A Welsh Wild-Man

This is an odd story, yet an intriguing one, too. Indeed, it almost reads like a modern-day equivalent of the "wild-men-of-the-woods"-type tales that proliferated in Britain centuries ago.

Its subject matter?

Namely, a shaggy-haired character roaming the woods of South Wales, and apparently living on "rabbits and berries." Who he is, no-one really seems to know. But, the chase is on to find him...

The Kent Sasquatch

Excellent news! Yesterday, I received in the mail a review-copy of Neil Arnold's brand new book: Mystery Animals of the British Isles: Kent; which, as its title strongly suggests is Neil's own, deep, personal study of the weird creatures that dwell deep within his very own home-county of Kent, England.

At almost 400 pages in length, this veritable whopper of a book looks to be an excellent, definitive study that encompasses big-cats, black-dogs, water-beasts, Bigfoot, and much more.

I've only read one chapter thus far, and checked out the photo section and the other chapter titles; but I can say for certain that this is one of the most detailed regional studies of weird beasts ever written.

And, you may ask: which chapter have I read thus far? Well, the one on Kent-based Bigfoot and man-beast accounts, of course! There are some highly intriguing cases in this particular chapter that easily demonstrate that whatever the British Bigfoot may be, it's lurking deep in the heart of Kent.

Next week, I will be summarizing right here Neil's data on the Kent Bigfoot - but, until then, I most definitely recommend you get hold of a copy of Neil's book at the earliest opportunity. A great job, Neil!
