Sasquatch Stories from North Dakota

Grand Forks Herald is reporting on Bigfoot activity in North Dakota:

"Ellendale, ND -- After mysterious tracks showed up near Ellendale, North Dakota.
"Some thought it was evidence of bigfoot, others dismissed it.
"A letter was sent to the WDAY TV station anonymously, it claims to know exactly where the puzzling tracks came from.
"But, a bigfoot enthusiast says his new chapter in the Ellendale Bigfoot saga doesn't mean it's case closed.
"'Someone saw him, and he left behind a trail and tacks,' said Christopher Bauer, Bigfoot Tracker.
"Hoaxes, monsters and coverups.
"After finding massive sasquatch tracks near Ellendale, tracker Christopher Bauer is certain there's something on the prairie, but an anonymous letter sent to WDAY claims the tracks are man made.
"It reads: 'This is not a hoax, it was supposed to be a prank.'
"The letter details how the writer allegedly went for a booze-fueled stroll on a pair of homemade Sasquatch slippers.
"It refutes Bauer's claims, but he refuses to budge on his stance about the undiscovered ape.
"'This is a real animal,' said Bauer.
"What do other real animals of North Dakota need to survive?
"Large mammal expert Nicole Lee of the Red River Zoo says many have adaptations to help.
"'With the very hot summer and very cold winters they grow thick coats in the winter time,' said Lee.
"'Large, hairy, ugly monster,' said Bauer.
"Hairy, check, but huge mammals in the region like moose need dozens of pounds of food per day.
"'Especially  during the winter months, those food resources are going to be scarce,' said Lee.
"Not exactly a vote of confidence for a giant ape.
"There are some inconsistencies in the letter.
"Bauer says he followed the tracks for miles, much further than the anonymous letter claims the tracks went.
"He believes the letter is a hoax and the tracks couldn't be faked.
"He also claims the marks were made with a four foot stride, nearly double a human step.
"Bauer claims anyone trying to walk in the faux-feet would leave heel marks, which he never found.
"So is bigfoot living in Dickey County?
"We'll let you decide if there's anything skulking around the prairie.
"Bauer tells us he hopes whoever wrote the letter will come forward.
"He also sent me pictures of additional tracks he found in the area, which he says are much smaller, suggesting another bigfoot is walking around."

So are the tracks a hoax? Is the letter saying they're a hoax a hoax? Is Bigfoot currently roaming Dickey County? What do you think?

The only thing I can say is this is a crap news report.

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.
