The “Beast of Hale”

I stumbled across this story recently, and thought it was quite interesting. We often hear of mysterious sightings of creatures, animals and the unexplained; so to hear of a local story nicknamed “the beast of Hale”, was quite exciting. Many people had wrote in to “The Messenger” saying they had spotted a large four legged creature stalking the streets. One report compared the creature to a Jackal, while others said it looked like it has the head of a fox but with a muscular body.

The news prompted many to try and capture an image of “the beast”, but local experts believe it is simply a garden fox. A fox often looks quite different to how most expect it to look; rather than the perfectly groomed and vibrant orange animals you might see on TV, they can actually look a lot dirtier and perhaps more frightening then you would think.

So has some local hysteria convinced many locals that a garden fox is in fact something more, or is there more to this story than meets the eye?
