White creatures at Marley Woods!

On September 4, 2008 the SIU encountered yet another type of unusual activity in the Marley Woods. A property owner south of Site 1 was in the cabin area when he saw two extremely large dog-like animals some 880 feet away. They were in the corner of two fields and were walking slowly together.
He stated the animals would weigh at least 200 lbs. As he had many cattle in that field he was afraid they might attack and kill his cattle. He grabbed his rifle and hit one of the animals “making it red” with no reaction from the animals. They didn’t react to the shot and continued walking slowly away. No blood was found where the animal was hit.
September 6, 2008 - Two days later, the daughter of the owner saw the two white animals on her ranch located a short distance from the 9/4/08 event. She stated they looked to be in good condition with no blood or evidence of a gunshot wound.
September 21, 2008 - Fifteen days later and approximately 3,175 feet due north of the original sighting, the Site 1 property owner found clumps of long, thick white hair on a barbed wire fence. Ted and Tom went to the area, photographed the untouched hair, and placed the samples in double air tight plastic bags. The hair was found on the west side of a cattle lane 11 feet from the east barbed wire fence. More samples were found on that fence.
October 22, 2008 - additional hair was found by the property caretaker on a barbed wire fence 1,408 feet northeast of the 9/21/08 samples.
October 29, 2008 - 7 days later, Site 1 caretaker found two clumps of the white hair on a fence 1,364 feet east of the original samples. Ted found additional samples of the white hair at five locations within 20 feet of each other. These samples were located 670 feet north of the 10/22/08 hair. Two of the clumps were on the top barbed wire strand 4.5 feet above the ground. The hair measured 16 inches in length. These and some of the previous samples were sent to a microbiologist for identification.
November 16, 2008 - two large samples of the white hair found in a fence corner located 295 feet southwest of the 10/22/08 samples and 489 feet northwest of the 10/29/08 material. The white hair was not on a fence but on the ground just beyond the fences.
November 21, 2008 - The SIU received a report from the microbiologist regarding the hair samples. While these are preliminary results, “none of the samples have matched any known laboratory controlled specimens which include several varieties of domestic dogs.” Comparisons were done with a number of other animals including bears.
December 11, 2008 - A short distance south of Marley a witness of excellent reputation who had heard nothing about the white “dogs” reported seeing a huge white animal. After a short time it stood on its back legs and appeared as tall as a large bear and solid white.
December 22, 2008 - The Site 1 property owner found a thick clump of the white hair near the original 1 & 2 samples. The hair was rubbed off and on the ground, none on the nearby fence.

So, as we enter 2009, the mystery of the “enormous white animals” continues along with our investigation. We have provided various residents with imaging equipment in hopes of capturing images of these anomalous creatures, and with the upcoming winter snow, we hope to find tracks...
