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.
“I live in a small town in Devon (UK) just south of Dartmoor and there have been many sightings of what appear to be werewolves in the fields near here and up onto the moors themselves. The most known sighting was in 1996 and was by Emily Watton. She was walking here two dogs; a collie and a labrador/springer spaniel cross, on the moors in early October when the dogs started going crazy. Then both, at the same instant, turned around and started trying to run in the opposite direction Emily was headed. Emily kept hold of the leads and while trying to turn the dogs around, she saw a huge creature “about 7 or 8 feet tall” running towards her. It was “wolf-like but the forelegs were much longer and the chest much deeper. It was covered in fine black, grey and brown fur and hair brilliantly yellow eyes.” The snout was longer than either of her dogs’ and she could see fangs when the creature opened its mouth. She started to run but the creature was, in her estimation, at least 4 times as fast as she was. When the creature got about 20 feet from her, the dogs suddenly turned and started barking at it. Emily kept running but as she looked over her shoulder, she saw the creature stand up on its hind legs, grab the two dogs, then throw the collie into a rock and rip out her labrador/spaniel’s throat”
When she got back to town and told her husband what had happened she was taken to hospital. I’m not sure what happened to her after that but what i was told is that she died of shock that night………
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.
The Yorkshire Post reported some very strange tales from Yorkshire.
The fearsome wolves of Yorkshire: Inside the mysterious Wold Newton Triangle
The Yorkshire Wolds may be home to rolling green hills, hidden valleys and ancient villages, but this seemingly peaceful stretch of Yorkshire is harbouring a much darker side behind its picture perfect appearance.
Witness: Pam (full name on file)
Time: 11:00 PM
City: Shelbyville, KY (exact location on file)
Describe Your Encounter: “I am guessing as to the date since it has been almost 1 year since this sighting. It was a Sunday night and there was a full or nearly full moon with a few clouds and very mild temperature. I am certain of the time of the sighting since I normally walk my dog no later than 9:00pm, but I was late on this particular night because I had been watching a show on TV and was late getting out with her. This was an unusual location to see something like this because I live in a nice, older neighborhood, but it is within a mile of wide open country. I follow the same route walking my dog every evening and I was almost back to my house when I stopped because I saw 2 very large black, hairy things coming down the driveway of the house across the street from my house.
Interpretation of the Waddy Werewolf by Terry Thomas
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
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.
Life in a secluded Russian village can be boring, but when boredom threatens peoples’ lives – it’s not funny. Fortunately for a Russian police officer – a man with a gun was not a sharpshooter. Original Source
The police department in the Novgorod region of Russia must have been surprised by the request for help from one of the villagers, who claimed that his house was “surrounded by werewolves.” Despite the absurdity of the story, the police decided to check up on the man. However, when they arrived at his house he shot and wounded one of the police officers, barricaded himself inside his house and continued firing at the law enforcement personnel.
According to the local police representative, Special Rapid Response Unit (SOBR) had to storm the building using stun grenades and successfully apprehended the 52-year-old gunman. The man will face charges for assault on the police officer, who was transported to the hospital in serious condition via a helicopter.
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)
Im pleased to announce that Film Maker and alternative media specialist Christopher Turner will be making weekly Vlogs on all things cryptid and many of the Alternative Genres. All subjects will be covered and it will include many of the UK witness themselves and researchers who will pass on tips and hints to help you get started. If there are subjects you would like discussed please let us know, in the comments below or by visiting Chris’s Youtube channel , you will also find many research videos and the Elusive trailers. Chris will also be hosting a Cryptid Conference in May 2018 with many speakers, for information comment on the video below or contact either myself at email@example.com or Chris at firstname.lastname@example.org
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.
