Michigan Dogman

I was so caught up in website construction this past week that I almost forgot to share Mel’s Cryptid of the Month with you. (Don’t tell her <sheepish grin>).


Every ten years that end in seven, the creature known as the Dogman rises from the depths of wherever it has been to terrorize the people of Michigan. The beast is described as half-man and half-wolf, stands seven-feet-tall and walks on two legs. Most of the encounters of the Dogman are under distressful conditions because the Dogman is a very aggressive cryptid; however, it appears that the monster is out to scare people, not harm them.

 In 1987, a song was written about the Dogman. Out of amusement, Steve Cook created the song called, “The Legend of Dogman”. This song was a hit for people because so many of them could relate to it. You can find the lyrics here.

Have you heard of the Michigan Dogman?

Hope you all have a great weekend!
