In 1790, a beast was spotted in Wales that defied explanation. It was described as being a large wolf that had no tail. They believed it to be around seven feet in length. Soon after, rumors would litter the countryside about werewolves.
A stagecoach traveling between Denbigh and Wrexham was attacked just after dusk. There was a full moon out that was blood-red, it is believed locals there were responsible for coining the term, “bad moon on the rise.”
The large black beast was nearly as big as the coach and tore into one of the horses. It began eating.
A local man spotted tracks in the snow the next morning. He followed the enormous prints to a near-by house, he passed the bloody field where the beast had mutilated the cattle and livestock.
They found the neighbor had barricaded himself in his home and hid. The farmer said the best stood on its hindlegs and peered in the windows with blue eyes. He said it also tried to knock at the door, but he was too afraid to respond in any way.
In Bickerton Hills, Cheshire, two travelers in 1979 reported an enormous wolf-like beast had attacked and mutilated two vagrants in front of them.
