Kayaker claims to have photographed 'half-man, half-dog' creature

It this 'dogman' or just a gap in the trees ? Image Credit: John
The man had been out fishing in Australia when he captured the image.
Is there a dog-like hominid stalking the wilds of the Australian outback ? One man, who has been identified only as 'John', certainly seems to think so.

The story goes that John had been out fishing in his kayak on Boxing Day last year when he had an encounter that he has since likened to reports of a half-dog, half-man creature ( or 'dogman' ) that has been sighted in the US state of Michigan as far back as the 1800s.

"I noticed that every time I took a stroke with the paddle of my kayak, whatever this thing was, it was taking a stride to each paddle I was taking," he told the Believe: Paranormal and UFO Podcast.

"The creature, I actually got it in the photo, and what I think it is - I've spoken to a few people - and I reckon it's a dogman."
"After that I couldn't go back to the area to check it out by myself, I was petrified for probably a month after it. I was waking up in the middle of the night and seeing the creature in my dreams."

When he finally did pluck up the courage to return to the area to go fishing again, he heard what he believed to be a large creature smashing its way through the bushes followed by a loud roaring noise.

"I'd heard about [the dogman], and thought it was a joke, but actually I've had encounters with it now and it's terrifying," he said.

Unfortunately the photograph he did manage to capture is inconclusive, showing an indistinct shape in the trees that could arguably be anything at all, or perhaps nothing more than a gap in the foliage.

Nonetheless, John himself remains absolutely adamant that what he encountered was real.

To me it was a lot like looking at clouds. Look long enough and you will begin to sort of see all sorts of things. It looks a little like a racoon or a dog that I used to have or...

I guess one man's dogman is another man's tree.

I'm going with tree stump/snag. As usual, even blurry, there's just ONE picture. If it was tracking him, you'd think there'd be a dozen pictures at least.
