Every state has their fair share of creepy stories that only the locals know. Alaska is no different.

When you are talking about spooky stories and legends, it should come as no surprise that Alaska has its fair share. The wide open spaces, low population base, and plenty of wilderness almost breed these kinds of stories. Check out five of them below.

1

The Butcher Baker

This first one isn't a legend. It's a true story about one of the worst serial killers in the country. Robert Hansen terrorized Alaskan women from 1971 to 1983. He raped and killed at least 17 and could have had more than 30 victims. If rape and murder weren't enough, he would also fly the women to the Alaskan wilderness in his private plane, then dump them, and hunt them.

2

The Alaskan Saberwolf

This is very much a legend that has quite a massive following. The Alaskan Saberwolf is supposed to be a remnant of prehistoric giant wolves. The Saberwolf is said to have killed dozens of people by biting their heads off. At least one television crew has said they came within feet of being its next victims.
