In March of 2013 a 17 year old student by the name of Terri Leigh Cox noticed a creature bounding around the playing fields just outside her house in Dorchester, Dorset. Miss Cox’s description of the sighting in her own words was; “it was such a shock. I couldn’t believe what I was seeing at first. It looked about the size of a small gorilla. It was walking like one as well, using its arms and feet. It was definitely a monkey because you could tell by its hunched back and the way it scampered across a field and up a tree. It wasn’t a black
On the North West Coast of Scotland not only are there many Lochs, there are also many accounts of strange creatures and paranormal experiences around the Lochs themselves. On land as old as time its no wonder strange anomalies pop up consistently, but on one lone Loch we have experiences that are exactly 4 years apart to the day.
On Wednesday evening of 16 April 2003, two students – Misha Egerton and Bryony Claremont, both aged 20, got on their bikes and cycled almost 2 miles from their flat on Beckwith Street, Birkenhead. They were travelling to a house on Wexford Road, Prenton, where their student boyfriends, Elliott and Jake lived. Tonight the girls, their boyfriends and ten other students were having a party and the guests were expected to bring their own bottles of wine and six packs of lager and beer.

Part-time labourer and gardener Robert Shankland has shared snaps of what he claims is a 14-inch footprint left by the giant creature in Dumfries and Galloway.
The 56-year-old has spent two years hunting for evidence of a “bipedal hominid creature” in Galloway Forest Park, which spans 300 square miles. As well as pictures of the “footprint”, Robert, from Burnside, Lanarkshire, reckons another image could show the creature staring at him from trees.

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.
I was chatting with one of my friends who also has an interest in the weird and the wonderful and we were discussing that not only do we get face to face accounts of creatures that come in and the figures that are seen but also the amount of Growls and Howls that get reported across the UK by ordinary people just going about their day, Unexplained Screams, Whoops, Howls and Growls some reported as Screeches or Blood Curdling Groans, my friend went on to tell me his experiences with something unseen that growled at him and his Mother, here is his account in his own words: Me and my mum went on holiday to Devon in the early 90’s possibly around 95 at the time we were on a trip to the Devonshire Coast and one evening we went to visit my Auntie and Uncle and my Cousins as they were staying in another holiday camp not too far away. I remember it was getting a bit late and we knew the entertainment planned by the holiday park for that evening was pretty much the same that we had seen at our camp the previous nights and we decided to go back as we were both hungry and we could get some food on our way back to the camp we were staying at.
A researcher and filmmaker Chris Turner Youtube Channel, who whilst busy with his new film Elusive, a documentary on the British Bigfoot, was contacted by a fellow Youtuber who had some experiences he wanted to share, Chris then kindly passed them over to me here at British Bigfoot. The young man in question is making no claims here, he is merely sharing some strange experiences whilst out wild camping with friends that have happened to him and others over the years.
Witness Statement: My first experience with what has become known as the North East Derbyshire Moorland Beast was in the August of 1984. I was bivouac camping with my cousin at a place called Blackamoor, Totley just outside Sheffield. I was about 14 and I was visiting family in the school holidays. We had set up the tents and a camp, and it had been a fun day and as evening drew in we called it a night. I got into the tent at around 11 pm and we both decided to try get some sleep.
I have been in contact recently with a gentleman by the name of Christian who has had some experiences in the past he wanted to share with me, he isn’t making any claims, merely a strange set of circumstances that have left him with questions he cant answer and the need to know if anyone else has experienced anything like this in this area or anywhere else in the UK.
This encounter took place near a village called Paull, several miles north east of the city of Hull. The year was 2002/03.
Isabella here from the high hills of Scotland. I thought I’d try to provide another update as winter closes in.
The local shoot has been in the fields every day since last week – except in the pouring rain when they had to stay by the fire. So it’s not a time for Bigfoot – or me for that matter – to be out and about. The biggest news from this site is that the landowner in our area, [who had his fences torn down if you recall], has apparently decided it was a fluke or random vandalism and is replacing them all. I can only predict that next March they’ll be gone again when the clan demand their territory and the right to roam once more. I suppose we’ll see who wins out. But I know who I’m betting on anyway.
Meanwhile, I thought I’d report on an encounter with a fleeing herd of red deer that happened last spring and might interest your listeners. First, it’s important to say that in this area, we seldom come across the stags. They seem to inhabit the loftiest areas. The hinds are regular visitors in the lower hills though. We see them and their young all the time, a few here and there and mostly at night.
