One of the otherworldly attributes assigned to the Dogman in many encounters, is their seeming invulnerability to even a firestorm of bullets. In many cases, these bullets were fired from the weapons of experienced hunters and woodsmen, whom are all-too-familiar with their weapon’s capabilities and damage potential. Yet, after taking fire from these high-powered rifles, there seems to be little to no effect, other than in a few cases the target is knocked-down only to rebound and make a fleet-footed retreat.
There is no “natural-animal” on the American continent that can take a relative close-range round from the weakest of “hunting-rifles” and not present immediate, and obvious indications of trauma. Yet this is exactly what is reported in many cryptid meets firearm encounters, Dogman and Sasquatch alike. This peculiarity would seem to lead to a preternatural conclusion.
Interestingly, the concept of being bulletproof is not unknown in the realm of esoteric knowledge. One such instance is recounted in the annals of White Bull, the nephew of the legendary Lakota War Chief, Sitting Bull. While lesser known than his uncle, White Bull was a fierce warrior in his own right. He was present at the battle of Little Bighorn, and was purported as being the man who killed General Custer that fateful summer day.
White Bull’s stated the bulletproofing ritual was an intricate process conducted by his tribe’s “Medicine-Man”, and while he goes into some detail of the steps in his recounting, the end result was much like that which is seen in many firearm vs. cryptid accounts. Upon the rituals conclusion, to test its effectiveness, he and his fellow participants would take time about firing his pistol ( a pistol he asserts had brought down many buffalo) at one another at close range. While the impact would knock them off their feet, and would leave tremendous bruising, their skin would remain intact, no blood was drawn.
If we taken at his word, this bulletproofing ritual would seem to lend credence to the “skinwalker” theory as an explanation to the upright canine enigma.
