YouTube - Meet the cryptozoologists

Earthcast-Report with Dr. Jeffrey Meldrum on new BIgfoot evidence - AOL VideoYouTube - Episode 124: Bigfoot Discovery Museum Show

Nite Callers/National Geographic/Coast to Coast A.M. Tomorrow...

On Nite Callers, Laurie, Lauren and Luke welcome Todd Standing to their show, beginning at 7:00 EST/6:00 Central.


For those who have National Geographic Channel, there is a new special titled American Paranormal: Bigfoot (U.K. title: Mystery 360: Bigfoot Revealed) airing, featuring Jeff Meldrum, John Mionzcynski and Bill Munns, beginning at 8:00 EST/7:00 Central.


Finally, on Coast to Coast A.M., beginning late-night Sunday at 1:00 A.M. EST/12:00 A.M. Central, it will be a Bigfoot Special, focusing on the Native American legends. The guests will be (in order) Kathy Strain for the first hour, then David Paulides and Harvey Pratt for the remaining time.


Could it be? Daniel Rainsong claims to have photographed a bird long held to be extinct. Rainsong supposedly has photographed the Ivory-billed Woodpecker in the southern Sabine River basin, and ornithologists and bird lovers of all stripes are holding their collective breaths awaiting the release of the photographs. Has this marvelous bird risen from the ashes of extinction? Elsewhere, a story we carried here yesterday about a photograph of an unsavory beast in England may have run afoul of some eagle-eyed cryptid chasers at Cryptozoology Online, as reported in The Beast of Buckshaw. Hmmmmmmm.

Breaking: Living Ivory-Billed Woodpecker Photographed!

Tim Binnall visits with one of cryptozoology's favorite people, Adam Davies, author of Extreme Expeditions: Travel Adventures Stalking the World's Mystery Animals. Davies, whom Binnall calls "(o)ne of cryptozoology's most daring researchers", had some remarkable adventures while in the field during 2009, traveling to Nepal in search of the Yeti and to Sumatra looking for the Orang Pendek. Davies describes his journeys during this downloadable podcast. Meanwhile, something that has been terrorizing residents near Leyland, Lancashire, England, has now been captured on film, as seen in the report Pictured: The Mystery 'Buckshaw Beast' That is Savaging Animals and Terrorizing Villagers. Elsewhere, Loren Coleman reveals a unique gift for Valentine's Day that could benefit a great cause, as you'll find, with images, in For A Good Cause: Buy a Pink Sasqwatch.

What to Make of the Yowie? Tetrapod Zoology
Darren Naish gives what must be the best review yet of Tony Healy and Paul Cropper's examination of the legends and lore of Australia's "wild man," The Yowie: In Search of Australia's Bigfoot. Naish's treatment of the work, including his own statements, show he hasn't thrown out the idea of an unrecognized Australian hominid or hominoid. With many images. Naish's excellent review hasn't gone unnoticed by Loren Coleman, either, as Coleman presents a series of videos and other images in Awash In Yowies Aplenty, Mates!. How widespread the reports of hairy wild men actually are is further pointed up by Coleman's Bulgaria's Bogus Bigfoot: Old Snow Walker Hoax. With video.

Boggy Creek Remake Not A Remake

Anecdotal evidence… and a thank you

Review: Monsterquest: 1-20-10

This episode is titled Hillbilly Beast, about the Sasquatch in Kentucky

The Bluegrass State is hill country, according to the narration

From the initial preview, it appears the Kentucky "Bird-Squatch" will be examined'

Dark. hairy creature, 8-10 feet tall, black eyes in day, yellow-orange at night

Fall of 1990, Amy and John Long went to park, and had an audio encounter with something (they saw a hairy creature by flashlight).

It was theorized that it might have been closing in on a deer

Tim Farmer, with Kentucky Fish and Wildlife, is skeptical of the sightings

He believes these may be sightings of black bears

He also believes the number of hunters would make the existence of an unknown creature unlikely, even with all the trail cams in the forests

The September 2009 "Bird-Squatch" photo is examined and the owner of the trail-cam interviewed

In this area, the expedition team gathers.

Near Henderson, on the Ohio River

Mark Peterson is a member of the team

They have set up a trail-cam themselves

They also deploy an infrared camera attached to a mini-chopper (the same folks from the Ohio Grassman episode)

They believe the creature is nocturnal, so they wait to deploy the camera till nightfall

They launch the camera outside the town of Geneva, Ky.

Because of the history of sightings in that area, Peterson believes they are in the right area

Many early legends of the Kentucky Beast go back to Daniel Boone. Boone is said to have killed a large hairy beast (10-feet tall)

A Native Cherokee tells of the connection of his people to the legends

The man said his grandfather had two hogs go missing by being picked up under each arm by the hairy beast

Ken Mahoney, the owner of the trail-cam which took the "Bird-Squatch" photo, is interviewed.

A Peter Schmitz is called in to analyze the photo

A comparison is done with Ken's son Kenny Jr.

The team is investigating the strange sounds made by allegedly the creature

Joe Fox, a bio-acoustician is interviewed about his impressions

He goes outside Lawrenceburg, Kentucky to do an investigation

The devices being used by Fox detect infrasound as well as possibly noises

The expedition team is utilizing local guides to take them on the Ohio River for more searching

Witness Bob Ganyard went to check a boat ramp, and it seemed to suit him quite well. His van wound up stuck in the mud

He says he felt something hit his van which rocked it. He did catch a glimpse of what appeared to be a hairy beast

He is still terrified by the experience even today.

The expedition team continues its search, where the Cherokee reveals he found a strange tooth

The tooth appears to be a double-root, which would rule out a canine.

Farmer is still skeptical and believes the sounds have a logical explanation, which seems plausible

Outside Lawrenceburg, Fox's team attempts to do call blasting to provoke a response.

They hear what appears to be a high-pitched scream to their south

More witnesses are interviewed, more possible sounds are heard, the mystery photo is examined, and what is found is...well, I won't spoil it. This was not exactly one of the more stellar efforts of Monsterquest compared to other episodes. I would rate this one about 2 1/2 out of 5.

Sasquatch Experience Tomorrow...

Sean and I welcome Melissa Hovey to the show to chat about a little of everything, maybe even sightings in Texas and maybe Ohio, beginning at 9:00 EST/8:00 Central. And as always, we encourage you to please tune in and support great research.
Loren Coleman has images and more about an arachnid found in only one place, so far, and measuring up to the claim it's "one of the biggest spiders ever found in the Mideast". Meanwhile, Craig Woolheater has a programming note for tonight's television viewing in New MonsterQuest Episode: Hillbilly Beast.
