Cemetery at center of 'werewolf' sighting claims

The so-called 'Werewolf of Camberwell' has been sighted several times over the years, according to reports.
Situated in south London and dating back 170 years, the aptly-named Camberwell Old Cemetery is reportedly home to a familiar supernatural creature that is said to skulk among the gravestones.

Tales of this alleged werewolf recently caught the attention of local researcher Andy McGrath who discovered two intriguing encounters that took place at the cemetery 8 years apart.

In the first instance, which took place on October 9th, 1996, a man had been taking a shortcut through the cemetery when something grabbed him by the arm and smashed him into the ground.

"He saw a large creature, with dark fur and a head like a German shepherd, looking at him intently, slobbering and growling and sniffing his body up and down, just as a dog would," said McGrath.

"Just as quickly as the attack started, it was over and the beast sprinted off on its hind legs."
The second encounter, which occurred in 2004, involved two witnesses.

"We heard a low growl," one of them said. "Then a large tree in the corner of the cemetery was shaking incredibly hard as if something really powerful was shaking it with all its might."

"It was definitely not made by a person or an animal. The tree looked as if the roots were ready to be ripped out. My friend and I took to our heels and ran as fast as we could in different directions."

"We could not rationalize the sheer terror we both felt. We knew we had to get as far away from the cemetery as we possibly could. There is something very sinister there."

So could there really be a werewolf stalking this 170-year-old cemetery ?

"If a creature is described as being animal-like, then it probably is an animal and not uncommonly, a known animal; even if the qualities it portrays seem superficially supernatural, at the time," said McGraph.

OK DUDE WAKE UP, You know a very funny thing happened today in this thread, a new member asked me the following question. When did this site turn into a page where people pretend to be monsters?  Now isn't that some funny chit man!

Hate to tell you, but the fact that I've only signed up to post recently doesn't mean I haven't followed this site for years.  You might not be able to tell from the current state of things, but at one point, there were some pretty intelligent minds here.  But by all means, don't let me stop you from trying to make people believe that you're a werewolf.  Some of you on this site could benefit from some serious mental healthcare.

If you click on his name you will see he has been a member since July of 2019.   "Werewolves", by definition, are humans who transform into a wolf-like creature.   So yes, they are monsters.   And they do not exist.

There still are some very intelligent people that are members of this forum, so I suppose not much has changed. My comments above were not ment to belittle you, I honestly thought you comments about people pretending to be a Werewolf was very funny.

By chance, does anyone remember the guy here about 10 years back who claimed that he and his brother were wendigo hunters? I kinda want to go back and thank him for all the laughs I had at his expense.

This kind of thing would never happen in the USA. Someone would pull out a 9mm and pop a cap in that wolf's  a-$-$.

Sadly i missed that fun, there are other forums out there for this type thing the problem is most are just coddle sites for dear true believers, countless pages of a ghost did this or that to me with 20 pages of others tossing in their ghost experences imnsho its not unlike the folks who flocked to giant rock for UFO conventions in the 50s 60s, basically every attendee had a story about riding in a flying saucer to venus or Jupiter. Hit post too soon, This site is middle ground but tell an extraordinary story get ready to be asked for evidence or proof.
