A story at Breitbart.com tells of a mysterious "mutant-hybrid" animal found dead in Maine, apparently the victim of a passing vehicle (that is, road kill).
"Residents are wondering if an animal found dead over the weekend may be the mysterious creature that has mauled dogs, frightened residents and been the subject of local legend for half a generation. "
In the story, it is described as "evil-looking", like "something out of a Stephen King story", and having "a horrible stench" even while alive.
I couldn’t help but think of that scene from Close Encounters where all these concerned citizens are trying to convince their local officials about the seriousness of these strange UFO sightings, when this guy stands up and says "I saw Bigfoot once. 1951 back in Sequoia National Park. Had a foot on him thirty-seven inches heel to toe. It made a sound I would not want to hear twice in my life.".
