Encounters with Dogmen, Goatmen, Mothmen, and Sasquatch, and more on a New Book

"A Dogman Encounter in Colorado
"In December of 1993, a woman and her son were driving through the mountains of Colorado when they saw a 'tall, dark, hairy creature with large pointed ears and large glowing eyes.' The creature had long arms that hung below its knees (which is common in Bigfoot descriptions), but ran away on four legs."
"Wolf-Woman of Alabama
"In the early spring of 1971, residents of Mobile, Alabama, reported seeing a 'wolf-woman.' 'The top half was a woman, the bottom half was a wolf,' one witness said. Another said 'It didn't seem natural.' What Werewolf seems natural?" 
Here's some about the Goatman of Maryland:

"On November 3, 1971, April Edwards and a few of her friends heard strange sounds coming from outside of April's home. When they looked out, they saw the silhouette of some creature walking in a field. Soon after, April's puppy, Ginger, disappeared. On November 30th, the puppy's mutilated remains were found near some railroad tracks. A news article in the Washington Post originally covered the story, and it stated that one of April's relatives, Kathy Edwards, and several other girls had seen the goatman sitting on top of a pickup truck."

William Roe's Sasquatch sighting:

"One last early Sasquatch encounter occurred in 1955. William Roe was in the Mica Mountains of British Columbia. He was hunting in the mountains, and saw what he thought was a grizzly bear at first. He could only see the head of the creature, but soon it stepped out into the open, and he could tell it was no bear!
"Roe's description of the creature he saw follows:
"'My first impression was of a huge man, about six feet tall, almost three feet wide, and probably weighing somewhere near three hundred pounds. It was covered from head to foot with dark brown silver-tipped hair. But as it came closer I saw by its breasts that it was female.'
"Roe's description was really the first good description of a Sasquatch."

On Mothman:

"On November 1st, a National Guardsman had seen a strange creature sitting in a tree. On the 12th, three days before the Scarberry-Mallette sighting, five men digging a grave near Clendenin, West Virginia, looked up and saw something that looked like a brown man flying over them. It was in sight for about a minute."

The accounts above are excerpted from my book United States of Monsters: More Tales of America's Most Terrifying Creatures, which I am currently writing. Like Cryptid U.S., it is about cryptid sightings in the U.S.A., but covers much more than the first book did. I have seven out of twenty-one chapters finished as of right now, so maybe, now that I have figured out everything on the publishing site, you might see another book by me out later this year. It'll be a while, though, because I'm still not close to finishing.

Be on the lookout for more on the new book.

You can buy Cryptid U.S.: Tales of Bigfoot, Lake Monsters, and More From Across America on Amazon.

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.
