Bipedal Thylacines, Bipedal Wolves, and Dogmen

Imagine running into a bipedal creature that looks like a man, but has the head of a wolf. If any of you readers have looked at this blog before you probably know that I've written a lot about Dogmen, which I think are becoming the "next big thing" in cryptozoology.

Dogmen are usually described as about seven feet tall, with extremely muscular bodies, elongated wolf paws for feet and hands, German Shepard-like heads, and sometimes tails. Yeah, these things are not the same thing as Bigfoot. Dogmen are seen all over the United States, and are sometimes seen near where humans live. These things are mean, too.

Nick Redfern has a new post on his blog and Mysterious Universe about this fascinating phenomenon. It isn't all about American Dogmen, though; part of it is about Thylacines.

A Thylacine

Thylacines were marsupials that lived in Tasmania and Australia. They officially became extinct in the 1930s, but people have reported seeing them since, and there's nothing else in the world that looks like a Thylacine. I'm one of the people who thinks Thylacines could still be alive. And honestly, I hope they are, because Thylacines were/are amazing animals, and got a fate they didn't deserve. People living in Tasmania/Australia killed off most of the Thylacines only because they thought the critters were killing their sheep; when in reality the majority of sheep killing were actually caused by wild dogs. By the time the Thylacine could be protected, it was too late. The last one officially seen alive died in a zoo in 1936.

They say you learn something new every day, and Redfern did teach me something today: that Thylacines could actually walk on their back legs. They also had heads like wolves. Does that sound like anything to you? Now, Dogmen don't really look like Thylacines, but they are a bit similar.

Redfern's post starts out like this:

As readers of Mysterious Universe will know, one of the things that particularly fascinates me is the matter of werewolves. Not in mythology. Not in folklore. And not in the movies. We’re talking about werewolves in…reality. Of course, most people scoff at such a fantastic scenario. But, the fact is that there is an undeniably huge body of data on record that suggests these things do exist. Check out the excellent, published work of Linda Godfrey and you’ll see what I mean.
Now, when I talk about werewolves, I’m most definitely not referring to people who literally shape-shift from human to wolf, sprout hair and fangs, and then change back again. I’m talking about creatures that appear to be wolves of some kind, but that have the ability to walk on their back legs – as in upright form, and not unlike us. Could it really be the case that an unrecognized type of bipedal wolf calls the United States its home?

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.

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…

Review - Invasion on Chestnut Ridge

Small Town Monsters' 5th film, Invasion on Chestnut Ridge, comes out soon. STM director Seth Breedlove let me check out an advance copy of the film to put up a review on here. Though I've been quite busy for about the last month and a half, I finally got a chance to check out the film, and these are my thoughts on it.

Invasion is about the strange happenings along the Chestnut Ridge in Pennsylvania. Local residents who have had strange encounters are interviewed, as well as researchers Stan Gordon and Eric Altman.  Along the ridge, witnesses have reported ghost lights, UFOs, Bigfoot, werewolves, thunderbirds, and many, many other odd things.

Many well known sightings happened in the early 1970s, when reports of UFOs and Bigfoot were very frequent. The strangest thing of all this was that sometimes the two would be seen at the same time, or shortly after on another. Some witnesses even saw a white colored Bigfoot that was holding a ball of light.

On another occasion, two Bigfo…
