2000: Another Man Shares Encounter with ‘Pterodactyl’

A Goshen, Indiana man says he and a group of friends came across an unidentified flying animal that resembled a “pterodactyl” with a wingspan of approximately 12 feet. The eyewitness, a 39-year-old professional trainer who provided his full name and contact information but asked to remain anonymous, sent the following report to Cryptozoology News: “I just read your article about the dinosaur winged creature a man saw and that brought back some interesting memories. We were taking a night hike to a local dam. It was my second year college at Goshen College, back in 2000. I was with a few people and a friend of mine who lived within a 3-minute walk to the dam. We always liked to take night hikes, especially on full moon nights. This was around early to mid September and we could remember the moon being super bright and big. The dam area […] Read More

2018: Michigan Fisherman Takes ‘Bigfoot’ Picture

A man in northern Michigan released a photograph of an alleged Bigfoot creature. The man, who goes by the name of Jack, claims he was on a fishing trip when he came upon the seemingly bipedal animal, which he initially thought to be a bear. “It was about six feet tall and had a human-like figure,” he told Bigfoot Evidence earlier this week, not specifying when the encounter happened. “It had a high-pitch growl. We made eye contact and we both froze in our tracks.” The shadowy figure then reportedly ran off into the woods. Credit: Jack/Bigfoot Evidence “I went back later on and camped there, just to see if I got lucky and get more pictures,” he said. But he turned out empty-handed. Jack believes it was a juvenile Bigfoot, mainly because of its relatively short height. It is not clear why the eyewitness didn’t take a video instead […] Read More

1879-1883: Strange encounters in open waters

When the still sea conspires an armor And her sullen and aborted Currents breed tiny monsters True sailing is dead Awkward instant And the first animal is jettisoned Legs furiously pumping Their stiff green gallop And heads bob up Poise Delicate Pause Consent In mute nostril agony Carefully refined And sealed over –Horse Latitudes, Poem by Jim Morrison. Thalassophobia is the compulsive fear of the sea or sea travel. That also extends to a fear of any large body of water, or what lurks beneath. Most of us land-dwellers have this phobia and for good reasons. We’re the post-Jaws, post-Black Lagoon generation and that usually means that we’ll think twice about taking a dip in a beach or lake. In 1879 an out of place object in the Atlantic waters gave Captain Edwards quite a shock. Three miles off the Rhode Island coast, the fishing vessel, the Amelia, was making its way onto the […] Read More

2018: 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 about human activity.” He goes on to say he was scanning the area to see if he could see people in the area when his eyes came upon “this large black figure”. “It came walking down the other side of this hollower. I thought it was a man, but as it kept walking, I noticed how massive it was,” he explained. The Missouri resident reports that this two-legged creature appeared to notice […] Read More

2017: ‘Dinosaur’ Shows Up in South Carolina

COLUMBIA, S.C. — A dinosaur-like creature was reportedly spotted 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 came up, above the top of the water.” The sighting purportedly lasted about 10 seconds and Sullivan says she was not able to snap a picture of the aquatic being. “I was highly excited and freaked out! I didn’t think to take a picture.” The long-necked animal was […] Read More

2017: Mystery ‘Metal Starfish’ Found Off Rhode Island Coast

The metallic starfish (credit: Peter Brockmann) As fans of Lost will attest, it’s not a good idea to lift a hatch, open a strange door or move an odd object without having some idea of what might happen next. That could be the reason why residents and government officials are in no hurry to remove a seemingly unmovable starfish-shaped metallic object found about 10 feet offshore at low tide on East Beach in Westerly, Rhode Island. Has anyone checked it for numbers? It’s a bit of a mystery. The object resembles a starfish but is made of concrete and metal. And at first, Peter Brockmann, the president of the East Beach Association, was afraid to touch it, worried that it might be a bomb. [embedded content] “We wanted to figure out what it is before we go tugging on it,” Brockmann told The Westerly Sun last week, adding that […] Read More

Calif. — A man in Sacramento County on Friday said he saw an unidentified winged creature. 74-year-old D.R. told Cryptozoology News he was driving on State Route 16 near Rancho Murieta when the incident took place on the night of July 15. “It was around 11:45 p.m.,” said the piano technician. “I was driving home from a performance in Fiddletown, near Plymouth,” he added. The Californian claims that he was driving at around 65 mph when the “huge bird” showed up. “It swooped down from my left and leveled off in front of my vehicle, and flew along in front of me about 20 to 30 feet in front of me. I instinctively hit the brakes when this object appeared in front of our car,” he explained. He didn’t specify who the other person in the vehicle was. The man described the creature as a 30-feet-wide black bird with “features similar […] Read More

2017: Are Mermaids Attacking People In Zimbabwe?

I am always getting a request to cover mermaids and I always reply that if I ever find an interesting story about them I will cover it. And to my surprise, I just recently found one. To most of us in the west mermaids are nothing more than crazy folklore but in other parts of the world especially certain regions in Africa they truly believe that mermaids exist. Not that long ago in Zimbabwe, three boys were herding cattle near a dam when they saw what they thought was a huge fish. So 2 of the boys jumped into the dam hoping to catch it with their bare hands. But this wasn’t a big fish it was a mermaid or a water spirit according to the other boy. He claimed to have seen a mermaid come out of the water, grab the boys, pull them underwater then it brings […] Read More

2017: The Strangest Story Ever Told?

In Alaska, there is a Bay known as Thomas Bay and all through this Bay is very remote it has seen a lot of tragedy and it is also called the bay of death. In 1750 a native village was hit by a massive landslide and more than 500 people died. Then in the very late 19th century a ship carrying Chinese immigrants hired to work for an Alaskan salmon company wrecked just outside of the Bay. And it was reported that every single person that was on board this ship had died. And not too long after this accident a man named Charlie, a prospector asked an elder where he got a piece of quartz flecked with gold. And this elder gave Charlie directions to what sounded like a mother lode and this location was in the woods right next to Thomas Bay. Now Charlie could not believe […] Read More
