Is Urban Bigfoot In My Midst?
By Dorraine Fisher

Many who are new to the subject of Bigfoot may believe they only live in the vast wilderness areas of North America. But nearly eight years ago now, I wrote an article suggesting that sasquatches may be able to live in areas that might be considered urban. It wasn’t a completely new idea then, but it wasn’t widely accepted. Now, a lot of time has passed and evidence of urban bigfoot is turning up in many places never expected.

My state of Illinois is not well-known for its wilderness areas, but there is a lot of evidence along the many rivers, wetlands, and other watershed areas. Illinois has a lot of rivers, woods, and the deer believed to be Bigfoot’s main food source.  And many of these areas are very close to the city limits. And, according to countless bigfoot investigators, they are sometimes inside the city limits.

In this, the 3rd episode of Ninja of the Woods, Big Jim conducts a live show. At the first of the episode he reviews the previous shows to bring any new listeners up to date. Jim also offers more information and opinions about the video featured in his previous shows.

Then he dives into a personal experience of staying in a haunted house with some friends. The episode ends with another personal experience of a UFO sighting.

Here is the episode, we hope you enjoy it.

General area of reported sighting.
I got the following reported bigfoot sighting submitted to me several days ago. I have attempted contact with the person and was awaiting a reply, that is why there was a delay in me posting this up.
The reported sighting is fairly recent, taking place on the sixth of December. The sighting location is Humboldt county, California. Humboldt county is home to numerous bigfoot sightings.

Before I get into the actual report, I'd like to share a little information about Humboldt county.

Humboldt county has more coastline than an other county in the state of California. But don't let that throw you off, it is also densely forested and mountainous. The county contains over forty percent of all remaining old growth Coast Redwood forests, the vast majority of which is protected or strictly conserved within dozens of national, state, and local forests and parks.

One of Humboldt's major rivers is the Klamath River. And as you probably know Klamath River is home to many reports of bigfoot or bigfoot activity. Klamth River flows over 250 miles through Oregon and northern California.

The above picture and reports comes from Katrineholm,Sweden. It could possible be of an actual bigfoot or as many call them Trolls. I had to do some digging to find information about this report but I managed to find it.

The story goes like this: The witness was out taking a walk, he eventually sees two deer and starts to take a picture when this possible bigfoot runs out.

The reason this was a difficult report to find a lot of information on is the fact it is from 2011 and the witness wanted to remain anonymous. I did find an excellent write up of it, along with a witness interview. I want to share it here and give full credit to Crypto Sweden for this information. I will also add additional information after, along with some photo enhancements.

Still frame from the original video
In case you missed it, there is a video that is getting a lot of attention of what some think could be a bigfoot in a corn field. The back story in a nutshell is that this young girl was using her iPad to film the beautiful sky while her mother drove somewhere. You can hear the little girl talk about how pretty the sky is and then as they are driving along, a figure is seen moving into a corn field. The little girl shouts "What was that?"

This reportedly was shot in Provo, Utah, which has been home to several possible bigfoot videos over the years, is it a hot spot or is it a hoax spot? This video is interesting but sadly the video is not good enough to make a clear judgement based on the visual content of the moving picture. So, we have to take aspects of the video and attempt to gain more knowledge about the figure.

Some people call it a Rock Ape, some call it Ujit, others call it Nguoi Rung but regardless of the name you call the Batutut this hidden hominid is very similar to the North American bigfoot. The creature is often seen forging for food in the forest and jungles of of Vietnam, Laos and northern Borneo.

The creature has been sighted for well over 50 years. In 1947  a sighting by a French colonist refereed to the animal as a L'Homme Sauvage, translated it means "wild man".

Learn more about the Batutut in this episode of The Crypto Files. 

The mythic creature Leshy, also sometimes call the Wood Demon, is based on Slavic Mythology.
Leshy, sometime called wild man, is said to be a woodland spirit and a protector of animals and the forest.

Leshy is often described as a tall creature that can shape shift. He is said to have a beard made out of living grass and vines. In some description, the Leshy has a tail, horns and hoofed feet. Some say he carries a wooden club and is the lord of the forest.

The over all appearance of the Leshy is that of a man, but with a more pointy head and a few other oddities. It is said that the Leshy likes to play tricks on people in the forest and confuse travelers.  The legend says that you may hear the Leshy laughing, singing or whistling while you are in the woods. But be careful, if angered the Leshy can become very dangerous.

There are many other descriptions and behaviors for the Leshy, even one where he has blue skin. The Leshy is always male and in some tellings he has a wife and children.

From all the different descriptions and the wide range of behavior, it appears the Leshy is kind of a free flowing legend. A legend that can adapt and change when needed to fit the scenario.

In my brief research of the Leshy, it seems to also have some of the same characteristic and roots as the United Kingdom's Woodwose.

Some tie and connect the Leshy to  Bigfoot which I guess seems fitting, as Bigfoot is often called the wild man of the forest.

Almas -
Also Almasty and Albasty.
The Almas (Mongolian: Алмас/Almas, Bulgarian: Алмас, Chechen: Алмазы, Turkish: Albıs), Mongolian for "wild man", is a purported hominid cryptozoological species reputed to inhabit the Caucasus and Pamir Mountains of central Asia, and the Altai Mountains of southern Mongolia.

Other names by which these creatures are known, depending on the particular region, are 'Wind-Man', Abnuaaya, Bekk-Bok, Biabin-Guli, Gul-Biavan, Guli-Avan, Golub-Yavan, Kaptar, Kra-Dhan, Ksy-Giik or Ksy Gyik, Mirygdy, Mulen and Voita.

Almases are typically described as human-like bipedal animals, between five and six and a half feet tall, their bodies covered with reddish-brown hair, with anthropomorphic facial features including a pronounced browridge, flat nose, and a  receding chin. Many cryptozoologists believe there is a similarity between these descriptions and modern reconstructions of how Neanderthals might have appeared.

1420 - The first known printed reference on the Almas was made by a Bavarian named Hans Schiltberger. He traveled through the Tien Shan mountains as a captive to the Mongols. During his imprisonment he kept a journal in which he wrote:
"In the mountains themselves live a wild people, who have nothing in common with other human beings, a pelt covers the entire body of these creatures. Only the hands and face are free of hair. They run around in the hills like animals and eat foliage and grass and whatever else they can find. The Lord of the Territory made Egidi a present of a couple of forest people, a man and a woman, together with three untamed horses the sizes of asses and all sorts of other animals which are not found in German lands and which I cannot therefore put a name to."

1807-1867 - Sightings reported at Khalkha, the Galbin Gobi and Dzakh Soudjin Gobi as well as in Inner Mongolia; also at the Gourban Bogdin Gobi, Chardzyn Gobi and the Alachan desert.

In the mid 1800s  a wild woman who was named Zana is said to have lived in the isolated mountain village of T'khina fifty miles from Sukhumi in Abkhazia in the Caucasus; some have speculated she may have been an Almas. According to accounts, she was very physically powerful, able to perform feats of exceptional strength. Zana, at first was violent towards her captors but soon became domesticated and assisted with simple household chores. While in captivity, Zana was passed on through a succession of owners and mothered several hybrid children. According to the story, she had as many as 6 offspring, by different men, with a total of 4 surviving with the help of the local village women. According to reports the children were fairly normal, except for being dark and physically powerful. The 4 children were assimilated into normal society, married, and had families of their own  One of the male children, Khwit, remains namely the skull was examined by Dr. Grover Krantz in the early 1990s. He pronounced it to be entirely modern, with no Neanderthal features at all.  Zana, herself  died sometime in the 1890.

In the 2013 a documentary, Bigfoot Files, Professor Bryan Sykes of the University of Oxford showed that Zana's DNA was 100% Sub-Saharan African in origin and she could have been a slave brought to Abkhazia by the Ottoman Empire Prof. Sykes did however raise questions as to whether Zana could have been from a population of Africans who left the continent tens of thousands of years earlier as her son, Khwit's skull had some very unique and archaic characteristics.

There is much more to the tale of Zana and her offspring, I invite others to research and come to their own conclusions.

Myra Shackley and Bernard Heuvelmans have speculated that the Almases are a relict population of Neanderthals, while Loren Coleman suggests surviving specimens of Homo erectus. They have been connected to the Denisova hominin. Descriptions of Almases are similar to that of the Yeti of the Himalayas.

Name: Almas
Similar to: Bigfoot, Orang Pendek, Batutut,Yeti
Location: Central Asia
Movement: Bi-pedal
Size: 5-6 and half Feet tall
Photos/Videos: None

Most of this information comes from Wikipedia and there is very little I have added to the post. As for the photo used, I do not know who the original artist is or who to give credit to. There is much more tales of the Almas and sighting reports than I have included here.

I was sent the following photos, artwork and video by Larry Surface. Larry has decided to release the enhanced version of his video to the public. Larry captured a humanoid type figure outside of his home in Ohio about 2 years ago.  Below is the video and a statement from Larry.

Enhanced Larry Surface Video - Ohio Wild Man by TheCryptoCrew
(All Rights to this video belong to Larry Surface, Please do not Copy. Posted with Permission)

-Statement from Larry Surface-
Two years ago I captured a video of one of the Wild Primates that roam in southern Ohio. I thought it was a breakthrough in Sasquatch research, but unfortunately it was met by silence by the scientific "Ape theorists". And dubbed a fake by the TV and Internet personalities. To them it looks too "Human" to be a Sasquatch.
Although only a small percentage of viewers called me a hoaxer, it was enough to drive me out of the public view for a while. But now after spending considerable time in enhancing the video, I'm going to repost it. And just avoid seeing the insulting remarks by not looking at the comments.
I was hoping that it would have been used in the DNA project,
but apparently they have something better.

Here is a painting done of the figure (All rights belong to Larry Surface)

A big thanks to Larry for letting us share the video.

With any evidence, good or bad, that is released there is always criticism, we just have to shrug it off and keep working.

The Vanishing Phenomenon of A Sasquatch
Is There A Simple Explanation?
By TCC Team Member Dorraine Fisher

            Confucius said “Life is really simple, but we insist on making it complicated.”
            One of the greatest curiosities about sasquatches is their ability to seemingly vanish without a trace, into thin air. Some believe it to be a supernatural ability, some equate it to some skill of super intelligence, or maybe it’s just a very unique adaptation for an animal with a prime objective of avoiding humans. Or is it really something simple?
            Occult View offered up the “bear with mental illness” theory; the idea that maybe some bigfoot sightings are actually bears with a brain malfunction that causes them to want to walk on two legs. And when threatened, it drops down to it’s normal four-legged stance and speeds away. The idea is that we’re looking at and possibly misidentifying what is actually a bear on two legs. And the reason it seems to disappear is that when it drops down to four legs, we’re still looking for an upright creature that we, of course, won’t see because our eyes are still focused on another level of vision; at least eight feet tall like we would expect in a normal sasquatch.  

bear walking on two feet
            I suppose this could be true in some cases. Bears do walk on two legs when they want to catch the scent of something...like a human, and there very well may be some mental malfunction that could cause them to do this more often.  But how many bears with this particular mental illness are walking our woods? And what are the odds that someone would see them in this mental state?
            But this theory leads us to another idea. Sasquatches have been reported to crouch down when they feel threatened or adopt a “duck and run” stance.  And they have been reported crawling away on all fours in order to hide and escape danger.
            Is it possible that they sometimes drop down on all fours as soon as they perceive a threat and reach a potential hiding place? Could their seemingly magical disappearance be a simple escape trick that can fool a human’s slow vision.  Is it possible that they do this more often than we think?
            If they duck and run, or crouch down and crawl, they would leave our field of vision instantly. Because we’re looking for a sasquatch; a 7 foot tall plus animal.   And if we did see a sasquatch crawling away on all fours, we might tell ourselves it was a bear and never give the sighting another thought.
            Another idea is that they may simply be so fast in their escape that our limited human eyesight can’t keep up. There have been many reports of them moving very quickly in very rough terrain. They appear to not be hindered by mud, or thick brush, or anything else in their path.
            And then maybe they really are supernatural beings like Native Americans have always claimed.  Maybe our human logic and reason simply can’t accept that there are some things in this world we may never know.  Maybe some things are beyond the physical and beyond our comprehension. Maybe the supernatural really does exist on a different level of reality that we aren’t capable of perceiving.  Maybe. Maybe not. But haven’t so many of us seen far too many strange things as to rule any idea out completely?
            But whatever you choose to believe, we all can agree that they’re amazing creatures we may spend a lifetime learning to understand... and still not get the job done. *********DF

Here is a video done by FB/FB 

(Keep in Mind we have not done any analysis of this video and are not saying this is a real bigfoot)

Are these eyewitnesses seeing an apparition or is this creature real? Listen to the riveting testimony of those who have encountered the beast first hand and decide for yourself.

Bigfoot or Sasquatch attributes from numerous reports include:

The smell of a Sasquatch far exceeds that of a bear or other mammals, many cases report an intolerable stench when a Bigfoot is in the area.

They vocalize in terrifyingly, high pitched scream like mannerisms, many recordings have surfaced in recent years.

They knock trees with branches and logs, reportedly to communicate with each other over long distances.

They throw rocks and boulders, there are countless cases with the creature throwing rocks at campers, even boulders from hill tops if disturbed.

They live in family units, many cases report the sighting of not one but two or more individuals at a time, often with young in tow.

They may have developed a language, many reports tell of a whinnying or gurgling whistle sound associated with their possible speech patterns.

They leave very distinct footprints, many of these prints have dermal ridges and other anomalies that rule out a hoax.

Is Bigfoot real? You will believe after viewing this fascinating collection.

The Displacement of Bigfoot?

Whether its Bigfoot or other large animals,they can get displaced due the advancement of man.
As strip mining,logging and land development continues it will displace many animals and Bigfoot is no exception.

Strip mining site
Logging site

When one of the above mentioned activities occur in a location that is home to bigfoot then one or two things will happen:

1. Bigfoot, along with other large animals, will have to retreat deeper into the forest.
2. Bigfoot and the other large animals will have to live in closer proximity to humans.

If number 2 happens (which i think it has and will continue) there will be even a bigger increase in Bigfoot sightings.

Thanks to camera phones we are getting more and more videos and pictures of Bigfoot. Most are what we call blobsquatch but as time goes on the camera phone will continue to improve and the pictures and videos should get better and better.

As most people have noticed over the years,there has been increased reports of black bears, Bigfoot and large cats among the general public, I feel this is a direct result of the advancement and development of our lands.

It has been my experience,living where logging and strip mining happen everyday, that smaller animals such as raccoons,chipmunks, squirrels,rabbits..ects are not as effected by the strip mining and logging and normally keep living in the area, but larger animals like deer and black bear move out of the general area. These larger animal tend to move back in rather quickly once the mining or logging has stopped. Many times deer will even come back to the area on days when the working is stopped be it for a holiday or weekend.

Would this be different for a Bigfoot? I would guess that the time period for a Bigfoot to move back into an area where is was displace would be much greater due to the lack of food source,fresh water loss of cover/shelter and the fear factor would play a part. The Bigfoot which would have been scared off by the big equipment,blasting ect... would have a deeper intelligence and remember the event longer making it be more cautions. In fact it may never move back the the area.

So in closing, we can all get our cameras and cell phones ready as we should start seeing the big guy more and more.
