Mothman's Squeaking Sounds

In 1966, the town of Point Pleasant, West Virginia was the site of lots of strange activity. During that year and throughout the next, there were sightings of UFOs, odd occurrences, encounters with Men in Black, and of course, the Mothman.

The first publicized sighting of the Mothman occurred on November 15, 1966. Two young couples, Roger and Linda Scarberry and Steve and Mary Mallette, were joyriding in the TNT Area outside of Point Pleasant that had served as an ammunitions site during the Second World War. They also happened to spot the Mothman. The creature followed them back to the town, and as it was chasing the car, the witnesses said it made a sound "like the squeak of a huge mouse."

While at the Mothman Festival in September, I was talking with Colin Schneider (another researcher of the unknown) about the creature, and he mentioned that he thought the mention of Mothman's "squeaking" was similar to a banshee. Below is why that could be important.

Banshee
Wikipedia says that "A banshee is a female spirit in Irish mythology who heralds the death of a family member, usually by shrieking or keening" (Emphasis mine).

Now, anyone who knows about the Mothman saga knows that it apparently ended after the Silver Bridge collapsed on December 15, 1967. The collapse of the bridge, spanning the Ohio River, killed 46 people.

Could Mothman possibly be connected to a banshee in some way? With the strange squeaking sound, weird electronic occurrences, other odd sightings, and death in Point Pleasant, I think this should be looked into more.

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.
