Dwayyo: The Maryland Dogman.
I recently came across new information on the ‘Maryland Dogman’…so I decided to update the orginal past:
Back in May of 2011 I posted a narrative describing theSnallygaster, legendary beast from my neck of the woods in Maryland. Another cryptid from this region is the Dwayyo…not as well known as the Snallygaster, but just as terrifying to those who have encountered the creature.
In the late 18th century, the Pennsylvania Dutch started to settle on the other side of the Mason-Dixon Line in Carroll, Frederick &Washington Counties. Not long after setting down their new roots, tales of the Hexenwolf started to circulate. The description of this beast was similar to the Dwayyo…‘a mammalian biped with features similar to a wolf, but the stance and stature of a human.’These farmers raised livestock for food and revenue, so it was important that their domestic animals be protected from the beast.
