The unknown world: How I tracked Bigfoot through the Malaysian jungle. Jan Mcgirk

The Independent reported: Jan McGirk joined a team of paranormal investigators to check out reports of 10ft giant apes in the rainforest near Kota Tinggi. This is what they found.

At first glance it might have seemed like nothing. A four-inch impression in the mud of the Malaysian rainforest. On closer inspection, however, it seemed as if it might be the astounding find the expedition had been hoping for. A footprint of the creature known variously as Bigfoot, Sasquatch, the tropical Yeti or – to locals – the Mawas. Said to grow up to 10- feet tall, with an awesome armspan, a trio of these undiscovered hominids were at the centre of a flurry of unconfirmed sightings by frightened plantation workers three months ago. And in the fading light of the Bukit Lantang woods on the fringe of dense forest in Johor state, a single splayed print appeared to offer the most compelling evidence yet that we were on the trail of the mighty beast.

Rivacre, Ellesmere Port “a blacker than the night Wolf.”

Billy Thompson. I am reporting an encounter that happened many years ago now. I was about 9/10 and was out with my grandparents, Brian and Margaret. We were going for a walk down Rivacre valley in the north west of England in a place called Ellesmere port. I can’t remember much of how we got there or what happened after really. We were walking along and my nan said she spotted what looked like a big Puma looking through the bushes at us. She walked closer to get a better look when my grandad started shouting “stop Margaret” by now “it” had moved to the right but was trying to come around behind her, so my grandad shouted “it’s flanking you”

Grovely Woods

The Twilight Paranormal Group did some night investigation in Grovely wood, an area of reported wild man activity since the 1800. Whilst there the group experienced some very wildman like activity, Original Source for the full account.

 

Team Leaders Notes. Grovely Wood is situated on the outskirts of Wilton. With a Roman road cutting straight through the woodland and prehistoric earthworks contained within the area, Grovely also has a historic story to tell. Grovely Woods has two specific and most interesting stories associated with its area. Grovely Wood is a place that I have always wanted to investigate. I have been fascinated by these woods ever since I was a small child as people used to talk about them to each other and about the goings on there. I had only visited the woods once when I took my dog for a walk one afternoon. I was with a friend and although I did feel as if I was being watched, the feeling was not sinister. However my friend was afraid and could not wait for the walk to be over. Other people have also told me stories of their experiences down at Grovely. Recently one of my colleagues told me that she was walking through the woods with her child in a pushchair and her dog. She said that the atmosphere was so intense, she could not bear it. She also felt as if someone was watching her and she turned around and fled from the area as she felt so unsafe. Paranormal Investigator, Vikki has also had many strange and frightening experiences in Grovely wood when she was younger.

A Lady in Portugal Tells of Her Encounter with a ‘Neanderthal’ and other Bigfoot sightings

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.

In 2015, a man in North Carolina reported to have seen a 10-feet-tall Neanderthal.

Neandertals were a species of humans believed to have gone extinct about 40,000 years ago. Some people, such as a state trooper from Washington who claimed to feed ape-like animals many refer to as Bigfoot, believe the cryptid could be some sort of “primitive human species”.

Serra da Strela, the highest mountain range in Portugal, is known for their Vodafone ski resort.

Mike Werewolf Journal 12/13. Growls and Footprints, Structures and Dens.

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

Temp- 12.5c

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.

Strange experiences at home. Mysterious Noises, Growls and Howls in the night.

Liam Witness Account: I contacted you today as I have been experiencing some strange howls and noises close to home and I wondered if any of your readers had experienced anything of a similar nature. I’d say the first time I had ever noticed anything I would have been about 10-11 yrs old, it was just after I’d gone to bed in the summer and there were dogs barking everywhere along the streets and I was at my window listening to all the noise and commotion, after around half an hour of it starting all the barking stopped suddenly and I could hear a faint howl that sounded as if it was kind of distorted.  Not a howl you would expect to hear like foxes or dogs, this howl was really strange.  So I went and got my Mum so she too could listen to it and tell me what it was.  She was stood at the window with me smirking at first as if she was just going along with it to humour me as I was young, but then she heard it herself and her face immediately dropped and she quickly said “Oh it’s nothing”  I almost believed her but as soon as she said it she went all the way around the house checking that the doors were locked and closing all of the curtains. This might have been at around 9 pm because I remember it being around summer time and it was still pretty light outside
The second time was quite a long while after as I’m 21 now and I started to notice things again late last year around September time. It had started with minor things such as what I can only describe as hearing what sounded like a dustbin being dragged down the street at a ridiculous speed, then later in the night there were obvious sounds of things being thrown and hitting the wire fence on the field across the road from my house. I think the strangest of that was possibly hearing those noises and then hearing the horses in the field sounding like they were petrified and stampeding around.  There were two nights where there was really long drawn out groaning sounds that would get closer to the house and then fade away, and this would repeat and then get closer again, both times they’d persist for around about an hour, maybe slightly longer but during that time every animal including the usually very loud dogs in the street were completely silent?  When the noise stopped it seemed like every animal was in panic mode, or shaken up somehow?
One thing I will mention but I’m not entirely sure if it has a reasonable explanation or not is a night in August last year, I could hear a toddler murmuring outside on the street as if it was upset and I shrugged it off because the folk across the road often have their grand kids round and they are usually playing in the garden at daft times till late.  After I had tried to ignore it for probably 10 minutes it went from murmuring to absolutely stomach churning screaming, It didn’t sound like kids playing at this point so I jumped out of bed and got dressed, I grabbed the bar we use to open and close the loft hatch without even realising and I ran outside thinking some child was being hurt or abducted? The moment that I got outside it stopped, everything was deadly silent, no-one was around, and that’s when it hit me about hearing from people with Dogman and Bigfoot encounters, where the creature may imitate sounds of children in distress or shout your name to lure people outside?
But at that point I put that out of my mind and I tried to rationalise the experience and I ran up and down at least five different streets looking for whatever made the noise and I saw nobody, and I didn’t see anyone who had come outside because they heard the racket too? There wasn’t even a house with its lights on with people looking out off the windows or twitching the curtains, it was deadly silent. The next day I asked my parents about what had happend in the night and they didn’t even know I’d gone out of the house let alone heard a kid screaming.  Which I thought was strange because I literally burst out of my room and sprinted down the stairs not caring about making noise or waking anyone up. I have a recording of the “groaning” type noise I would be interested in knowing what people think it was because I have no idea at all? (included in video below)

Growls in the Night, Unknown Animal or a Creature Unseen?

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.
