The Hounds of Hell

Well you knew I had to get back to the whole haunted farm saga eventually...I'll continue with the little old woman saga another time...because I just watched something on Monster Quest that seriously got me thinking about the hounds of hell...that roamed the farm from the Silent Woods all the way back to the bluff road.

Monster Quest is not typically a show I watch. It's on the History Channel which pretty much explains my disinterest in it. However my husband does watch it and one day from absolute boredom I sat down and watched an episode...it happened to be about the Chupacabra which actually has its origins in two different places...Texas and Puerto Rico. The version sighted in Puerto Rico is described as two legged and more reptilian like while the sightings in Texas describe a dog/wolf like creature with huge fangs and almost no hair. Several have even been shot and some DNA testing is being conducted. The first reported sightings of the creatures were in 1995.

The episode reminded me of the Hounds of Hell...and make me curious as to their origins. Described as jackel like they do not necessarily sound like the hairless, dry roughed skinned Chupacabra...but it just makes me think...if there are creatures out there roaming that are either a "new animal" or a disformed animal that reproduces in kind then maybe the Hounds of Hell were a freak of nature rather than supernatural....ummm although it hardly explains how they could disappear from one hill side to appear on another...or how they so swiftly avoided bullets.

None the less the world holds many unexplained things...whether of this world or another! Take care...I'll get back to blogging regularly now that Christmas in July is over with and once my work schedule becomes a bit more routine!
