UFOs and a Werewolf? - The Wausau Whatzit

In the late 1980s and early 1990s, a strange, werewolf-like creature was spotted several times by a family in Wisconsin, in conjunction with sightings of strange flying objects. The creature is called the "Wausau Whatzit" by some researchers.

The story starts when:
"A boy (he was 13 at the time of the first encounter) and his friends were out in one of his parent's fields, sitting around a campfire, eating pizza, and throwing snowballs at each other. Suddenly, a strange beam of light appeared in the field and started moving towards the boys. The group got spooked because they could not identify the source of the light, but calmed down when it disappeared.
"Three years later, the boy and another one of his friends saw three of the strange lights above a creek. He and his friend saw those lights several times over a span of a few nights. the boy also saw a large, glowing, oval shaped object (a UFO?) floating towards Lake DuBay one night at 1:56 a.m. Six minutes later, the object came back and shot off towards the creek, leaving a streak trail behind it.

"He would still camp out with friends on his parents' property, and a strange light would illuminate the campsite from time to time. They also saw an odd, triangular head looking at them from a nearby cornfield.
"Not long after that, one of the boy's friends said something rammed into the side of his pickup truck. He said the creature followed him home and tore gardening tools off of a shed, but he never saw what it was. Another one of his friends saw the creature cross the road, running on two legs. He said it was six feet tall and grayish in color. After it crossed the road, it dropped onto all fours and ran towards there river.
"A week later, the boy and his friend Jason saw the creature standing in the middle of the road. It stared at them with yellow eyes and had pointy ears. The boy said the thing had a human-like body, canine legs, and tan, oily skin. It was very thin (they could see its ribs) and it had no tail.
"The boy said that, after seeing the creature, he thinks the UFO he saw could have been picking it up (or maybe dropping it off?) Strange lights and UFOs have been associated with Bigfoot and Dogman sightings before, so maybe it's possible the boy and his friends saw an alien werewolf."

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…
