"Big Black Cat" Seen in St. Albans June 9th

(Bardrock, wikimedia)


There has been yet another black panther report this month. This new one comes from last Friday, June 9th.

The Welwyn Hatfield Times is reporting on a sighings of a "big black cat" that was spotted in Hertfordshire last Firday. The article reads:

"A jogger has reported spotting 'a big black cat' along the Alban Way in St Albans.
"Alistair Divall, of Old London Road, saw what he believed to be a panther while was was out jogging, around 9.30am.
"He said: 'It was about 10 or 15 feet in front of me, moving slowly, and then it turned and looked at me briefly.
"'It disappeared completely and there were people down at the bottom with their dogs.'
"Alistair, who is employed as a TV presenter and broadcaster, has worked at Paradise Wildlife Park, where he said he learned more about big cats.
"He said: 'That's definitely what I saw and I am completely sane. I can tell the difference between a cat and this big cat.
"'Funnily enough I wasn't scared.
"'It didn't threaten me in the slightest.
"'It was just to say 'Oh hello, you're there. I am gone now' and it loped off.
"'They're very clever because they can disappear and they can be sitting looking at you and you won't be able to see them.
"'I have done some work at Paradise Wildlife Park and you learn some things by doing that.
"'They don't tend to attack humans until they're being attacked themselves.
"'I am definitely pleased I have seen it to be honest.'
"Multiple eyewitnesses claim to have seen big cats in St Albans, Welwyn Hatfield and the surrounding areas.
"A woman said she saw a big, cream-colored cat off Hatfield Road last month, and in January two Oaklands College staff members saw 'a large, sandy-colored cat.'
"Four years ago scratch marks were found on agree after a 'huge animal' was seen near Welwyn, and a big black cat was spotted near Luton Airport last year.
"In March 2017, in Wheathampstead, a driver thought he saw a panther bounding through fields, and a dog-walker recently found the mutilated corpse of a muntjac deer nearby."
 
As I said in my earlier post on big cat sightings today, it doesn't seem like they will stop anytime soon.

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.
