Stories of Dogman continue to come up throughout our travels and research into the Sasquatch phenomenon. This summer as we crossed the Midwest, we sat down with various tribal members across the Sioux, Lakota, and Wendat tribes, and heard many right of passage stories of young hunters earning their stripes. While doing so these young hunters would then wear the pelts and skins as a status amongst the hunters and as a courage cloak so to speak. While this type of behavior is very common amongst tribes, would you think it could be possible the hunters within the Sasquatch Clan's also practice this same behavior?
Native American Hunters Sneaking up in Wolf Skins
The practice of hunters wearing, pelts, skins, and masks are not uncommon to tribes, and for those that subscribe to the native tales that Sasquatch is just another form of tribe or human, it seems plausible that Sasquatch could've taken on this same behavior - wearing the mask of a dead coyote, wolf, or other prey as a badge of courage and or status amongst the clan. Could this explain these odd encounters of Dogman? Is it really just a Sasquatch in wolves clothing? Let's consider.

The practice of a hunter wearing one's kill as a "status symbol "amongst a social group is very common and this practice has existed across the world, and still exists in many cultures today. The more powerful the creature killed the more powerful the hunter is amongst his or her peer group. Across the world the practice of conquering the most ferocious of beasts in one region brings immediate respect amongst the tribes.
So is it probable Sasquatch wears it's prey to show off and display it's level of courage, and if so is man the ultimate target? Across the world, from Alaska, to Australia to Africa, the tribes continue these types of cultural behaviors, so it is not all that far fetched that Sasquatch could be doing the same. could it? After all Sasquatch has been purported to operate in the same fashion as many native american tribes,. If this type of behavior is consistent, then it only stands to reason that yes it is indeed possible, So are Dogman sightings are really Sasquatch wearing Wolf mask or skins from it's conquered prey? and wouldn't it make more anatomical sense?
