The Mutant Canine, also known as the Turner Beast, was a large canine creature that was hit by a car in Turner, Maine in August 16th, 2006. Before its death, it had reportedly been responsible for the deaths of many local animals.
The creature has been described as a husky-looking wolf with bulky shoulders, bulging eyes, a flat snout, short mangled ears, and a bushy tail.
There are several explanations as to what the creature could be. Theories include:
- A wolf-dog hybrid (confirmed)
- Later DNA testing of the animal in the pictures revealed it to be a wolf-dog hybrid.
