“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, British Columbia, Canada. “Indians have always known that wild men lived in the distant mountains,” Victor was quoted saying in MacLean’s Magazine in 1929, “within sixty and one hundred miles east of Vancouver, and of course they may live in other places throughout the province, but I have […] Read More

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 up to the present of a different side to these creatures, that of a fierce, ferocious beast fully willing and able to attack or even kill if it has to. Although not as common as reports of more benign or gentle Bigfoot, the accounts or violent or aggressive […] Read More

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 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

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 real before the Government tries to silence the truth #Bigfoot” [embedded content] The “Bigfoot frozen head video” was uploaded to Youtube by Peter Caine, whose channel describes him as a dog trainer, artist and comedian” who “also does political commentary, Cooking videos, Bigfoot Research, UFO’s and Aliens, Pigeons […] Read More

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 never seen disgorged from the forest into your lights and possibly your nightmares. As your mind struggles to make sense of what you have just seen and comprehend it, the thing is gone just as suddenly as it appeared, swallowed back up by the night. What was it? […] Read More

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. They really manage to fit whatever the creepy story calls for, and there are many such stories. 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 that I feel is particularly surreal and odd. It is a harrowing and horrific tale of soldiers out in the frigid elements, fighting not only the landscape itself, but unknown entities dwelling within it. In short, it is the perfect story of Nazi bizarreness. Before beginning, it is […] Read More

The Strangest Story Ever Told?

In Alaska there is a Bay known as Thomas Bay and all though 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 to 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

Truly Strange Cases of People Kidnapped by Bigfoot

“I was kidnapped by Bigfoot.” It is an absurd statement that seems practically synonymous with bad tabloid headlines, cranks, and kooks. Yet in the pantheon of the countless Bigfoot and hairy hominid reports that have come in from all corners of the globe there can be found a surprisingly high number of accounts that indeed claim exactly this. It is a phenomenon that can almost be considered its own subspecies of weird Bigfoot reports, and these seemingly ludicrous tales serve to not only merely entertain, but also to provoke thought and open up a line of inquiry into a rather potentially bizarre scenario. If Bigfoot and other hairy humanoid beasts are indeed real, then do they on occasion abduct humans, and if so how would such a situation play out? Here we will look at cases that may hold the answers to these questions. These are among the weirdest […] Read More

These Early Reports of Sasquatch in Cascadia Offer Eerie Details of “Men Stealers”

Sasquatch, or “Bigfoot” as it is more commonly known today, is as elusive a mystery as any afforded us in North America. While the creature’s alleged existence in popular media really only sprang into the public consciousness during the 1950s, plenty of earlier stories exist, which dealt with “giants” in the mountains of Washington State and other remote regions of Cascadia. One early report that goes as far back as the 1840s appears in the diary of Elkanah Walker, a notable pioneer, settler, and American missionary who travelled through modern day Oregon and Washington State (at that time, they were still known as the Oregon Country). Walker recorded many beliefs held among the Spokane Indians, one of which clearly outlines the familiar legends about the Sasquatch. However, there is one particularly odd note he details about the creatures, and their apparent habits for kidnapping. Walker wrote the following about the […] Read More

Am Fear Liath Mor: The Terrifying Grey Man of the Cairngorms

Am Fear Liath Mor, known also as the Big Grey Man of Ben MacDhui, or simply as the Greyman, is the name given to a creature said to live on Ben MacDhui, the second highest mountain, which is situated in the Cairngorm in the eastern Highlands of Scotland. Stories about the Greyman have been recorded as early as 1791, though the most famous account was given in 1925 by a highly respected scientist and mountaineer who was on Ben MacDhui in 1891. Actual sightings of this creature have been rare. The 1925 account, for instance, did not even involve a glimpse of the Greyman. The Greyman Despite the lack of sightings, the Greyman has often been described as being 3 m (9.8 ft.) in height, with very long arms and legs, an ape-like head, and covered in short hair. The Greyman has also sometimes been compared to the Yeti […] Read More

The Australian Yowie: Mysterious Legends of a Tribe of Hairy People

In 1804, the book Modern Geography – a Description of the Empires, Kingdoms, States and Colonies: with the Oceans, Seas and Isles: In all Parts of the World was published by John Pinkerton.  In it there is a comment regarding a population of Aborigines that shared Sydney Harbor with another tribe.  They were described as flat-nosed with wide nostrils; thick eyebrows and sunken eyes.  Their mouths were of ‘prodigious width’ with thick lips and prominent jaws.  The Aborigines regarded them as another people entirely: the Yahoos or Yowies meaning “hairy people”. The Two Yowie Groups of Australia The Kuku Yalanji Tribe of Tropical North Queensland, Australia believes in the existence of this creature. They claim to have coexisted with the Yowie for centuries and have a long and detailed history of attacks from them in their legends.  The Yowie is their equivalent to what Native American tribes in Northwest […] Read More

Another Skunk Ape Spotted in Florida

If you’re looking for something to do in Florida that’s cheaper and has shorter lines than Disney World, you might want to head to Alderman’s Ford park in Plant City where yet another Skunk Ape was spotted and recorded on video. This is the third sighting with a recording or a photograph in two years. Is something driving the Skunk Apes out of the Florida swamps? The latest video is dated June 5, 2015, and was allegedly taken at the Alderman’s Ford Regional Park (admission $2 – much less than Disney World) on County Road 39 in Hillsborough County. The Alafia River runs through the park and is popular for canoeing (very short lines). Mitch W. Davis posted the video of a Skunk Ape walking in front of the trees before taking cover among them. He doesn’t say anything about finding tracks or smelling the telltale Skunk Ape odor […] Read More

New Analysis Shows Yeti is Not a Hybrid Polar Bear

Despite what TV cop shows would like you to believe, DNA evidence can be wrong. This is good news for Yetis who were not looking forward to inviting brown bears and polar bears over for the holidays based on DNA tests that pointed to Yeti being a polar bear-brown bear hybrid. It turns out those results were in error. You may remember the research led by Oxford geneticist Bryan Sykes which analyzed 37 samples of Yeti and Bigfoot hairs. Thirty-five were determined to be from common animals but two unknowns from the Himalayas were compared to a DNA database and appeared to be from an extinct polar bear species, leading to the conclusion that the Abominable Snowman is a hybrid bear. However, new research by Ross Barnett, from the University of Copenhagen, and Ceiridwen Edwards from the University of Oxford, published in the Royal Society journal, Proceedings of the […] Read More
