The Beast of Bray Road Legend

The Beast of Bray Road Legend

In this article we will be taking a closer look at the Beast of Bray Road legend – a cryptid that numerous witnesses have claimed to have encountered in Racine, Walworth and Jefferson counties in Wisconsin.

These encounters seem to go as far back as the 1930’s but for some reason…they stopped in the early 90’s…

The Beast of Bray Road Werewolf

The first reported incidents with the creature happened on Bray Road near Elkhorn, Wisconsin – it is these initial sightings that lent the cryptid its now famous name.

The cryptid is often referred to as a ‘Manwolf’ or a ‘Werewolf’, but what it really is exactly, is still unclear. Many cryptozoology experts have gone as far as suggesting it is a direct cousin of the Bigfoot family.

Unfortunately no specimens have ever been found relating to witness reports and incidents.

Many Skeptics actually believe the beast is real – but also believe that people’s imagination has been running away with itself. They claim that the creature is nothing more than rogue bear or solitary wolf.

The Beast’s Appearance

Witness reports indicate that the creature stands at least 6 feet tall and has a fur coat (a strange gray and brown mix of color). It has pointed ears and it’s face resembles that of a wolf.

It’s eyes have a bright yellow tinge to them and they are said to shine in the dark. Each hand bares three long and rather threatening claws.

Many incidents describe the beast as standing on it’s haunches with the body of a extremely fit and healthy man. It has also been spotted running about on all fours like a dog.

The beast has never attacked anyone but it has frequently been spotted eating wild prey it has caught – sitting on the ground holding the dead carcass, hands pointing upwards as it consumes it’s kill.

Certain incidents have involved the beast feeling threatened in some sort of way, and reacting accordingly – it has jumped on passing vehicles on occasion, when it’s feast has been disturbed.

It’s exact diet is not yet known, but cryptozoology experts believe it hunts wildlife and even feeds off roadkill.

The Beast of Bray Road Sightings

As I mentioned earlier on in the article – the beast of bray road sightings actually stretch as far back as the 1930’s, but most of the reported incidents are concentrated from 1989 through to 1992.

Most of these sightings have been sudden, people generally zoom past the beast in their car as it feeds on the side of the road. A handful of reported experiences suggest that the witnesses have disturbed the beast as it was hunting or scavenging.

Reported sightings seem to have tapered off since the early 90’s but locals still insist that the best is frequently stumbled upon in wooded areas.

So what is the truth behind the Beast of Bray Road legend?

Is it a cryptid or is it simply a regular wild animal that has little to no fear of passing humans?

Are people’s mind’s going into overdrive – are they simply seeing what they want to see?

Until a legitimate specimen is found, we will never know the answer.
