Mysterious "Ape" Filmed in California

A strange "ape," and possibly a Bigfoot, has been caught on camera near La Cracenta, California.

KTLA 5 reports:

"The California Department of Fish and Wildlife is investigating after a mysterious, ape-like creature was captured on cellphone video recently in the foothills near a hiking trail in La Crescenta, not for from the 210 Freeway.
"Jake Gardiner, who works near the area, spotted the animal while taking a stroll during during the woods on his lunch break last week. {Author note - Assuming this should be "taking a stroll through the woods during his lunch break."}
"'At first, I heard a bunch of strange noises in the trees. Figured it was just some types of bird or something like that,' Gardiner told KTLA in an interview on Tuesday. 
"A still uneasiness came over him as he began to feel like something was out there watching him.
"So, Gardiner pulled out hi cellphone and began recording as he tried to determine whether anything was out there.
"At first, he couldn't see anything out of the ordinary. It wasn't until he checked the footage a second time that he noticed something unusual.
"However, he wasn't quite sure what it was he that he had captured on the video.
"'You can definitely see a torso and four limbs moving around and swinging around,' Gardiner said. 'It's a pretty obvious kind of motion.'
"Officials from the state's Department of Fish and Wildlife don't know what exactly the animal is either, but they have an idea.
"'We think that it's a pretty good possibility that it is some kind of ape,' said Andrew Hughan, a spokesman for the department.
"If the creature is in fact an ape, it could represent a serious public safety concern, according to officials.
"'These animals are incredibly strong. And they can very easily kill or seriously injure a person because -- if it turns out to be an ape -- this animal is scared, hungry, out if its element,' Hughan told KTLA.
"It's possible that it was someone's 'illegal' pet at some point, he said after being asked how an ape could've ended up in that area.
"'People import the animals as illegal exotic pets. Now, that's not great, but what happens is the animals can get out of control and they either escape or they get too unruly and the owners just let them go,' Hughan said.
"Officials say while there's no reason to be alarmed, they are still warning people not to go into the wooded area looking for the creature."

But what if its an "ape" (sasquatch) that is in its element, Mr. Hughan?

What do you think?

As of right now, the only place I've found the video is on the news sites, so you can watch it on KTLA 5. But if I find it on YouTube sometime, I'll add it to this post.

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.
