The Beast of Cannock Chase is back - and on the hard-shoulder. Motorists on Junction 10A of the M6, near Cannock, jammed Highways Agency helplines on Wednesday morning, with reports of a 'wolf-like creature' racing between lanes at rush hour. Motorists looked on in disbelief as the three-foot long creature, described as 'greyish black', raced between lanes, dodging stunned motorists before diving for cover in nearby trees. Highways Agency staff joined motorway police to hunt for the creature and later stated the 'beast' was likely to be a husky dog. But aspokesperson at Saga Radio, whose eye-in-the-sky traffic reports were first to clock the event, said: "Highways staff said that it was probably a husky dog.

But everyone who saw it is convinced it was something more than a domestic dog. I know it sounds crazy, but these people think they've seen a wolf." With wolves extinct on our shores for centuries, could it be the mysterious creature was, in fact, the legendary Beast of Cannock Chase? World-renowned paranormal investigator Nick Redfern certainly thinks so. He said: "Many big cats, such as panthers, were kept as pets until a couple of decades ago. The 1976 Dangerous Animals Act put an end to that, making it an offence toown them. What happened was, many of these pets were released into the wild as a convenient way for their owners to be rid of them. "It is possible that by now, these animals are on to their third or fourth generations. They could be the big cats people are seeing on the Chase now.

Werewolf

A werewolf is one of the central figures of the oldest superstitions. This monster featured in numerous Hollywood blockbusters has been terrifying children and adults worldwide for thousands of years as well as vampires, witches, mermaids, ghosts and sorcerers.Werewolf is also known by the name ‘lycanthrope’ meaning “a wolf human” and originating from the Greek word Likantropia. Some dictionaries define the word as ‘turning a witch into a wolf”.The werewolf theme was always popular in the folklore worldwide, and each country has its name for the creature. Beginning from the epoch of Romulus and Remus, stories about wolves and werewolves excited the imagination of suchprominent figures as Jean-Jack Rousseau, Carolus Linnaeus and Jonathan Swift.

The talented writers composed an entire series of wonderful stories about werewolves. However, the werewolf is little known as compared with his fellow, the vampire. The werewolf is more multiform and more mysterious than the vampire. The modern science may easily discredit all the mythical characteristics given to the vampire. But it is known that in old times some strange disease really affected entire settlements and turned people living there into furious beasts. Those diseased revealed all the classical symptoms of lycanthropy. The interest to the werewolf issue seems to be inexhaustible. In the 20th century, filmmakers were inspired with the issue for making a great number of films about werewolves. Today, fiction and journalism reveal even a deeperapproach to the werewolf issue and consider it in a wider aspect. December 17, 1976 London’s The Daily Mail published a story entitled ‘Werewolf Killer Caught, The Police Say’ that told about the seizure of a criminal known as the Paris werewolf for committing numerous killings. At the end of WWII, Nazis founded a terrorist organization code named Werwolf (Werewolf). Criminals are often described with the strong moral metaphor ‘werewolves’ when they commit really wild series killings, violations that are beyond logic; when they practice cannibalism, tortures, sadomasochism and Satanism.The irony of the metaphor means that the wolf never attacks and kills itself unless it is hungry or wounded. According to recent researches, wolves in a pack maintain close trusting relations where the entire pack is based upon mutual responsibility. And in casesome ......

Werewolf

I have investigated a veritable plethora of strange phenomena in my time as a researcher of the paranormal, but certainly one of the weirdest things to cross my path was the British werewolf. From the darkest corners of jolly old England, Scotland, and Wales come numerous reports of encounters with large, wolf-like man-beasts that prowl the countryside by both day and night.The British researcher and author Andy Roberts uncovered details of a strange creature that was seen in the vicinity of Flixton in the north of England in a.d. 940. The beast, said Roberts, appeared to have been a combination of a large black dog, a phantom felid, and a werewolf.It was popularly described by the terrifiedvillage folk as possessing abnormally large eyes that glowed in the dark, a long tail, and a terrible stench.

The creature also attacked and mutilated livestock, dogs, and even people. Not only that; rumors circulated that the beast was under the control of a local magician, who was manipulating it for distinctly evil purposes. The fog of time, however, has effectively ensured that the full facts pertaining to the Flixton werewolf will remain a mystery. Equally strange is an account from writer Tom Slemen that concerns a werewolf legend that centered on the North Wales town of Denbigh. Supposedly, in the latter part of the 18th century, such a creature stalked the area, killing both man and beast over a period of several years. Interestingly, the town of Denbigh owes its name to another strange creature: a fire-breathing dragon.This beast, according to legend, haunted the vicinity and scared away the entire populace, until it was slain by the 12-fingered “Sir John of the Thumbs” of the Salisbury family who “hewed off its head.” All the people thereupon cried “Dim Bych,” or “no more dragon,” which happens to be the derivation of the name of the town.

Beast in the Window From noted author Graham McEwan comes the highly intriguing and decades-old account of Andrew Warren, the grandson of an elder Kirk from the Hebrides Islands, Scotland. According to McEwan, Warren’s grandfather came home one morning in a very excited state and told the boy to come and look at some curious remains he had found in a dried-up tarn. It looked to be a human skeleton with a wolf-like head, andth......
