Pokemon Go Player Says He Encountered a Loveland Frogman

Last month some news articles appeared online suggesting that people playing Pokemon Go around Loch Ness could potentially get a picture of one of the Loch's legendary monsters, and now, someone claims they spotted a Loveland Frogman while playing the game.

WCPO Cincinnati is reporting that Sam Jacobs and his girlfriend were playing Pokemon Go "between Loveland Madeira Road and Lake Isabella" Wednesday night when they encountered one of the frogmen.

"We saw a huge frog near the water," Jacobs said. "Not in the game, this was an actual giant frog."

He quit the game and managed to get some photos and a short video of the purported frogman.

The couple went to Jacobs' girlfriend's house afterwards and her parents told them about the legend of the Loveland Frogmen.

"…The thing stood up and walked on its hind legs," Jacobs said. "I realize this sounds crazy, but I swear on my grandmother's grave this is the truth. The frog stood about 4 feet tall."

Below is a picture Jacobs took.


What do you think? Is it really a Loveland Frogman?


On the same subject, Mark Matthews, a police officer who encountered a "Loveland Frog" in 1972, says that he and fellow officer Ray Shockey did not see frogmen, but an iguana. In all the stories it says Matthews shot at a frogman but missed, but he said he actually shot (and hit) an iguana, which was about 3 to 3.5 feet long. He said the animal was already half dead and was missing its tail, which is why he didn't immediately recognize it.

Matthews said he talked to an author once about the story, and told him there were no frogmen, but that the author omitted that part of the story. 

So, are there really frogmen, or is the whole thing a story blown out of proportion over the years?


As another side note, more on the Loveland frogs can be found in my book Cryptid U.S. and in my forthcoming book on Ohio cryptids… (look for more on it in the future).

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.
