No true believers, you did not misread the title. Is there a werewolf in Paulding County? Probably not- but that hasn’t stopped the nearly two dozen sightings that have been reported since 2006. You read that right, nearly TWO DOZEN reported sightings of a werewolf-like creature have occurred here in Paulding County, Georgia.
The area in question seems to stretch from High Shoals Road all the way to Lucas Road. Nearly every report is the same. Someone’s driving their car and sees something with incredible speed cross the road in front of them. They slow down to see what it was, only to be greeted with a glimpse of the alleged Paulding County werewolf.
Towering over any known canine, people claim it to be nearly 7 feet tall. That’s more than twice the size of an adult large breed dog. All reports have described the beast as having piercing red eyes and a dull charcoal grey coat with similarly colored skin exposed. Every report about the physical description has remained the same. And we can confirm with confidence that most of the people who send us reports of this creature have no connections to one another. They are seemingly and entirely independent reports.
Now don’t go out there with your guns blazin’, hunting some werewolf on the backroads of Paulding County just yet! More than likely, the werewolf is just local folklore, although recent sightings have put that into question. These two dozen reported werewolf sightings have happened as lately as last month (July 2015).
With that being said, what do you think these people are seeing? It’s not a school-of-thought we usually subscribe to, but who can really say what experiences may or may not have happened? We don’t mean to demean anyone’s experiences or beliefs. We would just like to know where more people stand on the matter.
