A 50-year-old minister from Texas claims that she and her daughter spotted a jurassic-like bird flying while at Stone Lakes National Wildlife Refuge in California.

via Cryptozoology News:

The minister, a 50-year-old Texas resident and avid bird watcher, said they were at Stone Lakes National Wildlife Refuge, south of Sacramento, when the creature showed up on a clear spring day.

“We were hiking and looking for Blue Herons and other migratory birds,” the woman told Cryptozoology News on Thursday. “My daughter and I saw the bird first and we both pointed to it, stunned and in shock as we tried to come up with a logical explanation for what we thought we were seeing. It was not a kite, it was a real animal,” she added about the alleged 1994 encounter.

The eyewitness says they observed the animal for about 20 minutes as it circled an area and then veered off in a different direction.

The man submitting the report, a 23-year-old Brownsville student who provided his full name but requested to remain anonymous, told Cryptozoology News that he was in the living room having dinner when the creature partially showed up.

“I watching TV while eating a bowl of noodles,” he said about the 2003 encounter. He was 11 years old at the time of the incident. “No one was home because everyone but me went to church that night,” he added.

He maintains that as he sat there, he “kept feeling this presence” inside the house.

“I had the kitchen light turn on and the hallway along with the rest of the home was dark. The darkest area was the hallway.”

Suddenly, he says, he saw a hand wrapping its fingers around the corner.

“I saw it and closed my eyes and shook my head, only to see its hand still holding on to that corner.”

He described the purported creature as being reptilian in nature, of a “blackish color” and “covered in scales”.

This may be the most outrageous ‘alien/creature’ photo of recent memory.

via Cryptozoology News:

The man submitting the report, who did not provide a name, says he was walking through the woods in the early afternoon of March 25 when he spotted the oddity standing in the middle of a trail.

“A bright sphere floated in front of him,” he reported to MUFON. ” I took out my mobile phone, and I did a photograph.”

The man says he can’t remember what happened after taking the photograph.

“I only know that the creature disappeared,” he said, wondering whether it was an “alien”.

Image analysts tell Cryptozoology News that the picture was taken with a Samsung Galaxy S5 cellphone on the date originally reported by the eyewitness. It does not, initially, appear to have been doctored with image editing software, such as Photoshop.

Michigan Man Claims Encounter with ‘Grey Alien’ Creature Inside Home

via Cryptozoology News:

LAPEER, Mich. — A man claims he saw a small grey alien-like creature inside a house in southern Michigan.

The Lapeer County witness, who didn’t reveal his name, states that the encounter was the last in a series of UFO sightings that took place during the summer of 1994. He said his mother was driving he and one of his friends back home from a weekly bowling session at Oxford, Michigan, when he noticed some bright lights in an empty field on the left side of the road.

“I thought there was a football game or some event going on, not realizing where we were. The field was completely illuminated at least a hundred yards and as I observed this I noticed a large triangular object,” he wrote on the MUFON website on Tuesday.

The triangle-shaped object, the witness explained, was hovering 100 feet above the ground.

via Live Science:

The elusive and rare Sierra Nevada red fox has been spotted in Yosemite National Park for the first time in nearly a century, park officials said yesterday (Jan. 28).

Camera traps caught the sleek animal in a remote northern corner of the park on Dec. 13, 2014, and again on Jan. 4 of this year. The cameras were set up by wildlife biologists hoping to spot the red fox and the Pacific fisher,Yosemite National Park’s rarest mammals. The ongoing study is funded by the Yosemite Conservancy.

There hasn’t been a verified sighting of the Sierra Nevada red fox inside Yosemite National Park since 1916, said Ben Sacks, director of the University of California, Davis Veterinary School’s Mammalian Ecology and Conservation Unit. That year, two animals were killed in Yosemite’s Big Meadows, northeast of El Portal, for the University of California, Berkeley’s Museum of Vertebrate Zoology.

via Highland County Press:

A resident of the Carmel community has reported seeing a strange creature along Carmel Road on Friday, Dec. 12.

Ron McGlone, an investigator with Mutual UFO Network (MUFON), said “The witness was driving near Carmel on Dec. 12, 2014, came up over a hill and saw a 7′ tall slim, gray creature with muscular legs that walked like its knees were backwards.

“The 60-year-old former Marine (who allegedly saw the creature) also said it didn’t seem to have arms. He also included a sketch made shortly after he arrived home.

“I would like to get this information out in your area in hopes that maybe someone else has seen it – or that their giant cross-bred ostrich got loose – or something!”

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.”

A Living Gnome Has Been Spotted in Pennsylvania

Reminds me of the story I wrote in 8th grade about a gnome who set traps throughout a forest to cut people’s feet off.

via Earth Files:

On Thursday, August 21, 2014, the following email was sent to Earthfiles with images taken by a Bolymedia hunting camera sensitive to heat and movement. The sender, Keith Sniadach (SNY-dack) from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, gave me permission to reprint his email and images.

August 21, 2014

Hello Ms. Howe,

My name is Keith Sniadach. I am an author, screenwriter and researcher from Pittsburgh. My writing is geared toward the paranormal/supernatural. (You can go to Amazon and type my name in the search bar to see my books).

I’m writing to ask if you have had any reports come in of any gnomes/trolls or any other mythological and/or cryptid forest creatures like a brownie in the northeast U.S. — particularly Western Pennsylvania.

The reason is because I have a cabin north of Pittsburgh in the mountains of Western Pennsylvania where I enjoy the summer months.

It’s not as famous as Grilled Cheesus or Nun Bun, but the image a James Island woman found Friday on the back of a dead cownose ray may be one day.

“I just kind of thought it looked like a bearded homeless man,” said Erica Scheldt, 24. “But when I posted pictures on Instagram, one of my friends was like, ‘That’s Jesus.’ And I was like, ‘Oh my God! You’re right!’”

Scheldt also pointed out that she is from Nashville, home of the famous Nun Bun, a cinnamon roll that bears a strong resemblance to Mother Teresa.
