Bob H and Phillip M explain how they pulled off the biggest hoax in history.

Posted by Rob Gaudet on January 19, 2013 at 3:00pmComments 
Those individuals who seek the truth stop at nothing, leave no stone un-covered in it's pursuit. Do you believe Bob Gimlin and Roger Pattersons accounts of what happened in Bluff Creek? If you have not listened to all sides of the story, perhaps…

Searching For The Mogollon Monster Phantoms and Monsters
Something's stalking the American southwest and there's tons of evidence. It's known to Amerindians since ancient times to the modern day. Among the evidence, there's an account from Finding Bigfoot and their close encounter with the red-haired stinky varmint. Lon Strickler's on the case of this unique beast. Karl Shuker has another astonishing tale, Going Ape About The Koolookamba! Their existence isn't doubtful, several examples have been in captivity, but their true nature remains up in the air. Karl covers chimeras, crossbreeds, and chimpanzees as he awaits further developments in this curious case. Over at Zoologger, Michael Marshall has a dispatch on The First Solar Powered Vertebrate! Turns outAmbystoma maculatum's symbiotic relationship with algae is key to the survival of their eggs. Speculation abounds that other aquatic critters do the same thing. No less strange is Jack Springing Up In Warrington. John Rimmer finds an astonishingly recent account of Spring-Heeled Jack who supposedly vanished at the turn of the century.

In an interview in Esquire, the Transformers bombshell reveals that she believes in aliens, leprechauns, and the loch ness monster, and considers Bigfoot her "celebrities," whatever that means. We are told that she has yet to make an appearance at the International Cryptozoology Museum, however. Today, a town meeting takes place in the Louisiana home of the the legendary Fouke Monster for the TV show "Finding Bigfoot." Lyle Blackburn, author of The Beast of Boggy Creek, is helping Matt Moneymaker on this episode, which asks:Can Finding Bigfoot Find the Fouke Monster?

Kelly Milner Halls' comment on my review of her book In Search of Sasquatch

Kelly Milner Halls commented on her Wall post.
Kelly wrote: "Henry, how great is this? Thank you so much for writing the review and for sharing it here. I'd love it if you spread the word about the book. I think it's a great introduction for readers of all ages, even if I did write it for kids. You totally made my day! Thanks again!"

What's attacking dogs in Neosho, Missouri? Residents are shaken up and understandably so as several of their dogs have been attacked and even killed by something lurking in the woods. Whatever it is, it seems to be attacking the dogs out of either defense or pure sport, as it leaves the dogs and does not drag them off or eat them. Our guess is an out of place, frightened bear but there's just enough mystery surrounding this to consider other stranger possibilities...meanwhile, over in Wisconsin, people have reported seeing 7-foot-tall 'werewolves'. As if that wasn't enough, they also reported a UFO sighting along with the werewolf encounter. Paul Dale Roberts considers the possibility that the Werewolves of Shawano County, Wisconsin may have more to do with the 'OZ effect', sometimes reported in conjunction with UFO encounters, that leaves witness in a dream-like state and hallucinating. ..Nick Redfern gives us examples of high-strangeness from the UK, with this report on Primitive Humans in the UK, with encounters both in the wild and during a seance, of all places. Micah Hanks creeps us out a bit closer to home with this look at Abduction and Anomalous Non-Alien Kidnappings (Bigfoot?) that are a lot less rare than you'd like to think they are.

Book Reviews: New Turn in Russian Snowman Research by Igor Burtsev/In Search of Sasquatch by Kelly Milner Halls

The newest book by Igor Burtsev is a follow-up on his colleague Dmitri Bayanov's three excellent books In The Footsteps of the Russian Snowman, America's Bigfoot: Fact, Not Fiction and Bigfoot Research: The Russian Vision, and is really well-done. It profiles the Russian research into the Russian Wildman since the 1950's, spearheaded by the late Dr. Boris Porschnev and Marie Jeanne Koffmann and also by Pyotr Smolin, as well as Burtsev and Bayanov themselves. It also profiles the research done in the United States into the Sasquatch/Bigfoot and how it correlates with the Russian research. We see for the first time Igor's full record of his visit to America in 2004 in Tennessee investigating the Carter Farm alleged happenings, as well as photos of what appeared to be possible markers and intricate tree constructions both in Russia and the U.S. The book concludes with more recent research from 2010 in Russia, where expedition members seemed to find some pretty interesting evidence. On a scale from 1-10, this book gets a pretty solid 8 1/2.


This book by a Spokane, Washington schoolteacher and author is great for kids-of ALL ages!!! It gives us a basic rundown of some past history of sightings, as well as profiling researchers like Paul Graves, Finding Bigfoot's Cliff Barackman, Derek Randles of the Olympic Project, Dr. Jeff Meldrum, Bob Gimlin, Tom Yamarone and other researchers. It also looks at modern technologies being used in the search, as well as looking at tree twists and breaks attributed to 'Squatches, along with the famous Patterson/Gimlin Film and Bill Munns' research into it. There is also the language  consideration via R. Scott Nelson. There is also some great color photography, with several pictures from the Yakima Bigfoot Round-Up, which Kelly attended. All in all, a short but sweet book, one that I highly recommend, especially since I know about 95% of the  people profiled in the book!!! This one gets a 10 out of 10!!!

Outside writer Katie Heaney goes in search of the truth behind the elusive Minnesota Ice Man and comes up empty handed, as most do when trying to answer the "Is he or Isn't He Real" question about the frozen man in a box. Another enduring mystery that is slightly easier to unravel (i.e. true) is that of Homo floresiensis, or the real life Hobbits. Now Evidence Shows That “Hobbits” Were A Separate Species, which adds a lot more fuel to the fiery debate. And finally, Cryptomundo drifts over into the land of high-strangeness with these tales of Elfland and Melonheads.

Mixing two fringe sciences isn't conducive to increasing acceptance in mainstream circles. Making a distinction between the two fields is Matt Bille respectfully disagreeing with Nick Redfern by insisting on consistency in definitions and approaches. To say Tim Holmes of the Elmira Bigfoot Watch disagrees with SpikeTV's approach to tracking sasquatch is an understatement. Keeping tabs on his buddy, Greg Newkirk shares the news of this "10 Million Dollar Bigfoot Bounty" Contestant Getting Canned And Spilling The Beans in a frank and honest fashion. ThoughSpikeTV wants a dead sasquatch, there was a Petition To Protect Bigfoot. Henry Peterson runs down the relevant legislation and discussing whether such a petition is necessary. Across the pond, Glasgow Boy doesn't want Bigfoot to hog the headlines. After perusing one of Dale Drinnon's latest pieces, GB shares Some Thoughts On The Surgeon's Photograph and how it applies to the second surgeon's picture.

Review: Finding Bigfoot 1-13-13

This was a fair episode at best, set in the Sportsman's Paradise of Louisiana. They went to the town of Zwolle where they were invited to a cook-out and people share their sighting stories. No hard evidence, but some possible sightings. They conducted night operations where they heard wolves, which are prodigious in the East Texas/Western Louisiana corridor. They left Bobo out there for solo operations, and they went and interviewed some witnesses from the cook-out. Bobo got an interesting sound, but it could have been a wolf or coyote. The team members interview four witnesses, conduct one more night operation, and find...well, really, nothing worth mentioning. A very disappointing episode, which I give about a 5 1/2 stars out of 10. This was the Season Finale of the third season, but next week they immediately begin the fourth Season, with a jaunt to Colorado, 10:00 EST/9:00 Central on Animal Planet. Check local listings for time and channel.

Man's best friend is poised to be a sasquatch's worst enemy. Guy Edwards caught this gem in the Tyler Morning Telegraph about an upcoming east Texas 'squatching' expedition, courtesy of Universal K-9. Catch Faith Harper's rundown of this plan so crazy it just. might. work. along with two videos of dogs being trained to track Bigfoot. Dr. Karl Shuker appears to be following in Dr. Seuss's footsteps as he presents theHippoturtleox - The Horned Monster Of Tibet's Lake Duobuzhe. Dr. Shuker has tantalizing details about odd critters that defy conventional zoology, applying his erudation to possible suspects which are just as unexpected as these accounts.
