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.
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)
This is a transcript of a conversation taking place between a well known Wild Camper who is very well respected in the community and has camped in some of Northumberlands most remote areas and a Farmer who lives in the North East of england not to far from Harwood Forest and has farmed there Man and Boy as we say in the North. Both Gentleman have a very good knowledge of what is moving around in nature, they are used to the sounds and tricks on the eye that nature can play. Weather can make a mess of many woods, and the guys in the North East are used to this kind of damage, so anything standing out as unusual to them is of course of great interest to me. I am very grateful to Fell Wanderer and the Farmer for allowing me to share this with you guys. I can put you in touch with Fell Wanderer Or Neil Young if you have something similar you would like to report, as they will understand with not only their knowledge of Wild Camping but also as they has taken a number of witness accounts from people already.

England — A 48-year-old woman claims she saw a Bigfoot-like creature at a public park with a golf course and a tennis court in the north west of England. Retired cook Deborah Hatswell told Cryptozoology News that she was truanting school in 1982 when she and a friend had the face to face encounter with the beast at around 2 p.m.. “We decided to skip the afternoon lessons and go and hide out in the park till the 3.30 p.m. bell. There is an old mansion house in the North of the park, a golf course and lots of trees and bushes and places to hide,” she said. Mrs Hatswell states they had been playing around the Buile Hill Park area for about two hours when they decided to lay on the ground to take a break. “We were just being silly giggling and playing around, it was warm and sunny and a really nice day.”
Suddenly, she said, she noticed a “slight movement” on the bushes to her right. Thinking it was a teacher about to put an end to their truancy, she became worried. “Or maybe a local lad messing about. In the split seconds it took the bushes to part, I went from being worried to terrified. In my town, there was no talk of bigfoot or monsters, although we do have the famous haunted Ordsall hall, but that’s about as strange as it gets, or so I thought.” The young girl’s worst nightmares reportedly materialized when she caught a glimpse of the “thing” peeking at the pair through the green vegetation. “A huge ape-man type thing leant forward and just looked at me, from about mid-chest I could see him and he was in my mind a monster,” Hatswell recalls.
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.
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.

Isabella here from the high hills of Scotland where we’ve been stranded with snow and ice like much of the rest of the country this winter. This will be a short journal – but I think a very significant one.
I would like to report an experience that happened to me just last month (Aug 2017), I was unsure about coming forward, and to be honest I still am, I was in Brackagh which borders a road and is near human habitation in Co Armagh. I was out as I like to walk and I was exploring an old stomping ground of many years from my youth, I spent a lot of time down here as a lad with my friends or on my own, for hours on end. Back then the area was different, as this is now a nature reserve and is used by dog walkers on a loop walk trail, you can leave the trails and paths if you want too, but I doubt anybody does. There are seven peat rompers ( raised narrow walks) and I had walked three or four of them at least that day already, so id been out for quite some time at this point.
One of my favourite channels is the wonderful Fire Side Tales by D. L. Soucy and I was delighted years ago when he added an account of the capture of a wildman in Bakewell Derbyshire. The Video speaks for itself, as do all of his others, the perfect thing to watch on a bad weather day, curled up by the fire. This account I feel is very important in the history of the UK Wildman accounts, as the Wildman in question was seen by many witnesses and even police officers. I have contacted the police archives for any information available, and I would like to draw your attention to the “hut” that was found by the search party as you can see it is very similar to finds from all across the UK and America.
Here is a transcript of the account:
Hello everybody welcome to another episode of Bigfoot tales and today I head over to Great Britain and we’re going to look at a story that was in a magazine from the late 1890s in the area of Derbyshire England, it’s interesting to note that there are some photographs within the article that show a very interesting structure similar to today’s finds from a publication called Wide World Magazine
In the October of 1904 and written by Joe Adam and it describes how people who lived in a village in Derbyshire had to deal with a so called wild man of the woods, it was an extraordinary being as they put it who apparently wanted to live in but a primitive way.
