Texas is HUGE with a population of 26 million and growing. There are ten different climate regions in Texas and eleven different ecological regions. There are vast areas with little or no civilization. So I guess IF monsters exist, Texas would be an excellent place to hide!
These were the seven most exciting monsterly stories from my Texas supernatural notebook. There are more where these came from. O_O
I've learned about many of these legends from a creeptastic book called WEIRD TEXAS. I've went on many road trips inspired by the stories in this book.
Aaaaaa-oooooo!! Let's chat werewolves today. It seems there are many legends of werewolves around the world. These are a few stories of werewolves in Texas. The story I found most bizarre was the legend of a baby girl in Marshall, Texas back in the 1950's, abducted from her crib allegedly by a large dog or wolf. She was believed to have survived and turned feral, and raised by the pack of dogs or wolves. She's still known today as the Wild Woman near those parts and is said to still roam, sometimes seen on all fours through the dense forests. The last known sighting was in the 1990's. Is that weird or what?

We also have the legendary Converse Werewolf story from the 1800's. You can read the longer version HERE. Here's the short version: A young rancher's son was sent out to hunt. He never returned. When a search party found him, a large wolfman was bent over, devouring him. A few of the men shot at the creature, but it escaped.
Well folks, it's been a monsterly romp these past few days. I've enjoyed reading your posts and meeting some new friends! Thank you so much to our hosts. See y'all around!
