Alabama’s Wolf Woman of Mobile

In early April of 1971, 50 people reported seeing a half-wolf, half-women creature in the marshes of Mobile. Some said she escaped from the circus and one witness even said she chased them home.

Another one of the mythical creatures from Indigenous legends is the Qalupalik. This Inuit creature lives in the sea and draws children to the water with a hum-like singing.
