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.

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.

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.

On the evening of August 26, 2010, about 8:10 pm, there was a sighting of a monstrous bird in South Greensburg, PA. Just as it was getting dark, four people were sitting around in the yard having a barbecue and enjoying the beautiful weather when suddenly, their attention was drawn skyward by a sound like a “swish” or a “swoosh” or as one witness stated, “like air coming straight down.”

A woman, her husband and child were in their car driving along the country road that afternoon. Suddenly, the woman seated behind her husband yelled out, “watch out for that snake.”

It appeared to be aprox. 3- 3 1/2 feet in height. As it seemed to be running fast across the lawn, it sounded heavy, like an adult human. It didn’t have fur or feathers. I saw two skinny bone like legs, but didn’t look as though it had feet like a human, similar to that of a bird.

Recently, I was contacted about an incident which happened in rural Westmoreland County, outside of Mount Pleasant. There were four people traveling in a car during the evening of June 27, 2009, when they saw something very strange crawling on the road ahead of them. A man yelled out from the back seat and pointed ahead, making the others aware of what was occurring.

Chances are you won’t find in-depth articles on these and other crypto-creatures in your local newspaper or in academic journals. Blogs do a great job of keeping enthusiasts up-to-date on the latest sightings, but what’s been missing from the crypto field is a regular weekly publication that brings readers more analytical, in-depth articles on cryptid-related phenomena -- a newsletter that goes beyond hyperlinks and daily headlines to bring readers information they simply can’t find anywhere else.

I know that many Bigfoot researchers are hot to prove the existence of the creature, and in such cases as Native American mythology their research of it is even more spotty. Many have a “Harry and the Hendersons” approach to Bigfoot. In Chinook Indian mythology they were a vicious race of demons that tormented man and was known to abduct and eat humans...

The Sacred Book of the Werewolf is so rich in symbolism that I hardly know where to begin. On the surface, it seems to be the story of a teenage oriental prostitute named A Hu-Li who falls in love with a werewolf in her travels through modern day Russia. But underneath that relatively thin layer is a tale more about a Russian crisis of identity, and mankind’s crisis of identity as well, as both attempt to transform itself from tailless monkeys into something else--the super-werewolf.

I think most people have a bizarre fascination and would probably enjoy being stranded on an island, myself included--at least for a short while. This book will take you and your children on that adventure, and given the beautiful illustrations, your imagination and your children’s imagination will be completely immersed in that netherworld known as--well, Monster Isle.

The death of zoologist Steve ("The Crocodile Hunter") Irwin in 2006 contributed to the change. Irwin died after a stingray attack in 2006, leaving his daughter Bindi to take over his hosting responsibilities. Around this same time, The Waterhorse--a movie about the Loch Ness Monster--came out in theaters.

The wing tips stirred the dust and gravel on both sides of the roadway as it ran to become airborne. The witness later returned to the site and measured the distance across the road from edge to edge. It was 21 feet. The witness stated that he was in a slight state of shock as he watched the creature fly off.

The witness confesses that when "the animal" was close to him, flying off with a gentle beat of its wings, he was unable to control a bowel movement, a fact that he has tried to keep confidential on account of the customary jokes that tend to emerge in such cases.

It is now approaching 49 years that I have been researching and investigating mysterious encounters in Pennsylvania. While I have an interest in all types of anomalies, I have focused on the UFO phenomena, and sightings of Bigfoot, black panthers, mountain lions, and other mystery animals. Over the years I have had some reports of what were described as huge birds with gigantic wingspans.

A hiker recently posted a video on YouTube claiming that he captured a video of Bigfoot while exploring the Utah mountains. In the footage, the man seems to be startled by a strange figure that he found lurking in a wooded area across from where he was hiking.

On Monday evening, Sean & I were guests on 'Show Notes with Shannon'. As a result, I received several inquiries and a few sighting accounts by email this morning. One report, in particular, caught my attention...so I followed up on it

The only way I can describe it was something walking on two legs with large frog feet.

I was lost out in the woods while camping with my parents somewhere in central Ohio and this large female ape-like creature put me back in our camp.

Five years ago (2010) in the southern Adirondacks of NY, in the Adirondack Park, to the amazement of many - America's largest wilderness Park - my wife and I saw what can only be described as a hyena chasing several deer across the road. The animal literally stopped dead in front of the car staring back at us for 10 seconds before it moved off.

If you've read my blog and books, then you're probably familiar with my opinions in regards to the existence of Bigfoot and other cryptids. For a long time, I've experienced a lot of grief for expressing my ideology.

There were 2 of them. Very large (wing span of Cessna airplane) transparent flying creatures flying or swimming high in the sky near the Bremerton beach & over my in-laws house. The head was clearly similar to a prehistoric bird with a pterodactyl type beak & although the body/wings reminded us of a sting ray (no feathers), it had feet & a long prehistoric bird like tail. They seemed to glide in the air.

The witness worked as a parks & recreations officer in Mississippi, then relocated to several other locations between Mississippi and Tennessee. He states that he sighted a lycanthrope creature on (I believe) 5 different occasions.

The Bigfoot or 'furry people' activity the witness describes is similar to the activity seen in the Navajo Nation reservation / Four Corners area. Even though more New Mexico residents are beginning to realize the presence of these beings...let's hope that there can be a peaceful co-existence.

We figured it was about 6 1/2 ft high and covered in black hair. When we saw it jump the rocks, we did notice the shoulders were real wide and the legs were kind of short but strong.

I received this sighting report over the span of a month or more. Much of it needed to be removed in order to publish (by request of the witness). The content is a bit general, though I sense that the witness really did observe something unusual

His father looked at him and asked if he had every heard anyone talk about 'the Hairy Man?" Grandpa Parker told him that he had not. He was scared now.

I was as still as possible, though I was shaking. This Bigfoot was no more than 100 ft from me though I was 12 foot in the tree. I must have watched it for 10 minutes or so as it waded through the water eating whatever it pulled out.

The second night we were there, we heard strange screaming sounds coming from one the bluffs west of us. It wasn't like anything else I've ever heard before. We also heard something heavy moving through the brush and trees. I'll admit we were scared. As the night went on, things quieted down.

First of all, it had the overall shape of an eagle. It definitely had talons which were lighter in color. It also had beak which seemed too large and long for it's face. The overall color was dark, I'd say black. The height was at least 8 ft, probably more as it bobbed up and down. It may have been eating something when I approached it.

About 5:30 PM we heard a distress call on the radio from one of the security attachments located north of our location, then we heard gunshots coming from the same direction. The best I can describe the situation is that all hell broke loose. The civilians were hustled out of the area immediately.
