Oklahoma Dogmen

It was a nice autumn night in 1981. Two men were traveling along Highway 3 from Atoka to Antlers, Oklahoma. As they were nearing the Muddy Boggy Bridge, which is over the Muddy Boggy River, they saw a strange creature on the right side of the road. They said it was just standing there, not moving, and it was on two legs. They said it was 7 feet tall and looked like an Olympic athlete and was covered in short, black fur. They compared it to Anubis, the Egyptian Jackal-Headed god of the dead.

That is only one of the many Dogman sightings from Oklahoma. Another sighting occurred in 1993, when a man named Brandon and his friend were driving in a Toyota on a secluded dirt road. They stopped to complain about life, as all people do, when they heard a strange noise. The creature had red eyes, and the man said he felt like it looked through him.

He said it was 7 feet tall and had to bend over to look in the window. "It was black and had a furry head and pointy, erect ears," Brandon said. "It was strong enough to shake the car. I expected him to bite me and have his mouth cover my shoulder, I mean the entire shoulder blade to mid-chest, that's how big its mouth was." He tried to get into the passenger seat, but couldn't because he had his seatbelt on. When he looked back over, the creature was gone. His friend did not see the creature, but had felt the truck rock.

The last Okalhoma sighting I will mention (there are still many others, however) occurred one summer evening in 1998. It was about 11 pm when the two witnesses saw the creature when they were driving home. The driver swerved and barely avoided hitting a large creature holding onto a tree and leaning forward, like it was going to jump on the car. They were certain it was not a bear.

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.
