Sightings of mysterious bipedal canines have been hitting the headlines in Michigan for over 100 years.

One of the more unusual cryptozoological mysteries, the Dogman is said to be a strange bipedal hominid with the head of a dog and the body of a man. First reported as far back as 1887, sightings of creatures resembling the description of the Dogman have been pouring out of Michigan and other neighboring states ever since.

The story is cool but like any other creatures out there we can't verify its existence, it's just that: cool story. IMO

Well, there could be one, we don't know for sure. On the other hand, the people who claimed they say them were lying. We don't really know. But still, cool topic.

I'd like to think it's a science experiment gone wrong. Like, from The Island of Dr. Moreau.

I have come to believe that creatures such as these are demons. Another example would be the Mothman.

Probably a bear based on the narrative. But, just in case, might I suggest placing a large fire hydrant with digital camera in the vicinity.

@ highdesert50 that's an idea, some bears can look very doggy, and if it was a skinny young bear the kid may have mistaken it for something else entirely.

And ha yes Anubis springs to mind, he would be very tall and muscular I would think..

I believe it's a possibility, but then a lot of other questions come to mind. If it's a demon what exactly does it do out in the wild as opposed to simply hunting for food? Aren't they suppposed to do the devils bidding? Well...there are humans out there living in the woods and under bridges. I bet there are all kinds of odd humans out there, I guess there are all kinds of demonic entities out there too.

Edit: Because I can't see the smiley faces on UM mobile so I tried guessing them and it didn't work out. :\

Yeah, I love stories like this. Someone needs to make another NON-twilight type of werewolf/vampire movie.

Once again, emphasizing NON-twilight.

I think this should be in the Two-Legged Dogman database.

Monster Quest did a show on this and many of the witnesses took polygraphs, it's a good show.

passing a polygraph doesnt equate to the existance of dogmen though.... it just shows that these people believed what they saw was the dogman .. and we all know how reliable eyewitness testimony is especially underhigh stress circumstances

Unfortunately the polygraph is not a reliable method to determine the validity of someone's statement. If the person being tested has no training in countermeasures, it can discriminate truth from lies somewhat above chance, but still below perfection. Polygraph countermeasures can be as simple as getting a decent night's of rest, going to the testing calm and being confident. In several countries outside the U.S. it is inadmissible as evidence in court.

I tend to think that it is just a misidentified Bigfoot.
