We had become quite obsessed with seeing this figure and told one of our friends nick, who decided to come with us one night. So all together off we went across the fields from my Grans house, it was about a 10-15 min walk, the night was still and clear, time around 9. We decided this time wed go in on the main entrance just like we did on the original sighting. I’l explain here that if your looking on google maps it is not the Womersley rd entrance, this is where the lorries used to go in, its a wide path across the field from Broomhill estate.
We walked down this path and as we got closer the atmosphere just sort of changed, it became more expectant, you knew something was going to happen, but you just didn’t know what! Suddenly there was a commotion of barking dogs coming from in front and to our right, they were in the garden of the house next to the main path, on the right of the path there is the boundary fence and a house with a large plot of land.
The Carter farm, once upon a time, was only 58.3 acres. Fifty-eight point three acres that the map clearly shows was/is land that stretches along as frontage property adjacent to Reynolds Road. Finding this location was a breeze. No more than 5 miles going south from downtown Madisonville one turns left off of route 411 and proceeds east on Reynolds Road for a short couple of miles. Single wide trailers pepper the road side with an occasional average foundation home placed in the mix. Cattle, horses and donkeys are seen leisurely grazing on two farms before, but close to the Carter farm. This is not a mountainous area by any stretch of the imagination, nor is it what anyone could call, with a straight face occupied by Hillbilly mountain people. This location [the Carter farm] is close to town, close to the highway and consists of a few rolling hills. It is not a mile from the mountainous park as is claimed however the distant mountains can be seen from the farm.
Once immediately passing the Carter farm two trailers [mobile homes] were found on the same side of the road. I drove up to these trailers that bordered the far east side of what is now Philpot’s land and quickly noticed dogs, dogs that were adult and puppies eagerly meeting my vehicle. Here we got out, petted and photographed a couple of these dogs. Not much further down the road another large herd of cattle was noted and around the very next bend ( no more than one half to a mile from the Carter place) we found an Emu farm. Emu’s were observed contently enjoying the pasture far from any cover or concern.
The structures of the farm (house, mobile home, barn, sheds) are located well within a few yards of the road. Janice’s old house also sets close to the road. The door that the alleged Bigfoot [Fox] knocked on requesting garlic is no further than a half of football field from the roads edge. Reynolds Road is newly blacktopped, narrow and curves directly in front of 507, Janice’s old place — local traffic flies around this curve. At night the eastbound traffic’s headlights cannot help but scan across the entire front of the house as they negotiate the turn. Next to the Carter farm property, literally within feet and west of 507 Reynolds Road, approximately a dozen young calves were seen lazing about. The calves were border only by a weak barbed wire fence and drying creek bed. Full Article Here.

A large “beast” with a taste for sheep is believed to be roaming the most remote parts of Northern Scotland, stripping sheep from their skin and leaving no trace but bones and wool. The mysterious beast’s latest catch is a hefty and healthy ewe of about 50kg. Her wool was neatly peeled off her skin before it was eaten. The carcass was found less than 100 yards from a croft in Swordly. The ewe belonged to Susan Mackay, who is not the first crofter to fall victim of the unknown animal.
Jim Johnston, 66, who lives in the village of Bettyhill, has developed a particular interest in the story and went to the property and photographed Mrs Mackay with the carcass of her sheep. He told the Independent that over the past five years, about 40 sheep have been found dead, apparently killed in one go, all neatly stripped of their skin before being eaten, across an area of about 200 square miles between the parishes of Farr and Tongue.
Cryptozoology News shared a story from a lady remembering back to her childhood on a day out with her sister who saw something she has never forgotten.
PORTUGAL — A woman in Portugal claims she and her sister saw two Neanderthals. The 83-year-old Serra da Strela resident told Cryptozoology News she and her sister were caring for a herd of cows when they spotted the two “primitive men”. “I was 5 years old and my sister was 8. We were in a remote area in the Serra da Estrela when we saw two naked men speaking a totally strange language,” she said about the 1939 alleged encounter. “Then we saw them entering a cave.”
The following day, she explains, they decided to check out the cave with their sheep dog. “But when we reached the cave our dog didn’t want to go in. He kept growling and my sister wanted to go back. We could smell smoke that appeared to come from inside the cave.”
Later that day, she reports that when they told their father about the incident he became angry. “He told us he already knew about the existence of these people. He said they were the original peoples who survived in a few numbers and were still living in a primitive state. I remember him saying that there were only about half a dozen individuals left.” The “wild people”, as the woman referred to, were described as being naked and had a yellow skin color.
Witness statement Emma Adam: I want to report something that happened to me and my sister a few years ago now back in 2013. We still don’t know to this day what we saw, I dont have a name for it and nothing on Google is matching up with it, someone said it could be red deer as they will stand on two feet but this was no deer. We were driving along Limby Hall lane in Swannington in Leicestershire this is just past the Grace Dieu Priory area and we decided on this route as it was new for us and we wanted to walk the dogs somewhere different for a change, my sister lived in Eastwood Nottingham at the time so she came over and slept the night at mine in Whitwick. We were out on the lane and it was getting darkish but there was still plenty enough light to walk our two dogs, I would say it was roughly around Feb and about 10/11 pm time. My sister was the driver and I was the passenger and our dogs were in the back.
Another update from Mike out in the field. Mike has been searching for evidence of any kind, he looks for prints, contacts locals and ask if any strange or unknown creatures have been seen in the area, he asks farmers about missing stock or strange animals around. He is visiting woods all across the UK and he also takes accounts from people who have had strange canid sightings of their own.
Area- Sirhowy Forest, near Crosskeys Wales
Weather- Clear, dry with scattered cloud cover
Start time- 11.00 hrs – 13.00 hrs
Today’s visit will be to Sirhowy Forest near Crosskeys in Wales. I left Reading at around 09.15 am and arrived in Crosskeys at 10.45 am. I started walking up the road towards Sirhowy Forest at 10.50 am and after a good 5 minutes I reached the first Public Footpath that leads into the Forest, which led me up a 70 meter or more incline to the top of a very steep slope.
When I reached the top I sat down for a cup of coffee and some sandwiches, on a tree stump and after about 15 to 20 minutes the Birds stopped singing and sure enough the whole area went quiet, at this point I had a strong urge to keep looking to my right, and this was when I heard a very deep throated growl that came from my left, which had me turning left quickly and almost jumping with fright trying to see where the growl had come from.
