The Hexham Heads, The Sheep-Man, and The Werewolf

This is probably one of the few times you will see a post about something of paranormal nature on this blog, but I thought this story was really interesting.

The Hexham Heads were a pair of 6cm tall stone heads discovered by two boys in Hexham, England, in 1971.

After the boy's discovered the heads, their family(the Robsons) started reporting strange things happening in and near their home. Sometimes, they said, the heads would mysteriously move when no one was in the room with them. The same thing happened with bottles. The family living next to the Robson, the Dodds, also reported strange happenings. One night, one boy's hair was pulled by something, and, shortly afterward, his mother saw a "half-man half-sheep" leave the house!

After all these things happened, the heads were given to Anne Ross, who was an expert in Celtic artifacts. After she got the heads, Ross said, she also woke up one morning and saw a "part-man part-animal" figure walking through her house. She followed the figure downstairs and saw it go towards the kitchen, but she then lost track of it.

A few days after Ross saw the animal-man, her daughter told her she had seen a "werewolf" when coming home from school. The "werewolf" was on the stairs and jumped over the banister, and then vanished! Ross also reported seeing a dark figure and having other strange things happen in her house. Knowing that the Robsons had the same things happen to them when they had the Hexham Heads, she got rid of them.

Later, a man said he had created the heads and scientists said they were not carved and were fake, but what about all the strange things that happened to the people who had them in their possession? Along with the other things, the Dodds reported glass raining down on one of their beds!

Eventually the heads were lost.

Do you think the Hexahm Heads were cursed, or had some connection to paranormal activity?

The Burrunjor - A Present-Day Australian Dinosaur?

Australia is said to be home to a variety of cryptid creatures, from the aquatic Bunyip, the man-like Yowies and Wakkis, and the thylacine. There is another, however, that could be considered stranger than all the others. Why? Because its said to be something that should have gone extinct 65 million years ago!

The creature in question is called the Burrunjor, and is said to be a surviving dinosaur. Now, before you think that there is no possible way the Burrunjor could be real, remember that there are sightings and stories of other dinosaur-like creatures from around the world - for example, the mokele-mbembe, kongamato, and others in Africa, "Mounatin Boomers" in the U.S., the Partridge Creek Monster, and more.

Over the years there have been many sightings and stories of the Burrunjor in Australia, including this one from Rex and Heather Gilroy from the 1970s:

"In 1978, a Northern Territory bushman and explorer, Bryan Clark, related a story of his own that had taken pl…

Some Thoughts on Alaska Monsters: Bigfoot Edition

So far, two episodes of Alaska Monsters: Bigfoot Edition have aired. Here are some of my thoughts on the show.

First off, let's start with the team, the Midnight Sons. There are a few new members on the team this season. The old leader, Little Bear, is gone, and now Crusty (the guy with the bear claw in his beard) is leader of the team. Other members are: Dudley (new guy), the team "forensic expert," Todd, the "trap engineer," Bulldog (new guy), the "survival expert," Rhett, the "greenhorn" (rookie), and of course Face, the "veteran tracker."

Compared to the AIMS Team of Mountain Monsters, Crusty is Trapper, Todd is Willy, Rhett is Buck, Bulldog would probably be Huckleberry, Dudley would probably be Jeff, and Face would be Wild Bill.

I haven't seen the first episode, "Bigfoot of the Arctic Circle: Siberian Giant," but I did watch episode two, "Bigfoot of Denali: Wind Walker" last Saturday. I actually though…

Mountain Monsters - Coming Back in 2018?

Destination America's Mountain Monsters was a huge hit when it premiered in 2013. It's had five seasons through last year.

Season 3 started a "Bigfoot Edition" and season 4 introduced a "rogue team." Last season focused entirely on this "rogue team" and ended with really no conclusion.

Over the past 2 Saturdays, some old season 2 episodes of Mountain Monsters have been playing in the evenings. Could this be a sign that the show might be back for another season this year, or does it have no meaning at all?

If the show does come back, where can they go? Last season made absolutely no sense at all and the whole thing was pretty stupid. If it does come back, I think they should go back to just monster hunting like they did in the first two seasons. Once they went to just "Bigfoot Edition" things went downhill quick.
