Afan Forest Journal of Events, Howls, Dogs scared, Structure and Wood Knocks.

This account came in to me just in the last two weeks, and like most of the emails I received it was from a person who is used to being in one area a lot and they suddenly notice changes that stand out, unsure where to look for advice they look online, luckily this gentleman saw some of the work you guys have put in out in the field and many of the things we are finding we are unsure whether to dismiss them or not, there is a fragile line between what is claimed as Bigfoot structure and what is mis-identification or word of mouth? So in the hopes of helping get some answers I have reached out to as many bushcrafters as I can in the hopes we can weed out what is bushcraft and whittle down some of the things we need to be looking for. Like all accounts this is in the witnesses own words as he typed them.

Hello Deborah

I messaged you as I wanted to ask you a couple of questions about man made, or  woodcraft that I have found when I am out on my daily runs with my dogs, these look odd to me compared to normal bushcraft? I usually take them into the Afan Forest Valley,  I make two runs each day with the dogs, probably five days out of seven we visit this area, so Im used to being in the forest, the sounds and usual finds, but as of late I have noticed some strange things going on and some strange finds, as I mentioned earlier I have found some structures and snaps that I can’t put down to the usual weather or bushcrafters.

As I have three big dogs and they are too strong to take out all at once, I have to rotate the walk. So I spend a good few hours a week in the woods and my house looks over the river and into the forest, which is totally dark at night. You cant see into the treeline when it’s dusk or dark. There have been a couple of times when I’ve been out in this area when we were confronted with the strong smell of sulphur inside the woods, it is a horrible stench that doesn’t seem to be from the ground or any source I could find. This week I have found the most unlikely piece of woodcraft, which is a tree stump, upturned by the wind?  which has a pile of broken branches piled against it to provide a small shelter, not randomly like the weather would do but in they had been stacked to lean against the tree. (see video below for all structures)

Werewolf Paw or Kangaroo Hand? THE CURIOUS CASE OF THE WEREWOLF PAW…THAT WASN’T!

On September 5th, 2012, Cryptozoologist Dr. Karl Shuker received some photographs of a possible werewolf paw. According to Ben Coult in England, he found the strange hand in the middle of the road while bike riding with his friends in Durham county. Ben said a number of people looked at it, including an ex-taxidermist, but no one was able to identify it.

Here is Ben’s story: “I have an interesting artefact that I found about 15 years ago and was wondering if you would be interested in me sending you through a few photos of it?

“Firstly let me assure you that I am fairly well versed in the subject, having read Heuvelmans and Sanderson for years, and was recently referred to your website by a friend. Also I have a solid upbringing in local natural history and many contacts in that field.

The Worcester Werewolf 2016. The Big Hairy Thing from Defford 1957

The Worcester Werewolf 2016

A terrified couple have drawn a sketch of a fearsome beast they claim to have seen while on a National Trust property at 1am in the Cotswolds. They also took a blurry picture of the animal, dubbed the ‘Werewolf of Worcester’ because the drawing, although it is said to be a big cat, has features of a werewolf. Robert Ingram and wife Nicola sketched what they saw – and the big cat appears to have features which resemble that of a werewolf. From their drawing, it appears to be standing upright like a humanoid creature, rather than crouching like a cat. The beast also has protruding, pointed teeth and fearsome, sharp cheekbones.

Man sees ‘Werewolf’ in New York State

 

Cryptozoology News Today reported

 A New York resident on Monday said he spotted a humanoid with a “wolf head”.

The 16-year-old eyewitness, an Native American from Oneida who provided his identity but was kept anonymous as per the standard code of journalism ethics regarding disclosure of the identity of a minor, told Cryptozoology News that he was on his neighbor’s property looking for wild berries in the summer of 2017 when he encountered the creature at around 4:30 p.m..

“I had found some berries and was picking through them when  head what sounded like several branches break nearby,” he said. “So I went to investigate the noise.” The boy says he observed the creature, clearly, then decided to run away.“I didn’t think anymore. I started walking up the hill slowly, I heard it approaching me so I ran as fast as I could. I reached my neighbor’s open cornfield and that’s when I believe it stopped its pursuit.”

The student described the animal as a 7-foot-tall humanoid with white and grey fur on its cheeks, hands and neck. “It had bright blue eyes, glowing, it looked more human than wolf. I noticed it had claws about 2 to 3 inches long,” he said. He added that he and his family have also spotted UFOs every now and then in the area. “Being Native American, you hear stories of men with the ability to shift into any animal, but this thing scared me. I haven’t been back to that trail ever since. I haven’t told this story to anyone.”

The Dogman is a cryptid reputed to live in the northwestern quadrant of Michigan’s Lower Peninsula, although other sightings have been documented in other states, such as Wisconsin. This unproven creature was first reportedly spotted in 1887 by two lumberjacks, who described it as having a human body and a dog’s head.

In the fall of 2016, a Canadian Businessman told Cryptozoology News he had spotted a creature that looked like wolf walking upright while driving through Wisconsin.

7 months earlier, a 13-year-old in Muskego, Wisconsin, allegedly had an encounter with a similar creature.

In 2015, a group of three people in Michigan reportedly came across an unidentified dog-like creature in the woods of St. Clair County.

Oneida, located in Madison County, has a population of 12,000.

Surviving in the Siberian Wilderness for 70 Years

Published on 9 Apr 2013

In 1936, a family of Russian Old Believers journeyed deep into Siberia’s vast taiga to escape persecution and protect their way of life. The Lykovs eventually settled in the Sayan Mountains, 160 miles from any other sign of civilization. In 1944, Agafia Lykov was born into this wilderness. Today, she is the last surviving Lykov, remaining steadfast in her seclusion. In this episode of Far Out, the VICE crew travels to Agafia to learn about her taiga lifestyle and the encroaching influence of the outside world.

The Golden Dog Like Creature, The Mickleton Hooter and the Bellhowja Goblin

A Lady contacted me through Facebook and she shared her story about a strange animal she encountered whilst out walking the dog.

Witness Account: In the early 1990’s I rented part of a large house in the Costwolds in the vicinity of Meon Hill. The house was surrounded by private land and farmland and it afforded me the opportunity to walk my dogs wherever I wanted for as long as I wanted without seeing another soul.

One day I had not long left the house and passed from a mown field into a wild overgrown one when I had an overwhelming feeling that something or someone else was nearby. I stopped and my dogs ran on ahead. I scanned all around me and saw nothing, but such was the feeling of not being alone that I persisted and finally looked further afield to see a gingery head and shoulders just above the long grass.
