According to new report by Cryptozoology News, a former state trooper as become quite friendly with a clan (gaggle? group?) of Sasquatches. He feeds them and says they have a language, which “sound[s] similar to Native American and Asian mix.”

via Cryptozoology News:

The man, who provided a full name but chose to remain anonymous, told Cryptozoology News that the encounters have been happening since 2009 in a remote area in the North Cascades.

“Sometimes it is just 5 to 10 minutes, other times they stay for hours,” he said. “I leave them food and they visit,” he continued.

From apples to carrots, to beef jerky, cookies and candy bars, the ex-law enforcement officer claims the creatures eat it all and leave him alone.

The man says he was looking for an old mine in the mountains the first time he came across the alleged beings in 2009.

What’s up with Texans and weird Bigfoot stories?

via Cryptozoology News:

Texas — A man claims he had multiple encounters with a “Bigfoot” creature in Marion County.

Richard, who didn’t provide a last name, said he was at his house on the Big Cypress Bayou when the events allegedly took place at 10.30 p.m. about four decades ago.

“I had a house on top of the hill by Lake O’ the Pines. I was out the backdoor smoking a cigarette,” he said last month on a 20-minute call to Nite Callers Bigfoot Radio, a radio podcast with over four years of experience covering “Sasquatch and other related mysterious subjects”.

Suddenly, the eyewitness said, he noticed a strange shape next to an oak tree.

“I saw something on the edge of the tree line. I could see it from the porch’s light.”

Curious and decided to find out what the silhouette was, Richard reportedly put out his smoke and walked out of the driveway to try to interact with the animal.

The woman from Texas, Brenda, claims (via Cryptozoology News):

“We didn’t know what was going on until just a few years ago. At first, we found the house that they were living in. My husband and I didn’t know what it was, and he kind of joked at me about it… at that time we didn’t realize it was a Bigfoot. Since then, our property had a fire, it burned down, so we moved a mile and a half from where we knew they were into another house. Little did we know that we were just coming into a family of them,” she told Coast to Coast guest host Dave Schrader late Friday in an open-line phone call made to the nightly radio show.

“They throw rocks on the house, I hear them talking. People thought I was crazy, but I know what I heard.

Bigfoot Is Going Public

Author: CryptoTom (CC)

Yes, you read that right, you can now invest in a Bigfoot IPO (Initial Public Offering), per the Wall Street Journal:

Startups are famous for setting big, hairy goals. Carmine “Tom” Biscardi wants to catch Sasquatch—and is planning an initial public offering to fund the hunt.

Mr. Biscardi and his partners hope to raise as much as $3 million by selling stock in Bigfoot Project Investments. They plan to spend the money making movies and selling DVDs, but are also budgeting $113,805 a year for expeditions to find the beast. Among the company’s goals, according to its filings with the Securities and Exchange Commission: “capture the creature known as Bigfoot.”

Investment advisers caution that this IPO may not be for everyone. For starters, it involves DVDs, a dying technology, said Kathy Boyle, president at Chapin Hill Advisors. Then there is the Sasquatch issue. She reckons only true believers would be interested in such a speculative venture.

Monsters in America: A Cryptozoological Map of the United States

hog_island_press_monsters_in_america

Philly based Hog Island Press has created this awesome map of various monsters allegedly found across the continental US.

Monsters in America: A Cryptozoological Map of the United States is possibly the first of its kind – a snapshot of American cryptozoology that brings together the Jersey Devil, Bigfoot, Mothman, Chupacabra, Shunka Warakin, Caddy, the Honey Island Swamp Monster and many more cryptids on one hand-drawn, hand-screened map.

Loren Coleman, the Director of the International Cryptozoology Museum, had this to say: “The cryptid-filled, cartographically accurate Monsters in America: A Cryptozoological Map of the United States should be on the walls of every museum, library, and researcher’s office interested in the science of as-yet-to-be-discovered animals. Hog Island Press has produced an informative, affordable, high quality collectible, which also serves as an educational tool useful for your next road trip, a future research trek, or everyday bibliographic study. There is not a fake on the map.

Study: Americans are as likely to believe in Bigfoot as in the big bang theory

By JD Hancock (cc by 2.0)

By JD Hancock (cc by 2.0)

via The Washington Post:

Human beings are, in general, a superstitious lot. Our tendency to see patterns where they don’t exist, and to falsely apply cause to effect, may have helped keep us alive back when we were little more than a band of frightened critters scurrying about the savanna. Those tendencies linger to the present day, reflected in our stubborn belief in completely irrational things: Rabbit’s feet. Horoscopes. A return to the gold standard.

The Chapman University Survey on American Fears, a comprehensive study of the fears, phobias and irrational beliefs of the American people, was just released this week and contains an interesting section on belief in the paranormal. The results are drawn from a nationally-representative sample of 2,500 American adults.

It finds that belief in certain paranormal phenomenon – like influencing the world with physical thought, and foretelling the future with dreams – are fairly widespread.

White Bigfoot Sighting in Maine

via Mysterious Universe:

What is it about Maine that seems to attract white Bigfoots, or at least reported sighting of them? Are they fans of lobsters and whale watching?

Recently in Eddington, Maine, a boy (name not given) told Bill Brock and AJ Marston, members of the cryptid research organization Team Rogue, that he saw a big white creature running into the woods near his family’s home.

I was walking and then…I hear something run over there. I look up and then there is something big, white and it runs right into the woods…and it’s just gone.

The boy’s family didn’t see the creature but reported finding a deer leg that “had just been ripped off, and was just sitting there.”

We’re back in action with the polls this week. In celebration of Halloween, I’ve decided to run a poll on everyone’s favorite cryptids. The list of cryptids is huge, so I tried to pick the most popular and most talked about. The latest poll on the “Most Heinous Torture Device/Method” garnered 847 votes.

Favorite Cryptid:

Kraken

Kraken is a legendary sea monster of giant proportions that is said to dwell off the coasts of Norway and Greenland. The legend may have originated from sightings of giant squid that are estimated to grow to 13–15 m (40–50 ft) in length, including the tentacles. The sheer size and fearsome appearance attributed to the kraken have made it a common ocean-dwelling monster in various fictional works.… Read the rest

Is Bigfoot Psychic?

Frame 352 from the Patterson-Gimlin film, alleged by Roger Patterson and Robert Gimlin to show a Bigfoot, and by some others to show a man in a gorilla suit.

A small faction of the Bigfoot believers community thinks that the mysterious Sasquatch beast is an inter-dimensional psychic.

via ScienceBlogs:

With the appearance of a shaky 24 feet of filmstrip in 1967, Bigfoot stepped into the limelight, out from centuries of Native American myth, unsubstantiated yarns, and mysterious footprints. Ever since this footage — the so-called “Patterson-Gimlin Film” — the Bigfoot has fiercely entertained, spooked, and howled through popular consciousness, becoming as potent an icon of the region as the spotted owl — or grunge music, for that matter.

There are those, however, who take the beast very seriously. They claim that until the Patterson-Gimlin film is satisfactorily debunked, or the hundreds of other sightings they have under their belts reasonably explained, then they’re going to keep conducting the earnest field work that is the backbone of organizations such as the BFRO (Bigfoot Research Organization).
