Utah - Bulletproof Wolf. “50 States of Freaky!” Vol. 44

Utah - Bulletproof Wolf. “50 States of Freaky!” Vol. 44

Be sure you’re all caught up with this series! “50 States of Freaky”


A bulletproof wolf lives near your home and you’re trying to kill it? That’s not what you do! You catch it, tame it and then become the most bad-ass pet owner in the world! It’s like a living video game character that has regenerating health! At this point you’re probably wondering what the hell I’m talking about. Well you’re about to find out! So let’s trot our way on over to central Utah. There’s a story that tells of a family who moved to a ranch and encountered a bulletproof wolf. A family named the Gormans had just moved their furniture into their new home when they saw something in the pasture. A large wolf was cautiously making it’s way over to the family. To everyone’s surprise, the wolf began acting as if it were part of the family. The began petting it. After a few minutes passed, the wolf got up and trotted over to corral and grabbed a calf by the snout, trying to pull it through the bars. Gorman and his father began to hit the wolf with sticks in order to get it to let the calf go, but it didn’t work. Gorman ran over to the truck and grabbed his .375 Magnum (time to go all Malory Archer on it’s ass) and proceeded to shoot the wolf at point-blank range. Shockingly, the wolf didn’t flinch at all. Shooting the wolf again, it finally let go of the calf and just looked at the family. Gorman shot the wolf two more times before it casually began to walk away. It didn’t show any signs of injury, not even a drop of blood. The fifth shot, this time with a hunting rifle, caused a clump of fur and flesh to fall off the wolf. The wolf disappeared into the muddy thicket after being shot for a sixth time. Gorman and his father tracked the animal for an hour before the tracks suddenly stopped as if it had disappeared into thin air. Returning back to the corral, Gorman examined the chunk of flesh and noticed it looked and smelled rotten. Asking neighbors, nobody knew of any large, tamed wolves in the area. A few weeks later, Mrs. Gorman encountered a wolf so large that it’s back was parallel with the top of her window. The wolf was standing by her car and was accompanied by a dog-like creature that she couldn’t identify. For the next two years, the Gormans and neighbors continued to have strange sightings and experiences.

Well now we know where Capcom got the idea for the Fenrir in Resident Evil: Revelations. I’m kind of torn on whether to believe this or not. On one hand, it’s sounds pretty crazy, but not crazy enough to be unbelievable. Then on the other hand, the lack of info such as what town this happened in and a date lead me to believe this is just an urban legend. I think overall I’m gonna say this is just some kind of urban legend/creepy pasta, only because the thought of a large zombie-like wolf walking around is just a bit to far fetched for me. But, there are many strange things out in the world, and a bulletproof is surprisingly not as far fetched as it could be. So what do you think? Did this family really encounter the Terminator of wolves, or is this just a made-up local legend?
