When I first watched the Gable film I found it very creepy and convincing. But then, I looked a little closer. I corresponded with Linda Godfrey (who had already written she believed it was a likely hoax) and pointed out that when the beast arrives at the camera you see a flash of teeth followed by static. You get electronic static on a digital camera, but NOT on a vintage analog film camera - clear sign of a hoax. In addition, (1) if you slow down and watch the creature frame by frame, you can see the guy's pants leg below his ghillie suit at one point; and (3) shortened perspective due to the camera angle made the figure look less human adding to the creepiness.

The guy who created the film talked about his hoax with Monster Quest - it's instructive to read the comments below the film. Several people say he was lying to take credit as the author of a "real" film, the filmed "encounter" was real but he spliced in the surrounding footage, etc. That's one of the main problems with all this paranormal stuff; people become emotinoally invested in their belief in something, and will deny a hoax is a hoax even when the hoaxer admits it and tells us exactly how he did it.

Considering that the technology is there for even the average computer owner, to create fake videos, its odd we dont see many (relatively speaking), especially true when it comes to dog/ wolf men. Reports generally only come from one specific region of the country too (thats a big one to debunk).

Agreed. So many Naysayers won't consider much logic other then "IT CAN'T BE"

Les Stroud has some very good face photos. I posted them here and the NAYSAYERS all laughed at them. No logical thought was that Les is a Major video man of him out in the woods surviving . Why would Les use still photos and not video;were him to have been faking?

You posted his supposed photos of bigfoot, not dog men. That's not what we're talking about in this thread - I was specifically talking about the Gable film in my last post. And I have no idea how presenting a photo or an anecdote is "logic".

I don't trust photographic evidence presented by a "survivor" who claims to be dropped off in the middle of nowhere when he's actually filming his episodes a short distance from an easily accessible road:

This seriously degrades his credibility in my book.

Ive been reading a bit on this, and find it strange these beings are mentioned or referred to so often. Not sure what to make of it. Opinions?
It was probably hypertrichosis.

That would explain the hair, but none of the other aspects (snout, teeth, ears), keep in mind, all the historical accounts, the witnesses describe the beings as 'humans with dog/wolf heads'.

If I was to see a man with hypertrichosis, he would still have the head of a man, it would look nothing like a dogs head.

Linda Godfrey is the person to go to when it comes to the subject of Dog/wolf men.

Loved hearing stories about these beings because they seemed so unique. Very intelligent beings, extremely fast, strong and vicious. I've heard stories of them killing people as well.

Read Linda Godfrey's books and also read and listened to other stories about these beings. Dark Waters has a great Dog Man story that supposedly occurred in Mississippi.

According to the stories they can be shot but it doesn't really affect them. Meaning they'd be more animal than spiritual. Some of the stories don't sound credible at all, but some do. Interesting enough to read up on
