Did anyone read that apparently true story in history of the girl that encountered a werewolf while tending to sheep in Pennsylvania? Is there any truth to it? Or was it totally made up?

I've lived in PA for the last 20 years and I've never heard that one. D'you know where the story originated or is supposed to have taken place?

Thats what i am wondering also I read the story from a magazine my friend had a long long time ago and I just remembered it! My friend told me they read that same story in a book

It goes like this a boy that saw this take place writes about it years later of a little girl in PA that was having serious trouble with wolves and she had to watch over the sheep by herself as her parents were always away

anyway this guy who was a young man was hired to work for the little girls parents so this is how he got involved

I cant remember much more then that sad.gif all i remember is it took place in the hills of Penn


Google seems to not turn up anything on this either which is driving me INSANE!

No, I've never heard of it. Do you remember the magazine title, the article, or any more information? It is kind of useless starting a thread like this if you do not have any more information/evidence except for a faint story at the back of your mind that you heard from an old magazine.

BIGFOOT! Was it trying to climb out of a freezer?

Sorry.

But I mean, it walked more "upright" than an ape, but if it was dark how could you be sure? Why does it have to be a werewolf? Wouldn't you see a nice, long, muzzle and pointed ears? Wouldn't it be howling at the full moon? For all they know, it could have been some paranoid hiker that needed to shave.

Well, interesting, I guess. Not saying it isn't true or trying to make fun of them - I'm just saying how I don't like it when people automatically assume that it's a werewolf. It could have been a number of other things.

But thanks for the sighting, interesting if nothing else.

yeah, I know it ended up being more of a bigfoot sighting than anything...but the terms werewolf and pennsylvania were both mentioned, and that's all I could find on the net in that respect.

Reminds me of the American Werewolf episode of MonsterQuest. Kept comparing all the sightings to ape-like beings.
Quite a load of crap. What's the fun in having a werewolf abound if all you're going to do is call him a Bigfoot? Think of how he feels! sad.gif

Never heard the story but I will say they are possible at the very least and undesirable at their very best.

I am afraid that they are not possible at all. The closest someone is going to get to being a werewolf is for them to imagine they are, other than that they are fantasy and will always remain that way.

those two things never go together, and should give it away.
