A Killer Vampire Cat!

Over on his Paranormal101 blog, Colin Schneider has a preview up from his upcoming book on vampiric cryptids.

It starts like this:

"The Eastern United States used to have large felines roaming its forests. Unfortunately, hunting and human encroachment has resulted in the Eastern cougar (Puma concolor cougar) to be labeled an extinct animal in 2011. Experts believe the animal has been missing from the area since the mid-1930s. That does not stop the cougar from being seen by reliable witnesses all around the Eastern US. Along with the cougar; lions, panthers, and even leopards have been seen in the USA. There are hundreds of cases of ABCs attacking livestock for food, which supports the possibility that there is truly population of cats that shouldn't be in the USA, but there is also many 'high strangeness' reports such as the vampiric ones discussed above. Mutilations supposedly perpetrated by felines are unusually common in America.
"Probably the most extensive and widely known case of ABC mutilation is a series of attacks which occurred around the area of Richland Township, Ohio in the spring of 1977. The first attack occurred on March 22 when a 74-year-old farmer, Elmer Nesbaum found his sheep pen ripped open and most of his sheep killed or wounded. The sheep had deep claw marks on their bodies and Nesbaum reported that blood covered the animals and the pen. There were also deep fang marks on the animal's necks, which suggest a creature of the same ilk as the Bladenboro Beast. Nesbaum quickly called a veterinarian to try and save the few survivors. Only a handful of the animals survived.
"Nesbaum, determined to protect his remaining animals, moved the pen into a more enclosed area between his barn and storage sheds. He put heavy gates in front of the pen and wire around and on top of the pen. Steel muskrat traps were also placed strategically in front of the gates. Nesbaum's strategy seemed to work… for a few days."

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.
