Lancaster Commentary: What happened to mystery in the world? (KNXV-TV) (blog)

A North Carolina resident reveals the strange happenings around his rural property near the Yadkin River, including the sighting of "a pair of large red-orange eyes."

A case of an out-of-place creature killed when struck on a Connecticut highway last month has turned out to be a case of a way out-of-place creature. The first confirmed wild mountain lion found in Connecticut in a century turns out to have made its way from South Dakota, a distance of around 1500 miles. Connecticut officials traced DNA from droppings and hair samples showing the big cat's progress across the nation, a journey reported as "one of the longest ever recorded for a land mammal." What drove this male cougar to trek from the Black Hills of South Dakota to Connecticut? That question - and other more important ones - lead to commentary from Director of the Centre for Fortean Zoology Jon Downes in The Latest on the Connecticut Puma. Has information been withheld in what Downes has referred to as the "Connecticut Cougar Caper"? Another large feline has shown up where it wasn't supposed to be, too, as indicated in a report from Cheshire, England, found in 'Big Cat' Spotted at Lymm Rugby Club. And there's even a report of a large cat seen as a harbinger of doom ever since the days of President Abraham Lincoln, as Shawn Lindseth explains inAwesome or Off-Putting: Washington DC’s Demon Cat. Elsewhere, illustrations accompany Rob Morphy's treatise on The World’s Strangest Lake Monsters, Loren Coleman remembers the influence a book about denizens of the inland deeps has had on him in Rethinking Lake Monster Traditions and Craig Woolheater spotlights the work of Bob and Kathy Strain in Calling Bigfoot: Will He Answer?

Footage that appears to have been filmed early last year near Carbondale, PA, is alleged to show a white-haired Bigfoot that was reportedly prowling around the rural neighborhood. Craig Woolheater gathered several analyses of the footage and comparisons with other alleged Bigfoot footage. What do you think?

From the maverick science files: Jennifer Viegas reveals that previous findings of "human/Neanderthal interbreeding" have been confirmed by new research that shows "some of the human X chromosome originates from Neanderthals, but only in people of non-African heritage." Does this make modern non-African heritage humans hybrids? And more than hybridization occupies the mind of a commentator known more for her revelations concerning UFOs, alien abductions and general paranormal subjects. Chris Holly discourses on the creation of chimeras in the laboratories of the world, sometimes with little to no oversight, and the possible horrific outcome of such genetic manipulation, all put together in When Science Visits Frankenstein Thinking!
