Stone carving reveals possible werewolf in Texas

 

Those of you familiar with Texas know that it is a hotbed for werewolf activity – in particular, modern-werewolf texas carvingday sightings of the chupacabra are extremely prevalent.  So it’s really not much of a surprise to find out that werewolf sightings in Texas actually go back quite far.  One of the most mysterious sightings is from the Hill Country section of Texas – Kimble County. In the late 1800s a man named N.Q. Patterson settled into this sparsely populated county.  Patterson became the county treasurer, and eventually even the county judge.  Patterson was also a tomb-stone cutter by trade, and so was experienced at cutting and carving stone.  It’s here that the story becomes interesting.  Apparently Patterson’s hobby became carving images into the limestone rocks near where he lived.  But it is one of his carvings in particular that is controversial.  Patterson carved a very large image of a face into a stone near the town of Cleo, Texas.  The face resembled a part-human creature – it has fangs, a snarl, glinting eyes, and a broad nose.  Many believed that the image could represent a werewolf – possibly one that Patterson had seen, or perhaps that roamed the area, or maybe that he simply heard of.  It is interesting to note that in this area of Texas it is also believed that there was an Indian man who was a shape-shifter, and often shifted into a wolf.  Whether or not Patterson simply took his idea for the image he carved from this legend, or actually saw the creature itself is unclear.  But what is clear, is that the carving has caused considerable controversy over what it in fact represents and whether or not it is proof of a werewolf sighting  The carving has been dubbed face “Cleo Face”and today, supposedly it still remains on a piece of private land near Cleo Texas, though it is said that the Cleo Face is now weather-worn, and becoming difficult to decipher.

We wer sitting at the table, and one of my buds had one of those ‘I love B*obies bracelets, and we took turns hittin eachother with it. I was turned around, when one of my frienemies hit me in the neck with it. I turned around and grabbed it, then I hit him with it. he stopped, and then my friend that owned the bracelet made him put his head to the table, and she mouthed it to me that I needed to take his cheeseburger. When she hit it, I grabbed the burger and passed it around the table. one of the kids took half, and handed it back to me. I took
