From the eerie back roads of Wisconsin, to the fields and villages of Europe, sightings of upright canids go back centuries. Prepare for the ultimate journey into the dark side of Cryptozoology, as The Bray Road Beast uncovers a secret history that touches on everything from the occult to ancient wolf-like beings with hidden knowledge.
