Are large wolf-like creatures stalking around the neighborhoods of Palm Springs? Jim Flood thinks so, and he’s got the bite marks to prove it.
The Tahquitz Creek resident awoke last Sunday morning to find the cover on his prized BMW 321i had become dislodged during the night, but what he discovered underneath the cover that really shocked him.
The front left tire well had been completely damaged by what he could only describe as bite marks. Adding to Flood’s panic, he discovered large paw prints across the sand to where the car had been parked o the front lawn.
Amazingly, a nearby neighbor told Flood he had spotted two large animals “bigger than coyotes,” stalking the neighborhood that very night. This prompted Flood to report the damage and the sighting to the local police who called the instance a “suspicious circumstance.”
There are many theories being thrown around about what kind of creature might have caused such damage to Jim Flood’s vehicle. Some believe the Chupacabra took Jim’s BMW for a chew toy, others that giant wolf-like creatures are stalking the night.
Animal wildlife ecologist Michael Vamstad from the Joshua Tree National Park had this to add:
“I can’t think of a reason why a dog or a coyote or a wolf would bite any kind of metallic object like a BMW,” he told The Desert Sun. “We don’t even have wolves in the state of California.”
Though he might not have been ready to settle on the popular Chupacabra theory, Vamstad was quick to add that what might be seeing is a “coyote-looking German Shepherd”.
There have been recent reports of local cats going missing, which only adds to the mystery..
No news if the creature has been spotted since the attack on Jim Floods car, but it’s a good chance that if there is another sighting the whole neighborhood will be howling!
