After the lobo lady escaped with the assistance of her wolf pack, no additional makes an attempt to seize the lady have been made. Nevertheless, the lobo lady was nonetheless sighted every now and then. And it could be at this level that the sightings would tackle a extra fantastical, some may even say supernatural, nature. A surveying social gathering on the lookout for an alternate path to El Paso have been using down the Rio Grande in 1852 after they sighted the lobo girl. This time, she was suckling two wolf cubs. When she noticed the boys, she grabbed the cubs and sprinted into the wilderness at such a speedy gait that not even the horsemen may comply with her. One model of the account, presumably from a Texas folklore assortment printed in 1936, said, “Right away she was upon her toes, a whelp beneath every arm, dashing into the breaks at a price no horse may comply with.” Into the 1860s, sightings turned rare, although troopers at Camp Hudson claimed they may hear her inhuman howls at midnight of night time.
Although it seems like folklore, the saga of the lobo girl of Satan’s River could possibly be true, as tales from antiquity of orphaned youngsters being raised by wolves are fairly widespread. And although she was by no means actually a werewolf, the lobo girl did ultimately turn into a ghost.
As late as 1974, whereas out trying to find wild pigs — or javelinas as they’re identified — a hunter named Jim Marshall and two mates sighted the lobo girl lengthy after she ought to have been lifeless. They have been camped alongside Satan’s River and had been trying to find 4 days. That night time, when one of many males went to assemble some firewood, he returned to camp with a face as white as demise. Marshall requested his buddy what he had seen, and he replied that it could be higher in the event that they noticed it for themselves. The 2 males adopted their buddy down a path to the water’s edge as he described the unusual apparition he had seen, which seemed like a younger lady. Upon reaching the spot, the apparition was nonetheless there. One of many males was quoted within the guide “Ghosts of the Previous West” by Earl Murray in 1988, saying, “The one method I can describe it’s that it gave the impression to be a lady, an actual skinny lady, with lengthy hair and wild eyes. Even within the darkness we may see her. It was like she was in a haze, a type of foggy mist, standing there partly bent over, digging into an ant mound. All of the sudden no matter we have been seeing was gone. I don’t know if it vanished or simply moved shortly into the comb.”
Supposedly, the three males returned to camp, packed up their issues, and left as fast as they may.
