Residents to hunt 8ft 'werewolf' in England

Multiple witnesses claim to have seen a 'half man half dog' creature known locally as 'Old Stinker'.
According to reports, this legendary denizen has been sighted at least seven times over the last few months in and around woodland near Hull, a city in the North-East of England.

"It was stood upright one moment, the next it was down on all fours running like a dog," said one woman who saw the beast near the Barmston Drain back in December. "I was terrified."

"It vaulted 30ft over to the other side and vanished up the embankment and over a wall."
One couple described seeing something 'tall and hairy' feeding on a dead German Shepherd while another witness reported coming across a 'half dog half human' creature while walking her dog.

Sightings of the elusive beast have now become so prevalent in fact that some local residents have taken to organizing a hunt for the creature on the night of the next full moon.

"There is the legend of a werewolf called Old Stinker - a great hairy beast with red eyes, who was so called because he had bad breath," author Charles Christian told the Mail Online.

"It was known for the wolves to dig up the corpses from graveyards. From that sprung the idea that they are supernatural beings, who took the form of werewolves."

Well...what's the body count? The danger level kind of hinges on that, I think

Well not really. If you were walking in the Hull or general East Yorkshire area in the middle of the night and came across this being, just feet away, it could attack you and kill you. You can't take chances. It needs to be caught.

I would wager the chances of being attacked by an actual person would be much more a cause of concern.

I was just kidding in my post #65. Although, many local newspapers actually published reports and sightings of this apparent beast. There hasn't really been any reports of killings, or mutilation of bodies. One eye witness claimed/ reported that she has seen it mid transformation from human to werewolf.  I find it quite difficult to believe that we have a mythical beast such as a werewolf, spotted during mid transformation stages, and roaming the country lanes or streets of Hull or anywhere else for that matter.

Are werewolves mythical? People are definitely seeing some strange, werewolf-like creature in East Yorkshire. Jemma Waller didn't even know about the local werewolf "legend", yet even she saw it.

Werewolves are considered as mythical and folklore creatures/ beasts. Besides, I can't imagine in reality, someone transforming from human to werewolf or vise versa, can you? I agree, people are maybe seeing something which may somewhat resemble such creature/ beast. If however the local news papers are not either fabricating, or over exaggerated the claims or whatever. Or maybe someone attempted and succeeded with an apparent spell to become a werewolf

I do hope the alleged creature did not need help!

I don't get these werewolf stories. Its an 8 foot tall hairy humanoid with a man's face... How is that a werewolf? What changes these cases from bigfoot to werewolf or lizardman or whatever?

I think it really depends on your preferences of creatures where you are located.
