The Crypto Files - Bigfoot Scream


This is a special episode of The Crypto Files. In this episode, we feature a recently recorded primal scream. The scream was recorded by the bigfooting duo of Corey and Tye.  They have been researching bigfoot and other cryptids in the state of Iowa for a long time now. They have documented various pieces of evidence over the years.

The duo thinks this particular scream was made by a female bigfoot.
Here is the video and enhanced sound.



A big thanks to Corey and Tye for allowing us to use the recorded audio. We think it was a good capture. It does sound like a chimp. We wish Corey and Tye continued success in their research.



Thanks

Giant Bird Seen in Alaska

This photo is thought to be a promotional picture for a film.

With my recent report, from Roger in Michigan, of a possible Thunderbird sighting. I did just a little digging on the internet looking for past reports of the giant bird. I ran across a report from Alaska that I had not seen before. I thought it might be a good idea to share that report here. I take no credit for this report, as it was not sent to me, but it appeared in the Anchorage Daily News and was written by Peter Porco.

Here is the newspaper write up.

ANCHORAGE, Alaska - A giant winged creature, like something out of Jurassic Park, has reportedly been sighted several times in Southwest Alaska in recent weeks.
 
Villagers in Togiak and Manokotak say they have seen a huge bird that's much bigger than anything they have seen before.
 
A pilot says he spotted the creature while flying passengers to Manokotak last week. He calculated that its wingspan matched the length of a wing on his Cessna 207. That's about 14 feet.
 
Other people have put the wingspan in a similar range.
 
Scientists aren't sure what to make of the reports. No one doubts that people in the region west of Dillingham have seen a very large rapto-like bird. But biologists and other people familiar with big Alaska birds say they're skeptical it's that big.
 
A recent sighting of the mystery bird occurred Oct. 10 when Moses Coupchiak, a 43-year-old heavy equipment operator from Togiak, 40 miles west of Manokotak, saw the bird flying toward him from about two miles away as he worked his tractor.
 
"At first I thought it was one of those old-time Otter planes," Coupchiak said. "Instead of continuing toward me, it banked to the left, and that's when I noticed it wasn't a plane."
 
The bird was "something huge," he said. "The wing looks a little wider than the Otter's, maybe as long as the Otter plane."
 
The bird flew behind a hill and disappeared. Coupchiak got on the radio and warned people in Togiak to tell their children to stay away.
 
Pilot John Bouker said he was highly skeptical of reports of "this great big eagle" that is two or three times the size of a bald eagle. "I didn't put any thought into it."
 
But early this week while flying into Manokotak, Bouker, owner of Bristol Bay Air Service, looked out his left window and 1,000 feet away, "there's this big ... . bird," he said.
 
"The people in the plane all saw him," Bouker said. "He's huge, he's huge, he's really, really big. You wouldn't want to have your children out."
 
Nicolai Alakayak, a freight and passenger driver from Manokotak who was flying with Bouker, said the creature looked like an eagle and was as large as "a little Super Cub."
 
Comparison to an eagle, certainly. Super Cub? Probably not, scientists said.
 
"I'm certainly not aware of anything with a 14-foot wingspan that's been alive for the last 100,000 years," said federal raptor specialist Phil Schemf in Juneau.
 
Schemf, other biologists, a village police officer and teachers at the Manokotak School said the sightings could be of a Steller's sea eagle, a species native to northeast Asia and one of the world's largest eagles. It's about 50 percent bigger than a bald eagle.
 
 (Distributed by Scripps Howard News Service http://www.shns.com)

The wingspan is right in line with not only Roger's recent report, but many others. I'm sure there are some misidentifications in some of the reports, but it would seem logical to think that there has to be something to them. 


Thanks

Possible Thunderbird Report and Witness Interview

General area of the sighting.
This following is a combination of a submitted report, email exchange and a witness phone interview. The witness had two separate sightings of a possible Thunderbird. The Thunderbird is described as a large bird like creature that is normally tied to Native American tradition. Fossil records does show that giant birds with wing spans between 12 and 18 feet did exist. The Thunderbird is largely thought of as a myth nowadays, but reports of sightings keep being documented from time to time.

Here is the report and interview with Robert.

- Start Report -

Name: Roger ******

Email Address: On file

State: Michigan

County: Wayne

Date of Sighting: Summer of 2008

Time of Day: Between midnight and 3 a.m.

Nearest Town: Riverview

Length of Sighting: 2 minutes on several occasions

How many Witnesses: 2

Any Photos/Videos: No

Describe sighting in detail:
An extremely large turkey vulture like bird that had a wingspan of 12 to 15 ft. Was seen several times on the same place about 40 to 50 feet off the ground. Once perched on a large dead tree limb. Heard the bird squawk several times. Still fairly clear in both witnesses memories.

- End Report -

The above submitted report is what got the ball rolling and led to the phone interview. The interview gives much more detail.

Here is the interview. 




Thanks goes to Roger for the report and interview. If anyone else has seen this large bird then please file a report with us.

Thanks

Is This Champ? The Legendary “Monster” of Lake Champlain?




Is This Champ? The Legendary “Monster” of Lake Champlain?
By Dorraine Fisher

Lake Champlain is a 125 mile (201 km) long strip of freshwater lake located between New York State and Vermont, extending all the way up into Quebec, Canada. It is named for Samuel De Champlain, the founder of Quebec. But the most intriguing thing about it is the legend of Champ, the monster that’s believed to live in the lake.

Many believe the creature could possibly be a relic plesiousaur, a dinosaur believed to have become extinct during the early part of the Jurassic period, but somehow managed to survive after the lake dried up somewhat and was cut off from the larger body of salt water which included the Atlantic Ocean.

Many people in the area believe the stories are just legend with no real basis except to boost tourism around the lake. But since Champlain’s time, there have been hundreds of supposed sightings.
One of the most notable scientists searching for evidence of Champ’s existence is Scott Mardis who has graciously allowed me to share this with our followers. According to Mardis, a man named Eric Olson was out taking his morning walk in Oakledge Park near Burlington, Vermont , when he captured this video on his cell phone.
Let us know what you think.

New Photos of Maryland Goatman? (Update)


I was just recently sent the above photo by Ryan. It was taken in Maryland on 4/26/16. Some may not know there is a legend of a goatman in Maryland. We also have a very similar legend here in Kentucky. If you have seen the news recently, you might have seen that we had a woman killed while researching the Kentucky Goatman legend. The lady and her boyfriend were from Ohio and were investigating the Kentucky Goatman. You can read that story Here or just search the web for it.

As for this new report from Maryland, I was contacted by Ryan via email. He also sent me two photos that he took. I will include various enhancement during this post. Here is what he told me about his sighting.

"I'm in DC for the GRC summit starting yesterday and was playing tennis Saturday (23rd) morning at Montpelier Park while some friends played golf at Pawtucket Greens.
As we were packing up we saw something on the forest bordering the park. As I took out my camera phone it came up onto two feet and I realized it was a goat. I told some people back in DC about a goat waking on two legs and they said it was some old Maryland Goatman legend.
I called WBAL in Baltimore and talked to someone about it but I don't think they believe me. They think it's a bear holding a freshly killed goat. They ran the story yesterday concluding that but I think there's more to it. I started looking into cryptozoology and found your site so I'm sending them to you."

Here is a link to the short report done by WBAL - you can view it Here

Here is a brief overview of the Maryland Goatman Legend:

According to urban legend, the Goatman is an axe-wielding half-animal, half-man creature that was once a scientist who worked in the Beltsville Agricultural Research Center. The tale holds that he was experimenting on goats, the experiment went awry, and he began attacking cars with an axe, roaming the back roads of Beltsville, Maryland. A variation of the legend tells of Goatman as an old hermit who lives in the woods, seen walking alone at night along Fletchertown Road.
The story seems to originate with an alleged sighting in 1957. The Goatman is also said to have murdered a number of hikers in 1962.

I was able to follow up with Ryan about his sighting and pictures.
I ask him about the height of the creature, and how long he seen it, here was his reply.

"I watched it standing for a few moments and then it came down on all fours and disappeared into thick forest. This photo was taken with my phone zoomed all the way in and, if I had to guess, I was about 30 yards away. It stood probably about 7 feet tall when it was on two feet. WBAL determined it was a bear with a goat in its jaws but that wasn't how I perceived it."


Here is another photo that Ryan took.

Here is a zoom on the figure, you can clearly see the horns and the goat looking head.


 Now, I can't see this being a bear with a goat's head in its mouth. I can't see this as just being a goat standing on it's back legs. The witness said it would about 7 foot tall, no goat standing on it's back legs would be that tall.

So, we are left with the possibility that this IS a Goatman. I will be the first to admit that I'm just not sure what this is but it does not appear to be just a bear or just a goat.

I also did a short video on this image, but all of the information and more is covered here in this post. If you would still like to watch the video, you can do so at this link. - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dTucQwHJIuc


Now, I have to ask ...if anyone has more information about this recent sighting of a possible goatman or if you have also seen it in this area, please contact me.


UPDATE - I guess I should have also included the following information but it slipped my mind. I ran these two photos on some software that detects edited images. There was no obvious signs of anything like Photoshop. Here is some of the Meta Data - size 4032 x 3024, 72 dpi. I also ran an error level analysis and it didn't reveal any thing unusual. Please keep in mind that many of these test are inconclusive and that photoshop is sometimes difficult to detect.  I'm not saying this is or isn't an altered image, I'm just saying I didn't find anything that suggest it was altered. The witness has been very open to any questions that I have ask him and seems to be just looking for answers.



Thanks

Mysterious Camp Beauregard


The Camp Beauregard Memorial, outside Water Valley, Kentucky on Kentucky state road 2422 northeast of town, marks the site of Camp Beauregard during the American Civil War. It was named for Confederate general P. G. T. Beauregard. It was situated to protect the right flank of the Confederate base at Columbus, Kentucky.

While an active military installation, from September 1861 to March 1, 1862, it trained 5,000-6,000 soldiers for the Confederate States of America.

However, the place was disease-ridden, resulting in 1,000-1,500 deaths at the camp. The diseases included cerebrospinal meningitis, pneumonia, and typhoid fever with poor weather and lack of sufficient supplies for the troops contributing to the dire situation. In a single day 75 cases of typhoid and pneumonia were reported.

Under the direction of the 27th Tennessee Regiment's Colonel Thomas Logwood, the camp was burned down. Union forces captured the site shortly after the abandonment.




A monument was erected by the United Daughters of the Confederacy in 1909 to commemorate the soldiers that died there and supposedly, some 900 soldiers are buried in a mass grave under the monument…..but some folks say those soldiers are STILL THERE today?





Here is an experience from my friend, Dana M.:

My best experience: I was with a group of friends at night. It was very late. We all branched off wandering around reading headstones. I went off to myself. 

I was standing reading a large monument and the name "Dorothy" screamed in my head. It was weird. I turned around and when I shined my light on the headstone behind me her name was Dorothy. It was surreal.

We heard the beast and ran to the car and left. These events are all separate nights. The last time I went my friend Bob was in town. I had not seen him in 25 years. We went to the cemetery. He also went with another group. This was in August of 2012. In March of 2014, he died in his sleep.
My other friend Karen and I went as a group and took pictures. About three months later she died on her living room floor. I will not go back I'm also very ill but that's another novella.”

Other reports include:
One person explains he has seen lights dancing on some of the headstones and seeing various dark figures running through the graves only to vanish.

There’s also a black beast-like figure that supposedly will chase visitors in an attempt to make them leave.

One night, two individuals said the “beast” followed them for several miles before flooding their car with an over-whelming scent of cinnamon before vanishing.

Also, there are reports of people hearing combat sounds, including what has been described as the sound of sabers clashing.
