Claims of a Nessie Cover-Up on Google Maps

Google Maps has been a favorite of conspiracy theorists, UFO hunters, and cryptid hunters for a long time. Many people have also tried to use it to find a Loch Ness Monster. Now, there are apparently more claims of Nessie on Maps going around, and this time, people think Google is trying to cover it up!
The disappearing monster?

According to Sputnik International:

Sightings of what is affectionately referred to as 'Nessie' climbed to a record-breakking number of 11 last year, with many partaking in contests for the best visual proof of its existence.
According to The Daily Star, Google Maps has been blamed for blurring the spots where the elusive Loch Ness monster allegedly popped up. 
The popular navigation app and service has been used by conspiracy theorists to prove that many phenomena, including those connected with Nessie sightings, really exist. At some point, conspirators believed they 'had struck gold' while searching the mountainous Scottish land, The Daily Star wrote.
Legends around Loch Ness claim that the great lake contains a huge monster, with a number of sightings registered annually.
The latest one occurred as a tourist from the US state of Idaho reported seeing, while holidaying in Scotland, a few large grey shapes moving in the water near the Urquhart Castle jetty.
Sightings of the Loch Ness Monster reached a record-breaking number last year. The 11 sightings, registered in the official 2017 sightings book, have been the highest number this century.
Interestingly, more and more people are showing interest in Nessie-related events, as competitions for the best Nessie sighting are increasingly introduced across Scotland, with the public invited to even write books on whether the Loch Ness monster truly exists.
Of course there will be more interest if monetary rewards are offered for pictures of Nessie… the woman who "won" last year got £1,500 for her blurry picture of a blob! And all the other "sightings" were waves or hoaxes as well.

Regarding the "Google Maps cover up," that's just conspiracy theorists and believers attempting to use an unidentifiable "something" as "evidence" for their monster.

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.
