Bizarre theories have circulated online that it could be a werewolf or relative of Bigfoot

US wildlife experts are baffled by a “wolf-like” animal that was killed by a Montana farmer.

The rancher near the town of Denton shot the creature last week when it came within several hundred metres of his livestock, said officials.

State wildlife experts said they have been unable to pinpoint its species.

After inspecting the creature, they said they doubt it’s a wolf as its teeth were too short, front paws abnormally small and claws too large.

Bizarre theories have circulated online that it could be a werewolf or a relative of Bigfoot.

In a news release, the Montana Department of Fish, Wildlife, and Parks said it was a “young, non-lactating female and a canid, a member of the dog family that includes dogs, foxes, coyotes and wolves”.

“We have no idea what this was until we get a DNA report back,” a spokesman for the agency, Bruce Auchly, told the Great Falls Tribune.

He added that it may be up to a week before results come in, which should help identify the cryptid.
