"Help Round Rock Parks and Rec. Find Bigfoot"

I was pretty convinced this whole Bigfoot thing going on around Round Rock, Texas is all a hoax to try to draw people in, and this article which appeared on Community Impact Newspaper confirms that:

"The city of Round Rock Parks and Recreation Department has stumbled across some monstrous means to encourage children to head outdoors this summer. Popping up in parks and along Brushy Creek Trail are signs reading 'Big Foot Xing' and warnings of Bigfoot sightings in the area.
"The Parks and Recreation Department started posting about Bigfoot on social media in early June, releasing photo evidence of hair and footprints. It eventually released video evidence on Facebook, encouraging Bigfoot followers to get out and look for clues.
"'People are responding to this so well and so quickly, we thought we would have to do two to even six posts before anyone paid attention, but after the first post it went media firestorm,' Round Rock Parks and Recreation spokesperson Roger Heaney said.
"Some parents have jumped into the search wholeheartedly, commenting about how excited their kids will be and posting to the Parks and Recreation Facebook page about taking their kids out 'squatching.' Others have posted negative responses calling the evidence unnecessary and posting signs of wasting tax dollars.
"'A lot of what's been produced has been produced in-house so it's really not costing anything,' Heaney said. 'Most anything we're doing is sponsored and or donated by local businesses. We've really got an outpouring of support from local businesses who want to be a part of it because they believe in the cause.'
"There were also commenters calling the whole thing a 'hoax' and pointing out the use of old footage and photos.
"'Residents have responded back to those comments saying they love it and that definitely outweighs… those folks who [want to] be critical,' Heaney said.
"Rumors have already started about possible Loch Ness sightings [They saw a Scottish lake in one of their lakes? - TH] in one of the lakes, and a resident contacted the Parks and Recreation department reporting what appeared to be a Chupacabra [Probably meaning a mangey coyote, not a chupacabra - TH], Heaney said. Residents should be on the lookout for upcoming videos from Round Rock Police Chief Allen Banks, City Manager Laurie Hadley and Mayor Craig Morgan, all of whom will address the alleged wildlife sightings.
"Heaney said the signs and social media promotions are intended to help encourage people to get out of the house and take advantage of the parks and recreational amenities in Round Rock.
"'Our hope is that they will kind of re-fall in love with the outdoors and activities outdoors and we can in some small way create a more healthy balance for them' Heaney said.
"On July 15, the Parks and Recreation Department will team up with Searching for Bigfoot, a national organization specializing in all things Sasquatch, to conduct a citywide search expedition at Old Settlers Park. The event will be free and attendees can be sure they will catch at least a glimpse of Bigfoot, Heaney said."
The 'evidence' from RRP&R
that kicked this whole thing off

If the people of Round Rock want the kids to be more interested in nature, why don't they just take them out into parks and other wild places sometimes, instead of faking Bigfoot stories? And bringing in the "Searching for Bigfoot" team isn't good either. Tom Biscardi basically heads that and you know it is a hoax once he is involved, as he has been a central player in some large ones, multiple times.

And now we might have some fake "chupacabra" and lake monster stories from Texas too. Great.

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…
