Dangerous wolf-like 'animal' kills near Durham

The lonely and lovely British countryside near Durham is the scene of grisly attacks. The Newcastle Sun covers the story:

Mr Bell, however, reckons the killing method used suggests it was not a big cat that was responsible but a wolverine, a creature feared by hunters the world over.

The police sergeant said: "We have had big cat sightings at Iverston, but cats never kill two prey at the same time and pumas certainly don't leave their prey just lying there. They always carry them off.

"We have evidence that wolverines are loose in this country. A few years ago the National Farmers' Union was advising farmers in Wales that there were at least two wolverines in the area and about five years ago Northumbria Police came to me about some dead lambs with big bitemarks on top of their heads.

A wolverine or a werewolf?

Given that lambs are the main target, another possible explanation would be the chupacabra

Larry, the chupacabra is in Mexico and the southwestern United States. Even with the failure to secure aircraft properly by the Orwellian Department of Homeland Security, I can't see a chupacabra getting on a plane and flying to England to commit sheep murders.
