I was recently talking to a friend about the paranormal and how we both agreed that people who experience the paranormal tend to have families who do as well. In other words, it runs in the family.
That being said, both of my parents definitely have had crazy experiences, as I’ve documented here, but my dad really takes the cake. Of all the things he’s told me over the years about his experiences, this one, I think, is really cool. They’re all cool, but this one is at the top of the list.
He saw the Beast of Bray Road.
Only he didn’t know that’s what it was called, and when he saw it, he didn’t even know it was a thing.
For those of you who don’t know, I’m with you, as is he. I just learned about it yesterday, although I’ve heard his story a few times over the years.
The Beast was first reported back in the 1930s on rural Bray Road outside Elkhorn, Wisconsin. It has been seen since then, all through the years, by many different people around Wisconsin, through Illinois, all the way up into Canada, and it’s called the same name in all locations.
Reports started growing in the 80s and 90s and a newspaper sent a reporter out to write a piece on it. At first skeptical, she later changed her mind because of all of the testimonies. Her reports were all collected in a book, The Beast of Bray Road: Tailing Wisconsin’s Werewolf. It was also made into a movie, The Beast Of Bray Road.
