[November 13, 1906 - 100 Years Ago]

The hunters over Kenduskeag way are on the trail of a strange animal which has been haunting the woods and pastures in that vicinity for some months past. This animal, according to stories of those who have seen it, seems to be a hybrid of some sort, perhaps a cross between a bear and a bobcat. Only a week ago the animal was seen in a pasture near the road at Worcester's siding. The animal was apparently hunting for field mice and paid little attention to the people in the carriage driving along the road.

Hey! You must not be from Maine. If you were,then you most likely would have at least heard of the beast carcass found. It obviously is real if they found a body! Look it up! I'm not trying to be rude, but sheesh!(>_<)

You might not have noticed that this post was about news from 1906. Historic, in other words, not current. Loren actually examined the carcass, so no worries -- he knows that THAT version of the beast is dead.
