Ferals are dog-like creatures in Silent Hill: Homecoming. They are found roaming the streets of Silent Hill and Sheperd's Glen. They represent the hunting hobbies of Alex Sheperd's father, Adam, where he was seen skinning his kills. Since Adam admitted to treating his dog with more respect than Alex, they may also represent Alex's anger towards his mistreatment.
Ferals are skinless, heavily muscled canines with fresh blood dripping from their bodies. As large dogs, they are very powerful indeed. A strange feature of their heads is the fact that they have no apparent eyes or ears.
- A similar creature, the skinned dog, appears in the Silent Hill comic, Paint it Black. It is possible this was the inspiration for the Feral.
