Cryptids of the Week: 11/9-11/15, 2014

I've decided to start doing a "Cryptids of the Week" thing on this blog. I was going to last week but didn't put it on here yet, so here are the two "Cryptids of the Week" from last week. Keep in mind that I just picked two random cryptids.

Beast of Bray Road

The Beast of Bray Road is a so called "werewolf" spotted near Elkhorn, Wisconsin. The Beast was first seen in the year 1936, but sightings really took of in the late '80s and continued into the '90s. At the time of the rash of sightings, local newspaper reported Linda S. Godfrey decided to investigate the sightings. She eventually came to believe that the witnesses actually saw something that looked like a werewolf. She went on to write a book about the creature called The Beast of Bray Road: Tailing Wisconsin's Werewolf, which came out in 2003. SHe has since written many more books on werewolves and other cryptid creatures.

Most people know what a Bigfoot is, even if they don't believe they exist. The most famous encounter with a Bigfoot occurred in 1967, when Roger Patterson and Bob Gimlin ran into "Patty" at Bluff Creek, California. Patterson filmed the creature and it is the best evidence for bigfoot's existence, even today. It has never been proven to be a hoax, even if skeptics tell you it has been. Now there are many people committed to the search for Bigfoot. The largest and oldest investigation group is the Bigfoot Field Researchers Organization, or BFRO.

I already have cryptids for this week, but I'll put a poll up if anyone wanted to vote/pick the ones for next week. if you don't, I'll do it myself.
