This is one of the first accounts I found when I joined the early British Bigfoot Research Team with Adam Bird. Back then the accounts were so rare we had hardly any new ones coming in, they were very few and far between, it does show just how far things have moved in the last six years alone. Now it seems as if we dont go a week without a new account coming in.
Kerry P: I wish to report something that I saw when I was driving close to Nottingham a few nights ago. I know you don’t have Sherwood Forest on your web page but I didn’t know who else to contact, there isn’t anyone else I feel I can speak to or who would believe me. Im a normal everyday Woman and I travel this road often and I saw something that I can not quite believe.
Adam Bird, founder of BRITISH BIGFOOT RESEARCH on Facebook has shared some interesting stuff in the past. This latest photo he came across actually looks like the North American Bigfoot. According to Bird, this photo is known as the ‘Skene Gorilla’, named after Loch Skene, where it was taken. Here is the story, from the ‘Aberdeenshire Press & Journal:
An anonymous photographer snapped this picture which he claims is a Gorilla stalking the shores of Loch Skene in Aberdeenshire. The snapper is quoted as saying: “I do not want to be named in case my sanity is questioned”. He continued: “I was indulging in my favourite pastime of photography. I was returning to my car when I noticed some movement in a clearing of forest. Thinking it was a deer, I got my camera ready. As I looked closer I realised I was staring at what can only described as a large ape.”
The witnesses first instinct was to run: “I believe if I had stayed for longer I could have taken some clearer photos but at the time I was more concerned for my own well being than getting the perfect shot.”He described the animal as “no bigger than the average person but very wide across the shoulders.The only thing I am sure of is that it was some type of ape. From my limited knowledge, I believe the ape I witnessed could come close to resembling a gorilla.”
Until Next Time, Deborah
The net is closing on fabled American beast Bigfoot – thanks to scientific data collated by a Birmingham man. Toby Langford has used his maths and physics background to track the half ape, half mountain man. And the 45-year-old, who, until recently, worked in the payment department of an insurance company, has posted videos of his findings on YouTube.
Armed with the data, the Great Barr statistician and his partner Marie will head to America to search for Bigfoot. Despite his painstaking research, Toby, a Birmingham University physics graduate, is yet to be convinced Bigfoot is more than an American myth. “Some people believe in Bigfoot, some people don’t,” says Toby, “I’m sitting on the fence. “That’s the problem with our species. If a video is too clear, you think it’s fake; if it’s too grainy, it’s fake. “I think it’s very difficult to dismiss eye-witness accounts. These people know they haven’t seen a bear because it’s seven feet tall and standing upright.
WELCOME to Haunted Wirral, a feature series written by world famous psychic researcher, Tom Slemen for the Globe.
In this latest tale, Tom explores Wirral’s werewolves…
No rational system of explanation can currently throw any light on the werewolf phenomenon.
How can a person change into an animal and afterwards revert to a human being again?
Our DNA contains the DNA of many ‘lower’ animals, and believe it or not, when the human genome was finally sequenced in 2003, it was discovered that humans, dogs and wolves share 84% of the same DNA.
In theory, a werewolf could be created by genetically modifying a human with lupine DNA, but this would take time, whereas the bona fide werewolf undergoes metamorphosis within the minute.
First of all thank you for allowing me to share my experience. What follows is my true account of what happened to myself and my friend Andy in late August early September of 2011.
I have attached two images one is a map of Bonaly with a RED X marking the camping spot and the other is a picture of the reservoir with a RED x marking the camping spot there.
Witness Account 7/12/2015 : I have been hiking since 2004 mostly alone and all over Ireland. In December 2015 I was in a very remote and isolated area of the Sperrin’s. I had walked to three hill tops surrounded by dense forest and was heading back up a hill towards a tree line to my car when I seen something very tall and large moving faster behind me one km away. It was walking heading down the hill towards me on a route I had just taken. I am not easily spooked but I did not hang about as I am of the opinion if it wanted to, it could have caught up with me easy. I have pondered this for a while now but I have not a clue what it was to this day, as I see people on the hills and mountains at various distances. But this was taller than a 6ft person at the distance I seen it. Eight feet plus is my guess. As I didn’t have a gun only hiking poles I was not about to wait and find out. My hiking bag now has binoculars added.
Way up on Holcombe Moor is an Army Training centre and lots of land owned by the M.O.D Posted with danger signs it is not accessible to your average human. But as this area is very close to the source of the River Irwell along which many British Wildman sightings lie. I recently got back in touch with the witness to see if they would appear in the new documentary Elusive, but sadly ill health and fear of being identified prevented him from appearing, but he did manage to fill me in a little on some of the details.
This is the original Account, which was taken by A. Bird in 2013.
D. B witness statement: I am an ex service personnel who wished to tell you about two separate sightings of what I believes is the same creature, over an eight week period in the 1980’s, both happened to me whilst training, up in the hills close to Holcombe, This is only a short hop from the Forest of Bowland and has many different habitats, with high wind swept hills and low valleys where its wooded and damp. It rains all the time. And is an ideal area for the M.O.D and the land is posted for mines and artillery.
