"Eyes of the Howler" Tonight

On "Navajo Cops" on National Geographic Channel tonight, they have an episode entitled "Eyes of the Howler." Navajo Police Officers mount a new hunt for The Howler a mysterious creature believed to have killed dogs and livestock. Some of the elders in the community suspect it might be a Skinwalker, while others insist that its the Navajo version of Bigfoot. As they sweep through a remote canyon, the heavily-armed cops actually hear the chilling sound caught on tape and they think its coming from a cave high in the cliffs. 

Have they finally tracked down the elusive Howler? I am not missing this one!


  1. I am ON THIS.
    Hopefully it's on before I get narcoleptic

  2. I've been looking forward to this. They are claiming to have some pretty compelling evidence!

  3. I saw the show last night - all I can say is "wow", the evidence was/is compelling! There is no way I could pin down what that "howl" or eerie "whoop" sounded like - somewhat human like, but definitely not a coyote/wolf, elk, or bear! And when the cameraman zoomed in from a distance on the entrance to the cave in question, there was definitely a set of eys reflecting back, as if to know its being watched. Just happen to stuble upon this show last night and am now kicking myself for not recording it!

    1. That was pretty cool. I thought it looked like a wildcat's eyes. I wish they had inspected the whole cave. The howl to me sounded like a coyote perhaps, but I was surprised it wasn't met with a pack's howls.

    2. As for the eyes, I didn't get a sense of which color they were. I only say this because I know that many animals reflect different colors based on sexes - male deer (bucks) reflect orange/redish eyes at night, while females (doe's) reflect greenish/yellow. This creature reflected kind of a cold silver/yellow color. The "howl" was more difficult for me to decipher as it was obviously loud (came from a very far distance) and was long in its delivery. It was high in tone, but not quick, like a coyote "yip, yip"... This show looked like the read deal, the Navojo hunters/patrolmen looked concerned as they approached the cave, and when they climbed up the rocks, could smell foul odors as they got closer. Once, the hunter (the brave one) got close to the cave entrance (with rifle at the ready) it looked like there was nothing there. Again, camera at a distance, it was hard to tell how far the cave went back, and where the creature went... Dam, I want to see this show again!
