Going Offline

I'll be offline for a while from today, as I'll be driving to San Antonio,TX to speak for the city's MUFON group tomorrow night on the subject of my expeditions to Puerto Rico in search of the Chupacabras. Then, I'll be out of town for the Thanksgiving Holiday; so it's likely to be next weekend (or maybe even a week from today) before I'll be back online. If you're in the US, have a good Thanksgiving! And I'll catch up with all the latest news (and I'm sure there will be a lot with being offline for a week) on my return.

Wanstead Woods Part-2

As a follow-up to the story I posted a couple of days ago, there has been another sighting of a strange creature seen near England's Wanstead Woods. Oddly, despite the fact that the focus is again upon Bigfoot, the descriptions of the beast reported in both this story and in the initial one, don't really sound anything like Bigfoot - that is, aside from the large feet!

The Cannock Bigfoot & The Media

Last week, I was interviewed by the British Sunday Mercury newspaper about the many and varied stories pertaining to (and sightings of) Bigfoot-like creatures in the woods of the Cannock Chase, Staffordshire, England.

Having grown up there, I can say for certain that the whole area is rich in Bigfoot reports. But, I'm convinced the creature is not all it seems to be - or maybe it's more than it seems to be!

As I told the media:

"I think the Cannock Chase Bigfoot has paranormal origins and is linked with the large amount of paranormal activity in the area. If this creature was flesh-and-blood, there would have to be more than one to ensure reproduction. If there was a colony of them on the Chase, we would be seeing massive evidence of them feeding on the local animal population. But the amount of deer kills that have taken place are not anywhere near enough to feed a colony of these creatures."

And that's the problem with not just the Cannock Chase Bigfoot, but the larger issue of Bigfoot in Britain in general. There are numerous reports; but a distinct lack of the type evidence for their existence that typifies (for example) the eating-habits, reproduction, habitat etc. of the Mountain Gorilla.

The British Bigfoot looks like a large ape; but has a far more phantom-like nature to it.

Here's the link to the full article.

A Wanstead Woods Man-Beast?

This new news story refers to the sighting of an unidentified creature seen in England's Wanstead Woods in a Bigfoot context. Upon reading it, however, it really sounds like something else. Exactly what, I'm not quite sure! But it may, at least, be worth following and keeping an eye on to see if more develops in the coming days and weeks.

"Paranormal" & The British Bigfoot

The new issue of Britain's Paranormal magazine includes a lengthy article from me (titled Our Own Creation?) on why I believe that at least some of the strange creatures (including the British Bigfoot) in our midst may very well be Tulpas, rather than flesh-and-blood animals.

Interestingly, the letters-section of the magazine includes several stories of large and hairy, British Bigfoot-type beasts seen in Northumberland.

Also in the same issue, you'll find a good review of Jon Downes' Island of Paradise book; which tells the story of the expedition that me and Jon went on to Puerto Rico in 2004, in search of the Chupacabras.

Paranormal is an excellent magazine that - with editor Richard Holland - is going from strength to strength. Give them your support: you won't be disappointed!
