Nalusa Falaya

devilNalusa Falaya is an evil and devious creature from the myths of the Choctaw Native Americans. They were said to have a human body with sharp spines protruding from their back, their body covered with hair and their heads with small eyes and pointed ears. The Nalusa Falay adults would hide in the swamps and call to travelers, when their victim came close, the Nalusa Falaya would jump out and scare their victim unconscious.

Then they would jump on the unconscious victim and consume them. The Choctaw elders would warn the tribe not to go out at night and to travel in groups when the Nalusa Falaya were near.

The first known encounter of the Michigan Dogman occurred in 1887 in Wexford County, when two lumberjacks saw a creature which they described as having a man’s body and a dog’s head. It has also been spotted many times in the Upper Peninsula by locals.

In 1938 in Paris, Michigan, Robert Fortney was attacked by five wild dogs and said that one of the five walked on two legs. Reports of similar creatures also came from Allegan County in the 1950s, and in Manistee and Cross Village in 1967.

    I really really wish we could delete the word “Dogman” from the english language, it sounds like something you’d see in a Creature Double Feature from a 1950’s Drive-In Theater, and therefore makes it harder to digest to the average fence-sitting skeptic.

    Kind of like how a Bigfoot organization is run by someone named “Moneymaker” and his evil henchmen “Bobo”. Yeah, people will take that seriously, sure. That’s a PR Powerhouse right there! *sarcasm*

      Whenever I get my Jalapeño Cheese Bread from Little Caesers, man the BigFarts come calling. Something about the cheese and Jalapeños they seem to love. I’m pretty sure they’re at the windows all the time too, because when I smell them BigFarts, the windows always fog up. They can be silent, or they can sound like a bulldozer, but they are always always deadly.

      Alright I’m done. I’m a 33 year old man that still makes poop jokes, what of it?

    But how in the world do you mention in casual company with friends that you believe in something called Dogman that is really a werewolf kind of creature? I am sure some would think you had mental issues.

    I think THE SNALLYGASTER is worse than anything. Combine that with the Mountain Monsters Army Of 400lbs Negligent Firearms Dischargers and you’ve got the least credible venture on the planet.

    Wow, that’s an amazing coincidence. Because Bear was on Dogman Encounters this last Friday and was talking to Vic Cundiff about the Nalusa Falaya because of Bear’s native heritage. Very fascinating stuff, I love hearing native folklore and stories because I honestly 100% believe they have bases in fact

    Hi think Shannon would agree with me: THAT IS A BIG NO for me!!! That photo is so creepy. I know I would be unconscious if that jumped out at me. Good thing they are east of the Mississippi. I’ll stick to the Paddy here in Washington, thankyouverymuch.

    Ya ya call it what ya will. But these bad boys are out there. And not just in Mich. Wi. Mn. There in N.E.S.W. U.S. These creatures roam in Canada. And other countries. .. They are as real as squatch.. They do travel for food it seems and seem to be more terrifying in most ways. Noted by the EVIL in there EYES. FAR to many account a have been made by people over many many years to dismiss false report or fake witnesses.. remember if one in ten are truthful… it’s real.. sleep well in your tent tonight.

    I really don’t think these creatures would purposely jump out to scare their victims unconscious. I think that would happen simply because they jumped out. I would have a heart attach for sure. If they were going to consume me I would want to be dead before I hit the ground anyway..
