The Buckshaw Beast





This is far more interesting than the Maine Ape, I think. The beast pictured above has been attacking deer around Buckshaw Village in northern England. Some witnesses say it's a cross between a boar and a wolf, while others claim that its movements are far too cat-like for a boar.

What the heck is it? Read more here.

could be a were, i dunno but that is so terribly odd. no one knows anymore, the gov hides so much.

It looks like a boar to me. I agree with very_irregular_girl: this is probably a government mutation (like the jabberjays in the Hunger Games) designed to get rid of some people who are too much trouble for the goverment officials. Or do something else. Or, maybe its just a regular animal that was either really like that or Photoshopped.

What's In My Yard? said...

Not sure what it is but it looks scary. There were recent reports og a bearcat around here.

The Irregular Girl said...

I think it's a hoax. But I don't believe it's the gov, since I don't think technology's at that point yet, but it's getting there . . .

Anybody see Joshua Bell/Renee Fleming/Sting/Dead Composer last night?

Jokes aside, I have to wonder: assuming this is real, what will be done with the animal?

TricksterQueen said...

It's probably some kid named Marco having a bad day and unable to control his morphing powers. He tried to morph a boar but he messed up and ended up morphing half a boar, half a cat.

Ah ha ha. Weird.

mew i changed my name from very_IRREGULAR_girl to very_CURIOUS_girl...

I'm still baffled about this picture.it just doesn't seem right. like is big foot actually real? what about that Japanese creature that is over 30 meters long. i like to think that things like this exist but why is it when we find them its always at the wrong time
