    From this perspective it looks like the view is uphill and the ''object'' is on the sky.....but then its so fuzzy even if the view is of the loch its more likely a boat.

    Red Eyed 'Upright Wolf' Encountered in Hopkinsville, Kentucky

    Hopkinsville, Kentucky: “Nadine Smith and her husband and their son, Shane, moved into a trailer park, as they waited for housing on the base. Nadine's husband was in the military and they moved around a lot.

    One day, Nadine and Shane were out playing in the yard when they found a dead dog. They quickly determined that it was the neighbor's dog. Sadly, the neighbors weren't around, and so they ended up burying the pooch in the woods, near the tree-line. The next day, they went out to check on the grave and the animal was gone.

    Soon after, Nadine began seeing a creature out by the tree-line. It had blood red eyes and stood, she guessed, 8 feet tall. It appeared to be a bipedal animal of some sort. She began seeing it quite frequently. Her husband assumed that she was exaggerating but two or three weeks later, he saw it too. He saw the red eyes and also heard it grunting and groaning. He went outside with a shotgun to confront it but the creature was gone.

    Nadine decided to ask some neighbors around the trailer park if they ever saw anything weird around the area. Her neighbors seemed uninterested in speaking to her about it and a few shunned her entirely. As she walked around the park one day, she spotted, inside one of the abandoned and locked trailers, red eyes staring back at her from the window. Whatever it was, was inside the trailer. Around this time, Shane began having recurring nightmares and would wake in a panic. He claimed that a creature was looking at him in the window at night. They would attempt to calm him down by telling him that it was just a nightmare and nothing more.

    One night, they ran into the room during one of these night terror instances and both Nadine and her husband saw the red eyed creature in the window, looking in. Nadine described that it had black / brown fur, was standing upright and had red eyes. She noted that, to her, it looked like an “upright walking wolf.” She decided to do some research and found out about skin-walkers and came to believe that the creature might be one. While her husband was away at work, Nadine, too scared to stay alone, asked a friend to stay over.

    One night, during this time, they heard guttural growls coming from outside as well as noises. Both women looked out the door and observed the upright walking black wolf with red eyes looking back at them. Nadine noted that it appeared angry and bolted in their direction. They went inside. Just then, their 14 x 8 foot trailer began to shake violently. As they were preparing to call the police, everything stopped. They opened the door and the creature was now gone.

    Nadine and her husband decided that it was probably best just to move and they packed their things and drove off. They were such a haste to get away from the area, that they ended up leaving some of their furniture behind. Nadine's husband claims that even on the last day, while packing the car, he could see the red eyes watching him from the tree-line.”

    Reports from the Void: 'I'm Scared to Death to Even Talk about This'

    On February 7th, 2019, the Singular Fortean Society received the following email.

    I'm scared to death to even talk about this. But I feel I have seen the red-eyed humanoid in Merrillville, Indiana. I seen it back in the end of October 2018, when I was leaving my mother's house. It wasn't till about three months later that I read something about a humanoid sighting.

    I have had anxiety and a heavy chest ever since I seen those red eyes in my front windshield. I tried and tried so hard in my head to figure out what the hell it was without telling anyone I know. No doubt in my mind that people would think I was seeing things.

    When I first read about the humanoid, I mentioned it to a friend if she's heard anything about it. She looked confused and said no. Next thing you know, we're on another subject. I am overcome with fear and not sure what I should do. Not even sure if I should talk about it after I send this message even. I can't get those red eyes that looked right at me out of my head.

    Investigator Tobias Wayland responded, “I'm sorry, I know how difficult it can be to talk about these things—especially when your friends and family are dismissive of them. If you feel you'd like to talk about it, then I'm happy to set up a phone interview or to continue to correspond by email. If it helps, I don't believe you're in any danger from what you've seen.”

    The witness did not reply.

    It is not unusual for witnesses, especially throughout the Lake Michigan Mothman investigation, to be so terrified by their experience that they are highly reluctant to recount it. Many witnesses have expressed a fear of social ridicule, but others have also spoken of being afraid that talking about what they’ve seen will somehow summon the creature back into their life. This particular fear, that of reprisal from the creature, is less common but more strongly felt by the witness when it exists.

    Merrillville is just south of Gary, Indiana, and less than 10 miles from Lake Michigan.

    Gary was the site of several sightings of a “big, grayish prehistoric bird” reported by a husband and wife between 2015 and 2016, and in January of 2019 a man reported seeing a “grayish” flying creature “with large wings that were similar to bat wings” in the city.

    Given the description provided by the witness and the sighting location, this encounter could be related to the string of ‘Mothman’ sightings from within a few hundred mile radius surrounding Lake Michigan, including every state bordering the great lake. The sightings ostensibly began in the spring of 2017, but more historical accounts are being reported as more people become aware of the phenomenon. Sightings of weird winged beings around Lake Michigan have been reported at all hours, often in or near a park, and around water.

    Witnesses consistently describe a large, gray or black bat or bird-like creature—although in a small number of cases the creature was described as insect-like—sometimes with glowing or reflective red, yellow, or orange eyes; and humanoid features such as arms and legs are often reported. A feeling of stark fear is commonly reported by witnesses, sometimes beginning prior to the sighting itself. Many of the sightings are also of something seen only briefly or are described only as a flying creature with few details, which leaves open the possibility that a large avian being could explain some encounters. Sightings of anomalous avians, including thunderbirds and pterosaurs, are often reported in or near the same locations as those where witnesses have reported winged humanoids.

    Sizeable Anomaly Spotted on Loch Ness Webcam
    By Tim Binnall

    A webcam that watches over Loch Ness has once again provided a possible glimpse of what may be the site's resident 'monster' in a clip that shows a particularly sizeable anomaly emerging from the water. As has been the case with the only other two potential sightings of the creature this year, the latest report comes courtesy of Eoin O'Faodhagain, who diligently watches the stream from his home in Ireland in the hopes of seeing Nessie.

    This most recent sighting, he explained to the Scottish Sun, occurred last Wednesday when a curious-looking and rather large object "came up out of the water and stayed motionless ... it submerged slowly into the loch disappearing from sight." O'Faodhagain claims that shortly after the oddity first appeared "splashing motions can be seen on the video," although this is difficult to discern in his second-hand video capture of the strange scene.

    Be that as it may, the footage does indeed show some kind of dark object, which O'Faodhagain estimated to be thirty feet long, on the water for approximately ninety seconds before it appears to gradually sink below the surface. As one might imagine, the sheer size of the anomaly has captured the imagination of Nessie fans, who have heralded the video as featuring perhaps the biggest sighting of the creature to date.

    By virtue of the April 22nd sighting, O'Faodhagain can now be credited with a whopping eight reports accepted by the Official Loch Ness Monster Sightings Register, easily making him the most proficient 'hunter' of the creature to date. And, considering the success he's had so far, it stands to reason that this is not the last time we'll be scrutinizing tantalizing footage captured by the webcam watcher. To that end, what's your take on O'Faodhagain's latest sighting? Share your thoughts at the C2C Facebook page.

    Upright Canine (Possible 'Rougarou') Encountered in Beauregard Parish, Louisiana
    By Lon Strickler

    This past weekend, I received a telephone call from 'PB' who is an owner of 70 acres of thick west central Louisiana woodland in Beauregard Parish (near Deridder, adjacent to the Fork Polk Military Base in Vernon Parish).


    About four weeks ago, PB and his 5-year-old daughter were walking along their long dirt driveway that leads to their home. When they reached the paved section of the driveway, PB noticed a dead 90 lb male Bobcat laying along the edge. There were no apparent wounds or blood, but the fresh carcass looked like it had been battered and crushed. This area has abundant wildlife and predators that include Bobcat, Black Bear and at least one very large female Panther that has been seen occasionally by PB. The sight of this dead Bobcat was concerning since there was no indication that any predator had fed on the carcass.

    As PB and his daughter stood there looking at the Bobcat carcass, he noticed some movement in the thick dark woods not far from the driveway. There is a game trail the cuts through the woods and continues over the dirt driveway into the opposite woods. There is also a pond nearby. As they moved closer, PB soon observed a wolf-like head rise above the thick brush. The head was very large with grayish-black fur.

    PB pulled out his phone and quickly snapped a photo of this beast. As he did, a deep growling sound emanated from the unknown creature as it 'stood' up. PB immediately saw that this canine was at least 7 foot in height and covered in sparse blackish fur. It had freakish broad human-like shoulders and a wide chest, muscular arms and legs, as well as a tapered torso. The eyes seemed to 'shine' a weird greenish hue.

    PB and his daughter backed off as this beast took a long stride forward. It stopped, leered at PB with its green eyes and growled deeply. PB daughter ran away screaming for her father, which seemed to startle the upright canine. It quickly turned and fled into the woods. PB attempted to take another photo as the beast moved off into the dark woods, but there was no distinguishable form on the image. They both quickly ran for home.

    Since that encounter, PB has attempted to find a reporting agency, when he finally found my contact information. He sent me the image and asked what I thought what it may be. I noticed the canine-like head and pointed ears, but was unsure since the image was difficult to discern. I asked PB what he thought this was. His immediate response was 'werewolf.' I later asked PB if he had heard of any similar sightings in the area. He responded that he hadn't, but he was aware of 'rougarou' accounts much further south from his location.

    The image of the upright canine head is very distorted because of the pixelation of a typical camera phone when attempting to zoom in. The best result that we were able to manage, without manipulating the photo, is posted below. It was forwarded by a reader. I've also included the original photo. There are also other images of the area that were taken later.

    PB believes that the Bobcat may have attacked the upright canine or vice versa. It seems that the Bobcat was beat upon or slammed onto the ground by this beast. The witness is a hunter and trapper who is quite familiar with the wildlife in this part of Louisiana. PB is attempting gather further evidence and will provide it to me if available.

    8 Ft 'Upright Canine' Pair Observed on Beauregard Parish, Louisiana Farm
    By Lon Strickler

    On May 4, 2020 I posted the following - Upright Canine (Possible 'Rougarou') Encountered in Beauregard Parish, Louisiana - In which a Beauregard Parish, Louisiana property owner and his young daughter encountered an utterly terrifying upright canine near their home. On May 8, 2020 I received a telephone from another witness who lives approximately 15 miles south of this sighting:


    The elderly witness 'CW' and her husband live on a 80 acre farm south of Derrider, Louisiana in Beauregard Parish. They and their neighbors raise cattle.

    One week ago, and during the late afternoon, CW was sitting on her porch watching the pasture with a pair of binoculars. She regularly does this, but at the present time she wanted to monitor a newborn calf and another pregnant cow. That same day, she also noticed that there was a cow carcass lying in the field, that needed to be removed later by her husband or neighbor.

    As she was monitoring the herd, she noticed some moved beyond the pasture near an old abandoned building on the property. As she focused in with the binoculars, she could not fathom what she was observing. There was a 8+ foot tall bipedal creature walking along the outside of the barbed wire fence. As she looked closer, the hairy beast was dark, almost black, in color and was what she could only describe as a walking wolf. The creature moved west to east, went behind some bushes, then continued back west. This is when CW noticed another similar bipedal creature trailing behind it! Both were about the same height and very similar in form. After a minute or so, the pair disappeared into the trees.

    This is the first time CW has seen any creatures remotely like this. She believes that the pair were focused on the dead cow which was about 200 feet away from their location, though there was no subsequent predation on the carcass.

    There had been an incident approximately 3 weeks prior, during the night when CW was in her house. She recalls hearing 'god awful screams' coming from the cattle herd. The next morning, at first light, her husband investigated the reason for the ruckus and found that a large portion of the barb wire fence had been trampled and that the herd was scattered throughout the woods. CW said that was the first and only time that this has occurred.

    CW's daughter lives in an adjoining trailer and recently CW has been feeding her pets while the daughter travels. CW noticed, what she states as, 'long cat or dog prints' in the ground along the trailer. Her daughter did mention that she has observed panthers in the area previously. CW told me that she will attempt to obtain photos of the prints.

    CW and her husband are very private and the exact location will be kept in confidence. I have contacted a well-regarded cryptid investigator and colleague to follow up on these incidents.

    An East Indian youth is shocked to discover that his father and grandfather had an encounter with a Bigfoot-like being in rural India

    I recently found the following interesting account:

    NOTE: An alleged ape-like creature, referred to as the Mande Barung (the 'jungle man'), is said to inhabit the Garo Hills region of India.

    Those who have seen this ape like mammal have interesting stories to reveal. It is reported by the villagers that on one occasion, a man who was passing through a forest was captured by this mammal and forcibly made him do breast feeding. This was reported on January 18, 1999. His account said, “The milk was sour with a mixture of bitterness.”
