|Bigfoot & Banshee - Backdrop photo by Dorraine Fisher|
From time to time I get in reports that for one reason or another, I can't follow up on in full. Be it technical reason, or time constraint reasons or whatever. With that said I want to share a couple reports with everyone.
Here is the first one of a Bigfoot report from North Carolina.
Name: Roger ******
Email Address: email address was no good, that is the reason the report is incomplete.
State: North Carolina
Date of Sighting: 4-16-2014 and jan 1-2015
Time of Day: 3-45-am
Nearest Town: mt. airy
Length of Sighting: none
How many Witnesses: none
Any Photos/Videos: photos of tracks with tape measure on them
Describe sighting in detail:
I have never seen a bigfoot, but I found large foot prints in the mud in my yard. They were 15 long and 7 inches wide, with toes on 4-16-2014. On jan-1-2015 something was taping on the back of my house, I went to check it out and I heard a loud scream that sounded like a elephant. CAll ME AT ***-***-**** I live in foot of the mt.in NC.
The above report sounds very promising but the email was not any good and I just will not cold call on someone, I have to have it set up first before I call. I would have liked to got to see these photos of the tracks.
Here is another report of a Banshee sighting but due to time problems I could not call and speak to the witness but I did correspond with them via email.
Name: James ******
Email: On file:
Date: 1985 or 1986
Place: Cushlawn Park, Tallaght, Dublin, Ireland.
I saw a banshee when I was about 8 or 9 years old, myself and a friend name John ******* had walked another friend home, after leaving him we went to our street by taking a short cut, when we got to the top of a lane and walked another 20 or so feet we both saw it, we were very young and took off running, we both lived in cushlawn park at the time and apparently that neighborhood was built on an old grave yard. Not sure how true that is. I don't usually talk about this but was just reading this now and figured I'd add this.
It looked like what it's always described as, kind of a cloudy dirty white and floating, I didn't see a comb or anything like that, as I said, we took off running very quickly, we had told another guy who was about 16or 17 years old at the time, he went up then and he saw it too.
This Happened in Cushlawn park in Tallaght, Dublin, Ireland.
James also provided his phone number but at this time I'm just unable to set up a call. Maybe one of our team members or myself will get a chance to follow up even more on his report.
For those who may not know what a Banshee is I will post the Wikipedia description of it.
The banshee is a female spirit in Irish mythology, usually seen as an omen of death and a messenger from the underworld. In legend, a banshee wails nearby when someone is about to die. There are Irish families who are believed to have banshees attached to them, and whose cries herald the death of a member of that family. Most, though not all, surnames associated with banshees have the Ó or Mc/Mac prefix, indicating their name is native to Ireland, not descended from invaders.
That is just a overview of what a Banshee is described as.
Thanks goes to Roger and James for sending in these reports. We love getting them even if we can not research it in full. Maybe we will have more on these reports in the future.
If anyone has a sighting to share, then please use the link at the top of the page and send it in.
