A cool summer mornin’ in early June is when the legend began,….At a nameless logging camp in Wexford County where the Manistee River ran. ….Eleven lumberjacks near the Garland Swamp found an animal they thought was a dog.
….In a playful mood they chased it around …’til it ran inside a hollow log….. A logger named Johnson grabbed him a stick and poked around inside… Then the thing let out an unearthly scream and came out …and stood upright. .
..None of those men ever said very much about whatever happened then. ….They just packed up their belongings and left that night and were never heard from again.
This is how Steve Cook’s “The Legend” begins and it is touted as the first Michigan Dogman sighting. Since the airing of the Steve cook song, there have been over 500 Wolfman/Dogman sightings.
