It's not human-looking enough to be a werewolf, is it?

I was thinking GMO-dogbeast, but I could be wrong.

Mandos said...

Could it be the dreaded wolvog from Atwood's Oryx and Crake?

Wildlife control officers refused to go and look at it? Huh???

If there's anything conspiracy-theoretic about this article, it's that.

wooOOOooooo

THERE WOLF! There castle...

Renegade Evolution said...

heheh, yay for werewolves!

looks like a pit-bull/presa canario/something hairy like maybe chow cross.

combine the personalities of those 3 dogs and you'd have a real monster.

I'd bet someone crossbred a few, then discovered they couldn't handle it and let it go feral.

We have that problem here with people crossing their pit-bulls with coyotes.

First off, let me say animals aren't evil, not even if they're creepy to look that. Secondly if that thing took down a doby and a rotty he's one tough son-o-bitch. I'm kinda sad he got mashed and eaten.

Rootietoot said...

Ghandi Rules, you are right about animals not being evil, but the can be dangerously aggressive toward other animals. Human nature is to apply labels like "good"(think, Golden Retriever) and "evil" (anything undomesticated or sporting heavy jaws and teeny eyes), it helps us catagorize.
The fact is, nature is simply a struggle toward self preservation, everyone else be damned.
Some members of nature are more aggressive than others, and we call them evil. Think Great White Shark, or Black Adders, or human beings.
Then something weird comes along like this beast, that looks fierce and smells nasty, and we look for the most plausible reason for it's existance. It really looks rather like a wolverine, and they are nasty and stinky...

you guys are totally missing the not-so-subtext. it's NOT AN ORDINARY ANIMAL. there is something SINISTER AND STRANGE AT WORK HERE.


woooOOOOOooooo

i love it when MSNBC gets its X-Files on. no, seriously.

belledame222 said...

actually i find that idea less distressing than the notion that someone is DELIBERATELY CROSSING PIT BULLS WITH COYOTES, tbh.

first of all, how...?

second: damn, some people are messed up.

transitorrie said...

Good grief! We need to call Mulder and Scully NOW!

Lina said...

Do you know, I'm going to be dreaming about that thing tonight...

Mandos said...

I'm totally with BD on this. This can't be anything but a government conspiracy. Clearly the government is hybridizing

Kristin said...

Why is everyone hatin' on this dog?! DAMN. How would you like it if there was a shot of you in your casket and a bunch of hideous creatures sat around calling you sinister and deformed? He is beautiful and I love him and if he were my friend, I would call him Chuck. Fortunately, he's really a deity from some forgotten NEastern Native American culture and now you're all going to catch a smiting for blaspheming his ass. Enjoy! Enjoy the smite.

yeah, pitbull coyote crosses. On the land inhabited by people who also own an (illegal) cougar that occasionally savages horses on an ajoining bit of property.Unfortunately the state won't investigate because there's no probable cause, and neighbors won't report because the people with the critters are MEAN PEOPLE. How do I know? My parents live right there. Dad shoots the dogs on a regular basis, when they come on his property and go after the goats. 'course, Dad also owns a pair of Great Pyrenees who delight in helping him out.

Dogs is animals. People is animals. Personally I'm more scared by the people than the ugly mutt in that photo.

belledame222 said...

dayumn.

i guess, but, okay, how do they get the coyote and the pitbull to, you know?...

why do i keep thinking of the South Park episode "An Elephant Makes Love To A Pig?"

does Isaac Hayes come and sing "Love Gravy," to soothe the savage beasts?

but yeah: scary people. yeesh.

it's not like we don't get crazy feral animal lovers in the citay either. anyone else recall the story about the guy somewhere uptown, here in NYC? he'd been keeping a crocodile in his bathroom, but that wasn't what finally brought in the authorities; no, what really caught the neighbors' attention was the FULL-GROWN TIGER he had ensconced in there.

something about gallons and gallons of tiger piss dripping through the ceiling, i guess, eventually got someone to call 311.

that and i expect the roaring might get on one's nerves as well after a while.

(no, I Am Not Making This Up, although sadly i have misplaced the link to the original story, which has probably expired anyway)

Amber said...

That photo looks fake.

But then, what the hell do I know about what a wolvog looks like... (I'm going with Mandos, much more likely to be wolvog than werewolf)

Rootietoot said...

a dog in heat is a dog in heat, coyote, wolf or dachshund. The people get the coyotes by raiding a den with pups, then raise them to be 'tame'. A coyote is never tame. Coyotes are pretty much indigenous to the region (East Alabama) and it's very easy to find a den. Dad has several on his property. He leaves them alone to let the Great Pyrenees deal with.

Yeah. Mean people suck.

belledame222 said...

o.k., now i am imagining a cross-breed of coyote and daschund, and i think i have to lie down now.

Rootietoot said...

HAW! A dachyote! scruffy with a nasty propensity for savaging ankles, and a fondness for rolling in rotten dead things.

Alex Barreto said...

Whenever we don't understand something, we think it must be evil.

Really, it's cars that are evil.

fastlad said...

Yeah cos' SUV"s are like belong to Satan.

Winter said...

I'd like to believe it, but I think it's a hoax, or just a really weird looking dead dog.

Rootietoot said...

oh...by Alex's assessment, cheerleaders are evil. and PTA presidents. And anyone else who's perky. real estate agents. people with beetle convertibles. except that would make me evil. and I'm not. Just misunderstood.

belledame222 said...

aren't we all...

but winter! it's on MSNBC, so it must be true!

ha. now i'm off to go try to convince my scientist father that the "blind boy who gets around for echololation" is really seriously in a nooze article; and he can explain exactly why it's IMPOSSIBLE.

which, well, duh;

it's just, i believe six impossible things before breakfast every day as part of my morning workout.

and i don't even eat breakfast.

Renegade Evolution said...

in my next life, I am coming back as a werewolf...

Rootietoot said...

RenEv, do you ever have periods of time you can't account for?

belledame222 said...

ut-oh

Renegade Evolution said...

RT:

no, dammit, not even after drinking heavily...still thou, I am holding out for next life=werewolf

belledame222 said...

i have had exactly one (1) so-drunk-i-can't-remember-parts-of-the-evening experience.

i'm told that i was quite witty and charming. entire conversations i can't now and couldn't the day after remember a word of.

creepy, that.

well, call it a rite of passage or something, i guess.
