Mad Scientists: Bird Drones

 Real birds. Dead birds. Now repurposed as drones.   Not clear where they're getting the dead birds from; road kill, taxidermists, or what.

Magical Mermaid Eyeball

Two men arrested for selling a mermaid's magical eyeball | Boing Boing

Have to appreciate the specifics of the scam. A "magical eyeball" from a mermaid. Naturally a mermaid's eyeball would be magical.

Did you know? Millersburg had its own Bigfoot-style monster (maybe)

A few months ago I was interviewed for the following article by Kyle Odegard about the Conser Lake Monster in Millersburg, Oregon: Did you know? Millersburg had its own Bigfoot-style monster (maybe)

Regan Lee, a paranormal researcher from Eugene, had hoped to write a book on the creature and said she has letters in her files from residents who remember the incident.

I still hope to write the thing. Inspiration. I'll put it up as a Kindle e-book or some such. 

Why So Coy? Missing 411: The Hunted

 I watched the David Paulides  2019 documentary last night: Missing 411: The Hunted. (You can stream it on Hulu.) It started off with the expected cases of  individual hunters who went missing; their disappearances remain unsolved.  Paulides then camps out with Bigfoot researchers Ron Morehead and Scott  Nelson. Morehead and Nelson describe their experiences over the years in the area; strange noises, orbs, lights and more. The audio is eerily familiar to other recordings of Bigfoot. As are the descriptions of strange lights. These have been reported by many a seeker of Bigfoot. But not once during the Paulides interview does Morehead or Nelson say the words Bigfoot or Sasquatch. Not once. I had the distinct feeling that Paulides instructed them to not say those words.

Paulides has been coy over the years as to any connection with Bigfoot and the missing. I have no idea if the two are connected, but it seems there does seem to be some kind of relationship at times. . Paulides consistently skirts around the idea, but never comes out and suggests it as a possibility. True, it is all speculation but nothing wrong with speculation as long as it’s made clear that it’s speculation.

The documentary also includes an interview with Bruce Mcabbee’s wife, who saw a strange transparent being moving through the trees while she was sitting up in a deer blind.  She describes it as looking something like the being in Predator. Around the same time, witnesses in the town saw a UFO. A very curious encounter for sure.   

These two items concerning strange lights, UFOS, Bigfoot type voices and transparent beings don’t seem to have anything to do with the missing. They could have; it’s absolutely possible. But in the documentary it wasn’t made clear the two had anything to do with the missing hunters. And at no point did Paulides say “This is why I’m including these incidents.”  In fact, David Paulides has been downright cranky when asked about any Bigfoot connection; he’s been downright cranky if he even thinks someone thinks he did when they didn’t. Yet there are highly interesting clues that suggest a Bigfoot type connection, or something appearing as Bigfoot. An energy that is non-human and manifesting as a being that is clearly intelligent. The following are from children who went missing and were later found alive:

Three year old boy found safe after being lost in the woods for two days. The boy says he was kept safe by "a bear."

The 3-year-old boy who spent two days lost in the woods of eastern North Carolina tells his family he “hung out with a bear” for companionship while hundreds of people searched frantically in cold and rainy weather to find him. 

Lost Boy in Woods Found Safe; Hung Out with Bear

David Paulides, of the Missing 411 books, has written that missing people, including children, often happen when it rains, or has been raining. I remember a couple of survivors Paulides writes about that mention a bear or ape like creature who helped them. Bigfoot? Paulides is coy about that, but it's possible. Or, angel, spirit, who knows. Bears are hibernating this time of year. Not to mention a bear might well attack, rather than protect. But, again, who knows?

PARA-NEWS - Zoological Journalist - Richard Freeman, Considers the Question: Is Bigfoot A Man, Another Ape, An Unknown species of Bear, or All of the Above?

An excellent article by Richard Thomas on the Yeti, Bigfoot, etc. Some things were new to me; for example, the Yeti, depicted as a white haired creature and often referred to as 'the Abominable Snowman." 

The confusion comes from a mistranslation of one of the beast's many names, Metoh-kangmi, Sino-Tibetan for 'abominable man of the rocks'. It was mistranslated as 'abominable man of the snows. This is where we get the western term ‘Abominable Snowman’ from. (Richard Thomas, Para-News)

LA Animal Control issues first ever license for pet unicorn ownership | Boing Boing

This item on about a child receiving a license for a pet unicorn:

LA Animal Control issues first ever license for pet unicorn ownership | Boing Boing
Last month, a young girl named Madeline write a letter to the LA County Department of Animal Care and Control requesting formal government permission to keep a unicorn in her backyard. Presumably, Madeline had already asked her parents if she could have a unicorn, and rather than disappoint their child by letting her know how impossible it would be to actually capture and domesticate a unicorn, they passed the buck to the bureaucrats instead —

Bigfoot Video: Canada

Tim Binnall at Coast to Coast shares a video of Bigfoot  in Canada that is pretty compelling. Unless it's fake, of course. I'm always a bit suspicious when the photographer just happens to be at the one clear spot at the exact moment a Sasquatch happens to walk through. On the. other hand, it is a very realistic looking Sasquatch, color, movement, body shape, etc. 

Carry On Pets

 First it was a cat that got itself cozy inside a suitcase and was discovered by TSA, now a poor doggo  found its way into a backpack. 

Odd coincidence.


And here's an item about a Great Pyrenees who killed eight coyotes while defending his sheep.

Dogman in Oregon

I am familar with the Dogman in the eastern part of the U.S. , but what about Oregon? Wondering if Dogman encounters occur in Oregon, I did a little search and came across a few reports of Dogman sightings in my state.

Albany, Oregon, from the Dogman Encounters website:

Lab Meat

 I wouldn't eat it. Too futuristic mad scientist for me. I don't eat meat anyway; just some fish and chicken or turkey. "Shmeat." The meat is created in a lab, from living animal cells. I'm reminded of that heart wrenching and horrific scene from Torchwood, where a giant living creature was kept chained in a room, and slices of its flesh taken for consumption. (Yes, I know it was fiction.)

HT to boing for this item.

The Owls Are Not What They Seem

 The Norwegian Blue Owl. Beautiful. Magical. But not true. Maybe it exists in some other realm, but sadly, not in Norway, or anywhere else in this reality.

Cattle Deaths in Colorado a Mystery

 Item in New York Post. Forty cows have died recently in Meeker, Colorado. No one knows the cause of death. Wolves, bacterial infections, are two theories, but anything definitive remains elusive.

Officials have utilized aerial flights, howling surveys and game cameras to look for wolves and wolf tracks to no avail. There have been no confirmed wolf reports in the area, only unconfirmed sightings, leaving officials confused and desperate for an answer. (New York Post)

Bigfoot Dream: BF/UFO

 Bigfoot dream the other night:

I attend a lecture about Bigfoot. It's in a classroom, old school style. Green chalkboard. A woman, about forty, is the one giving the lecture. I'm excited to go. I arrive with notebooks and journals -- all kinds of material about Bigfoot. She starts her presentation; sticks little sticky notes up all over. Her talk is okay but it's lacking something. I start to add info; she is nice about it, not at all offended. After a few minutes she says "Oh, I had no idea! That is so interesting. You need to come up here and give the presentation."

So I do. I'm so happy doing this. While at first there were only a few people attending, word gets around, and soon the classroom is standing room only. 

Then the talk turns a little weird. I start talking about UFOs in connection with Bigfoot. I have maps and eye witness accounts. This doesn't turn anyone off; but many are surprised and didn't expect this direction. 

And that, my friends, is a look inside my dreaming mind.

Sheriff reports "non-human creature" brutally killed farmer's horse | Boing Boing

A farmer in Ohio found his barn wrecked and his horse tragically mutilated. 
Sheriff reports "non-human creature" brutally killed farmer's horse | Boing Boing

He has cameras and stated he checked it already and [no one] had been there since he was yesterday. Upon further inspection, we were able to determine that a human did not do this to the horse….

That's a curious statement -- "...were able to determine that a human did not do this . . ." how, why was it determined?

Article about Flix, The BHM in Oregon

I was interviewed for this article in November, which appeared in the Albany Democrat Herald, about a Bigfoot like creature who communicated telepathically, saying he was from outer space.
