What do Governments know about Bizarre Creatures?Wednesday, May 22, 2013
By Nick Redfern
For absolutely decades, rumors, tales and legends have surfaced to the effect that government agencies all around the world and since at least the early to mid1800s onwards - have been secretly collecting and carefully studying data on bizarre beasts, extraordinary animals, and strange creatures. Lake monsters, psychic dogs and cats, sea serpents, flying monsters, werewolves, the Abominable Snowman, and the United States' huge, hair-covered man-beast known as Bigfoot: each and every one of them has attracted official, classified interest at one time or another, and sometimes for decades, no less. Not only that, those very same rumors, tales and legends have provoked numerous controversial and astounding questions, including... Does the Pentagon's top brass, deep in a secure underground bunker, secretly have one or more dead Bigfoot on ice?
Formation of Strange Objects in the Monongahela RiverTuesday, March 12, 2013
By Stan Gordon
It was late afternoon on February 10, 2013, as two men stood in a parking area not far from Millsboro in Washington County just along the bank of the Monongahela River. It was still light outside and the weather was mild and dry at the time. As the men continued their conversation, one of them pointed to the river and said “look at that.” It took a moment for the other man to look toward the water and focus on what his friend was seeing.

Book Excerpt: The Mystery Animals of PennsylvaniaSaturday, November 3, 2012
By Andrew Gable
In 1934, Albert Yashinsky of Shenandoah shot and killed Susan Mummey (‘Old Suss’) of Ferndale seven years after she supposedly hexed him as he worked in a field adjacent to the Mummey farm. Yashinsky is said to have muttered in prison, “Those eyes! Oh, those eyes, oh how I wanted to have them closed! I could not stand them!” This incident was also connected to an appearance of some weird zooform creature, though in this case it is more obvious.
Documentary Review: Eyes of the MothmanMonday, March 7, 2011
By Paranormal News
One thing’s for certain: like the toxic sludge left over from mismanaged World War II facilities in Point Pleasant, the Mothman is still out there. Somewhere. I’ve seen it, others have seen it, so it’s really fantastic to find film crews who take the subject much more seriously than you could ever get from a two minute ‘look at these freaks’ clip on the nightly news. Informative in all the right ways--despite some really creepy guests--you’ll appreciate the detail supplied here by the film’s producers.

I received the following account this past weekend. Was it Bigfoot...or another bi-pedal canine sighting in Pennsylvania?
Linda Godfrey is an author, investigator and artist she is also the author of 16 books on strange creatures, phenomena and people.
A Bigfoot hunter named David had posted a series of videos about his encounters with the creature on his channel 'Something Hairy In The Shadows.' The strangest of the lot was his sighting in 2005 of a Bigfoot flying over Walla Walla. I have transcribed the video. Make what you want of it.
Not long ago, a reader asked how many bi-pedal canine reports I've received over the years. Actually, until recently, I had received a small number of believable accounts. So I've pulled up a few pre-2014 reports for those readers who may be interested.
A YouTube video features an interview with a man named Brian Sullivan who claims that he had with an encounter with a Wendigo creature in February 1972.
I received this interesting report several years ago. I don't doubt the witness' account...but the situation is somewhat whimsical.
In light of the Pennsylvania dogman encounters and incidents that our group is currently investigating, there is a legendary bi-pedal canine supposedly roaming the rolling uplands and mountains of neighboring Maryland. This post includes a few reports & updates I've collected over the years.
Jc Johnson of Crypto Four Corners called me recently in reference to the mysterious Oklahoma Octopus. Supposedly this cryptid is a freshwater cephalopod-like creature generally said to inhabit at least two lakes in Oklahoma (Lake Thunderbird and Lake Tenkiller...there is some mention of Lake Oolagah as well) where it attacks and kills unsuspecting swimmers. It's no longer 'just a rumor.'
This week we discuss the upcoming field investigation 'Searching For The Pennsylvania Dogman' on Arcane Radio. Our colleague Butch Witkowski will join Sean & Lon as we detail the team's agenda. The groups currently involved in the field investigation include the UFO Research Center of Pennsylvania, Phantoms & Monsters Fortean Research, Anomalis Investigations and members of the Pennsylvania Bigfoot Society...as well as other independent researchers. This should be an amazing show! Join us on Monday October 19th - 10PM ET / 7PM PT - go to www.arcaneradio.com and click 'Listen Live' for listen & chat. https://www.facebook.com/events/863371823760759/

Whatever this thing was, it most definitely was not my imagination (my friend could hear strange noises, grunts, sharp high pitch sounds that he or I could not explain, nor have ever experienced before). I still don't know what it was, it stays to the shadows.
