Man-Monkey Parallels

Andrew Gable - the Center for Fortean Zoology's representative for the U.S. states of Pennsylvania and Maryland - has a new post that, as you'll see, contains a number of intriguing U.S.-based parallels with the "Man-Monkey" of Bridge 39 on England's Shropshire Union Canal.

Here's the link to Andrew's post...

The Big Grey Man

In August of this year, Fortean researcher Andy Roberts delivered an excellent lecture on the phenomenon known as "The Big Grey Man of Ben Macdhui" to an audience at the Center for Fortean Zoology's annual Weird Weekend gig; at which I was also speaking.

Although some would describe the Big Grey Man as a definitive British Bigfoot, as Andy demonstrates, the story is not quite so clear-cut. The CFZ have now posted Andy's lecture on-line, and it can be viewed below:

Temporal Entities

Here's a new posting over at today's edition of The Anomalist, which I believe has a major bearing on the overwhelming elusive and seemingly near-spectral nature of the British Bigfoot:

"Gnomes - A Sustainable Population? The Heavy Stuff. Are gnomes temporal beings? In an article comparing the evidence, and lack thereof, of gnome populations to that of possible Bigfoot populations, the theory that both these beings are temporal entities, visible here for only a short time to the witness, is a compelling one. There is no solid evidence of the existence of either gnomes or Bigfoot. Years of research into the Bigfoot phenomenon have never yielded solid proof, say like a captured specimen, or remains of a deceased creature, and as the argument of the theory goes, it never will be found due to the beings ability to shift in and out of our realm, either due to multidimensional manipulation or another factor of their abilities not even comprehensible to us.

A Welsh Man-Beast

This new story at Cabinet of Wonders is more werewolf-driven than strictly Bigfoot, but it's big, hairy and man-like and originates in the British Isles - so those are all good enough reasons to include it here!
