These are supposedly eyewitness accounts of encounters with the Dogman...As I have stated I do not put much faith in eyewitness accounts in stories like these but watch it and see what your opinion is.
Prior to the book Hunt for Skinwalker Ranch there had never been any reports of Dogmen on the ranch...From what I have researched Dogmen reports did not surface until 2008/2009 some 3 to 4 years after the book....It is believed that these things sort of haunt the outskirts of the ranch....But as with everything else in "Bad Paranormal" all of this is speculation because all we have are witness accounts at this point.....Kind of like Bigfoot. Thousands have seen it but yet there has never been a body, bones or anything else found of it....Again all we have are witness accounts. Below is a video claiming compelling evidence of Dogmen:
Again I am no expert at all on native American culture. But if you watch the other video I posted (cheif Dan) on Skinwalker he certainly talks about Skinwalksers as being shape shifters that can inhabit the bodies of men and animals. He even in part describes the ritual you need to invoke to become a shape shifter (Skinwalker). It certainly seems by his account something they believe exists. he talks about his people being afraid to go out at night when the dogs bark in fear of it. Is there a difference between myth and folklore? I would think most would use the terms interchangeably??..................................Dogmen are actually considered myth more than folklore...To Native Americans they maybe folkloristic in nature but the basis of them (Dogmen) are grounded in myth.
Here is an interesting video on the Beast of Bray Road: A creature that was reported in 1936 on a rural road outside of Elkhorn Wisconsin...
Thanks AO, good explanation, makes sense.Fairy tales, myths, legends, and folklore may seem the same, but they are profoundly different, including fictionalized stories and fantastical tales.www.thoughtco.com
Thanks AO, good explanation, makes sense.
But with the obvious excliusion of a Fairy Tale, do you think the average person who sees something and reads a tale about dogmen makes any distinction between Myth and Folklore and Legend? I still think the average person would give the differences little thought when seeing our Dogman on the side of the road.
LOL. AO would pull rank and ban me first disagreement. I'm happy here lol
LOL, that's fair enough. The problem I see though is the definition of riff raff. A UFO forum by definition alone will potentially attract at times some out there tales and opinions. Are they Riff Raff? Some forums on the internet are so rooted in one side of the topic as to intimidate and scare away views from the other? There are lots I have looked at and just don't post because I know I will instantly propelled into an argument. That's why I love this place so much. LETA has forgotten more than most of us know, yet she has a great way of letteng all views be told without making people feel stupid. So yeah.. A forums definition of Riff Raff can make or break it in my opinion.Keep out the damn rift raft for one, and second I am in no hurry to open it up to the public right now. And there is a lot I have to work on.
