Daily 2 Cents: Clearing the Name of 3 Devon Witches -- Big Cats in Virginia -- 'Finding Bigfoot' Plodding Through Southwest Pennsylvania


Campaign to clear the name of Devon witches hanged for dabbling in the occult

A campaign has been launched to clear the name of the last three witches hanged in England - who met their fate in Devon.

The infamous trio, knows as the 'Bideford Witches', were put to death in 1682 for supposedly dabbling in the occult.

Temperance Lloyd, Susannah Edwards and Mary Trembles became the last three people hanged in England for witchcraft.

But historians and MPs claim they were targeted because they were old and suffered dementia.

A new campaign to have them officially pardoned has been launched to mark the largest ever gathering of witches together.

The event, the Grand Witches Tea Party, will see hundreds gather at Rougemont Castle in Exeter, Devon - 322 years since they were hanged in August 1682.

Modern witch Jackie Juno, 51, hopes the campaign will persuade Exeter City Council to take them seriously and reconsider.

She said: "By getting them pardoned we are making a statement that this bigoted behaviour should not be tolerated nowadays.

"It would prove that humanity could change for the better. It would also be laying the women to rest in a way that resolves the mistakes of history.

"If you were unmarried or childless or sometimes simply owned a cat you were regarded with suspicion."

Records show Lloyd was accused of "having discourse or familiarity" with the devil and "having used some magical art, sorcery or witchcraft".

Edwards and Trembles, who both lived with her, were also arrested before all three were executed at Exeter Prison in Devon.

Historians say the women were convicted on hearsay evidence, which included one of them being accused of turning into a magpie.

Even the justices at the time did not believe they were guilty but were forced to respond to an angry mob that was baying for a hanging.

Last year author Christine Nash set up an online petition to call for their public pardon but despite support, which included Exeter MP Ben Bradshaw, it was unsuccessful. - Plymouthherald

Shake-up at James Randi Educational Foundation

An interesting development in the last few hours at the James Randi Educational Foundation (JREF): a short statement has been posted to their website under the title "Los Angeles Office Closed", advising that the headquarters of the organisation is moving across the country to Virginia. Oh, and also as an aside (in a statement released at the end of a long weekend) that the President of the organisation, D.J. Grothe, "is no longer with the JREF"!

In order to achieve cost-savings and greater efficiency, the Los Angeles office of the JREF has closed effective September 1, 2014. All operations have been moved to Falls Church, Virginia.

DJ Grothe is no longer with the JREF. James Randi has taken over as acting President.

This restructuring is part of an enhanced educational agenda aimed at inspiring an investigative spirit in a new generation of critical thinkers by engaging children and their parents, as well as educators and the general public, in how to think about the many extraordinary claims we hear every day.

Big Cats in Virginia

A funny thing happened while Tim Bennett weed-whacked on a Scottsville farm two weeks ago: a big black cat crossed his path.

It was a really big black cat.

“He was all black, had a round face and long, black tail,” said Bennett, a seasoned woodsman who runs a landscaping business near Scottsville.

Bennett is pretty sure the cat was a black cougar, the elusive cousin of the elusive mountain lion that has been reported in a variety of Virginia mountain counties but has yet to be proven to exist.

Cougar sightings are commonplace with the big cats having been reported everywhere from Lynchburg and Bath County on to Rockingham County. Cougars themselves, however, are not as commonplace as their sightings.

In fact, no mountain lions, catamounts, pumas, American panthers, painters or mountain cats — all the same species — are believed to be full-time residents of the Blue Ridge Mountains, according to wildlife officials.

But Bennett’s eyes — and the odd behavior of a mare in a field — told him something different.

“I was doing some weed-whacking along the stable fence and one of the horses was there with me. I was going along with the weed whacker and she all of a sudden went up on her hind legs and kicked her front legs out,” Bennett recalled. “When she came down, she ran toward the stable and stopped. I shut down the weed whacker because I thought that’s what upset her.”

It wasn’t.

Bennett said the horse stared down toward the pond and pawed the ground with her front feet, making a distressed noise.

“I walked along the fence line to see what she was looking at,” he said.

That’s when he saw the cat.

“I proceeded to walk toward it and the cat proceeded to walk away, down toward the pond and then into the hollow. It walked with its head low and its tail toward the ground,” Bennett said. “It wasn’t like the cat was afraid of me. It was like it just knew that what was walking toward it wasn’t something it was interested in.”

There are doubts about the existence of black-furred or melanistic cougars despite thousands of reports over a hundred years because no bodies have ever been recovered. The Eastern cougar has been declared extinct, although its relative, the Western cougar, is alive and well in the Rocky Mountains and points west.

The only photo known to exist of a black cougar was shot in the 1950s in the Southwest. That cougar had dark gray fur on its sides and back, but pale gray fur on its belly.

“There has never been a documented case of an all-black cougar and the ones you see on television are all either jaguars or leopards,” said Mike Fies, wildlife research biologist at the state Department of Game and Inland Fisheries. “The Eastern cougar is considered extinct, with the last one being confirmed around 1880. There are no known resident populations. I haven’t seen one in the 30 years I’ve been here, and that makes it hard to accept that there is a resident population.”

Just because it hasn’t been proved doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist.

“We never say never about these things,” Fies said. “But we still have no evidence of their being in Virginia.”

Ed Creasy, on whose property Bennett saw the cat, believes.

“[Bennett] came to the house and he was kind of shaken. He said he saw a large cat with a black tail and a rounded face down by the pond,” Creasy recalled. “We found a footprint where it looked like the animal had walked around the pond.”

The former FBI agent did a quick preliminary investigation, making a plaster cast of a paw print.

“I hadn’t done a plaster cast in years and had to go to the store to get what I needed,” Creasy said. “When we got back to the pond, water had just started to seep into the print, which meant we had been there pretty close behind it. I dried the print lightly with some paper towel and made the cast.”

The cast is inconclusive, though what it shows closely resembles a cat print, with an apparent trefoil paw pad at the back end.

The idea of a cougar prowling the Blue Ridge foothills might be improbable, but it isn’t impossible. In 2011, a cougar was killed on the streets of Connecticut. The animal had walked for three years across six states only to meet its death.

According to the Connecticut Department of Energy and Environmental Protection, DNA tests showed the cougar made its way east from South Dakota’s Black Hills, its image captured on trail cameras in Minnesota, Wisconsin, Michigan’s Upper Peninsula and New York before the animal was struck and killed by a 2006 Hyundai Tucson outside Milford.

The cat’s death was not in vain, according to Science Daily. It taught researchers about cougar dispersals in which young male cats hit the road looking for mates. The dispersals from the West and Midwest can go far to the east and likely have occurred sporadically for many years.

That doesn’t mean that a lone male or female in a strange state will meet up with a lover and raise a family of resident cats.

“Neither males nor females will stop to establish a home range without the presence of possible mates. So, ultimately, for a new breeding population to start, a male and female who have dispersed separately from the West must randomly stumble upon each other in the 2 million square miles of habitat east of their range,” said officials from Mountainlion.org, an organization dedicated to preserving cougar populations.

“These random bets on exact location and timing, repeated over and over, represent the lion’s only chance for survival,” the publication states.

Sightings in the Midwest and East prior to 2000 commonly were attributed to rural myth, mistaken identity or the release or escape of lions once held as pets. Thanks to the killed cat in Connecticut, however, biologists say some of those sightings could have been dispersed males.

The nearest native pumas to Virginia are Florida panthers, which range from Florida into Alabama. There are believed to be only about 200 of them, although there also have been reports of cougar tracks and sightings in West Virginia and North Carolina.

Still, it’s unlikely cougars have filtered into the Blue Ridge, since no bodies, no photos and no feces have been found, Fies said. Regardless, he receives a lot of reports of puma sightings.

“That week, I had three reported sightings,” he said. “I’ve been in public meetings and asked how many people have seen a cougar and have almost everyone raise their hand. It just seems to me that if that many sightings were accurate, we’d see some evidence.”

Crozet-area residents have reported puma sightings for years, with a flurry around 2008.

“It’s been quiet recently, but for a while people were reporting them every few months,” said Mike Marshall, editor of the Crozet Gazette. “I think a lot of people don’t report them because they are afraid of being made fun of. I’m personally convinced they’re here.”

Fies said he has no doubt those who reported seeing cougars saw something; he just doubts they saw cougars.

“People misidentify them with a lot of things,” he said. “Bobcats are in the woods and from a distance, people easily mistake dogs for cougars. A lot of photos have been shown to be something else when they are reviewed.”

Fies said wildlife biologists doubt cougars would just disappear into the mountains without a trace. The Connecticut cat left tracks, trail photographs and scat across its path so that it was easy to follow once found.

“There’s no doubt that mountain lions are moving eastward. The Western cougar is definitely moving eastward,” he said. “Maybe there will be a time when some will colonize Virginia in the future.”

Bennett, however, said he believes that, be it Florida puma or Western cougar, there is at least one cat out there. - Roanoke

'Finding Bigfoot' Plodding Through Southwest Pennsylvania

The Bigfoot hunters starring on Animal Planet's hit television series "Finding Bigfoot" went on a search for the mythical creature in southwestern Pennsylvania, an area that locals claim is a hot spot for supernatural activity and Bigfoot sightings.

On the popular program, which is now in its fifth season, four researchers travel to a different location in the United States and interview people who claim to have seen Bigfoot. Then the researchers set up re-enactments of the sighting to try to prove the existence of the mysterious creature.

The team consists of Bigfoot Field Research Organization (BFRO) President Matt Moneymaker, researchers James "Bobo" Fay and Cliff Barackman, and scientist Ranae Holland.

On Aug. 26, the producers of "Finding Bigfoot" explored Uniontown to find "a Sasquatch in these woods."

According to the Herald-Standard, Bigfoot believers from as far as Ohio and West Virginia were among the more than 200 people who attended a town hall meeting where people shared stories about their interactions with the ape-like creature. The meeting was held at the State Theatre Center for the Arts in Uniontown.

"We knew we needed a venue that was capable of holding all these people," said show producer Sean Mantooth. "It's beautiful and centrally located in downtown Uniontown. It was a great location."

Erica Miller, the executive director of the theater, mentioned that the theater received publicity from the show.

"We've had a lot of famous names and faces in here, but it's not every day we film a TV show here," she said, adding "It's great exposure for the theater."

"This is the best town hall meeting we've ever had - the sheer amount of stories we had - we literally did not have enough time before we had to start wrapping things up," said Mantooth.

"We've gotten a lot of support from the local community. They've been very welcoming to the cast and crew and made it a really good episode for us," he continued. - Latin Post

SIGN THE PETITION

Currently, there is no centralized registry or database of persons who have gone missing in our national parks and forests or on Bureau of Land Management lands. If search and rescue parties are unable to locate the missing, no records are required to be kept by our government about the missing person case or the circumstances surrounding the event. When remains of the missing are found, again, no records are required to be maintained.

It is time to demand that a national, publicly accessible registry/database be created in which all missing persons are accounted for in our national parks and forests and on BLM lands. The purpose of this would be to make the government accountable for keeping track of the missing, to inform the public of the facts surrounding missing persons cases on public lands, as well as keeping account of all missing individuals and the circumstances under which they went missing on public lands.

Turkey: Air, Water & Underground Anomalies


Here are a few examples of anomalous activity observed in the Republic of Turkey over recent years...and includes a strange sighting from last week:


Gaziantep News reports they received an email from Ahmet Baygümüş with a UFO photo attached. Baygümüş says on August 24 at around 7 pm he was taking pictures of the landscape and the sunset with his phone. He did not see anything unusual. However, when he reviewed the pictures later he saw a strange light in the image.

Baygümüş says he returned to the location the next day at the same time, but did not see anything unusual.

Baygümüş sent the image to Gaziantep News hoping they could offer an explanation as to what he might have seen. Gaziantep News suggested it appears to be some sort of light beam, and listed Baygümüş’ contact information for people to share with him their thoughts.

Istanbul, Kumburgaz, Turkey UFO




Turkey has a long history of unexplained aerial phenomena dating back centuries. The Kumburgaz UFO incident is a more recent case that took place over multiple dates between 2007 and 2009 when there were multiple unknown aerial objects reported across Turkey. During this time a series of interesting videos were taken by the local resident Murat Yalcin of anomalous objects hovering over the sea. They were described by many people who live in Kumburgaz as unusual round, disc, and cigar shaped craft. They submitted reports with the Sirius UFO and Space Science Research which is Turkey's primary UFO reporting organization. This case was like no other because the video footage captured extremely close views of the objects.

The footage was recorded with a camera that had a lens converter adapter capable of filming at 200 times optical achieving a great amount of detail. In addition there is one factor that makes this case credible. The video was analyzed by "The Scientific and Technology Research Board of Turkey" and "TUG National Observatory" which are both sponsored by the state and highly influential. They reviewed the footage intending to discovering a hoax but were unsuccessful. The original cassettes of film have been studied by people from Japan, Chile, Brazil, and Russia. After several attempts, to this date nobody has been able to successfully debunk the videos and they remain unidentified.

I received the following email from Huseyin in Turkey on Sunday, December 5th. I needed to clean up some of the broken English:

Dear Sir - I write to you after witnessing a creature near my home in Ahlat, Turkey on the 26th of September this year. My friends and I were taking a day long boat ride on Van Golu (Lake Van). Near east Akdamar Island we noticed a violent boil on the surface. When we got closer, I saw a large eel-like creature with a high long fin across the back. I attempted to take a photograph but the creature dove into the darkness. Since I was so close to the creature I was able to get a very reliable description - about 20 meters long, mottled brown with a high ray or fin that extended across the entire back. I got a glimpse of the head which had round eyes that were front set, not like that of a fish, with a pair of ears or flaps.

I presented the description to a biologist and government specialist the following week but was told that I most likely saw a sturgeon or another uncommon species of fish. This is not what I witnessed. I sent an email to 2 other crypto organizations but neither responded. My friend recommended you. What is your opinion of my sighting? Please contact me at your convenience. Thank you - Huseyin

I wrote back to Huseyin. His reply didn't offer much more information other than there had been reports of a similar creature in the past and a more recent sighting a few weeks ago near another island on the lake. He also stated that the only fish known to survive in Lake Van are the Pearl Mullet or Darekh.


Sightings of the Lake Van monster were first reported about two years ago, but further evidence was offered on Tuesday: bad quality amateur pictures of something long and dark moving in the middle of the lake.

After each sighting, professional camera crews have rented boats to try to capture the alleged beast clearly on film, but were unsuccessful each time.

The subject became an obsession for 26-year-old Unal Kozak, a Van University teaching assistant who has been talking to eyewitnesses since the first sightings.

Stationing himself at spots where most of the sightings were reported, Kozak says he saw and filmed the so-called monster on three occasions. Kozak also wrote a book on the creature, including drawings of the monster based on the descriptions of some 1,000 witnesses.

He says the creature is about 15 meters (49.5 feet) long. Public opinion is divided over whether the Lake Van monster is a clever hoax to attract visitors to a region that could use some tourist revenue.

The city of Van is in an underdeveloped area of eastern Turkey that for years has lost out to holiday resorts in the west of the country.

The pictures have been sent to Cambridge University for examination, and Jacques Cousteau, the world-famous marine biologist, is expected to visit and examine the lake.


This lake was formed some 6,000 years ago when the volcano that is Turkey's lesser known Nemrut Dağı (Mt. Nemrut) erupted and threw the entire top of the mountain into the lake, thereby cutting off the water's natural escape route into a river near Muş. The waters of Lake Van are known for being highly alkaline, which means that it's actually possible to wash clothes in them without using soap. Swimmers also find the water extremely buoyant, although pollution around the main population centers means that it's not really that wise to risk bathing.

Lake Van is home to all sorts of unusual beasties, some of them real, others entirely fanciful. Perhaps its most prized resident is the inci kefalı (pearl mullet), a fish so revered that it's spawned commemorative statues not just in Van itself but also in the small town of Erciş. Then there is the Van Canavarı, the Lake Van Monster, a creature uncannily like Scotland's Loch Ness Monster and just as elusive -- the closest you'll come to it is the statue in Van's Feqiye Teyran Park where a diplodocus-like creature can be seen wrapping its long neck around other local features.

The Derinkuyu Underground City

Location: Derinkuyu, Nigde, Turkey
Date: 1982
Time: evening

During a localized UFO wave in the region a medium M.N. (refused to divulge his name) decided to visit the famous underground “galleries” at Derinkuyu. However while doing this he became lost in the caves. While attempting to return to the surface level he suddenly encountered a black hooded figure that was standing in a cavity on the wall of the galleries. The faceless entity just stood there staring at the witness with two glowing reddish eyes. Terrified the witness attempted to run from the location but realized that he was totally unable to move, he then apparently passed out. Later a group of tourists found him lying on the ground but apparently unharmed. He soon recovered and never returned to the galleries again.

Comments: There are other reports of bizarre underground dwellers in Derinkuyu Turkey - Albert Rosales

-----

The underground city at Derinkuyu has all the usual amenities found in other underground complexes across Cappadocia, such as wine and oil presses, stables, cellars, storage rooms, refectories, and chapels. Unique to the Derinkuyu undergorund city complex and located on the second floor is a spacious room with a barrel vaulted ceiling. It has been reported that this room was used as a religious school and the rooms to the left were studies. Between the third and fourth levels is a vertical staircase. This passage way leads to a cruciform church on the lowest level.

The large 55 m ventilation shaft appears to have been used as a well. The shaft also provided water to both the villagers above and, if the outside world was not accessible, to those in hiding. First built by the Phrygians in the 8th–7th centuries B.C according to the Turkish Department of Culture, the Derinkuyu underground city was enlarged in the Byzantine era. The city could be closed from inside with large stone doors. With storerooms and wells that made long stays possible, the city had air shafts which are up to 100 feet (30 m) deep. Derinkuyu is the largest excavated underground city in Turkey. The complex has a total 11 floors, though many floors have not been excavated. It has an area of 2,000 square feet, with a possible total area of 7,000 square feet (650 m2). Each floor could be closed off separately. The city was connected with other underground cities through miles of long tunnels. The city could accommodate between 20,000 and 50,000 people.

Derinkuyu is by no means the only such city you can visit here. There are actually 40 or so subterranean settlements in the area although only a few are open to the public.

It is in Derinkuyu District that is almost 30 km to Nevsehir, on Nevsehir - Nigde road. - cappadociaturkey.net

Daily 2 Cents: Wampus Cat Encounter -- Humanoids in Alabama -- Reptilian Shapeshifters?


Wampus Cat Encounter

Received the following report this morning:

Hello...

I heard the Coast to Coast AM program last night about Cryptids. I heard some talk about Wampus cats. Well I grew up in west central GA right on the GA/AL line. We lived out in the country and had a swamp down behind our house. I had a dog named Silver Chief. When he was a puppy I was a baby. We grew up together. I had graduated high school when he died. Anyway that dog was not afraid of anything man or beast. We had been having some chickens killed at night & thought it might be a fox or something. One night I heard the chicken hollering so I grabbed a flashlight and a .22 rifle and ran to the chicken house. It was dark but I saw some big and white looking jump over the chicken wire fence. It was 7 ft high. I went in and there were six dead chickens.

It was not long after that on another night I heard my dog barking. I could tell by his bark he had something treed. All of a sudden he screamed and ran back to the house. He had never run from anything. My brother got the .22 and walked up into the woods. He was walking around and heard claws scratching on tree bark. He looked up right into the eyes of what we called a Wampus Cat. It was getting ready to pounce on him. My brother who was an excellent hunter just threw the rifle barrel up without taking time to aim and shot the cat right through the head.

He brought the cat home and I had never seen anything like it. It was solid yellow/white colored. Had long 3 or 4 inch fur, and a tail about 4 or 5 inches long. Even with the short tail he was 3 feet long from nose to tail. We skinned him, salted his skin and stretched it on the barn door.

I remember that we used to hear it screaming in the swamp at night. Sometimes it sounded like a woman screaming and sometimes it sounded like a baby crying.

I have never seen anything like it before or since. It had huge teeth that had grooves in the gums and lips on the opposite of the teeth. It had huge feet.

Here is a cartoon drawing (above) I did of it several years ago. Most people don't believe we actually killed it till they saw it's hide on the barn door. - PGD

Humanoids in Alabama

The following report was forwarded by a reader:

Mr. Lon,

I wrote you back in the winter about a strange light I saw move from about a half mile away to right in front of me in like two seconds flat in Cullman, Alabama. Well I watch the sky often late at night and see lots of strange things but this different. My brother Joey, his wife and 8 year old daughter were in Cullman two weeks ago late at night. They were looking for houses to rent in the area and by the time they got on the road to go back to Birmingham it was about 10:00pm. My brother his wife and daughter swear by this story I'm about to tell you and my brother is in the Army, his wife was in the Army. I got two frantic phone calls and a text each from them to call them asap. My brother said he looked over in to the woods they were passing and saw green laser beam lights going in all direction, so they pulled over and turned their lights off. Within two minutes they saw four human looking figures come out of the woods. They couldn't make out their features but it scared my niece. All of a sudden they see headlights from another car and as they watched the figures disappeared on the right and appeared on their left close to the car. My brother picked up his gun but got the hell out of there. They said it took two hours to calm my niece down..they believed it was kids until they saw them vanish and then reappear on the other side of the road. I always see things in the sky here but my brother never believed me until he and his family saw this. His wife is in denial about what she saw but I talked to her that night and she was scared. My niece is very animated about what she saw. She wouldn't go down the road it happened on with me in the day time. I had to tell you what happened, it was to weird. Are there any other sightings you know of in this area? Thanks for everything. JSG

Reptilian Shapeshifters in Grass Valley

Ghosts & the Supernatural - HPI Reptilianologists headed to Grass Valley to investigate some out of the ordinary claims.A woman says that she witnessed her neighbor morph from a human being to a reptilian. Note: This later became her boyfriend and not her neighbor, the story changed. Now that his identity was exposed, he informed his reptilian colleagues. It so happens his colleagues live in the same neighborhood.

reptile shapeshifters humans 1 The client discovered she lives in a community of Reptilians. The Reptilians now dress in black and in the middle of the night, they gas her room, placing the client into a sleeping slumber. They remove something from her body on a nightly basis. She even has a photograph of an incision on her back. She discovered a strange gas pipeline that goes into her bedroom. It will be the mission of the HPI Reptilianologists to discover what exactly this pipeline is. We will conduct surveillance on the home and the property to see if there are strange men in black creeping around her home.

In The Biggest Secret (1999), Icke introduced the idea of the “Reptoid Hypothesis.” He identifies the Brotherhood as originating from reptilians from the constellation Draco, who walk on two legs and appear human, and who live in tunnels and caverns inside the earth. They are the same race of gods known as the Anunnaki in the Babylonian creation myth, Enûma Eliš. Tyson Lewis of Montclair State University and Richard Kahn of the University of North Dakota write that Icke has taken his “ancient astronaut” narrative from the Israeli-American writer, Zecharia Sitchin. Icke’s idea of “inner-earth reptilians” is also not new, though Barkun writes that Icke has done more than most to expand it. Read more at Costa Rican Times
