I ran across this rather interesting trail camera photo today. There appears to be a black upright figure in the image. I do not know very much about this picture or who for sure it belongs to. The only name I could find associated with it was an Amanda Young.

Could this be a real Bigfoot? or is it just something else. I will attempt to enhance the picture and tell you more about the back story, even though I don't know much about it.
Is this a spirit haunting a cemetery?
The above photo and the other ones in the post were reportedly taken in a cemetery in Ohio. The photographs were supposedly taken by a funeral home employee. The images, to my understanding, were first posted on social media. Many seem to think this a ghost of some sort haunting the cemetery. You can see what looks like fog or smoke as it appears to arise up out of a grave.

Regardless of what it is, either paranormal or natural, it is still pretty creepy.

Runtime:54 minutes

I finally got around to watching the documentary film Minerva Monster. This film is about a continuing series of bigfoot sightings and activity in a small town in eastern Ohio. The film mainly focuses on one family and their years of activity behind their house. The film also brings in other sightings from the area and numerous interviews.

According to the documentary, a local family had a sighting of the creature near their home and being frightened called the police. From there the whole event kind of snowballed and the area and the family was thrust into the spotlight. The story made local and national news headlines. Every bigfoot hunter and rubbernecker from all over came to the area. There were even times when the family was harassed by skeptics.

According to the family the creature kept coming around the family's property, it would throw rock and make tree knocks. The family tells about many sightings and encounters with the beast. They talk about finding huge footprints and finding bedding areas.

There were many things I like about this little film. I like the fact that the local police officer who was called to the house, is actually interviewed extensively during the film. The newspaper reporter covering the story way back in the 70's, is also interview extensively. The production and film quality is high level. It was a well done production.

Throughout the course of the film, other witnesses and more recent sightings from the area are added in, but the central story remains around this one particular family. Bigfoot researcher Paul Hayes is also featured in the film and he tells about the sighting he and his son had of a bigfoot.

Overall, it was a pretty good little film, just realize it is not a film about going out and looking for evidence. It is mostly interviews and people telling about what happened. There are some photographs presented from the central story but not much. This is the aspect of the film that I was a little disappointed in. I wish there had been more photos from the police investigation or family presented.

So, if you would like to watch a film about a family who has had numerous sightings and encounters with bigfoot, then this film might be right for you. Please be aware that the first of the film is pretty slow on the bigfoot front. It is mostly historians telling about the town and how it's grown over the years.  While many will find the first part of the film boring, just hang with it, after it gets into the bigfoot stuff it is much better.

Here is the official trailer

During the interviews there are a lot of different details given about the area and the sightings. I was unfamiliar with this story and its long history, so I enjoyed learning about it. 

Here is my final rating.
Rating: 3 out of 5

Bigfoot Sighting In Central Ohio
An Interview With Cynthia Risser
By Dorraine Fisher

We’re always intrigued by stories of bigfoot sightings by people that didn’t believe the creature existed at all...until it walked out in front of them one day. But is it any less significant to have a sighting when you already believe Bigfoot is real?

Maybe not.

It seems believing in Bigfoot for most of your life and actually seeing one are two entirely different things, as Ohio resident, Cynthia Risser, a long-time believer, would come to realize in her recent encounter in Coshocton County, Ohio.

The Famous Ohio Hovering Craft
UFO or No?
By Dorraine Fisher

Not all UFO’s are actually flying objects.
On May 25, 2016 while watching a notable sunset over Dayton, Ohio, locals spotted a large object hovering overhead that appeared to just be sitting still in the heavy clouds. And the object was seen by Dayton inhabitants three separate times. So there was plenty of time and opportunity to get good video and photographic footage.
The interesting thing about this object was that it was hovering suspiciously close to the air space over Wright-Patterson Air Force Base, which leads witnesses to speculate a lot about the object’s origins. Not a lot is known about the goings on at Wright-Patt, but it is known to have been the center hub of a government project to investigate UFO’s and extraterrestrial sightings that was taking place in the 1950’s and 60’s.
So, one has to wonder, is this a new type of drone capable of sitting in a fixed position in the sky? Or is the Air Force experimenting with some elusive alien hovering technology? Either way, they’re not trying to hide it very well, as this video indicates. Check it out and see what you think.

loveland lizard by WEElliott

The Loveland Ohio frogman Legend

In Loveland Ohio there is tales of people seeing what is called frogmen. Sometimes the bipedal amphibians are also referred to as the Loveland Lizard but from the description, it sounds more like frogs. And beside that, I think we already have many "lizard man" sightings, and it way past time that frogmen got some press.

The Loveland Frog  is a legendary humanoid frog described as standing roughly 4 feet tall, allegedly spotted in Loveland, Ohio. A local man reported seeing three frog like men at the side of the road in 1955. The sighting happened along a road that runs beside the Little Miami River in neighboring Clermont county. The witness reportedly pulled his car over and watched the frogmen for about 3 minutes.

A police officer claimed to have seen a similar creature on a bridge in the city in 1972. The officer was driving slow due to icy road conditions when he saw what he thought was a dog on the side of the road. All at once the creature ran in front of his car, the officer slammed on the brakes, which caused him to spin out. When the car spin stopped the creature was in full view. The creature stood up and crossed over a guardrail. Two week later another officer, Mark Matthew, also seen and described the same creature. The odd frogmen creatures were also seen by a farmer. 

Of course, many people just want to dismiss reports like this and say there is nothing to them. It's much the same way they do with bigfoot and UFO sightings. But I think reports of this nature should not be so easily dismissed. First, we have multiple frogmen seen by a local man. Then, 17 years later we have 2 police officers spot the same thing. It just seems to me, that if the first sighting in 1955, was nothing more than a made up story, then it would have been totally forgot. So, it makes it seem less likely that the police officers were just continuing to hand down a tall tale. Plus, we normally trust the word of policemen, after all they are trained to observe details.

This legend reminds me of an old movie starring the late Roddy Piper. It was called Hell comes to Frogtown. In the movie Sam Hell (Piper) is a prisoner of the female faction who took over the US after nuclear war. Mutants thrive in the wasteland while humans face possible extinction due to infertility. Bomb strapped to his crotch, Hell is forced to rescue a group of fertile women from a harem ran by an evil mutant gang. The evil mutant gang, just so happen to look like frogman. While the movie is not the greatest thing in the world , it is a pretty fun watch, in my opinion.

When, it comes to the Loveland frogmen, there has not been any real video recordings of them, as far as I know. But there has been one attempted hoax video, which I will share with you.

Now, I wonder if there has been any more sightings of these 3-4 foot tall, webbed hand, frogmen. It would appear it has been roughly 40 years since a reported Loveland frogman sighting. If anyone has heard of a more recent sighting, or have seen one yourself, then please let us know.

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.

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.

Bigfoot track in Ohio
Bigfoot in Ohio
An abnormally large footprint — which some believe belongs to Bigfoot — has been discovered in a northern Ohio backyard.
Ashtabula County resident Wendy – she asked to have her last name withheld because she’s not sure she wants to be involved with Bigfoot stories – was doing yard work on Aug. 11 when she noticed a 7.5 inch wide footprint that was an inch and a half deep into the mud.
“I took a picture to show my mother’s husband, who’s a hunter, and he said it wasn’t a human’s,” she said. “I’m not claiming that footprint to be anything. I don’t know what that is.”
Wendy recalls multiple incidents in the past five years in which she and her husband have come across “something not human.” She said she hears knocking sounds on the walls of their house late at night, and she remembers a time when she saw a figure in all black running across the railroad tracks.
“The direction they were going, there were no homes. It would’ve gone out the woods, crossed the tracks, and gone back into the woods,” she said.

Wendy and her husband have also heard loud growls outside. “I never walked backwards so fast to get back in the house. But I couldn’t see, it was so dark back there.” She said the growl was impossible to duplicate and made her husband’s “hair stand up.”
“I didn’t believe in the sasquatch before,” Wendy said. “And in fact I’m still fighting it. But I can’t make sense of that large footprint.”
According to the group Bigfoot Field Researchers Organization, Ohio has logged more than 242 sightings since 1974.

From the photo and video it appears the track is 7 inches wide. I don't think they actually told how long it is. Then if you take in the rest of the story about hearing growls and knocks on her house, plus seeing the dark figure run across the railroad tracks, this has potential to be a real bigfoot track.

Livestock Mutilations In Ohio
By TCC Team Member Dorraine Fisher

Butler County, Ohio has been the recent scene of some disturbing livestock mutilations. Two miniature horses named Blaze and Buck were found hacked to death last week on a stretch of pasture near what is known as Springfield Road situated near the Indiana state line. They had been known to be missing since May 23.

The owners Augustin and Yolanda Gama-Martinez, said their children were playing near the fence where the animals were found when they said they smelled something awful. They found one of the bodies intact, while the other’s head was found some 30 yards from the body.

Incidentally, this is very near the same spot where, on May 9, four sheep were found hacked to death, along with four more sheep and two other horses that were severely injured. Outside investigators have been trying to get more information on the incidents but no one close to the situation is talking much.

The partially decomposed bodies of the two horses left no clue as to how they actually died. Local law enforcement is obviously stumped and claiming it was probably coyotes, but local residents aren’t convinced. And some are convinced it’s more likely the work of some disturbed human(s).

Brittany Kolb, 27, who’s sheep were killed last month claimed there has been no problems with coyotes in the area. She believes whatever killed her sheep is also responsible for these killings. The rest of her animals that were injured by stab wounds at that time, received care, and are now recovering. Since these incidents, she is boarding her animals at another location.

Since the bodies were described as being hacked or having stab wounds and the bodies did not appear to have been eaten, also deflects from the coyote theory. Kolb said, "(The wounds) are pretty wide, very deep, like you can put your hand in them." She also said she originally believed the wounds may have been inflicted by an axe or hatchet. Though some have claimed over the years that coyotes kill "for the fun of killing," they don’t generally inflict stab wounds and sever heads from their bodies without great difficulty. And even if coyotes didn’t eat their prey, something else most surely would, especially if the animals had been lying dead for a while.

At any rate, it has everyone in this normally quiet rural area spooked. Children are being severely restricted in their outside play time, and pets are being kept under watch also. And the incidents may remain a mystery indefinitely and leave the local residents disturbed for a long time to come.

"We’ve had animals for eight years in that field," Kolb said. "And never had a problem with coyotes, and so have these people. Now all of a sudden, they have dead horses. It’s pretty ironic to me." *******DF

Surrounded By Owls In The Woods?
A Frightening Bigfoot Encounter In Ohio
By TCC Team Member Dorraine Fisher

Barnesville, Ohio
            There are strange moments in the woods when you just know things aren’t what they seem. And Mark Hudak’s hunting trip on private land in Ohio was just such a moment.
            Hudak, of Clinton, Ohio, jumped at the chance to do some hunting on a nice 2000-acre plot of private land near Barnesville, Ohio. But he and his friends got more than they bargained for that night.
            "It started out that we heard some owls hooting at us. Well, that is normal, so we didn't think nothing of it," Hudak explained. But then it got stranger.
            As the men continued their trek through the woods, they realized the owl sounds were numerous and coming at them from both sides. The noticed also that the sounds were getting closer as they walked, and they stopped every time the men stopped walking.
            As they continued moving down a ridge, they heard an animal scream at them.
            "We finally noticed that something else was not right. Not a single other animal was making noise anymore. No nighttime sounds. Now if you're a hunter, you'll know how weird that it," said Hudak.
            And in the silence of the night he and his friends noticed the distinct sounds of footsteps all around them, and they knew they weren’t dealing with owls. They knew they were being followed by something.
            "I would almost compare them to a Navy Seal team the way they flanked us," Hudak explained.
The group, now too afraid to try and run back to their vehicle or to get any hunting done,  waited out the long night in the woods. They claimed that the normal sounds of the woods didn’t return until nearly 11:00 AM the next morning.

            Though they never saw anything, Hudak was convinced that he and his partners most certainly had an encounter with Bigfoot.  Hudak had been interested in the subject of Bigfoot since he was a child And he’s been searching for them ever since this encounter with the help of the Southeastern Ohio Society For Bigfoot Investigation (SOSBI). *******DF

I Heard a loud bang outside and grabbed my camera and recorded, I saw this "thing" I believe is a Bigfoot. Take a look for yourselves. I was using a Nikon Coolpix L110 for the recording.

Dateline Greeley Colorado January 16, 2011
Clifford Clift, International Director of the Mutual UFO Network (MUFON), has announced he will be stepping down as International Director, effective January 31, 2012.
David MacDonald, member of MUFON's board of Directors and State Director for Kentucky will replace Clift as International Director (ID) February 1, 2012. Clift is stepping down as ID due to personal commitments and family health issues, which will require his full attention.
He said, "MUFON needs a full time ID and he will not be able to provide full time leadership under these conditions."
Clift also said, "I know my limitations and the requirements of time MUFON needs to be successful. I can't be successful with both." Clift would like to express his deep gratitude to MUFON subscribers/members for their commitment in seeing that MUFON achieves the fulfillment of its goals and thanks everyone for their continued support over the past two years.
Cliff goes on to assure, "MUFON has come a long way in a positive direction and I'm excited to say that the Mutual UFO Network is in good hands with David. His level of dedication and his leadership skills will be an incredible benefit to our organization. David will be a very effective International Director for MUFON."

David MacDonald is no stranger to MUFON and the organization's mission. David is currently on MUFON's Board of Directors, Assistant Director of Investigations, MUFON's Star Team Administrator, the conductor of testing for new Field Investigators and much more.
As a business man, over the years David has had numerous successful businesses. Currently, he runs a school for Pilots and Aircraft Dispatchers. Additionally, he owns and runs Flamingo Air, a Charter Airline.

Clifford continued his praise, "David MacDonald has excellent credentials within MUFON and the business world. David's business background and knowledge of the UFO phenomenon is very sound and successful. He brings much to the table as the new leader for MUFON."
When asked how David felt about taking over the position of MUFON's International Director, he said, "I'm excited about taking over the leadership role of MUFON and I'm looking forward to working with all the great people in the MUFON organization."
David will move MUFON International Headquarters to Cincinnati, Ohio, where he operates Global Airline Education Center and Campus. Being centrally located, the International Headquarters will be easily accessible to many more members. Cincinnati is within a 6 hour drive for 60% of the population of the United States.
