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.
Friskney Footprint and Dark Figure
Bigfoot enthusiast Adam Bird, who captured the image, did not see the image whilst out on the research day, it was viewed by a group member who claims it could be the most convincing evidence yet that Britain is home to the mythical beast. Could these startling pictures be evidence that Bigfoot is lurking in the British countryside? The eerie image appears to show a large shadowy figure looming menacingly behind a tree in a Lincolnshire woods.
Bigfoot enthusiast Adam Bird, 31, captured the picture while out walking in Friskney nature reserve and said he was stunned to spot the shadowy figure staring back at him from the photo after it was pointed out to him. After hearing of previous Bigfoot sightings at the nature reserve, Adam, from Nottingham, ventured into the woodland in search of clues. He followed some strange noises and suspiciously large footprints in the woods before capturing what he believes is the mysterious beast on camera.
Adam, co-founder of the British Bigfoot Research organisation, believes the shadowy figure could be the most convincing evidence that it’s living in Britain yet. He said: “My investigators and I were tipped off that this small patch of woodland in Friskney could be a hotspot for Bigfoot beasts. “There is at least one reported sighting here, so we decided to check it out. “We stayed there for a few hours that day and felt watched and followed the whole time. “It looks like a shadowy figure stood within the trees staring at us from afar.
I was contacted by a lovely lady named Karen who had an experience many years ago in childhood that has stayed with her throughout her life, trying to find answers to explain what she saw or how it was even possible she searched online and found others who had experienced the very same things. A strange Man like creature that others claim is impossible, but like myself and many others, that impossible creature we looked at that day, was so real it is still with us to this day, decades later the old questions of “how” “who” and “what” never go away. Hopefully by sharing her story with others Karen can finally find some answers and hopefully find others who have had the same experience and are out there thinking they too are alone.
Witness Account Karen: I had a strange experience as a child that I’d like to share. Im hoping to shed some light on what happened to me that day and some help in working out what “he” was. I was somewhere between 5- 7 years old and I was in the local woods in Stanley co. Durham with some older children just playing out as children do. The girls I was with were about 13 years old and nice sensible girls. Where I lived back then there were lots of fields and woods but it wasn’t remote or dense. It was an average town really with surrounding countryside and green belt land, small woods and streams. We were in playing in a clearing and I think there may have been a rope swing. I looked up into a tree and high in the branches I could see a ‘man’ he was crouched down and he was holding a knife in his hand. He wasn’t like a normal man and I called him an Apeman or a Monkeyman. He reminded me of a caveman or Wildman. I have included a picture I found online that resembles what I saw that day.
A men and his two daughters say they came upon a two-legged primate in Michigan.
The anonymous man, a Roscommon County resident, says they were looking for rocks to build a fire pit when the event took place on April 3, 2017.
“It was about 7.45 p.m.,” he explains. “It was a light rain. We were coming up over a ridge on the trail and when we were starting down a huge bigfoot ran across the trail in front of us,” he added on the BFRO report.
The man says his family “saw it well”.
“It was covered in long black hair with a patch of white along its back, near its shoulder.”
He recalls the biped could run “with amazing speed” and in a “forward leaning position.”
“Its arms almost touched the ground,” he said about the 9-foot-tall creature.
“We could see legs, arms and head muscles, but not the face.”
But he says that “the strangest part” was the wolf running with it, as “if they were together”.
“The wolf was like its pet, it was very strange.”
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 2015, a group of three people in Michigan reportedly came across an unidentified dog-like creature in the woods of St. Clair County.
In 2014 a woman told Cryptozoology News that she had witnessed an encounter between a group of Bigfoot and Dogman creatures in what looked like some sort of symbiosis, reminding her of the “relationship between crocodiles and hippos”.
Witness Account N: Before I start I would like to say, Im really not sure what to call the “thing” “creature” “figure” that I experienced that day, I can only tell you what it looked and sounded like, and what happened, I have looked for answers for many years now and although there is so much information out there on cryptids, bigfoots and dogmen alike, there is no definitive guide, no chart you can plot it on for an answer, or a quiz you can take to see where your score leads. You see a huge dark “figure” that moves not only on all fours but also on two, with ease, you hear it move through brush and felled trees easily as if the path was clear. I can say it was massive, it sounded like a cow or a moose breaking through that scrub, it moved down the embankment, across the road and it was off into the shrub to my side with ease, it moved fluidly with purpose and I have no idea what it was.
I was contacted by a gentleman on youtube who after hearing one of the video accounts from a witness on the Medway kindly shared his encounter with something strange whilst out on his mountain bike, as regular readers will know, mountain bikers and the mountain bike trails are a great source for witness accounts.
G: Well Deb this is the strange encounter I had in the woods late at night on a solo mountain bike ride in the winter. I will try and make sense of what happened but im not very good at putting things down on paper and its not the easiest thing to explain.. Im pretty sure this was back in 2011 as I was around 18 when it happened. It was definitely during Winter as the woods were bare of shrub and leaves and the muddy/clay ground was a nightmare to ride on . I used to be a very keen extreme mountain biker and I would go out with a group and also solo, My favourite time was the night rides during the winter months at which time I would usually have a lot of fun, but not this night.
The Caveman of Castle ring 500 B.C. and A.D. 40
While reports of Bigfoot-like hairy wild men abound throughout Britain, there is one area of the country that seems to attract more than its fair share of such activity: Castle Ring, in the county of Staffordshire. Located near the village of Cannock Wood and constructed between 500 B.C. and A.D. 40, Castle Ring is an Iron Age structure commonly known as a Hill Fort. It is 801 feet above sea level, and it main ditch and bank enclosure is fourteen feet high and, at its widest point, 853 feet across. Another of our ancient sites here in the UK
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.
