'Wolf-like' creature shot in U.S. puzzles experts

'Wolf-like' creature shot in U.S. puzzles experts

Unidentified animal was discovered and shot in the us city of Denton, Montana.

Was it a wolf, some type of hybrid, or a creature that hasn't been seen in Montana since the Ice Age?

Inspecting photos of the animal, Fish, Wildlife and Parks' wolf specialists doubted it was a purebred wolf, as the canine teeth were too short, the front paws too small and the front paw claws too long.

FWP spokesman Bruce Auchly says that rather than speculate about what it is, FWP sent the carcass to the agency's lab in Bozeman where tissue samples will be collected, and then shipped to the U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service Laboratory in Ashland, Oregon.

The process of this DNA testing can take a week, but they do not know how long it will take depending on the lab's backlog of cases.

What do you think this odd animal is?

"That could very well be what's being called Dogman", one commenter suggested. "That's the last I heard of it".

Dire wolves were native to the Americas and larger than their cousins, the gray wolf. "They're spotted each day and the government quells any and all reports".

He added. "One was out somewhere in eastern central Montana killing sheep like insane".

Others are also of the opinion that the mysterious creature can be a coywolf (a coyote wolf hybrid), or a wolfdog, which might have been bred in captivity and later released into the wild, according to BBC. Several people report being strong armed into keeping quiet about their reports by men wearing black suits.

United Kingdom experts said the animal was most likely a cross between a wolf and a coyote or dog, and may even be part of an elaborate prank. "Look into if you don't believe it".

"Several things grabbed my attention when I saw the pictures", Ty Smucker, a wolf management specialist at MFWP told the Great Falls Tribune (GFT).

- It's a wolf-dog hybrid: Wolves and dogs are interfertile, according to the International Wolf Center, meaning they can interbreed and produce offspring that can then produce more offspring.

Only time, and a exorbitant amount of testing, will tell whether or not humankind has discovered something as exciting as a new sub-species of wolf or as freaky as Montana's own version of a Chupacabra.
