In Wisconsin, some residents have reported seeing a creature that looks sort of like a werewolf. It's been sited along Bray Road a number of times.

Back in the early 1990's there were many sightings of a strange creature that roamed around Elkhorn Wisconsin's country side. If you are from Wisconsin mostly likely you heard of this famous tale.
