

Along Bray Road on the night of August 13, 1999, a woman and her family saw what at first looked like a deer, but it was about 5 feet tall and had glowing, red eyes. It approached the car steadily to within 50 feet before they drove away.

Possible explanations:

(2) Black bears ( Ursus americanus) are not normally found in the area.

(3) Coyotes (Canis latrans) are too small.

(4) The Gray wolf (Canis lupus) is not as robustly built, never walks upright, and is not known in the area.

(5) A hybrid dog x wolf. These hybrids have become fashionable in the United States, where some estimates place the number at 600,000. Second-generation hybrids tend to be strongly territorial, prone to roaming, and shy of people. Wolf x German shepherd hybrids tend to be less stable than wolf x mala-mute or husky crosses.

(6) A paranormal ENTITY.

(7) Escaped baboon of some type. Sources: Scarlett Sankey, "The Bray Road
