A Werewolf and a Cemetery
Over at Mysterious Universe, Jason Offutt relates a fascinating story of the werewolf kind. It starts like this...
"The lonely cemetery near the small town of Brunswick, Missouri, rises like ancient ruins on a hill at the end of a dusty gravel road. A dark canopy of trees covers the half-mile long stretch of rocks and dirt, hiding the path from the sky. Ryan Straub, founder of the Missouri-based ghosthunting group Tir Firnath, has often visited the cemetery and experienced strange things. However, nothing has disturbed him there as much as what he and his friend Jeremy Taylor saw standing on that gravel road in the dark on Halloween 2000.
"As we were leaving, we were in the middle of the hills and we saw a very large dog in the road,” Straub said. The grayish-brown beast was at least 250 pounds and feeding off road kill. It didn’t move as the truck headlights flooded over it and the vehicle creaked to a stop. As the stench of wet dog crept into the truck, the men realized they had encountered something they shouldn’t have seen."
