The Adventures of Captain William Hitchens: Encounters With Early Cryptozoology

Amidst the forested regions of Africa’s western Wembare Plains, there are many stories told of strange animals. Well-known in the local African traditions, the stories of encounters with these creatures remain obscure to the minds of people in most other parts of the world, save only for the occasions when foreigners have had experiences of their own that would shake their skepticism of such folk beliefs. It was in such a place–the Simbiti woodlands–in the year 1900 that Captain William Hitchens had his own encounter with a pair of mysterious animals, which were unlike anything he had seen in Africa, or anyplace else.  “They were Continue Reading

Scotland’s Mysterious Clashindarroch Beast Caught on Camera

Last year, sheep farmers in Scotland were horrified by a series of brutal sheep mutilations for which no definitive cause was found. Naturally, it was immediately speculated that some sort of large, unidentified feline species was behind the attacks. In the United Kingdom, many of the recurring cryptid sightings revolve around mysterious big cats, feline creatures far too large to be normally associated with the British isles. Like most cryptids, however, these mystery cats have the seemingly magical ability to be photographed only in low resolution, blurry images. There are several famous named examples of these mystery cats, from the Beast Continue Reading

“You Have Shot My Friend.” This Early American Sasquatch Story is One of the Eeriest

It is arguably one of the most unusual stories in the already strange mythos surrounding the North American Sasquatch. The account, given in 1929 by a man named Charley Victor, is also one of the few to suggest that the “creatures” spoke a language… and one shared by humans. Victor was a member of the Skwah Reserve in the 1920s. According to the British Columbia Assembly of First Nations, The Skwah First Nation (sometimes also called the Skwah Band) is a band government of the Stó:lõ or “Staulo” people, and part of the Chillukweyuk Tribe, near the eponymously named City of Chilliwack, Continue Reading

Bizarre and Frightening Accounts of Bigfoot Attacks

One of the most well-known and widely discussed cryptids of all time are the mysterious hairy, ape-like giants of North America, which are variously called the Bigfoot, Sasquatch, Skunk Ape, Grassman, and other regional names. Seen all over the continent, they may differ in appearance or behavior, but one thing that is usually consistent is that for all of their size and strength they seem to be mostly peaceful and benevolent denizens of the forest, much more likely to run away or hide than to confront. Yet there have been many accounts from at least the 19th century all the way Continue Reading

Missouri Man Tells Daytime Bigfoot Encounter

Miss. — A Missouri man has come forward with a claim that he encountered a Bigfoot creature. The man, whose name was kept anonymous, told the BFRO that he was hunting with his son when the biped showed up in October 2016. He claims that he was near a pond in Reynolds County when silence suddenly took over. “It was around 5 p.m.,” he said. “The squirrels disappeared, birds became silent, so I started to become concerned of human activity.” He goes on to say he was scanning the area to see if he could see people in he area when Continue Reading

‘Dinosaur’ Shows Up in South Carolina

Columbia resident Anita Sullivan told Cryptozoology News she was driving with her husband on Interstate 20 on Nov 30 when they came upon the animal at around 12.30 p.m.. “We were headed eastbound, crossing the Broad River bridge. I was just looking out of the window causally and just happened to see what at first looked like a large snake moving slowly down the river, with his body moving slightly under the water,” said Sullivan. “It was coming north towards the bridge and it looked to the left as it Continue Reading

Alleged Frozen Bigfoot Head Unveiled in Video

The man who showed the world his “Frozen Sasquatch Foot” earlier this year is back with a piece of the beast that is even bigger and better than the giant foot … a head he claims was once on a living Sasquatch before his father killed the huge creature in 1953, cut it up and froze it until his son found people who would believe the story or needed to raise some money. That day has arrived. “My Bigfoot frozen head video is doing good, 30,000 views in 2 days but that’s not good enough everyone needs to know Sasquatch is Continue Reading

Mysterious Creatures and Bizarre Dash Cam Footage

It is a dark night and the landscape leaps out of the pitch blackness into the beams of the car’s headlights, everything else just an indistinct blur of greys and half-glimpsed shapes, perhaps frosted by moonlight, perhaps not. The trees crowd around the road in the passing light as well, seeming to reach their flickering tendrils and fingers outwards overhead, and there is a sense that anything could be crouched or lurking out in the gloom out there beyond this illuminated patch. Then up ahead something lurches, scurries, or skitters out of the murk, something the likes of which you have Continue Reading

Nazis, Antarctica, and Bigfoot

Nazis. Has there ever been a greater villain or evil force out there? Throughout history they have not only served to be the perpetrators of horrific acts, but also the target of numerous, countless conspiracy theories and strange tales.

Among the many are the rumors that the Nazis had a secretive, covert base in the cold depths of the continent of Antarctica, a tale which in itself has spread out to cover many facets of the weird. Yet there is one account in particular Continue Reading

A Veterinarian “Meets” A Monster

A couple of days ago I wrote an article here at Mysterious Universe titled “A Classic Encounter: Nessie On Land, 1933.” It was focused on the strange and controversial story of a Mr. and Mrs. Spicer, who encountered one of the legendary Loch Ness Monsters not in the waters of the mystery-filled loch, but actually on land – in 1933. In part I said: “… George Spicer described the animal as being hideous, an absolute affront against nature. What particularly struck Spicer – and which provoked his comments – was the way the thing moved. It did not do so like Continue Reading

Paranormal Pterodactyls In The U.K.?

Imagine driving, late at night, across the foggy moors of England and coming across what looks like nothing less than a living, breathing pterodactyl! From 1982 to 1983, a wave of sightings of such a creature – presumed extinct for million of years – occurred in an area called the Pennines, also known as the “backbone of England.” It’s a story that, in much lengthier fashion, can collectively be found in Jenny Randles’ excellent 2002 book, Supernatural Pennines and in issue 9 of UFO Brigantia, a much-missed magazine of the 1980s and 1990s and which was edited and published by Andy Continue Reading

Three-Fingered Alien Mummies: Eggs!

Can a day go by without an update on the three-fingered allegedly alien mummies of Peru? As the cries of “Hoax!” increase, so apparently do the new releases of fee-for-view videos from Gaia.com and journalist Jamie Maussan, the go-to guy for all things 3-fingered. Yesterday, it was revealed that the mysterious cave where the mummies – at least five at last count – were supposedly found must be kept secret but the identity of the finder was revealed to be a guy named Mario, whose identity apparently must also be kept secret. However, new discoveries about the mummies are coming fast Continue Reading
