Weekend 2 Cents: 7 Ft. Monkey & Human-Faced Downtown Miami -- 112-Pound Catfish Hooked in NC -- Hellish Monster in Amish Country

7 Ft. Monkey & Human-Faced Downtown Miami

John in Miami, Florida called in to tell of a weird sighting he had:

“Back in February I saw what looked like a large monkey about 7 feet tall or so. And I was able to call the zoo and give a description to them on the tape. And I was trying to get the department of natural resources for the state to warn them that this thing was running around. It was around for a couple of hours that night. This was in the downtown area, believe it or not. But this was kinda like a wilderness area near the river. In Florida, in Miami. I didn't smell anything. I eventually got within 20 feet of the thing and tried to get a you said, my camera failed and wouldn't work. I just couldn't get a picture. I couldn't get it with my cellphone either and the strangest thing of the entire night, I don't even like to tell this to people because it sounds like I'm crazy...but the end of that night, that thing was joined by an owl. An owl showed up! It had, what looked like the face of a man on it. And I’ve had nightmares about that since. I couldn't believe I saw something that way but I did. I wish I could have gotten that on film. And they both more or less went toward the ground and they both just... dissolved. It was like they both just evaporated and I couldn't believe I saw that. I had two cups of coffee at the beginning of the night so I knew I was well aware of what was going on.”

North Carolina man hooks massive 112-pound catfish

It was hook, line and sinker — literally — for a man who went out fishing over Thanksgiving.

Equipped with only a small rod, Wilmington, North Carolina, resident Riahn Brewington struggled as he tried to pull out a fish from Cape Fear River last week.

He caught a catfish, but not just any catfish: a giant catfish that weighed more than 112 pounds.

The bloated fish was bigger than the top half of Brewington’s body.

Brewington couldn’t believe his eyes, and neither could his friends when the fisherman posted his prized catch on Facebook.


Hellish Monster in Amish Country

In August 1973, an ungodly looking creature created havoc among the god-fearing Lancaster County, PA Amish community. Witnesses described the creature as following: The size of a good heifer, gray in color with a white mane. It had tiger like fangs and curved horns like a Billy goat. It ran upright on long legs, and had long grizzly claws. In one incident, the creature sent a team of horses and two brothers flying when it approached their hay wagon. The following day, a man was cutting weeds on his farm about five miles from the previous incident when he heard a fierce roar and turned to see a monster with three horns and a tail charging in his direction. He raised his scythe to defend himself, only to have the implement ripped from his hands. At that point, the man wisely decided to turn both cheeks to the monster and escaped as fast as he could run.

A day later a woman was feeding poultry on a farm midway between the two earlier incidents when she heard a commotion and turned to see the creature in the act of snatching a goose in each of its hands. She bravely ran toward the thing, waving her apron. The woman managed to recover one of her geese when the creature threw it at her, knocking her to the ground in the process. The interloper then escaped with the remaining bird in hand. - America's Nightmare Monsters

Bizarre Eyewitness Encounters

Hooded Figure

A user calling himself Uhtred of Bebbanburg wrote of something strange he saw as a boy:

"I've had an encounter of my own. My friend and I saw a hooded figure on a "Dead End" fence at the end of my road in the suburbs right off the country. We stumbled upon it by accident just riding bikes at night. My friend was closest to it about 25 feet away and I was a little further but I noticed it before he did. At first we thought it was a person in a black hood so we yelled at it trying to get it to turn around but it kept looking out into the field so my friend and I just booked it outta there in fear. This encounter has left him and I curious for years and it would be cool if you could dig up some encounters similar to ours. When I look "hooded figure" up all I could find is grim reaper stuff but this thing we saw was short looking because the torso wasn't too big and we couldn't see feet hanging off the other side of the fence, the hood was pointed and it wasn't near Halloween so the whole thing was weird."

Toenail Fairy?

Marie Beardemphl wrote in to tell of something strange that happened to her daughter:

“The first story reminded me of my daughter when she was between 6 and 9. She had stubbed her toe and her toenail eventually fell off. She came to me and said she wanted to put the toenail into a glass so the toenail fairy would give her some money. With a small snicker, I told her there was no toenail fairy. She wouldn't believe me, so I told her to put it under her pillow and if she found money, of course, there was a toenail fairy. The next morning, she got up and the first thing she did was look under her pillow. Do you know what she found? The toenail was gone. but she also found a quarter. I have no idea where that quarter came from and asked her dad if he put it under there. He said he didn't put it there and I didn't put it there. There was no other "grown ups" other then her dad and I AND she was the oldest child. So her brothers were too young. She also didn't see an entity either. So tell me, who DID put the quarter under her pillow?"

Beam of Light

Annette in Dayton, Ohio called in to tell of her weird encounter:

“I was only 12 and a half and just before that we were moving from Salt Lake City and it was snowing. We had to stay in this nice hotel where my brother and I had a suite and my parents next to me. Well I woke to looking at a beam of light. I don't think it was an alien. I think it was a real angel. It was so bright, like the Sun, but you could look straight at it. It seemed to have a face but less distinctive. It had like an open robe with all this light was coming out of it. I kept thinking, I know I'm awake. I kept thinking why isn't my brother awake, looking at this. I look back and it was still there. And it was just there!”

New York Mothman

This occurred near NYC, very early on the morning of 12/30/2010. My dad was driving and my mom and I were asleep because it was so late. My dad pulled over and woke us up. He was royally flipping out. We didn't know what was wrong. He pointed to the overpass and all you could see were these intense glowing bright red eyes. At this point, we didn't know what it was so we just start driving again. When we reach the overpass the thing was still on it so my dad decided to stop. Then the thing swooped down and landed on the hood of our car. This thing landed with such a force it dented the hood! It then proceeded to stand up on the hood and it was 6-8 feet tall, black, and had wings!

We were all terrified at this point. My dad takes out the phone and calls the New York highway patrol and they laugh at him and hang up saying they didn't like prank calls. The thing was just sitting there. I took out my camera and photographed it (with the flash on). The thing then jumped off the car and took off, like it was afraid of the camera flash! When we got to my aunt's we told her and she said their were countless reports of this thing. Then I showed her the picture on my camera and she got REALLY freaked out. I have been doing research over the past couple of weeks and trying to find something that resembles it. At this point, I believe it was a Mothman.

The Spirit of Jim Morrison

I recently received the following account:

Lon, first off, thanks for such an informative, interesting, FUN site - your newsletter is always the FIRST email I read every morning! So keep up the good work, and please know how VERY MUCH APPRECIATED your site is, OK? (P.S. - I hope your HEALTH is OK!!! Keep us informed, OK? We CARE!) Anyway, I'm about to tell you about the ONLY true "paranormal experience" I've ever had in my life. Your site is the ONLY place I've ever felt comfortable relating this, and with God as my witness, it's COMPLETELY TRUE... It happened in the late 70's or early 80's (I can't remember, and am too lazy to look it up ) - shortly after Jerry Hopkins' book about the Doors ("No One Here Gets Out Alive") came out, at any rate. I'd ALWAYS been a fan of the Doors (esp. Jim Morrison, for obvious reasons ), so I bought the book ASAP and got immersed in it IMMEDIATELY. (GREAT book, BTW . . .) I was TOTALLY engrossed in it when this experience happened . . . I was happily married at the time, living in a 2-story, split-level house in Redondo Beach. And I was sleeping peacefully in bed with my hubby one night, when I was gently woken up by someone shaking my left shoulder. (I was laying on my right side, facing my husband at the time). So I roused myself up out of sleep and kinda looked around the dark room, trying to get my bearings and figure out what the heck was going on. My first thought was that my hubby had woken me up for some reason, which was unusual in ITSELF. Well, he was SOUND ASLEEP beside me, with his BACK to me. I kinda shook him anyway, to see what he wanted (cuz WHO ELSE coulda woken me up??), but I couldn't wake him - he was truly asleep, NO faking involved . . . And to this DAY I'm absolutely CERTAIN that I was visited (shaken by the shoulder - I can still FEEL it) by the spirit of Jim Morrison. I felt it very strongly that NIGHT (as I lay there in the dark, contemplating everything), and I've believed it ever since. He'd been HEAVILY on my mind for DAYS AND DAYS, and I feel that my thoughts must have DRAWN HIM to me that night in some way - the same way that thinking about a friend will compel them to CALL you (and vice versa), you know what I mean? Anyway, there it is - that's all I got! 😊 I'd be VERY interested to know if you or any of your readers have ever experienced anything similar. Thanks for listening, Lon -take good care of yourself! Luv, K

NOTE: OK..what do you think, folks? Lon


Small Beings with Glowing Rods

Gulf Breeze, Florida - January 12, 1988 - 5:30pm: Ed Walters was in his pickup truck on US 98 when an object appeared ahead of him shining a white beam of light through the windshield partially paralyzing his forearms and hands. He stopped the truck to the side of the road. He now felt numb and his arms were stinging. The object approached quickly and now hovered 3-feet above the roadway. The witness was able to grab his shotgun and exited the truck attempting to crawl under it. At this point the object brightened and it came closer. The witness was again hit on the back of his legs by a white beam of light. The object now began rotating and a blue beam of light appeared under it. The beam apparently deposited five small beings on the roadway, all wore some type of shield like coverings had large black oval shaped eyes and carried glowing rods. The beings now walked towards the witness, who then managed to crawl back into the truck and was somehow able to start it, he then drove quickly away from the area at high speed. - Witness


Gliding Alien Carrying a Brown Staff

Uniontown, Pennsylvania - August 3, 2000 - 10:00pm: Five witnesses observed what they described as an alien "glide" across a field. The witnesses described the being as about 5 feet tall with long slender extremities. It carried a brown "staff" about 5 feet long. It was observed for about a minute from a distance of about 250 feet. No apparent disturbances to the area around the being were reported. The creature appeared to glide about 6 inches above the ground, according to the witnesses. Weather conditions were cool and clear with no wind. No sounds were reported and witnesses commented on it seeming abnormally quiet at the time. Crickets and other normal background noises were absent. The witnesses lost sight of the being when they drove a short distance up the road to an area which they thought would offer a better view, only about 75 to 100 ft from where the being was seen. A small knoll obstructed their view as they drove. When they got to the closer location, the being was gone. The witnesses returned home after the encounter. They reported no serious effects from their sighting, although three of them did claim to be very tired the next day.- Stan Gordon, PASU, J Brown
