3rd Bi-Pedal Canine Sighting - Central Pennsylvania

I received the following report on Monday...I contacted the witness by telephone shortly thereafter:

I am sending this to you in light of hearing about some other recent PA sightings so I wanted to share my experience.

This first encounter happened to me about 4 weeks ago. I am a 42 year old woman of sober mind and I am not prone to embellishing. I have a 5 pound chihuahua and an 80 pound pitbull that I walk around town every evening. This encounter happened at around 8:00-8:30 pm, just after dusk. The streetlights were on. There is a town park in Portage that lies on the edge of some woods. I would guess that the park is around 25 acres or so. I walked the dogs through the park and then decided I wanted to go around the block on the back side of the park. There is a main road that runs along side of the front of the park and a dirt road that runs along the back side of the park. The roads meet at a streetlight. I was on the main road and got within about 25 yards of the streetlight and there was a huge figure, about 7 feet tall I estimate. It was standing just back from the light and I could see just the legs. They were hair covered and bent backwards like a dog. I could not make out a face or other details as it was standing back. Keep in mind I had my two dogs with me and the pitbull is extremely protective. The first thought I had was "oh shit, that is a big damn dog" and then it dawned on me what I was seeing. My next thought was "it is a freaking werewolf"!!! It was rocking side to side like it was waiting for us to get closer. That is when I yanked both leashes and ran towards home. If it were a dog (note that this thing was about 7 feet tall) it would have chased me and my dogs like a normal do would do. It just stood there pacing from one foot to the other side to side. It was standing on 2 feet, not on all fours. My dogs did not seem to sense anything and there was no reaction from them which I found very strange. Perhaps that thing was down wind and the dogs did not see it because this all happened so fast. I got home and told my fiancee what had happened and he did not make fun of me, he believed me. He encouraged me not to go that way again.

Well, guess what? I went that way the next night because I had convinced myself I was seeing things. This time I took the dirt road that circles the back side of the park just to prove myself wrong. It was not quite dusk so it was still pretty light out and the woods are on either side and there are no houses in this particular area. I got to within 150 feet of where I saw this thing and my chihuahua started growling and all of his hair was standing up. He started barking and going in circles looking for what ever it was that he sensed. No reaction at all from the pit. She is feisty and not afraid to fight intruders so that really surprised me. About the same time the little dog was freaking out there was a HUGE crash in the woods next to us, maybe 10 yards away of so. This area is very swampy and there are quite a few large bushes and trees. This crash sounded like a tree falling, but like it fell instantly. It was lound, fast and instant. I ran out of there so damn fast. I did not see anything this time other than my dog freaking out and the large crash. I did not think I could move that fast :-) I got home safe and vowed to NEVER take that trail again. Please keep in mind that this trail is very heavily used by cars and people daily. That is what strikes me as so odd to see/hear something like that there.

Well the next morning I put the dogs out to pee and they both freaked out and started growling, hair standing up and running up and down our fence sniffing and digging at it. They get excited when they smell something that should not be there, i.e. another dog or such, but this is now how they were behaving. The acted very agitated and almost scared. It truly makes me wonder if something followed us home that night.

Needless to say if I walk the park I stay away from the back side. The dogs get agitated when we are on the front side and they can smell in that general direction. They will growl and whine. I always carry a loaded handgun no matter where I go, but something tells me that it would not help if that thing wanted to "meet".

So that is my story, every word true. You can take it for what its worth. I would be VERY curious to know if you have had other reports of things in my area. Of all the years I have lived here and been on the back woods trails I have never felt fear or saw anything out of the ordinary. Now I am scared to walk in town. I would MUCH rather be in the woods and I have actually started walking those trails instead.

I would truly appreciate if you would let me know of other sightings in my area if you have had reports. I am about an hours drive from Penfield and I am aware of things going on there as well. Thank you for your time Lon and I appreciate your work. J

NOTE: In my conversation with the witness, they indicated the area has several abandoned coal mines...which would be great for sheltering a large beast. The witness learned of the previous sightings and our contact information after listening to Butch Witkowski's recent appearance on 'Darkness Radio.' Lon

Daily 2 Cents: UFOs Over U.S. Capitol Building! -- How Would Humanity React to an Alien Invasion? -- 8 Ft. Entity in Bedroom

UFOs Over U.S. Capitol Building!

Washington, DC - 8/28/2015: At the time I took the picture, I was on a foot tour around Washington DC detailing the events of the assassination of Abraham Lincoln. We came to the a street corner, I don't remember the exact street, and I saw a good photo opportunity with the Capitol Building, the moon, and a clock tower all in the background of the photo. I took 3 photos, and my parents took a few more as well. However, only one of those photos contained lights. At the time that I took the picture, I didn't even notice it, and just continued on with the tour.

On the car ride back from the tour, I was looking through my photos and noticed these 5 lights in a V-formation above the Capitol building. I had no idea what they were, I can't think of anything that would cause a light pattern like that besides maybe military planes? Because I didn't even notice them in the first place, I was only able to go off of the picture, and I have no information on the objects' motions or actions. - MUFON CMS


Eastern Mountain Lions May Be Extinct, but Locals Still See Them

Diana Marchibroda insists she saw the beast near the Appalachian Trail in Virginia in May. From the woods sauntered a “tall, very sleek” mountain lion, she says. Ms. Marchibroda, a dentist who is 62 years old, says she and her silver-haired miniature schnauzer, Sophie, “both watched in awe.”

“My sighting is ABSOLUTE,” she wrote the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service in July. “I know what I saw.”

Dozens of similar missives have poured into the agency as it proposes removing the Eastern mountain lion from the list of endangered species, where it has been since 1973. That change comes because the agency believes the creature no longer exists and would effectively render the subspecies extinct.

The roar of protest is from Easterners who contend the formidable felines still roam forests, fields and backyards from Maine to Georgia.

“There was no mistaking that long tail!” wrote one commenter to the agency in June, about an alleged sighting in New York. “Big as my bike,” promised another about a purported lion in Harrisburg, Pa.

The debate is “sort of in the realm of Bigfoot,” but with more scientific basis, says Noah Charney, an expert animal tracker in Western Massachusetts. The occasional mountain lion is spotted in the East, after wandering in from the West, but it is exceedingly uncommon and officials say people are reporting far more sightings than technically possible.

Also called cougars, pumas and panthers, mountain lions boast impressive tails, buff builds and often tawny-brown coats. They thrive in the West and have expanded eastward in recent decades, breeding in spots like South Dakota, with sightings increasing in the Midwest.

NOTE: I receive sighting reports constantly...up and down the east coast. What is the agenda of the Federal and State wildlife services by refusing it's existence? Lon


If we had credible warning of an imminent alien invasion, how would humanity - and psychologists - react?

Later this year, The Psychologist is hoping to publish an 'Out of this world' special issue. As part of that, we would like to include a truly participatory piece which uses our website to seek views from all corners of our wonderfully diverse discipline.

So the question is this: If we had credible warning of an imminent alien invasion, how would humanity - and psychologists - react? (Click the link for submission requirements & instructions)


8 Ft. Entity in Bedroom

Silverton, ID - 8-31-2015: I've reported about entities in my room before but this time they seem to have affected every thing electronic in my room when it came. It was about 8 foot tall and about 4-5 feet away. The time of the occurrence was around 1PM, my watch stopped at that time. It stood there for between 3-5 minutes before turning around and slowly vanishing. Once again, my dog did not react to it being in the room and the other dogs that I now live with didn't react either. I did not see anything that looked like a craft when I looked outside nor did I see what looked like a landing area. My cell phone hasn't been able to hold a charge all day and went from about a 90% charge (had been off the charger for 2 hours) to a "critical" charge (less than 10%) just over the time frame of the entity being in my room.

The entity was a dark green, almost black, with vertical pupils and yellow colored eyes. It had 3 ridges on it's head, one down the center and one on each side just over where the ears would be. Its mouth looked somewhat like a muzzle but was more blunt and wide. It wore a tan colored uniform with grey stripes down the sides of the pants and in insignia that looked like two triangles pointing at each other at the tops. - MUFON CMS

Live... Die... and Live Again - Part 11

By Stephen Ellis - How do the dead communicate with us? As detailed in previous parts, I do not know of any medium or psychic that can genuinely convey messages to or from the deceased. Those that I have seen use trickery, deception, electronics and cold-reading techniques. Despite what appears to be fraud surrounding communication with the dead, contact appears very possible. There are hundreds of thousands of recorded instances where people claim to have received messages from loved ones that have passed on.

To understand this, we must first clear our thinking from traditional thought and accept a fact that is not easy to accept: Most people believe that their mind or consciousness is a part of their brain…or possibly comes from some other part of their physical body. Thousands of brain scans, autopsies and experiments by science to show that the mind is a part of your brain have been performed. Intensive research by scientists using the most sophisticated techniques have resulted in one single conclusion: our mind cannot be located in any part of our brain or physical body! I will repeat that as it is extremely important: Our mind cannot be located in any part of our brain or physical body!

Of course, when we “think” we hear our own voice in our head talking to us…and since our brain is in our head, it is natural to assume that the mind is also there.

An important “key” to understanding how to communicate with the dead starts with finding the true source of that voice in our head that speaks to us…our mind. Common sense and logic deduce that If it is not coming from someplace within our body (as absolutely exhaustive research has shown), the source must be coming from outside of our body. Inasmuch as our physical bodies do not contain any hidden microphones or micro-chips, the only remaining conclusion is that the source of that voice in our head emanates from something our five senses of sight, sound, smell, touch and taste cannot detect. By definition: if none of our five senses can perceive something, it is not within our scope of life. Anything that exists but is not within our scope of life is defined as being in a different dimension. Proof of this is around us everywhere…but we don’t take the time to notice it.

Try a simple experiment: Walk into a room that you are familiar with…a room where you know every corner, every crack in the ceiling, picture on the wall, etc. Then close your eyes and keep them closed for at least one minute. Then, keeping your eyes closed, try to visualize the room in every detail. Open your eyes and you will see a number of things your mind’s vision missed. That’s because, without the aid of your optic nerves, your mind, emanating from a different dimension, sees the room from a different dimension’s perspective.

When you sleep, your brain sleeps. It rests and recharges itself. Physical or emotional problems may disturb the brain and wake it from sleep: i.e. you need to use the toilet; there is a crisis going on in your life; etc. It’s only when you genuinely sleep that the brain shuts down and the mind takes over…and you begin to dream. Dreams are created by your mind. You may see people you know in dreams…but somehow they look different. You may visit places you know but, again, they do not look exactly as you remember them. Then, too, you may see faces and people you do not recognize…but you see them in such intricate detail it would be difficult to imagine that they are not real. It would be impossible to prove, but there is a strong possibility that these “dream” faces may well be faces or places from your past lives.

If, in fact, the source of that voice in our head comes from another dimension, it follows that our dreams, too, are from that same dimension. When we awaken, we return to the dimension of life. That’s why details of dreams are so difficult to retain when we awaken. It’s also why communications from deceased loved ones can best enter our heads when we are asleep. The dead exist in a different dimension that our five senses cannot perceive. But when we sleep, and our brain is at rest, there is a melding of those communication lines and communication, however limited, becomes possible.

A young lady I knew told me that when she was about eighteen, she was home alone as her parents were vacationing in Europe. That night, she was awakened by her father (he’s supposed to be in Europe). He told her to go to her desk and write down what he told her. She did. He gave her the location of some secret bank accounts and hidden assets. She wrote them down, then her father was gone. She went back to bed and fell asleep uncertain as to whether what happened was real or part of a dream. The following morning she was awakened by a telephone call informing her that both her parents had been killed in an automobile accident in Germany one day earlier. She went to her desk and saw the notes she had made while half-asleep. The location of the bank accounts and other assets proved to be accurate.

There was no way to verify what she told me, but I had known the girl quite well for a number of years and in my opinion she was not the type of person to make-up a story like that.

Another (and apparently superior) way of communicating with the dead is via hypnosis. Being “regressed” to a time before you were born has not only been successful in a number of cases, there is now a growing field in psychiatry where the psychiatrist seeks out the roots of emotional problems using hypnotic regression. We will detail irrefutable evidence about contacting the dead through hypnosis in a future part of this series.

If you are interested in the subject, I suggest you read my book, “Explaining the Unexplained”. You can download a Kindle of it for about $5.00. Hard and soft-cover copies are available at Barnes & Nobel and at Amazon. - stebrel@aol.com
