Trailer Park Cynocephali

A Dogman at the Campfire


Date | 2017
Location | Ontario Canada


In August of 2016, my family and I were camping at a very remote location, about 4 hours East of the Canada/Michigan border. Out there, it felt like miles away from civilization. 

It was 2am, deep into the night, I was the only one who was sober. I was sitting in front of a still pond on a wooden chair, facing away from the water and looking out over the campfire toward the trailer where my family was staying. I could see the door to the trailer, but the night had grown so dark by then, I could barely see anything else.

Suddenly I noticed the light from the fire illuminating the bulging eyes of something standing in the doorway in front of me. The fire was only 3 ft in front of me, so the entity standing just behind it was really close. Too close. Whatever this thing was seemed to be leaning against the doorframe of the trailer, and watching my family and I with its massive, black eyes. It was tall but not ‘huge’, and it had a face resembling a dog’s face. 

In disbelief and confusion, I stared at this THING for probably about a minute before glancing away, my mind trying to figure out exactly what it was that I was seeing – But when I turned back, the entity was gone. 

Minutes later, my sister walked past me toward the trailer to use the bathroom, and I quickly followed her as she went inside. I grabbed a flashlight and pointed it out into the thick forest surrounding the campsite, but I couldn’t see anything. 

Despite disappearing so suddenly, I don’t feel like it teleported or anything. That side of the trailer is all forest and the entity could’ve easily slipped off into the woods.

Even though I didn’t feel directly threatened by the creature, an unsettling feeling washed over me and I ended up having to leave the campsite.

everyone else was ‘hammered’, they likely would have picked on her
Had never heard of dogmen or anything like this -In her research to find similar accounts, she ended up reaching out to an author for Paranormal World Wiki, where this account was first published (LISN)
Includes images – drawings she drew herself …SHOW NOTES
In an email to us: definitely wasn’t a dogman! Anyone seen anything like this
Pointed to St Chirstopher — Cynocephali — [The late 10th century German bishop and poet Walter of Speyer portrayed St. Christopher as a giant of a cynocephalic species in the land of the Chananeans (Canaan in the New Testament) who ate human flesh and barked. [link]
‘Super chilled and far more ‘human like’ then ‘dog like’ (aggressive)”
I have not returned to the pond … curiosity wants me to go, but I am a bit nervous …When I finally told my brother, he took me very seriously and did spend time there alone hoping to witness it. Unfortunately, my brother, only brother (family of 6) passed away last April. He was the only other person in my family to believe me! He said he has seen weird prints in the snow in the area, as has my dad.
Anyways, I’d love to know if anyone else has witnessed THIS type of creature?!??
