Another Sighting From Lancashire England

Overhead map of Buile Hill Park


I just got in another report from the United Kingdom. Brenda ran across our report from Deborah (Found here) and wanted to share her similar sighting. Here is the report.


- Start Report -

Name: Brenda  ****
Email Address: on file
State: Lancashire
County: LANCASHIRE IN THE UK
Date of Sighting: JAN 1984
Time of Day: Early evening about 5pm
Nearest Town: Salford
Length of Sighting: 30 seconds
How many Witnesses: just myself
Any Photos/Videos: no
Describe sighting in detail:
I recently read your article with a lady named Deborah, who saw the yeti bigfoot in Buile park in Salford and I wanted to get in touch because I saw the same thing in 1984 when I was 30 years old.
I was walking my dog there and it was freezing cold and I was having a cigarette. It was dark at that time of year at 5pm and I thought I was alone in the park as it is usually shut then but this particular night it was open. I was smoking when movement to my left caught my eye.

There was nearby light and I saw this tall thing there. It looked about 6 foot tall and was quite podgy. It had a bit of a belly on it. What got me right away was that it was bare feet. It was then that I noticed it was nude. It had no clothing but it had hair all over the body.

Thats when I thought it must have been someone playing silly beggars but this thing just stood there. I saw it had male genitalia and that was when I became worried. I thought it might attack me.
It stood there staring for about 20 seconds and then it turned very quickly and ran off into the trees. I quickly left the park and returned home and told my then boyfriend and his brother but he laughed and said I must have seen the local perv trying to pick up a prostitute.

I will never forget that thing. I did not know anything about Bigfoot and stuff but thats what it must have been, and to learn someone else saw it in the same trees was startling. I would never forget it.
It looked like a chimp but with the body shape of a man. It couldn't have been a monkey because it was too tall and it was like a caveman from the dinosaur days.

It had a piggy type of nose and large black eyes. It was full of brown hair and it had a human's face but it was also like a chimps. Hard to explain.
I would like my email kept secret from the public as I don't want hate mail but thought i would get in touch because that lady saw the same thing in the park as me. Thanks from Brenda.

- End Report -  

Notice in Brenda's report, at the end, she states she don't want her email public because of hate mail. I can totally understand that and that is part of the reason why people do not come forward. Once you report a sighting, it seems you are quickly labeled a nut or crazy. People ridicule you over Bigfoot sightings and it takes strong and brave people like Deborah and Brenda to step out and tell about their sightings. I get it sometime myself and often times as soon as I have any differences with anyone on any subject they quick point out I'm crazy and believe in Bigfoot or have a PHD in Bigfoot. I guess it just goes with the territory.

Thanks again goes to Brenda for sharing her sighting.


Thanks

An “Almost Touching” Moment With Sasquatch

mock up photo for the report


An “Almost Touching” Moment With Sasquatch
Eric Kern’s Profound Second Encounter In Illinois
By Dorraine Fisher


Sasquatch juveniles are a unique curiosity.  If they are indeed a type of human, do they possess the curiosity of human children? Are they playful like human children? And do they often believe they’re invincible and make mistakes just like human children?

    From all the stories I’ve heard over the years, I believe they may be a lot like human children. And I also believe they are generally watched very closely by adults…since they live in such a dangerous world. And no story illustrates this quite as well as Eric Kern’s second encounter that took place in Bealls Woods State Park and Nature Preserve near his home in Mt. Carmel, Illinois back in 2013. This was an encounter with a young Sasquatch that he almost touched… had the moment not been interrupted.


“The second time around was in July of 2013.  Me and the wife just got a new puppy and he is a hellion.  So one day the wife told me to go take him for a walk in the woods.  At the time, I was still apprehensive about going into the woods, so I went in the afternoon. It was nice and hot. 

“And as we got there, I noticed one thing: not a single bird chirping or nothing.  But my pup wanted to go, so he led me. It was fun as hell until we got to an old dried- up river bed full of overgrowth.  As we got to the top, he started to get riled up something bad.  As I got to the top with him, I saw a sandy- colored object just hunched over at the bottom.

  I thought [it might be] a wild dog.  Then my dog started to bark like mad. Then it [the creature] stopped doing what it was doing and turned as it was hunched down.  It saw me and I saw him, but this time I didn't feel like I was in trouble at all.  More like, what the heck are you doing and what are you? As he stood up, he was young.  At least a teenager from what I gathered from him, but as we looked at each other he had this look on him like he was more scared of me than me of him.  As he just got some bravery up, he took three steps to us. At this time my dog is going bonkers.  Then he reached out and touched my dog and he stopped dead in his tracks.  Not a sound or nothing.  As he did this,  I felt no threat at all,  like an old friend meeting up again.  Then, as  I put out my hand to see if he would touch my hand, a loud bang like a fire cracker went off and a loud grunting started up.  As this happened,  the “sandy kid” stopped dead in his tracks and looked at me, and then ran down the embankment of the river bed and disappeared.  As I looked to see if I could see him,  I see this huge shadow in the tree line watching me.  Then my dog either smelled it or saw it because he pissed right there and tucked his tail right between his legs and ran back to the car dragging me be behind him all the way.” 

    Eric explained later that he didn’t know the other adult was there until it made the loud sound he determined to be a very loud wood knock. He felt the adult was sounding a warning or threat because it believed Eric might do harm to the juvenile.
    I asked Eric how he felt about this encounter after his first had been so frightening.
“Well, I didn't feel anything. It was like meeting an old friend.  You don't feel the need to worry at all.”
    So now, we can only speculate that the encounter might have been a little more touching and surreal had the adult not stepped in to protect the younger.  But we can’t blame them for being afraid of us. They have a million good reasons to be.

Possible Bigfoot Track in KY

Research area 1
I found this possible Bigfoot track in my research area back on 1-11-15.  This is also the area with the stick formation. This track was found very close to the stick structure. Over the last year or so I have found many tracks and broken tree branches. All of this in this area started after 3 actual sightings in a 2 or 3 week period.

I thought instead of making long videos, I would just make shorter videos and post up things I find. I still plan on doing some longer videos but for some of this I will just post short videos.

So here is the video of finding this possible track.
 


Thanks

Bigfoot Sighting in Indiana

Map of sighting area
I got this report from Indiana submitted to me a couple days ago. I think there are many people that know about the fear of seeing a Bigfoot up close.

Here is the report.

- Start Report -


Name: Charles ********
Email Address: on file
State: Indiana
County: Morgan County
Date of Sighting: Summer of 99
Time of Day: 4-6 PM
Nearest Town: Paragon
Length of Sighting: 30 seconds
How many Witnesses: 2
Any Photos/Videos: no
Describe sighting in detail:
I went to stay the weekend with my best friend Sam at his dads and grandpas. His dad lived at the top of the hill and there was a pond behind the trailer.
His grandpa lived down at the bottom of the hill. His grandpa use to tell us a story about how he went hiking with his pet dogs. One day he was attacked from behind by a large hairy creature and the dogs attacked the creature and run it off. He had scars on his back from the attack that resembled scratches made by a much larger hand.

Well, me and Sam was fishing in the pond. We was catching bass and bluegill. Fishing was mine and Sam's world. Well, he thought it would be funny to run to the trailer and lock me out. I was at the back door with my back facing the pond trying to get in. It was all fun and play.
Well, I heard a sound behind me. Hence the pond was only 20 yards from the back door and was only as big as a small swimming pool. When I heard a sound like someone walking I turned around and seen a creature.

It was covered in hair and stood between 7 and 8 foot tall. It was walking the path behind the pond between the pond and the woods. It stopped and looked at me. I immediately started screaming and crying beating on the door begging Sam to let me in.

I turned back around to see where it was it was gone but I could hear something heavy moving very fast through the woods away from me. Sam unlocked the door asking me what was wrong why I was so upset and scared and I told him what I had saw. He said he believed it cause he had seen and heard weird things around there ever since he can remember. Since then I have been a very big believer in Bigfoot.

- End Report -

I can understand the fear Charles experienced.
If anyone has a sighting or encounter to share, please use the Report a Sighting link at the top of the page.

Thanks

NEW FILM ‘VALLEY OF THE SASQUATCH’



NEW FILM ‘VALLEY OF THE SASQUATCH’ TAKES INSPIRATION FROM REAL LIFE BIGFOOT ENCOUNTERS

Seattle, WA –February 24th, 2015– The new horror film Valley of the Sasquatch recently began its film festival run with a world premiere last weekend at the Nevermore Film Festival in North Carolina. But for writer/director John Portanova, the process of bringing this story of a fractured family battling a tribe of angry Sasquatch to life was years in the making.

“Growing up I spent most of my free time studying cryptozoology and the unknown,” Portanova said. “Instead of going outside and playing for recess, I would read books from the 001 section of the library about encounters with Bigfoot or alien abductions. My after school viewing habits consisted of watching paranormal investigation shows such as Unsolved Mysteries or Sightings. Years later when I graduated from film school, I took some time off so I could write my first real screenplay. There was only one idea that really inspired me: making a scary and action-packed movie that respected the history of Sasquatch.”

Portanova continues, “Within the film there is a moment where the character of Will (played by D’Angelo Midili) tells the story of a Sasquatch attack on a mining cabin that took place on Mount St. Helens in 1924. Some of my favorite movies are siege films, especially the classics Night of the Living Dead (1968) and Assault on Precinct 13 (1976). So, inspired by the Mount St. Helens story, I set out to write a Bigfoot siege film. I created some characters who find themselves in a similar situation, where they’re trapped in a cabin and Bigfoot is trying to break its way in.”

“There are also references to other Sasquatch classics sprinkled throughout the script,” adds Portanova. “The character of Bauman (played by Bill Oberst Jr.) is named after a character who appeared in Teddy Roosevelt’s book The Wilderness Hunter in 1892. Within the book Roosevelt relayed the story of a man named Bauman who encountered Sasquatch while out trapping with a guide. This story always fascinated me because it’s one of the only references I’ve seen to Bigfoot taking a human life. The opening of the film features a fictional take on this story, set in present day with our Bauman. A larger subplot later in the film took inspiration from the story of Albert Ostman, who said that he was kidnapped by a family of Bigfoot for six days in 1924. In our film, a character finds himself in a similar situation with a much angrier group of Sasquatch.”

“With Valley of the Sasquatch I wanted to tell an engaging story for the cryptozoology community,” Portanova concludes. “I’ve seen a lot of Bigfoot films and have never been completely satisfied with them outside of some of the 70s classics such as The Legend of Boggy Creek or Sasquatch: The Legend of Bigfoot.

They usually portray the creature as a bloodthirsty monster, treat the whole thing like some big joke, or are shot found footage style. Within the script and shooting of Valley I made sure to treat Sasquatch with respect. It isn’t a slasher film that just replaces Jason Voorhees with a Bigfoot, it isn’t full of cheap CGI and stupid characters, and it wasn’t shot on a handycam. I hope that the film will appeal to horror fans looking for a dramatic creature feature full of old school practical effects as much as it appeals to Sasquatch enthusiasts looking for a film that understands and respects the history of the creature.”

Valley of the Sasquatch is the directorial debut of writer/director John Portanova. It stars David Saucedo (Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones), Bill Oberst Jr. (Resolution), Jason Vail (Abraham Lincoln vs. Zombies), D'Angelo Midili (The Invoking), and Miles Joris-Peyrafitte (Gut).

The film is a co-production between The October People (Found) and Votiv Films (Obvious Child). You can keep up with future festival screenings and news by following the film on its Facebook page (Facebook.com/ValleyoftheSasquatch) or on Twitter (@SasquatchHorror).

Valley of the Sasquatch Synopsis: After losing their home following a devastating tragedy, a father and son are forced to move to an old family cabin. Neither reacts well to being thrown into this new world. The son's attempts to relate to his father are complicated when two old friends arrive for a weekend of hunting. This trip into the forest will unearth not only buried feelings of guilt and betrayal, but also a tribe of Sasquatch that are determined to protect their land.

About The October People: The October People is a film production company based out of Seattle, WA and San Diego, CA. 2014 saw the home video releases of their first three award-winning films: the psychological horror story The Invoking, the coming-of-age slasher film Found, and the alien abduction thriller The Device.

Mysteries - Great Sphinx of Giza

Great Sphinx of Giza
I thought I'd start a series called "Mysteries" and feature some of the mysteries from around the world. I think most of the post will be rather short and feature some basic information about the particular mystery. There may not be a whole lot of new information about a particular mystery, but it will serve as a place to get some basic information.

The first mystery I decided to post about is the Great Sphinx of Giza, sometimes just called Sphinx.
The Sphinx stands at a whopping 66 feet tall and is 241 feet long. It is considered to be probably the oldest and largest monolith statue in the world. This massive structure is carved out of limestone and is thought to be around 4,500 years old by some researchers.

A Sphinx by definition is a creature having the head of a man or an animal and having the body of a lion. This statue sits on the Giza Plateau on the west bank of the Nile River in Giza, Egypt.

Over the many years, the face of the Sphinx has deteriorated due the weather. Some think the statue resembles the Pharaoh Khafre, who ruled between 1558 and 1532 B.C. 
As you can see from the photo on the left, the Sphinx also has 3 pyramids behind it. The largest pyramid belongs to Pharaoh Khufu who was Khafre's father. Pharaoh Khafre's pyramid, the center pyramid, is built on slightly higher ground than his fathers (pyramid on right). The third and smallest of the pyramids is the one on the left and it belongs to Khafre's son Menkaura.This area also contains several tombs, many with hieroglyphic writing on them.

There is debate and mystery about the Great Sphinx of Giza. Like when was it actually built, who built it, does the whole area and structures have a specific meaning, who is actually buried in the tombs....ects. The mystery has endured thousands of years now and is not likely to be solved anytime soon.


I hope you enjoyed this first entry into our Mysteries Series. I hope to feature many other great mysteries in the future. The thrill of discovery is a wonderful part of the human existence, it broadens our knowledge and our experience.


Thanks

Bigfoot Stick Structure



Just a short video of the stick structure that was made in a sighting and research area. It is pretty isolated and no houses within several miles. I had been through this same area several times and then one day this structure was there. This is an area where I found 30+ tracks after the initial sighting.

There were also many tree breaks, some of which had tracks under them. Some people are quick to discredit tree breaks and stick formation but once you have been in an area of a fresh sighting and find them you have little doubt of what did them.

There are differing opinion about what these type of structures mean. Some say it is a welcome while others say it is a warning to stay away. I don't know myself but will continue to research and try to find out for myself.

Here is the short video (Watch in HD)




Thanks
