Bigfoot Reported in New Jersey

A new story has come out of New Jersey about a supposed Bigfoot sighting. Yesterday, Fox 29 news ran an article titled "Was Bigfoot sighted in the New Jersey Pine Barrens?"  that reads:

BROWNS MILL, N.J. (WTXF) - Way out in the woods in the New Jersey Pine Barrens, Dave and his wife, who didn't want to share her name, spotted something they couldn't explain. The woman claims she saw Bigfoot.
'Whatever this was had, literally, leaped across the entire road. It was about six feet tall. Like a light colored hair, like a deer, but I'm like it certainly wasn't a deer because it had its legs splayed and it almost looked like a ballerina leaping across the road,' said the woman.
It was off-road near Browns Mills. She says she saw the man-beast in the rearview mirror. She was always a skeptic, but no more.
'Like, even to this day, I am still trying to process exactly what it was that I saw. It's just hard for me to fathom it, I guess you could say,' the woman said.  
They told Eric Spinner immediately. The New Jersey representative for the National Bigfoot Field Researchers Organization displayed a Bigfoot footprint casting he said he found in New Jersey.
FOX 29's Hank Flynn asked, 'Do you consider this credible?'
'I do, for a couple of reasons. Not only is it uncommon for somebody to report seeing it in their rearview mirror, as she did, but also because they weren't out looking for Bigfoot. They were just out enjoying a nice day out in the woods with the dog. Four-wheeling in the woods. And this happened,' Spinner explained.
The Pines offer food, water and wilderness enough to hide in - the same traits as other places with reported sightings. The number of New Jersey sightings might be a surprise.
'Dozens of sightings over the years. There are reports that come into our website, into our database, that aren't even on our actual sighting database because they're either still being investigated or deemed as being either hoaxes or unreportable,' Spinner said.
They call it Big Red Eye in North Jersey. Some in South Jersey think they're seeing the Jersey Devil. Either way, the legend is alive and well. Dave's wife was skeptical, but seeing is believing.
I find it strange that Eric Spinner finds this report credible because the witness saw the creature in the rearview mirror. Wouldn't something you see for a split second be even harder to identify if it was seen that way? I feel like this could easily have been a misidentification or maybe even a person.

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.
