WASHINGTON -- A werewolf is on the loose in Woodbridge, or is it?
Police officers received a call Monday around 10:05 p.m. from a neighbor who reported seeing a suspicious creature roaming the area of Colchester Road and Randall Drive, InsideNova reports.
"A coyote, or a werewolf," Prince William County police spokesman Jonathan Perok told InsideNova.
Officers searched the surrounding woods, but didn't find anything.
It would seem that the Woodbridge werewolf is not the only lunar-challenged creature to visit Virginia.
Sightings have also been reported in Henrico County, near the Confederate Hills Recreation Center. A blog dedicated to all things werewolf says the sightings could be a hoax, given their proximity to a rec center, or there could be another likely explanation: bigfoot.
