Werewolves In Wisconsin

Updated on July 16, 2010

Warning, this story could give you nightmares!


Ah autumn! For many it is the best time of the year. For many others it is a time when the paranormal intrudes upon daily life. I have had many "experiences" during the fall of the year that are simply unexplainable. Why? Maybe it is the moody, sulking sky, or bare branches brushing the horizon like webs of black lace. I know I feel totally "different" when fall arrives, it is a feeling I cannot even explain, but it is a "good" feeling. A feeling of quiet anticipation of things unknown.

The moon waxes and wanes and finally rises again huge, glorious, round and orange. Farmers work in their fields deep into the night, guided by the harvest moon.

The north wind howls like a hungry beast around the eaves, and it is time to start the wood stove to fend off the coming cold of winter. Summer is over, but its bounty is evident from the rows of canned goods on basement shelves. The delicious smell of cinnamon and apple pie fills the air, and lets not forget the sizzle of pork chops frying golden in the big old iron pan, seasoned to perfection. At night, there is a nip in the air and the sound of wild geese migrating south.

All these things remind me of fall, along with pumpkins, ghosts, goblins and of course Halloween. Another harbinger of fall....stories of things that have no logical explanation. The following account is such a story. The woman who told me this story swore it was the truth, and I have no reason not to believe her. She is and was a life long friend and I have never known her to make up things or lie. She is not a drinker or a drug user. The following story was told to me in her own words one cold winter's night. What she told me I was never able to forget. It sent a chill through me that night, and although it is now many years later, I still have nightmares about the incident she suffered through. As far as I know, I am the only person she ever told, and she wishes not to have her name revealed at this time.

September 1975

Northern Wisconsin

( To the best of my knowledge I believe the following story to be a true account of an encounter with supernatural being.)

It was a month before Halloween when my husband dropped me off at the house we bought a month before. Located in northern Wisconsin, the house was isolated with no close neighbors and the nearest town many miles away. Just what we always wanted, or so we thought at the time.

The house itself was a gem, big and Victorian, it was my dream come true. It was built over a hundred years ago as a summer getaway for a wealthy lumber baron. Located on twenty beautiful acres, complete with horse barns and carriage houses which we planned to restore and convert to apartments, the house stood on a hill with a panoramic view of a river and a marshy area stretching out below. We knew plenty of people who would love to vacation at this beautiful location. We simply could not believe our good luck when we were informed of the unbelievable low price wanted for this property. My husband and I could easily afford the down payment, and would have everything completely paid for within the next 5 years. Although we did not and could not live there year round, we knew it was a good potential rental property, with a lucrative plan to start a bed and breakfast, taken care of by managers until we could live there on a permanent basis.

Even though the house was abandoned for many years, it was in excellent shape and only needed a good cleaning and some paint. The same thing could be said for the out buildings, and that fall day as I walked the grounds I once again marveled at how fortunate we were. I assumed lack of occupancy was due to the remote location of the house, it was the only thing that made any sense.

It has never bothered me to be alone, and being in that big, old, long unoccupied house by myself was not a problem for me at all. By my side was my faithful dog Shep, half wolf, half German Shepard, I felt well protected. My plan was to thoroughly clean the house, all the windows, inside and out, and then paint all the rooms in the house a soft, warm, light antique gold. I figured it would take a month to complete this and when it was done I wanted to have a Halloween party for our many friends interested in the house.

The house, large, square and three stories high had a lovely airing porch on the third floor. From that porch I had a bird's eye view of the river and marsh below, and I made up my mind that I would occupy the bedroom which opened with large French doors to that porch. Once again, I had to pinch myself. It seemed unreal that I owned this place.

I quickly cleaned and painted the bedroom, washed all the windows and huffed and puffed and moved in the newly acquired antique bedroom set which was bought to furnish the house. With the bedding in place and some beautiful antique prints on the wall, I was especially happy that night as I drifted off to sleep, with faithful Shep lying on the floor next to the bed.

The next morning started with a noisy thunder storm, and the patter of rain throughout the day. The weather did not dampen my spirits in the least. I cleaned the huge kitchen, delighting in the large old fashioned stove that worked to perfection. I had no plans to replace anything in the house and was extremely happy with the good working condition I found it all to be in. From the plumbing to electrical workings, from the roof, ( no rainy

leaks here) to the beautiful hardwood flooring through out the house, I began to wonder at the unlikelihood of it being in such good repair. It was like no one had ever lived there. There was not one sign of the normal wear and tear expected in a house of that age. Those first few days I wondered at this paradox, however, in the end, daily life and its demands turned my thoughts in other directions.

And so the days unfolded. I enjoyed the work immensely and the feeling of accomplishment that accompanied it. But it was the nights I longed for. I had moved a small daybed out onto the airing porch and laying there I would watch the moon rise and travel across the night sky. Stars twinkled so close they seemed to be at arm's length.

With Shep at my side I felt protected against the potential strangeness of the night, and enjoyed sleeping on the airing porch through the nocturnal passage of time until the chatter of chick-a-dees replaced the hooting of barn owls.

The days progressed in quiet accomplishment. Little by little the old house grew more beautiful. This was the place where I wanted to spend the rest of my life. The house seemed to come alive under my care, and I know it may sound strange, but I felt the house loved me for bringing it back to its former glory.


Vampire Or Werewolf

Werewolf Video

A night of terror begins.....


It was the beginning of October when I noticed Shep to be acting somewhat strangely. If I did not know better, I would have guessed old Shep to be afraid of something. With his strange light blue wolf eyes, and his huge, heavily furred body, I had no idea what could possibly frighten Shep. Indeed, it was the other way around. And with good cause, for Shep would protect those he loved to the utmost of his ability. An ability honed and hardened, with the blood flowing through his veins being that of the feared timber wolves of old. I had no doubt that if provoked, Shep would easily kill to protect me.

It was a warm night, Indian summer's arrival, with the hum of crickets thick in the air, and the sound of frogs croaking from the marsh. The air was velvet, thick with humidity. Thunder rumbled low in the distance, with lightening licking the rim of the earth like a sly cat.

Sleeping on the airing porch I knew Shep and I would have to move our makeshift bed from the airing porch to the bedroom inside before the rain started. I closed my eyes for a few minutes more of sleep when I heard Shep whimper in a way totally foreign for him. Perhaps the approaching storm frightened him? Perhaps... nothing to worry about, dreams beckoned. A few minutes more, and then ....I was wide awake and heard a strange, howling growl that froze my blood in fear. No dream was this, for Shep was cowering at my feet, as frightened as I.

The night grew standstill quiet, with not the sound of a cricket, the croak of a frog or the whine of an annoying insect. Only the wind and the thunder in the distance made noise. All else was holding its breath in fear and apprehension. And then, once again came that strange, eerie howl in the night. It was not a wolf, not a coyote, not a bear, not a wild dog or boar, it was something else. Something much larger, much more dangerous. Something ...deadly, for that preternatural howl and growl gave warning. The chill racing up and down my spine.....gave warning, the hush of the night....gave warning, and Shep's cowering .....gave warning that something was out there, and that something could kill without impunity.

I found I was holding my breath and suddenly I could not breathe at all. My lungs had become paralyzed with fear. A fear old and ancient and somehow known before, from another place and another time. And then, I suddenly unfroze and almost fell to the ground as my arms and legs became rag doll limp. I simply collapsed and wondered how I would reach the safety of the bedroom and house.

My heart was beating fast and hard in my eardrums. And then by some unknown miracle I was breathing again. Air, sweet and cool and wonderful rushed into my lungs and helped me think more rationally for the next few moments, and I thought, perhaps I had not really heard that strange thing, just perhaps I was dreaming. Oh yes, that had to be it. For nothing human or animal could make such an ungodly sound. It must have been dreams and the thunder, somehow mixed up to produce that strange blood chilling howl.

Clouds scudded over the moon, casting the night into true darkness for a few moments

before the moon once again beamed down. It was then that I noticed the silver ribbon of river below. A scene I never sickened of and gazed down at during moon drenched nights.

All was quiet down by the river, only marsh grass swayed to the rhythm of the wind. I gazed longer, mesmerized by the moon's glow on the river water. It was in that next second that I noticed something very strange. By the water's edge something was crouched down drinking water. The moon disappeared behind a cloud, then came back again, illuminating the river brighter than before, and the next thing I saw made me want to faint, made me feel as if all the blood drained out of me at once. Standing and looking like a very muscular, 7 foot tall, hair covered man, was some kind of strange animal. And, then to make it even more frightening, this "thing" threw it's head back (a head that looked exactly like a wolf head) to sniff the wind, and then it howled, long and loud, with a strange echo. Exactly the same sound I had heard before!

Before that howl ended, I was back in the house with the door slammed shut. My mind was slipping into shock, but I managed to run through out the house slamming and locking shut doors and windows. Pure adrenaline coursed through my veins, never in my life had I been so scared. Never in my life had I seen such a bizarre being.

I raced back up to my bedroom to find Shep under the bed, shaking in fear. Never had Shep acted in that manner. It made me even more frightened to see him in such a state, because I knew that whatever I saw he sensed and it was dangerous. The worse thing of all is that I cannot imagine what a half wolf, half German Shepard dog would feel threatened by.

That night was the worst of my life. I heard the strange howl many more times. Shep jumped up in the bed next to me, and there we stayed until dawn, each shaking in fear, with the covers over our heads, too frightened to even draw a deep breath. As soon as it was bright day light, I left, only to return one other time to retrieve belongings.

There have been reports of werewolf sightings throughout the Wisconsin countryside. I never took these stories seriously. I figured these sightings had to be the product of an overactive imagination and too much beer. However, after this chilling experience, I began to think different.

That following winter we sold the property. We were offered a huge amount of money for the house and grounds, and so we took it. I never told anyone about my werewolf sighting. I did not want people to think I was crazy, but it was the sole reason I was willing to sell that beautiful house. There was no way I could find peace and safety there after what I saw and heard, and I figured that was the reason the house stood empty so much, because of what lurked down by the river and marsh.

Today no one lives in that beautiful house, which is confirmation to me that what I saw and heard that night was real. When we returned to get our belongings out of the house, poor old Shep shook with fear and refused to get out of the car. We packed up the few things we had in the house and left well before nightfall.

Author's Note: There are things that will never be explained, and I believe this episode is one of them. Now when I hear about bizarre things, I keep an open mind, and think "Yeah, maybe that person really is telling the truth." All I know is that when you witness the paranormal you are never really the same again. Maybe that is why the Bible tells us not to get involved with the occult? My friend told me that poor old Shep has never really been the same since either. It seems he is now afraid of his own shadow, and he has to sleep on the bed between her and her husband. Imagine this huge wolf dog being that afraid!

And so the story ends here, but if you should happen to find yourself in rural Wisconsin on a lonely country road with a full moon glowing through an autumn night, beware, you just never know what you might come across!

      I found your hub surfing and I would just like to add I

      live in the UK and we have our werewolves stories just that most are kept under wraps. However, if you go to they have a werewolves file in there is a true story from a lady living in Wisconsin. Who wrote that many years ago she was travelling back home in rural Wisconsin after her night shift at work finished. It was a full moon, early hours of the morning so she was completely alone on the road. During her journey as she drove home she was hunted by 3 werewolves on the road only by speedng up her car did she manage to escape from them.

      My precious dove said:

      "Yes, this is true! Sightings of werewolves around Elkhorn go back to the early part of the last century! The werewolf sightings around Elkhorn, WI were even on the History channel's program Monster Quest!"


      What kinda gives me the eebee-geebees is that I lived just 40 miles from Elkhorn in my youth. Never knew about such things and never heard about them until recently.

      Perhaps ignorance is bliss, because had I known these things, I probably would have never played near the woods and streams by myself or ventured far from my backyard.

      My thoughts and prayers are always with you. - L.R.

      The one place that I personly found most of my

      Werewolves encounters were on the Golf course. These innocent looking people hit the ball just like everyone else an then something happens. For some strange reason the ball goes into the woods. This has happened before, but some times things change, they are very, very different after that. They, these innocent people go into a wooded area an when they come out, they have changed, really changed ! You can just sense it, look in their their eyes, smell the air, it has all changed, 'just' everything has changed ! You can't put your finger on it, it's just different, what exactly, you don't know, just that it is different !

      Here is a tip, go an ask that person what they think about something, that should be your first warning. If you get a growl, that means they are starting to turn. I just hope for your sake that if is not a cloudy, dark day an that you are with some close friends.

      The last thing I have to say is, check out the hair on you golfing buddies. If it seems longer then when you started, get out of there ! You can always go to a minature golf course. They have plenty of lights there an usually a security officer of some kind.

      So good luck in your golfing game an remember, a good putt can keep the werewolves at bay. Or at least that is what I have heard.

      Hi magnoliazz. You mentioned crossing dimensions, I was reading a couple of your other stories ( which were fascinating) and it sounds as though you do just that on occasion! Pretty amazing stuff!

      And yes, I'm totally with you on the autumn moon thing, It has such a powerful presence. There's really nothing like it.

      Love it!

      I love autumn too! There is just something about it, I always feel as if I could just walk into another dimension or something.

      I'm waiting for autumn too, and of course the full moon! You never know what might happen under an autumn moon!

      What an intriguing and very well written story! I am no writer, (I like to play in the visual realm) but I really enjoyed the way you painted a picture with your words and brought the story to life. I also very much enjoyed your intro about autumn, you nailed the essence of fall in my view. "Bare branches brushing the horizon like webs of black lace" what a unique way of seeing things. Wonderful!

      I can't wait for autumn!

      hey wolf ! thumbs up for you =)..seriously.. i think most people should get over the idea that wolf/wereanimals = evil (no offence to any ppl here of course =))..

      Well, ask yourselves ,ppl, u (or some ppl else) have SIGHTED werewolf.. but was there any harm done to u guys? as in claw prints, damage to properties fact if u don't harm them , they wouldn't even bother u..

      Lastly, occult doesn't neccassary means a connection to the 'evil' side.. but that also depends on your own defination of what is included under that term..

      Thank you so much Blake, you should write a book, I am serious!

      I am not at all taken aback about slaves, rape and prostitution. It is no secret that Roman armies would raid Germanic villages and take the women and children for slaves, but I think those people would have stayed in Italy, and probably are now considered Italian. You will see blond, tall Italians in the northern part of that country.

      A long time ago I read a story in The Farmers Almanac and it said by the time we get to 5th cousins, everyone is related to everyone else. I kind of believe that.

      And DNA proves we are all related to each other through maternal lines. Amazing! One day I think our blood will tell the story of who we really are. Maybe we became

      human after something was changed within our genes. Of course we think it was God who made us human, but then again, you just never know. I believe one day we will know for sure.

      Thanks again for your comments Blake4d, you add a lot to this hub!

      If modern archeology is correct most of the Red peoples migrated across an arctic landbridge that is now melted away from the ice age somewhere around 15000 to 10000 BC or earlier. That is why the Euroasian continents had never seen or met Native Americans and we assumed they were Indians from Hindu india, but Columbus was wrong about that detail.

      Anyway, offtrack. If your family has the Asian Nordic bloodline (Eric the Red a famous Viking had it, most red hair in Scandinavians and Germans comes from the Asia minor internixing of bloodlines centuries before there was a Europe on the map). That is the surest sign of that bloodline connection, another is were your ancestors noble, common, slave class, or nomadic (gypsy) most noble born, and common tongue speaking Nordics would have followed rules of segregation about mixing races at least up until the fall of the Roman empire. But if your family tree is of lower birth you almost assuredly were breeding stock, used for prostitution and or conquered and raped during war. Sorry to sound so cold about that subject but it is the facts when it comes to bloodline history in all cultures.

      The poorer your family lineage the more you had nothing but your bodies to use for barter to survive.

      Anyway your question is a bit beyond the scope of a comment block. That may give you some food for thought, I am so pleased you like my work. It has been many years devotion to the pursuit of knowledge, and by 41 years I guess I am getting somewhere.

      Blessed Be

      You really know a lot of things about ancient stuff!

      I don't think I am related to any Native Americans recently...however....most Scandinavians/Germans have Asian genes. My father got a form of Hodgkins disease that only Asians are supposed to get, and the way we thought we got those genes was when the Huns invaded eastern Europe, where our family name is also a village name. Would those Asian invaders be related to the Native American clans? I don't know, but I would think they could be?

      Thank you so much for your comments. You are a very intelligent guy, and I was interested in your hubs right away. I'm going back to read some more of your hubs! I love it that I learned about something I never even had a clue about.

      Oh, I agree with you 100% about the way the white man raped the land and animals. They just have to kill everything, like the buffalo, for the fun of it! Idiots! I feel very ashamed.

      I had no idea you were such an affcionado in the subject of Lycanthorpy, the American histories not the watered down European brand. No offense, but the Europeans hunted down every last one of the prehistoric Dire Wolves mostly due to the story of Red Riding Hood. They also did the same to most of their indigenous bears, antelope, horses, and who knows how many birds besides the Dodo and the Scandinavian condors. The European lack of empathy for their natural culture is one of the worst rapes of the natural world. They invented the term extinction of species, just in time for Darwin to be able to coin it. None the less the Were-ling culture, is alive historically since before the Vikings or the Colonies came to the Americas.

      Perhaps that is why you are so closely connected with the ET and alien energies. I don't know if you are bloodline to any of the original 500 Native Nations, most of us are American Natives with some Red blood ties. Depending, I wonder if your actual ties to the star nations is through the skin walker lineage, or the older Azteca Serpent and Jaguar clans. If you already know what i am refering to forgive me. Most people of Germanic decent know they are tied to the Were-ling clans, that is what the stories of Odin, Loki and the wolf at the age or Regnerok are in the Norse Mythology, Odin even has two wolves as companions, and two ravens (Ravens, wolves, rats, and bears are the most commonly associated animal totems for the skin walkers...always aminals that are both scavengers and predatory - same in egypt all their animals are scavengers not birds of prey or hunters,...jackyl, hawks, even cats are not true predators the male lion does not hunting he sires a pride of females to do it all for him. You don't see any egyptians dressed like cheetaahs).

      All tribal societies have skin walker clans. The chief clans are always either predator animals or plant eaters, Native americans have what Eagle and Deer and Otter and Turtle clan. They also have the Raven/Snake clan (astrologically Scorpio) the Bear stands like a man, the Coyote is a tickster, and the Butterfly clan the insects.

      It is kinda complex. But I basically wondered if you had ever considered your ties to the aliens is your bloodline ties to the shape shifter / skin walker lineage...

      If so that is quite potent magic you bring to the table.

      Merlin, Beowulf, Genghis Kahn, Shaka Zulu, even modern folk like Edgar Cayce and David Copperfield are said to be of this hybrid clan that is both of the earth and not.

      The Big Bad Wolf has quite a history.

      If one would be so inclined.

      Thank you for the nice comments!SilverGenes, when my friend told me this story, I had trouble sleeping for weeks afterward, it was the haunted look in her eyes that scared me the most.

      Saddlerider1- I plan on reading some more of your hubs, you should write a hub about your ghostly encounter. Many people are interested in the supernatural.

      I grew up in a haunted farmhouse, of course, I was never told that until I was an adult! However, when I was 5 years old, my mother sent me upstairs for a nap. It was in the middle of a bright spring day, so I was not at all sleepy.

      I was laying on the bed, and looked down the hallway that lead to the downstairs.

      I saw the full figure of a woman, dress in white, float down the hallway towards me!!! She was up high near the ceiling. I will never forget that day, and when other people like you tell me what they saw, I believe them! i saw numerous other things in that farmhouse too, but I won't go into it now, I might save it for another hub.

      Anyhow, yes, there are things that we cannot explain. Personally, I think the werewolves are something like the Anubis, a supernatural being called forth from the demonic world to perhaps guard the land. The Native Americans knew how to summon spirits and still do.

      Your ghost story made a chill run down my back! You just wonder WHY?

      I have never seen or believed in Werewolves and have been amused by what I have seen at the movies, however this story and all the comments that are being shared is giving me second thoughts. Do I believe in the Paranormal and spirit world? most definitely as I had my own personal experience while driving very early morning in my 18 wheeler into a town somewhere in Kentucky. I pulled up to a stop sign and to my passenger side looking through my west coast mirror I saw a face looking back at me.It was a woman dressed in a long white dress, she had long blonde hair and very red lips. She was standing at the back of my 53ft trailer looking at me. I was startled to say the least, I got out my drivers side and walked to the back of the trailer and saw her gliding towards the cemetery that I had not noticed until then. I was actually witness to a ghost/spirit, she disappeared into the darkness. I ran back to my rig and couldn't stop shaking for a few minutes, then and there I became a believer. So can I believe in werewolves, why not, there are forces out there we no nothing about until we experience it first hand. Thanks for the share, I was frozen still reading this account, and to think I have driven northern wi,mich and minn and dakotas every hour of the day and have never run across one of those creatures of the night.

      Hello Again Dreamreachout!

      I will take your advice and take a virtual tour of Tarapth and Jharkhand. They have werewolf like creatures in these areas too?

      Actually, I think it is some kind of a supernatural demon that is seen from time to time. The supernatural is real, and so are these creatures.

      I believe that if you are right with God, they cannot harm you.

      I hope I don't have nightmares!

      Your hubs amazes me!! If you ever visit India, do spend an week in the state of Jharkhand, in the wild countryside .. You will publish many more hubs like this after that!! I know it because i have a factory there where there is nothing within 1km and where people dont trundle after 7pm in the evening!! You should also visit Tarapith in West Bengal to get a first hand feeling of being eerie!! Check out Tarapith on internet an you would get an idea!! Kudos for these hubs!!

      Hello Wolf...Please, if you know something about these creatures, fill us in about them.

      We know very little, it would be great to find out more about these beings. Perhaps they are getting a bad rap they do not deserve.

      I am looking forward to hearing from you, please, don't be shy! I just have this strange feeling that you are a very handsome werewolf kind of guy with real interesting powers!

      Ok.. I will be waiting for the next full moon, please...don't disappoint me Wolf!

      Stewart Swerdlow has written about how werewolves were made in Atlantis via genetic engineering to be guards because of their ruggedness, ferocity etc

      Fun article, I've seen a few strange things in the woods up here too. I think you are very, very lucky, to have seen this creature. I strongly believe in the existence of these so called "unknowns". I used to have a half German Shepherd, half wolf dog named Frauline, inherited her from a girlfriend, easily the best dog I've ever owned.

      Hello Again Green Eyes H1982~~

      A really good book to read is "The Demonologist" by Ed and Lorraine Warren. It explains all about demons and how they operate.

      Demons have no right to bother you...UNLESS you open a doorway! People open doorways all the time, and don't even know it. ANYTHING to do with the occult is opening a doorway, and then you need a priest to come in and close it again, and sometimes that might not even do it! Demons can kill people. Stay away from any kind of witchcraft, tarot cards, ouija boards, mediums, astrology, meditation, yoga there are a bunch of things that can get you into trouble, explained in that book. In fact, priests use this book to educate themselves about demons and how they operate. My boyfriend ended up DEAD, and I know now that it had something to do with his being involved in the occult!

      A shiver just went down my spine. I watched this program called "Psychic Kids", and these people have no idea at all the danger they are getting themselves into. If mychild told me they were talking to dead people, I would not consider that a gift at all. I would get a priest in to bless the home and get this stuff to stay away. HOW do you know WHO you are talking to when you contact the dead? Nine times out of ten it is going to be demonic, because after all satan ( I never put a cap on this word) is the father of all lies. And, he hates all humans and wants us DEAD!

      I just read my Bible, and take the advice in it. God warns us over and over again about this stuff. As long as you have God and Jesus in your life, you are protected. Thank God I was a believer when this werewolf thing happened to me. Otherwise, I might have ended up dead too. Green Eyes, it is obvious the Lord was also looking out for you, you were protected. Who knows, those cops may have been ANGELS!! Did you ever see those cops again? And, don't you think it was kind of odd that they came and rescued you at that moment? And, if this guy was a werewolf, and I believe that he was, is'nt kind of strange that mere mortals could have controlled him so easily? I believe that only other supernatural beings would have that kind of power. I bet those were your guardian angels!

      Thank you for posting your stories on here, the more people we can reach and warn about this the better. I think my next hub should be about the dangers of the occult.

      Yes, I believe you! I had a personal werewolf story myself "True Wisconsin Werewolf Story" , which I wrote a hub about.

      I too know that kind of fear that is so deep and terrifying that it is almost unreal, but it is really happening and it is happening to YOU!

      I believe that the werewolves are supernatural demonic spirits that were conjured up by the Native Americans to protect their land. Many times there are werewolf sighting by old Indian mounds...

      And...just think about it, during a full moon, it would be really easy for one Indian tribe to attack another! Maybe they conjured up these entities to protect them from attacks during the full moon. I wish I knew more about Native Americans and what they did with their magical rituals

      There are some other good werewolf accounts on hub pages, first hand accounts. It might help you to know this has happened to others. You know...millions of people just disappear every year, never to be seen again, I just wonder what really happens to these people? In this day and age,how can people just disappear?

      There are numerous reports of werewolves in Michigan! If I were you, I would take off those sunglasses so that you can see better in the dark. You just never know what lurks...out there, waiting to get you!!

      Werewolves in Wisconsin? Don't let them get on the S.S. Badger and cross Lake Michigan. We've got enough problems here in Michigan.

      Franki 79, If I had not had my own paranormal experiences, I would not believe this story either!

      I think there are times we humans slip into other dimension, and thats when we see and hear strange things we cannot explain.

      When I was five years old I saw a full body apparition float down the hallway of the old farm house where I was raised. It was in the middle of a bright sunny spring day, go figure!

      Oh yes, I agree, when it comes to the paranormal, you just never know. Of course there are a lot of people out there who tell tall tales, however, with modern ghost hunting, we are now getting scientific data that tells us the supernatural really does exist.

      Good story, real or made up, either way. I am not saying that I don't believe your friend, I tend to keep an open mind about anything supernatural.

      Good hub

      Watched the History Channel's Monster Quest. These are probably not a man who has changed into a wolf. They are probably a species, like the Egyptian Anubite.

      Thanks for your story Quin, it sounds like that werewolf is attracted to you somehow. Did you see it during the day or at night?

      yeah um, i live in Minnesota right now and you know minnesota is right between these werewolf things. Point being north and south Dakota have skinwalkers (don't know what they are?thats your home work tonight)and wisconsin has werewolves. i have two sightings so far. number one i was sleeping on my couch in a cabin my friends and i rented for our snowmobile trip on the border of WI and MN, out the window was a huge creature with yellow eyes next morning i saw the prints in the snow. number two we were riding down a trail when i stoped to pee. and there it was on a tree looking at me. now i wasn't shocked the second time i look back at it an laugh, saying the werewolfs a perv. now to be more specifi on what it looked like it was, to sum it all up a giant wolf with humanoid hands and legs with big shoulders. well thats my story

      Yes, this is true! Sightings of werewolves around Elkhorn go back to the early part of the last century! The werewolf sightings around Elkhorn, WI were even on the History channel's program Monster Quest!

      If I were you, I would avoid night travel during the full moon. I am not kidding about this!

      i live in elkhorn wisconsin and heard that thre were recent werewolf sightings..... is that true.....if so can you tell me more info...?

      I have never been to the house myself. I think it was near Winter, Wisconsin....if I remember right.

      I know it was located by a river too....but I don't know which one, or even if that river was more of a creek. I did embellish the story a bit to set a mood and make it a little more scary.

      The dog Shep...was never the same again either. He slept on the bed next to my friend and her husband, afraid of his own shadow....which I thought was pretty strange for a half wolf, half dog. That's what scared me the most about this story, that Shep picked up on something and was scared beyond belief.

      I think Shep lived to a ripe old age of 15 or 16 years old and passed away in the late 80s. After that, my friend got another half dog, half wolf and called it Shep. She now has one of Shep's puppies.

      I thought that maybe it was the presense of the half wolf, half dog that created this paranormal event? ( An interesting side note about elemental spirits...I had a pet rabbit that was a house rabbit. The sweetest little creature you could ever imagine. He had full run of half the house and would often sleep with us. One early morning I woke up to find my little bunny sitting on my chest, something he did to get me to wake up. At the same time, I saw what looked like the ghost of a giant rabbit sitting at the foot of the bed! It was bizzare! It was not at all scary, but just strange. I researched this and found out that what I saw was an elemental spirit. Is this what my friend encountered too?) As far as I know, nothing like that ever happened to my friend again. I do not think it was her imagination. We thought of every possible angle, even thinking that perhaps she was high on paint fumes, or Pine Sol fumes, but in the end, not one of those theories held up.

      There was simply no explanation for what happened to her. I wonder who is living at that house now? Maybe you can find the place!

      And, thank you for your kind comment concerning my writing skills. I have been thinking about submitting some of my stories to magazines, but I fet unsure of myself. After your nice comment, I might give it a try now.

      I live in Northern Wisconsin.  Wolves were recently delisted up here.  I know many people that have been here all their lives, but scoff at stories of the Dogman and Bigfoot.  I have the usual run-ins with bears and raccoons at my house but nothing else.  Your story is intriguing, but, one thing that jumped out at me, was your eloquent writing style.  You are good.   I know it was 1975 when this happened, but where was that house located?  If you don't want to give specifics, give a general location, i.e. between Glidden and Hayward, or such lik ethat.  Thanks.

      Lots of strange things going on in Wisconsin, even an underground alien base near Fond du Lac.

      Thank you so much for your comment! My grandfather used to tell me about strange things he saw in the north woods of Wisconsin during deer hunting and while working in a lumber camp. He was a no nonsense kind of guy, a hardworking German from the old country, a non drinker.

      I remember it was not so much as what he told me(although it certainly scared me) it was the LOOK OF FEAR on his face when he told me what he and other men saw. Things so strange that they dare not make it public for fear of ridicule.

      Little by little that is begnning to change as people become more open about the supernatural and paranormal. Perhaps one day we will find out once and for all what lurks in the woods of Wisconsin. I have to admit, I try not to travel after dark, and I don't go outside very much after sunset either if I can help it. I don't need an encounter with the paranormal in my life.....I will leave that to those who are braver and who can run faster than me!
