Some Skinwalker conspiracies suggest the government made contact with extraterrestrials and is covering everything up. Other theories assert that the ranch is home to a portal similar to the Hellmouth, which allows for interdimensional travel.
Animal Mutilation and Disappearances
The Sherman family claims that a number of their cows were mutilated. One such cow had no signs of injury, not even bleeding, other than a hole bored through its eye. Others cows were found sliced up, with organs or other body parts carefully removed. In each case, the Shermans found no blood. A number of other cows, as well as six cats, vanished without a trace. Ranch dogs, meanwhile, were fearful of an unknown presence.
In another instance, the Shermans returned home to find four bulls packed into a trailer. When discovered, the bulls snapped out of a trance and became upset. No one could figure out how four bulls ended up in the trailer, which was locked, and small enough that getting just one in proved difficult for the ranchers, let alone four.
The Bulletproof Werewolf
So the legend goes, just after the Sherman family moved to the ranch, they were approached by a huge, friendly wolf. Not long thereafter, the wolf attacked a calf, prompting the rancher to strike it with a stick, to no avail. He shot the wolf with a .357 Magnum, which produced no results. The wolf was shot two more times with the magnum, then several times with a hunting rifle, with no result. Eventually, the wolf left of its own accord. The rancher followed its tracks, which simply came to an end, as though the wolf ceased to exist as it walked.
Throughout their time there, members of the family claimed to see other large wolves and canine beasts.
Poltergeist activity was reported by the Sherman family shortly after their run in with the bulletproof werewolf. According to a segment on Coast to Coast AM, a paranormal radio news program, the matriarch of the Sherman clan stated she often came home with groceries, unpacked them, and later discovered all the food repacked in shopping backs.The family also reported missing or moved objects, such as a hairbrush found in the freezer when it had last been seen on the bathroom counter. The Shermans heard voices in a language they could not understand, and spotted shadows in the house.
The Muscular Hyena
The Sherman family reported seeing a number of bizarre animals, including a beast that looked similar a hyena on steroids. According to journalist George Knapp, Sherman saw the creature attacking one of his horses, but as he approached, it disappeared, leaving behind only claw marks on the horse’s legs.This same varmint may have been seen by others. The wife of a local cop noticed a similar creature at Skinwalker, and a visitor to the ranch spotted a brutish animal that ran 100 yards in a matter of seconds and roared loudly.
