"Hybrid mutant of something" killed by car

Shawn says: "An animal found dead along the powerlines over the weekend may be the mystery creature that has roamed the area for years, mauling dogs and frightening residents."

Michelle O'Donnell of Turner spotted the animal near her yard about a week before it was killed. She called it a "hybrid mutant of something."

"It was evil, evil looking. And it had a horrible stench I will never forget," she told the Sun Journal of Lewiston. "We locked eyes for a few seconds and then it took off. I've lived in Maine my whole life and I've never seen anything like it."

For the past 15 years, residents across Androscoggin County have reported seeing and hearing a mysterious animal with chilling monstrous cries and eyes that glow in the night.

My heart skipped a beat when I saw this post. I grew up in Turner, and the
legend of the "wolf creature" was a source of childhood pride for me. It
never failed to scare the pants off of my friends while we were out walking at
night. It's sad to see my hometown legend dead. RIP, little scary wolf-thing.
