Ooh, I just love this… whenever new pieces of the puzzle are found I get a thrill.

You simply must know that there were at least as many species of all forms of life around back then as there are now… and due to the conditions present in those days potentially a lot more than exist today … the scarcity is simply because fossilization is not a common occurrence. Not in the least.

Alabama dead deer video sparks debate on panthers, Bigfoot

Posted Dec 20, 2019

By Tribune Media Services

The Deep South is allegedly home to all manner of mythical creatures, so Alabama officials threw gas on a fire Wednesday when they posted video of a dead deer hidden under a pile of leaves and sticks.

A mysterious predator had cleverly tried to covered its “prize” for leisure snacking, and the Alabama Wildlife and Freshwater Fisheries Division asked the public to guess which predator had done it.

What followed was pure social media madness.

A few people suggested the 90-second video was a setup, but most took it very, very seriously.

Within four hours, it had been viewed 5,000 times and ignited a fiery debate that started with bears vs. mountain lions, then took sharp turn into urban legend territory.

It continued Thursday, even after state officials said it was likely a bobcat that did it, something state biologists described as “classic bobcat behavior.”

“I am not sure a Bobcat can take a deer, could this be a bear?” Jim Deal asked on the state’s Facebook page.

“No way a bobcat could do this,” Mike Scott added.

The possibility of a Bigfoot attack came up, along a mountain lionbear and multiple references to a mysterious “black cat” that conspiracy theorists insist lives in the state undetected. Some even submitted grainy photos as proof it.

“Ur an idiot if u don’t believe in black panthers in Alabama,” insisted someone named JD.

“They most definitely are. I believe you,” responded Bobbie Wilhite.

Panthers, mountain lions and cougars do not live in Alabama, state officials insisted in response to such comments.

However, the South does have bobcats, a 40-pound carnivore that is considered solitary and secretive, according to OutdoorAlabama.com, a state website.

“They are an elusive animal to see even where populations are high,” the site says. “Seldom seen during the daylight hours, bobcats do most of their hunting at night … They will occasionally feed on deer, mostly carrion, during the deer hunting season.”

Here’s a snip from an article:

PUBLISHED: December 9, 2009 at 11:01:00 pm | UPDATED: November 13, 2015 at 2:07:12 am

Tim Kedrowski and his sons, Peter and Casey, are not pushovers for Bigfoot stories, but a frame on a game trail camera set up on their hunting land north of Remer has left them in a quandary.

“To us, it’s very hard because we lean toward the skeptical type,” Kedrowski said in a telephone interview from his Rice, Minn., home.

But after checking with neighbors and any other hunters who might have been walking through the dense woods at 7:20 p.m. on the rainy night of Oct. 24, he said they couldn’t imagine what else the image could be. Tim said he considered ideas from a bear to a bow hunter in a fuzzy suit. But the arm and hand couldn’t be a bear’s, or its upright gait. And there is no evidence in the photo of a bow or flashlight a hunter might be using to track a wounded deer.

The Kedrowskis checked the Minnesota Bigfoot Web site and came up with the names of Don Sherman and Bob Olson, the Northern Minnesota Bigfoot Research Team.

Ah! Lesha – run!
Well? Where is he? Wait, wait, shoot-shoot-shoot-shoot, get closer!

Somehow, (Rense, maybe? Facefart?), earlier today, I think, I got word of this Coast to Coast piece on this video. It seems sufficiently interesting… critter seems pretty plausible. Humans seem pretty scared. But, hey, who knows. Just from what I see, though, body shape, behavior and the like, I think it may well be real.

Watch: Bigfoot Chases Car in Russia?
December 09, 2019
By Tim Binnall

A puzzling piece of footage from Russia seems to show a large, hairy bipedal creature chasing after a car, and a cryptozoologist in the country believes that the oddity could have been a Bigfoot. The strange encounter reportedly occurred back in 2016, but the video of the unsettling sighting only appeared online earlier this year. Months later, it finally caught the attention of the media in Russia, who recently spoke to Igor Burtsev of the International Center for Homology about his investigation into the case.

The cryptozoologist revealed that the video had a profound effect on him as, after seeing it, he “lost both peace and sleep.” In the footage, a trio of girls and a man can be heard observing something coming towards their car. One of the girls screams “Lesha, close the window,” while another terrified passenger exclaims “he’s coming! he’s running!” Although the witnesses chose to remain anonymous, Russian media reports that they did meet with Burtsev to recount their experience.

For his part, the researcher indicated that he fastidiously studied the footage frame-by-frame and is quite convinced that the creature that chased after the car was, indeed, a Bigfoot. “This, I think, is the second such case in the world,” he marveled, “so convincing. Because it is clear that this creature is running.” Based on his close examination of the footage, Burtev posited that it was likely a female Sasquatch due to the shape of the creature’s upper torso.

Burstev also explained that a visit to the area where the sighting occurred seemed to bear signs that there were Bigfoot in the area, despite the video being recorded years earlier. “When we went to the forest, we saw broken branches,” he reported, “and completely fresh creases,” which we presume to mean footprints. Burstev went on to muse that “in local terms, this is ‘shurale,’ and in Russian it is called the goblin, and in scientific terms, it is a hominoid. Well, before, very actively called Yeti, Bigfoot, but these are all the names of the same creature.”

Showing the kind of ‘balanced’ approach practiced by the mainstream media in America, the Russian coverage of the case has also included the requisite skeptical stance on the video via a university biologist who dismissed the footage. “There is no evidence. No serious zoological and anthropological journal has articles that confirm the existence of this animal,” the academic declared, “there is nothing, this is mythology.” With that in mind, what’s your take on the weird footage? Let us know at the Coast to Coast AM Facebook page.

As they say, decide for yourself.

As I said, I kinda like it.

Naval Officials Can’t Explain What They Are Encountering In The Arctic?

Unexplained Mysteries
Oct 15, 2019

Naval officials can’t explain what they are encountering in the Arctic. Today, we take a look at what Navy officials are encountering in the Arctic. Antarctica has always been at the center of a wide number of different mysteries. What’s interesting is that it appears Japan is no stranger to these theories and have been at the center of rumors surrounding the icy continent. It appears that over the past few years, stories of strange humanoid creatures living in Antarctica have slowly been circulating all around Japan.

According to the Japanese whale industry, many crew members aboard so called whale research ships have reported seeing strange humanoid creatures on the continent.

Thank you for watching! Thank you to CO.AG for the background music!

I’ve certainly heard of the Ningen, from many moons ago, actually, but the stories are never any more detailed than in this well-done video and are subsequently just stories.

I guess there are no sufficiently funded researchers around to go on serious missions in search of them.

Ah, well, someday, maybe we’ll know.

143 New Nazca Lines Discovered in Peru with the help of A.I. Technology | Ancient Architects

Ancient Architects
Nov 18, 2019

Huge thanks to Michael Wolf for alerting me about this story!

A team of Japanese researchers from Yamagata University and IBM Research have discovered an incredible 143 stunning geoglyphs, etched into the desert in southern Peru around the enigmatic Nazca Lines.

It is yet another example of how technology is assisting archaeology because a number of images were found using state-of-the-art AI technology developed by IBM, finds that were then confirmed with an on-site investigations.

The geoglyphs include humans, birds, camels, cats and other animals and were found between 2016 and 2018. They were identified through fieldwork and analysing high-resolution 3D data and aerial photography. Incredibly, one geoglyph in particular was solely discovered with AI technology, without the aid of humans, making it the first geoglyph discovered by an AI.

Back in April 2018 I reported in a video that Peruvian archaeologists in the Palpa province of Peru had discovered more than 50 new geoglyphs (youtu.be/gpkc7-9_604) so this new discovery by the Japanese team builds on the ever-expanding line of study.

Watch this video to learn more and please Like, Subscribe and Comment below!

All images are taken from Yamagata University. Please visit www.yamagata-u.ac.jp/en/infor… for full detailed information on the new discoveries.

This is a pleasant bit of news, I must say. I love it when new pieces of the puzzle are discovered!

Well, like the videomaker, this class of cryptid reports is far and away my favorite.

I had not heard much from Texas as opposed to Colorado and Wyoming, but, that is really down to my physical and mental conditions causing a whole lot of nothing to take place. The creator is not up on the latest in dinosaur knowledge and he keeps calling them T-Rex, which is kind of annoying, as they are obviously not.

Truth be told, the majority of dinosaurs of all types were small, like most of the subjects of these videos, 2 or 3 feet tall.

Let us forgive him his sins and just enjoy the wonderful collection of stories he has compiled along with some very fine research into these critters, quite a few of which are new to me.

Some good stuff here, folks and Gol dang it, if I had the ability I would be down there with a tonne of recording devices for as long as it took to get some fine stuff.

Highly recommended!

 

 

Dobhar-chú

#20 –  Dobhar-chú

The Dobhar-chú is a vicious lake cryptid of Irish folklore. Roughly translated as “water hound” is described as being half-dog, half-fish, or as something resembling a very large otter, up to two metres in length. The creature is said to be extremely aggressive and capable of killing humans. There even exists a grave in Conwall cemetary in County Leitrim, Ireland of a woman supposedly killed by the Dobhar-chú, with a carving of the creature featured on her headstone.

morgawr

#22 – Morgawr

Morgawr, meaning “sea giant” in Cornish, is a sea monster purported to live in the waters around Falmouth Bay in Cornwall, England. The first sightings of the creature that came to prominence were in the mid-1970s, however stories of a large sea monster in the area may date back nearly a hundred years prior to that. Reports of Morgawr describe it as a very large creature, up to eighteen metres in length, and possibly resembling an extinct marine animal such as plesiosaurus or basilosaurus.

Navy Pilot sees “dark mass” take torpedo……

Navy Pilot David Fravor claimed on Oct. 5th that a mystery “dark mass” emerged from the ocean and swallowed a torpedo whole. He also claims another Navy Pilot had something like this happen off the coast of Puerto Rico in the 1990’s.

He described what happened:

As they hoist the BQM [torpedo] up, he’s looking at this thing going, ‘What the hell is that?’ And then it just goes back down underwater. “Once they pull the kid and the BQM out of the water, this object descends back into the depths.” While the other pilot thought the incident was strange, indicating some skepticism, the same thing happened a few months later, Fravor claimed. “He’s out picking up a torpedo, they hook the diver up on the winch, and as they’re lowering him down, he sees this big mass,” Fravor said. “He goes, ‘It’s not a submarine,’ he’s seen submarines before, once you’ve seen a submarine you can’t confuse it with something else.” “This big object, kind of circular, is coming up from the depths and he starts screaming through the intercom system to tell them to pull the diver up, and the diver’s only a few feet from the water,” he added. “They reverse the winch and the diver’s thinking: ‘What the hell is going on?’ And all of a sudden he said the torpedo just got sucked down underwater, and the object just descended back down into the depths.”

Fravor said the torpedo was never recovered and was adamant the torpedo didn’t sink and was “sucked down.”
Fravor had an encounter with a ufo while with the USS Nimitz in 2004, and he described the object he saw as “something not from this world.”

Fravor said the object was flying around a patch of white water in the ocean below. “A white Tic Tac, about the same size as a Hornet, 40 feet long with no wings,” Fravor described. “Just hanging close to the water.” “As I get closer, as my nose is starting to pull back up, it accelerates and it’s gone,” he said. “Faster than I’d ever seen anything in my life. We turn around, say let’s go see what’s in the water and there’s nothing. Just blue water.” “I don’t think I was a nut-job as an officer in the Navy. I wasn’t drunk, I don’t do drugs. I got a good night’s rest, it was a clear day,” he said. “I think someone should have looked into it. Having talked to some of the other folks, it’s a big frustration that it’s coming out now and wasn’t discussed back in 2004.” While Fravor is often ridiculed for his theories, the U.S. Navy recently admitted that a series of UFO videos are real.

Fravor talks about this encounter at the 54:38 mark of the video:

Note: on the last episode of the great show called “Contact” on Discovery and the Science Channel they talked about USOs, and it was presented in the last episode that the Navy actually has underwater listening posts stationed around the world to monitor for USOs.

Holy Cow! I would give anything to see this. I have felt for a long time after reading decades of sighting reports that there is some sort of lifeform of a highly advanced nature that is extant in the depths of our oceans. After all that data input it is pretty difficult to deny.

It is one of the most fascinating mysteries that I have encountered. May we someday see video and more information.

plesiosaur

A Drawing from Captain Marvin McCamis’ description of an unidentified animal he reported seeing from inside the “Alvin” Mini-Submarine in the Atlantic Ocean. The sighting was reported to have occurred while he was inspecting submarine cables on July 20, 1965.

Wow! Look at that!

Now … what does that critter look like to you, eh? Yeah! A plesiosaur!

And it’s twice the length of the sub!

Too cool. Way too cool.

Here are Karl’s thoughts…

Karl Shuker Here’s what I wrote about it in my 2016 book Still In Search Of Prehistoric Survivors:

“Yet another very valuable sighting of a long-neck seen in full while underwater took place in or around July 1965 (not 1969, as erroneously stated in some publications and websites). This was when the U.S. research submarine Alvin, captained by Bill Rainnie and piloted by Marvin McCamis, was submerged at a depth of almost 1 mile in the Tongue of the Ocean off the Bahamas, surveying the underwater listening array Artemis. Suddenly, they spied an extraordinary creature, which possessed a long neck, a somewhat snake-like head, and two sets of flippers that propelled its thick body. Before the submarine’s cameras could be activated, however, the creature swiftly ascended, swam away, and was not seen by them again. Nevertheless, in this particular case the sighting was duly entered into the craft’s log, and both men not only were experienced submarine observers, with hundreds of dives to their credit, but also went on to receive a number of commendations for expertise and bravery in their field, thus cementing their status as persons whose word could be trusted as being reliable and credible.

Moreover, American cryptozoologist Scott Mardis corresponded with McCamis regarding this remarkable sighting (which is how its correct year was confirmed) prior to McCamis’s death in 2004, and sent him a number of illustrations, including plesiosaur reconstructions. In reply, McCamis stated that these resembled the mystery beast that he and Rainnie had seen on that eventful occasion back in 1965. Having observed this creature in its entirety underwater (as opposed to a mere head-and-neck surface sighting), and as their description of its morphology is undeniably very reminiscent of a plesiosaur, their report remains one of the most compelling ones in favour of the reality of a marine cryptid potentially allied to such creatures.”

Scott Mardis Karl Shuker All true. McCamis even sent me a Christmas card.

Also in the comments, Scott Mardis posted this graphic:

You can hear the relevant portion of the interview, where she expresses her conviction that an undiscovered species of ape exists in North America, at this link: is.gd/CekH33 (above)

Dr. Jane Goodall Speaks About Bigfoot-PGF Normal Speed

Oct 7, 2006

Here’s the radio call-in show in which Dr. Jane Goodall has a little something to say about Bigfoot. Listen carefully to what Dr. Goodall says, she is one of the world’s leading authorities on primates.

Dr. Jane Goodall being interviewed by Ira Flatow, National Public Radio’s “Science Friday,” September 27, 2002.

The color copy of the Patterson Footage that I found on the ‘net obviously has something wrong with it. It plays too fast. I believe the originator of that video clip may have assumed that the film was shot in 24fps (instead of the 16fps that it was probably shot in), resulting in the video being played 1/3 faster than natural speed. This creates an unrealistic motion in the creature’s gait. I found that very annoying so I tried to fix it in this video. I included the MK Davis ‘walking with bigfoot’ enhancement footage, also.

Davis is a real disappointment and has done quite a bit more harm than good to the field.

Dr. Goodall, on the other hand, is a personal hero and exemplifies what it is to be a scientist and a field researcher. I would bet a million bucks that she could do the same with Sasquatch as she has done with gorillas.

The creature is absolutely real and people need to come to terms with that. It is not at all an exotic concept and is an everyday world-wide occurrence in the forests of this planet.

Peace.

Be well.
