Shunka Warakin

From EverybodyWiki Bios & Wiki

The shunka warakin (also shunka warak'in) is an animal mentioned in American folklore that is said to resemble a wolf, a hyena, or both.

An animal shot in 1896 by Israel Ammon Hutchins on what is now the Sun Ranch in Montana[1] has been suggested by Coleman as an example of this mysterious creature. Joseph Sherwood, a taxidermist, acquired it from Hutchins, mounted it, and put it on display in his combination general store-museum in Henry's Lake, Idaho. Sherwood named the beast "Ringdocus". This stuffed trophy, the only piece of physical evidence, was never examined by qualified scientists and went missing for some time, before it was rediscovered in December 2007.[2]
