See the mysterious 'werewolf' killed in Montana

by Staff writer



A mysterious "wolf-like" creature was shot dead by a farmer in rural Montana (a state in the Northwestern United States) — and even wildlife experts have no clue what it is.

The beast had oddly long grey fur, oversized claws and an extra-large head — but its ears are too big and its legs are too short to be a common wolf or dog, according to Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks officials, the New York Post reported.


“We have no idea what this thing is until we get a DNA report back,” Bruce Auchly of Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks told The Great Falls Tribune.

The creature was originally thought to be a wolf, but doubts arose since the front paw appeared too long, the canine teeth too short, and ears too tall in proportion to the skull.

The strange animal was shot by the farmer when it tried to chow down on his livestock in the tiny town of Denton, officials said in a press release.

The rancher called the authorities to report that he had killed a “wolf” — but authorities soon learned it was something stranger.

The critter’s canine teeth and front paws were too short to be a wolf. And its big, floppy ears and shaggy fur were nothing like a common canine, officials said.
