I do have a belief/theory that most of these alleged cryptids/urban legends/creepypasta beings are probably derived from something that has at least a grain of truth somewhere in it way back when. Not sure if this applies to the Rake, but it would be kind of cool to have that possibility.

It's very possible they're inspired and take a lot of elements from existing, older legends of similar nature. That, however, does not make them true.

Still, creepypastas, true or not, are still pretty interesting to read in my opinion.

Thanks for sharing. I've included it in the Two Legged Dogman Experiences Database

This slightly disturbing story is a *female* cryptid which is taking revenge for some act of voiolence against there own kind imo.

"...At the foot of the bed, sitting and facing away from us, there was what appeared to be a naked man, or a large hairless dog of some sort. Its body position was disturbing and unnatural, as if it had been hit by a car or something. For some reason, I was not instantly frightened by it, but more concerned as to its condition."

The object, known by the locals as "Bicho Voador" (Flying Animal), or "Bicho Sugador" (Sucking Animal), has the shape of a rounded ship and attacks people in isolation.

Oops, the southern U.S males might have a short grey coat and no tail, the opposite to the shaggy long-tailed European were-creatures.

And what does this thread about a creepypasta that's some part of Slenderman rip-off that at least partly originates from a website promoting an upcoming Indie horror game?

Is there anything you won't claim is a two-legged dogman or some sort of super-evolved hyrax creature?

Seriously, two legged dogman creatures taking revenge against humanity,

This is pathetic.

That bit you just quoted only exists within the creepypasta block of text doing the rounds about this dumb Slenderman type urban myth.  There's absolutely no provenance to the story.  It was made up.  There's absolutely no references provided.  It's a fantasy.  Fiction.  Horror fiction.  And bad horror fiction at that.

But you are so inanely gullible that anything that can be taken apart, reassembled, looked at via squinty eyes, turned upside down and pulled inside out and bears some vague resemblance to something else equally as fantastical is gospel truth that proves whatever it is you're trying to prove (and that's a moving target, it's impossible to know from one day to the next what kind of glowbird, underwater giant swimming inverted owl, rock hyrax that looks like an orangutan, rock hyrax that looks like a giant woolly mammoth, etc. you're trying to promote)

There's absolutely no way you can believe this stuff.

Had a feeling it was creepy-pasta.. They're entertaining sometimes, but the rake? Couldn't they come up with a creepier name?

I think everyone is entitled to their opinion, but to call someone "inanely gullible" is going too far.  Try to keep it subjective.
