    Isn't one of the bigger theories that it was a guy who killed and ate parts of children and then claimed he was a werewolf in defense or something like that?

    Okay but seriously, can we take a moment to appreciate how great Shane is at Multitasking. He does puppet shows, listens to scary stories and still manages to keep his job down in satan-town.

    Is it only me or everytime I watch the professor and Ryan's relationship is similar to that one teacher/professor who doesn't really like that student neither he is good or bad, or smart or dumb. Hence, that professor ignoring that student's intelligence.

    it would make sense if it were a male lion because they go for the neck, also we must consider this was during a time Europeans first discovered African wildlife, im sure some dip shit was like ooh ill bring one home, and then couldnt find a way to kill it.

    There are a number of animal species that do go for the neck. The best example are the felines; they pounce on their prey, bite the neck and use their long fangs to hold the neck until the prey is dead. Dogs also aim for the neck and face, but usually bite the limbs first to stop prey. In general, felines also kill cleaner than dogs. Felines usually leave only a bite mark on the neck. Dogs, on the other hand, rip open their prey's necks.

    Honestly, I’m starting to think that the monster was just a number of animals escaped into the area, each having been sighted by frightened folks, and just hobbled together into a monster since everyone were scared and made some horrid thing up. Yup, that’s what I’m going to go with, it does go in line with the accounts.
