Now...I have one question. Why do so many people think that I make a lot of money from my blog? Damn...it's really frustrating reading some of the emails. Maybe I should just start to charge a subscription fee for the newsletter and deep-six everything else? For the most part, I don't charge for the advertising since I like to help friends and colleagues. I only receive commissions for sales through the links...which isn't much. I only ask people to donate out of their spirit of giving back for my efforts...though I do understand that some people think I'm 'beating a dead horse' by making the suggestion. To those readers and others who have shown their appreciation over the years, I truly wish to thank you. Sorry...but I needed to say it. Lon

Just the Facts?: Bigfoot Roaming the Cotswolds? -- Reader's Ghostly Experiences -- The Gable Film 'Dogman' Hoax
Is a Bigfoot roaming the Cotswolds?
A spooky set of huge footprints found at Mill Dene Garden in Blockley have baffled people in the Cotswolds, UK.
Melanie Aston, who teaches swimming at Mill Dene and often takes her dog for a walk in Bourton Wood on Saturday mornings, found some large unshod footprints near the toilets by the car park earlier this month.
Her size seven wellies were dwarfed by the huge prints, which she said seemed fresh.
However, she could not see anyone else around.
“They went over some really rough ground but there was quite a distance between each print almost as if they where avoiding the really wet mud,” she said.
“They went right down to where the path goes over the brook then divides into three directions, which is where I lost track. It’s really quite spooky and I’m not such a frequent visitor since.”
Mill Dene owner Wendy Dare said: “I honestly have no idea what it is. The footprints are very large.” - tewkesburyadmag

Not the first ghillie suit hoax
From Linda Godfrey - The recent tragic death of a Montana man killed on a highway as he tried to imitate a Bigfoot reminded me of another hoax effort: the so-called Gable films of Michigan, part one and part two. The costume of choice in both states was a ghillie suit, a stringy, head-to-toe covering hunters often wear for camouflage in the woods.
The Gable films were made by amateur video buff Mike Agrusa as a sort of homage to the cryptid known as the Michigan Dogman. Agrusa added wire coat hanger “ears” as you can see in his intentionally grainy still at left, and was at least smart enough not to step onto a busy highway as he was filmed.

Reader's Ghostly Experiences
I received the following email from a reader in Australia"
I thought I might relate a few experiences I have had over the years.
In 1989 I spent 9 months living at Mum's place to get back on my feet after a nasty split with my fiancée. I was in my room lying on my bed listening to the stereo when I turned my head to the right to find this ghostly face right beside my face!
It stood up and floated backward out the door into the hallway and disappeared!
I jumped off the bed and run into the kitchen where mum was preparing dinner. Are you allright? she asked. I have just seen something I said. She said I had a strange look on my face. It scared the hell out of me.
We were all sitting out in the back yard a week later when it was brought up again. My youngest brother who was 14 at the time was listening to us.
He got all excited and told us his story.
He was brushing his teeth one morning at the bathroom sink when he looked to his left into the hallway and seen an apparition. He described what he saw and it was exactly what I saw !
It was only ever seen once by my brother and myself. Looking back now it resembled my Grandmother who died in 1985. She was smiling at us just before she disappeared.
In 1992 my father died from cancer. He lived on his own as he and mum divorced when I was 9.
We went to visit him on his birthday to find him dead. He had been dead for about a week the Coroner found. I was heartbroken. I went to bed that night and woke about 2 am to find him standing at the foot of my bed! I was living alone at the time. He was standing looking very solemn at me. It scared me a lot.
A friend of mine says I may be a bit sensitive seeing these things. I don’t tell others about it because they look at me strange. I know what I have seen and believe in these things.
My Lady friend I am currently seeing has seen things at my home too. We have gone to bed for her to be awaken by something rubbing her arms and legs. I have been snoring beside her. This has happened a few times. She awoke one night to see a figure standing in the doorway. She described it to me and I showed her a photo of my dad. It was him! She has heard footsteps walking by the bathroom at night when she has been in there. I have been in bed asleep. Her jewellery goes missing quite often only to turn up a few days later. We hear noises from rapping on walls to someone knocking at the front door.
We are used to it now. It does not scare us. We keep quiet about it though because others look at you strange. As I said beore I believe in these things.
I wish to remain anonymous if you print this.
Thank you Lon.

Firemen rescue cow stuck in tree
The 660-pound calf, called Sparkle, was discovered in a state of distress after falling down the ravine on a farm Sheriff Park, near Penrith, Cumbria.
Fire-fighters were surprised to receive the call to rescue the 11-month-old bovine after its owner, Philip Armstrong, had noticed it missing from his farm.
The bruised animal had plunged more than 100 feet down a "rather steep" embankment of the river Leith before a tree broke its fall on Tuesday afternoon. It was only stopped from falling further by the sapling.
During the delicate four-hour rescue operation, the Pedigree dairy shorthorn heifer was sedated by vets before being winched to safety by fire crews in body armour who used specialist equipment and slings.
Mr Armstrong said that the animal had been left "sore and bruised" by the ordeal, but was otherwise unharmed.
"It was a happy ending to a very stressful afternoon," said his mother, Sandra.
It was unharmed after the ordeal and is now recovering at the farm. Three fire crews attended the incident.
"They had to wear body armour in case a stray hoof lashed out at them," said a spokesman for Cumbria Fire and Rescue Service.
"It was extremely tired and exhausted. It was very, very still and in quite a deep state of shock.
"The vet checked the cow over and it seemed reasonably happy and relatively unscathed." - telegraph

I received this correspondence on 8/28/2012...and received a followup last night 8/29/2012. I'm posting the unedited email:
Sir - my brother referred your email addy to me. He thought you may have an answer to what I saw this past July while camping in the Sierra Nevada Mts. near Tioga Lake, CA. My teenage son and I were camping in our RV. There were other campers in the area but not very close to us. On the 3rd night of our trip, we encountered something that neither of us can explain.
This is bear country and I know that there have been Bigfoot reports over the years. But what we saw was neither as far as we can tell. We secured all of the food and other supplies in the RV and were getting ready to go to bed. It was about 12:30 am. My son fell asleep quickly while I was getting a few things ready as we were going to leave this location later in the morning. I was looking at a map when I started to hear high pitched screams. At first I thought it was a coyote but it was a single scream and sounded more human - like a woman's scream. I opened the RV door and stood silent in the doorway. Once again the high pitched scream started. This time, it woke my son. We both stood at the door as the screams continued from the direction of the mountain. After about 10 mins the screams stopped - we both went to bed.
Something startled me while I was sleeping because I woke in a panic. I looked at my watch - it was 2:40 am. Then all of a sudden that same high pitched scream erupted outside of the RV. As it started my son jumped out of his rack and fell to the floor. I grabbed my .44 just in case. As we looked out through the windshield the moonlight was bright enough to illuminate a tall thin creature with light colored skin. My son yelled 'zombie!' - it did look like a female human form but the face and the rest of the body looked horrible. It reminded me of an old witch - no clothes, deformed face, long light colored hair, long arms and legs. I figured it stood almost 7 ft. It was walking away from the RV toward the lake. I had seen enough. I made sure everything was ready to go and drove out of there ASAP.
We ended up near Mono Lake. A few days later I was able to talk to a ranger as he walked through the camping area. He was an older guy and quite engaging. I described what we witnessed - my son also verified what we had seen. The ranger got a serious look on his face and said that over the years, something similar had been reported a few times. He said that they called it 'Penelope' but he didn't know why it had gotten that name. That's all he knew.
When I got home I searched the internet but no information was available. My brother gave me your email addy and said you may have an idea of what it was. I'd appreciate your help - you can also call me at XXX-XXXXXXX. LR
I contacted LR by email...then talked to him last evening (8/29). I received this email later:
NOTE: I looked for 'Penelope' online with one small reference but little detail. I contacted Inyo National Forest information...they directed me to the Mono Lake ranger station. I was able to talk to a ranger who confirmed that there were a few very odd sightings in the Sierra Nevada range and that one of these 'beings' was dubbed 'Penelope' but he was unaware of how or why the name was given. I sent out a few inquiries last evening. Today I received a short email from a folklore writer in Reno, NV that 'Penelope' was supposedly a woman who became lost in the Sierra Nevada Mts. several years ago and eventually became a flesh-eating monster. OK. Seems like we're getting into the 'urban-legend' column on this one. Well, anyway, I'd appreciate some followup if available...Lon
UPDATE: As dumb luck has it, I had a reference to 'Penelope' in a book I recently received from Eric Altman titled Monster Spotter's Guide to North America The brief description is similar to the information that I received from the folklore writer with a few more gruesome details. It seems 'Penelope' disembowels her victims before feasting on the remains. As well, she is supposedly responsible for a few unexplained deaths in the Sierra Nevadas. Other than that, I have no idea what LR and his son witnessed...Lon

Just the Facts?: The London Trackway -- Essex Lion Farce -- You're Invited! Fall UFO Conference in Philadelphia
The London Trackway: First Publication
The London Trackway: First Publication
From Cliff Barackman: The London Trackway is a unique event in bigfooting history. It started with an unsuspecting sasquatch wandering out of the woods and onto the muddy shore of Cottage Grove Reservoir (near Eugene, OR) probably on the Saturday night/Sunday morning of Februray 11/12, 2012. The event still has not come to an end because of the observations that are continually being made of the casts that were collected at the site. Just as new insights are still being gleaned by examining sasquatch footprint casts taken decades ago, the London Tracks will be slowly giving their secrets away for years to come.

The Essex lion farce
Okay, so the rumours circulated that there was a lion on the loose near Clacton in Essex. How many more stories like this are going to be followed up by droves of police officers and reported on my drama hungry papers ? It's a sorry state of affairs, and it's hysteria that makes a mockery of my research because when investigators, as usual, find no evidence of the lion king, everyone starts laughing and saying that there are no large cats roaming Britain. So let's look at the details.
Someone claimed they'd seen a lion in a field a few days ago. The story spread like wildfire, newspapers got involved, my phone started to ring, the police turned up at the location, photographs of the 'beast' began being passed around and so was born the 'Lion of Essex' legend...another unfounded scare akin to the Shooter's Hill cheetah, The Edgware Tiger, the Winchmore Hill lioness, the Sydenham leopard blah blah blah. Yep, the police had every right to investigate it as it was a matter of public safety but surely such a fuss wasn't necessary. A couple of animal trackers would have sufficed because if anyone knows anything about cats, lions do not behave in an incredibly elusive manner, lions would seek large prey and also seek a pride, and lions DO NOT inhabit the wilds of Britain, neither do tigers, jaguars or cheetahs.
There are three suggestions for the Essex lion story - 1) maybe, just maybe there had been a lion that had escaped from a zoo/private collection - or if you read some of the papers, a circus which had stopped by a few weeks previous. 2) there was no lion at all, just a bunch of witnesses who didn't have a clue what they were seeing or maybe had nothing better to do than make it up, 3) judging by a couple of reports in which witnesses described seeing a tan-coloured cat with a white chest, a puma may have been involved. Whatever the truth, if there was a lion roaming Essex - it would no doubt be used to being hand-reared, lacking excerise and keen to feast on those mutant's with their swept over fringes, white teeth and small percentage of brain cells. If a lion had been roaming Essex then the police would not have called off the search. If a lion had bene roaming Essex it would have been heard roaring on numerous occasions, would have been on the prowl for livestock, and would have left behind a few very large prints. Lions are not elusive hunters that climb trees. Lions are bloody big animals. Continue reading at kentonline

South Texas mayor attacked and killed by donkey
A South Texas mayor has been found dead after apparently being attacked by a 500-pound donkey on his ranch.
The Atascosa County Sheriff's Office said Wednesday that the death of Hollywood Park Mayor William "Bill" Bohlke appears to be an accident. Bohlke was 65.
Chief Deputy David Soward says Bohlke apparently was attacked Monday morning by an aggressive male donkey he kept on the ranch. His body was found Monday night during a search by deputies and relatives. A formal cause of death is pending.
"It is with great regret that we, the family of Bill Bohlke, wish to inform you of his passing last night, August 27th, 2012," said Bohlke's family in a statement. "Bill suffered a fatal injury while taking care of his prized cow herd near Pleasanton last evening."
A vigil for the mayor is planned on Monday, Sept. 3 at 7:00 p.m. CT at St. Mark the Evangelist Catholic Church, and a mass will be held at 9:30 a.m. CT at the same church the following morning.
"Bill, your mayor, dearly loved serving you, our community, and we only wish he was here to continue doing so," the family's statement said.
Soward says it's up to the family to decide what to do with the donkey.

Exploding meteor causes sonic boom before blowing up over North Wales
After travelling millions of miles through the galaxy, a blazing meteor finally went out with a bang above a Welsh town.
The force of the explosion at 11pm last night rattled windows, set off car alarms and woke up children.
One resident described it as “like a bomb going off”.
Amateur astronomers had watched its progress as it sped over North West England and North Wales before it blew up over Cwmbran in South Wales.
Homeowner Steve Edwards, 56, said: “There was an enormous boom – It sounded like a bomb going off.
“The force of it shook the windows in my house, woke up my children and caused car alarms to start going off in the streets.
"I’m just glad none of it landed on my roof.”
Another witness, Nathan Jones, 34, said: “I’ve never seen something so amazing in my life.
“It had a heat trail behind, it was orange and white and very bright, and also seemed very close.
"It looked like it was skimming through the atmosphere due to the curved path it was taking.”
Police and coastguards had dozens of reports of a bright flash in the sky followed by the loud bang.
Hannah Sabido, 33, who spotted the meteor from her home in Bristol, said: “It looked like a bright white ball with a long bright tail and possibly a green hue.
"It was brighter than the moon.”
Space expert Dr David Whitehouse explained that the rock was only the size of a golf ball and would have burned up as it entered the Earth’s atmosphere, leaving an incredibly bright tail.
Much larger objects which could cause a catastrophe only hit our planet once in tens of millions of years.
He said: “Scientists will now be very keen to know if it’s survived so they can try and collect it and examine it.
“As for the rest of us, we don’t have anything to fear from a meteor of this size. There’s no records of anyone having been killed by such a thing.
“Very rarely something large will come into contact with the Earth, like the one which helped the dinosaurs on their way – that was the size of Britain.
“But this meteor is a wonder of nature, something in the night sky to be admired and enjoyed.” - Mirror

Many cases from 2010 and 2011 are summarized in the issues of THE JOURNAL OF HUMANOID STUDIES and will not be duplicated here. After a busy 2011...2012 has proved to be a most interesting year so far with numerous assorted encounters and cases. Are we building up for something? Is this our last year to learn our real place in the cosmos? I suspect it will be my last year for collecting cases and I will start work in other projects. (All the available issues of the Journal of Humanoid Studies can be downloaded for free from the UFOINFO site).

2012 Humanoid Encounters and Other High Strangeness Events
So far a very interesting year with many encounters far and wide. This will be my last year of collecting humanoid case summaries. Something or someone is trying to tell us that we are not the kings of the Universe - that we are not at the top of the food chain. There are OTHERS amongst us. Perhaps they have been with us forever.

The witness, Ruben, was out walking his dog in this wooded area and at one point decided to let him loose so he could run freely. Strangely the dog remained sitting on the grass as if ‘waiting for something to happen’. Somewhat perplexed Ruben looked up and saw something moving within the nearby brush. He described a dark gray colored humanoid that was floating just above the ground and moving in a horizontal position. The humanoid’s body was very thin and ‘long’. It was very tall and was now blocking the path in which Ruben had been walking his dog. Ruben could not remember seeing any facial features on the humanoid even though it remained facing in his direction. The humanoid crossed the path to the other side into an agricultural field next to the path. The witness also noticed what appeared to be the lights of a car at the far end of the path which suddenly began rising into the air and dimming its brightness. At this time the witness suddenly felt strong fear and returned to his home somewhat confused. Once he arrived at the house his dog became nervous and began scratching the door wanting to be let in.

A chemical worker, Leonardo, who lives in Codroipo, was returning from Palmanova to Codroipo late at night when he arrived at the new roundabout at Mortegliano. There were several cars parked there. The young man exited his vehicle and saw a strange creature walking along the road. The creature was very tall, perhaps close to four meters in height (11 feet). The witness grabbed a flashlight and shone it on the creature he saw the back of the creature and noticed on the back of its legs what resembled ‘a tangle of tendons’. His head had a rounded shape and cone-shaped on top. He tried to use his cell phone to call and take pictures but it was useless. The creature walked down the street oblivious of the cars. The witness saw a car with a family in which the mother was trying to conceal her two children from the creature. The creature eventually disappeared into the darkness.

Scott Martin and his family were traveling home by taxi on Tuesday, when they saw a terrifying figure they have likened to the legendary Spring Heeled Jack dart across the road before leaping 15ft over a bank as they approached Nescot College on the Ewell bypass. Also, a couple, an accountant and a manager of a building company from Banstead, their four year old son reported seeing the same figure. So spooked were the family that their son was too scared to sleep on his own that night while the taxi driver admitted he didn’t want to drive back alone.

In the southern part of Fayette County, a man was walking his dog in a rural location. He was in the front yard and away from any lights when his attention was drawn to look upwards after hearing a whooshing sound coming from overhead. Flying above him at a distance of about 55 feet was a large flying creature that “looked like a dragon”. As the flying creature passed over an automatic dusk to dawn light, the witness was able to get a good look at the strange flying animal. The body was about 22 feet long with a wingspan of about 18 feet wide, and looked to be shiny with almost a reflective body with no scales. The color was dark, possibly brown and red, similar to auburn brown. At the end tip of the wings there appeared to be talon-like fingers about 3 to 4 in number. The arms of the wing structure appeared muscular. The wings were quite thick, not like skin. There appeared to be a rear fin on both sides of its body, and the creature displayed an arrowhead shaped tail. The witness also saw what appeared to be two extended rear legs. The creature had a cone shape around the head and it stopped flat on the base of the neck. The oddest physical feature that the witness mentioned was that the mouth and eyes were illuminated with “a very ominous orange glow”. As the creature flew over a tree at the bottom of the yard and moved off in the distance, the fellow heard a deep-throaty sound, similar to the fog horn on a boat. The entire observation lasted about 20 seconds.

Two families traveling in separate cars were traveling on the C-524 road began to see a strange luminosity in the distance that they could not identify. Suddenly from the second car the occupants see that the first car abruptly brakes and stops on the middle of the road in order to avoid a strange humanoid figure at least 2-2.5 meters in height that floated just above the ground on the side of the road, strangely they could not see any feet on the figure. The man-like figure has blondish hair and wore a tight fitting sky-blue diving suit which was slightly luminous and with an inscription similar to a ‘rhombus’ in the chest area. One of the occupants of the second vehicle stared squarely into the humanoid’s face who stared intently back at her. To her horror she realized that the figure seemed to lack facial features and seemed transparent but ‘deep’ at the same time. Both vehicles drove quickly away from the area. All the witnesses suffered from nervousness for the next several days and were not able to sleep well.

A man heard an odd animal sound coming from outside. The sound was a level growl or screeching sound that he listened to for about five minutes. The sound seemed as though it was just outside the window. The witness, intrigued by the odd noise, awakened his wife to see if she could recognize what type of animal it might originate from. When his wife got up and they both heard the sound, she looked out the window across the road to a creek about 15-20 feet away. She then noticed what she thought was a deer standing up in the middle of the creek. Her husband questioned why there would be a deer standing in the creek, and why it would be making such a strange noise. He then looked out the window and saw an undetermined creature dark brown in color and about the size of a deer. It could have actually larger than a deer if it was peering over the retaining wall. The man said when it turned its head, it appeared to have an elongated face, almost deer shaped, but not as stubby in the snout. It appeared to be more pointed in shape.
What could be easily seen were two big round amber colored eyes that seemed to be glowing. The man estimated that they looked to be the size of a golf ball. He didn’t think that they were reflecting as a result of some street lights some distance away. The witness commented that the freaky part was it was staring right at their house towards them. The couple noticed that whatever it was, the glowing eyes were staring directly in their direction. The man told his wife that he was going to check out what it was. Just then something very strange occurred. Suddenly the creature took one step, and took off into the sky at a 45 degree angle and was gone. The witness stated, “the speed was insane, I never saws anything move that fast.” He also stated that he never saw a bird that big and that he saw no signs of wings flapping.

Two men had just finished eating dinner and playing a round of golf and were driving on a two lane road that lead back to the east side of the city. As they turned right at a corner that leads back into the main road, they drove another 100 feet until on the right side of the road they saw an 8-9 foot tall figure that was walking back into the edge of the forest located under a street. The driver immediately hit the brakes, unsure of what he saw, the passenger looked shock and the driver yelled, “I think that was an alien!” The car came to a stop and the passenger (his cousin) yelled, “Go, Go, Go!” They sped away from the area and drove to their nearby apartment. They picked up some friends and returned to the scene of the incident but did not see the figure again.
The figure stood 8-9 feet tall, had a tall rounded crown shape head, the head was as big as a human abdomen, and it was somewhat muscular looking, it had big eyes but not the stereotypical alien-like, long legs and did not seemed startled whatsoever.

Three neighbors were outside their home discussing a ‘previous encounter with an orb’, it was clear out and as they explained what they had seen one of them saw a light on the railroad tracks about 75 feet away. As he looked closer they noticed that it was human-like and about 7-9 feet tall with an inner light emanating from the chest area. It had also long white hair. He yelled at his friends and pointed at the being which turned abruptly and seemed to vanish, speeding across the tracks. After this incident the main witness has a constant feeling of something watching him. Another neighbor reported seeing the same thing.

Six witnesses were leaving a restaurant and traveling in two cars, they headed to drop off some of their party. They were driving west on Highway 7 and as they approached the stoplight at 2nd street all of them (four in one car and two in the front car) saw a craft of some type in the sky just below the clouds. It had four rectangular windows on it. The car in front saw it first and got a better view of the object. The two people in the front car said they saw thin, humanoid type beings standing in two of the windows, which emitted a yellowish glow from inside the craft. No one in the second car saw the beings, but they did clearly see the windows and saw the craft back up, move down a bit and the move up into the clouds. There were no lights on the outside of the craft and it was so dark that it was difficult to see the shape of it, so all they could clearly see were the four horizontal windows with a light inside of them. The two witnesses in the first vehicle were so shaken that they refused to talk about it anymore.

The witness had gone out scouting for a place to build a deer stand for the upcoming season. He had gone out the day before and cleared out a spot in which to build the stand. He got down to the spot early that morning with the rest of the supplies he needed to complete the stand. He remembers glancing at his watch when his cell phone rang. It was a friend that was to suppose to be helping him telling him that he could not make it down there that morning, he chatted with him for several minutes before hanging up. He climbed down the ladder to get more nails from his truck and happened to look across the field and he saw a dark object in the distance. He thought it was a few miles from his location and thought nothing of it, got the nails from the bed of his truck and climbed back up the ladder to finish bracing. Once he finished the seat portion of the stand, he climbed up on it to check the comfort and make sure it was braced properly and would be safe to hunt from.
As soon as he sat down the wind picked up a little and he looked around to check out his line of sight and was shocked by what he saw. When he looked to his left, out in a cornfield, he saw a huge black object hovering low, just above the corn and the disappear behind the woods just south of the field. He climbed down from the stand and decided to go in the direction where the object had vanished. At first he thought he had imagined the whole thing because it made absolutely no sound and yet it was less than 100 yards from him. Once he managed to cross the creek and make his way to the edge of the field he could see the object which was now on the ground. A feeling of curiosity came over him. He was afraid of what he was watching but somehow was drawn to it. He couldn’t explain the overwhelming feeling that he had to get closer to it. It felt like something was pulling him towards the object. After standing there, he walked about 30 yards just along the wood-line and approximately 60ft from it. He thinks he was behind the object. Suddenly, he looked over toward the cornfield and saw two ‘people’ walking toward the object. He thought that they ‘were kids’ and started waving his arms back and forth and suddenly realizes that he cannot yell or say a word. At this point he was extremely frightened. When the supposed kids got closer he now could see that they were not kids at all but midget-like people and their skin was yellowish and they had very large eyes. In the end he doesn’t even remember getting back to his truck and leaving but he has not been back down there again. He has also experienced very ‘vivid’ dreams after the encounter.

The witness awoke and a shadow caught her attention, at first she thought it was her eyes. Her dog never barked or alerted her. She is not even sure why she woke up. When she blinked several times and rubbed her eyes she realized that she was seeing something. His windows are low so the figure could not have been more than 4ft tall. It was a shadow of a head, larger than a human head and a little skinny neck and shoulders that she could see. It moved so slowly that the witness ‘got the chills’. In the other window there was a tall super skinny shadow that slightly made a ‘Y’ at the top. As soon as the shadowy figure moved away from the window she hit her husband hard and told him that there was somebody outside. He turned on all the lights and grabbed his gun and ten minutes later they checked outside and found nothing.

Sometime in the middle of the night he woke up and was just lying on his right side staring at the wall and there was a quick flash of dime, greenish white light that came up from the floor, which was hidden from his view. He then got a glimpse of the top edge of what looked like an amoeba-like, semi-transparent creature. He quickly lowered his head and the creature was hidden from his view but here were furious energy weaves coming up in that corner of the room. The waves looked a lot like the ones you see over the highway, when driving in the desert on a hot day. He decided to take a good look so he popped up onto his right elbow, very quickly, and got a good face to face look at the entire being---for just a second---and then it disappeared and there was a slight rusting of two or three of the vertical blinds that cover the sliding doors which open onto the patio. He got a good look at the blinds swing a few times right after they made a tiny clattering noise. It all happened in probably two seconds.
The witness additional described the appearance of the creature as flat, like a fried egg without the yolk in the center. Rectangular, but with a wavy border---again like a fried egg sometimes looks. The border was thicker, like on a pizza. The size was approximately 12” wide and 18” tall. It had visible objects scattered randomly inside it, sort of reminiscent of vacuoles in a cell. The objects ranged from ¾ “to 1” and were whitish to dark green---but diffuse, since the creature was translucent, not fully transparent. The inside area of the being was dimly lit almost like the light a night-light puts out. His opinion is that everything of the creature that was visible was seen by light emanating from the being itself---this theory is based on the fact that as soon as the creature disappeared that corner of the room was nearly pitch black.

The witness was out in the woods collecting firewood when he saw what he described as an ‘S’ shaped object or thing floating about 6 feet in the air. It had no lights but he could see what appeared to be ‘weird looking words’ along the side almost like ‘old Cree writing’. The witness thought that it was not a drone and could see what appeared to be orbs of ‘energy’ gathering something from the ground one of them flew towards the witness and was emitting a strange humming sound it suddenly flashed a deep purple light at the witness and that’s the last thing he remembers of the encounter. He found himself lying on the ground as if nothing had happened. He later recalled hearing a strange language around the object and estimated that had seen the object for about 25 minutes.

A husband and wife had gone out to sit on the deck for some fresh air after a very hot and humid day. They sat looking at the woods for almost an hour it was the first night that the fireflies had come out. As they sat they both began to notice that all the sounds of the woods had ceased. All the crickets stopped, and all the peepers became silent in the pond behind their house. It was at this time that the husband noticed something in the yard. At first he thought it might be a skunk because all he could make out was a little bit of white. As he stood up from his chair to investigate, the patch of white that he had seen began to back up and emit a very dim glow. At first he was a bit taken back and told his wife to stand up and take a look. By the time she stood up the glow of the ‘life form’ had become dimmer and backed off to the other side of the fence where it stopped and seemed to focus on the witnesses.
The wife stepped towards the glow now about 5 yards in front of them and then the glow became brighter. They felt that this thing was observing them but they did not feel threatened. For twenty minutes or so this went on and that is when they decided to get a little closer. No sooner had they thought of getting closer a second glow appeared out of nowhere five feet to the left of the first glow. The second glow was a lot brighter and was clearly moving side to side. At this point both became frightened and walked back up on to the deck not taking their eyes off the two glowing forms for a second. Once back on the deck the second glow began moving towards them at a fast pace about ten to fifteen yards in front of them. Once it cleared the fence and was clearly in their yard the couple retreated into the house. They were too scared to go outside again and decided to call it a night.

The same couple of the events of the previous night decided that they would go to the backyard to see if what they saw the night before would return. The night was very reminiscent of the first night. There were no sounds to be heard. They lay out on the deck observing the sky for an hour when the wife noticed something up in the air. Best described as an extremely white bright light shooting across the sky, the main shape of the object was oblong. It was brighter than anything they had ever seen and moving very fast. The most bizarre characteristic of this bright oblong shaped light was what appeared to be appendages or tentacle-like things coming out from each side of it.
They moved from side to side extending and retracting as it made its way across the sky west to east out towards the ocean. They both found this to very strange and proceeded to do some research on an I-pad they had brought out. It was at this time when the husband focused his attention back towards the woods where they had seen the glow the night before. After looking for only a couple of seconds the ‘glow’ appeared again slowly on the opposite side of the fence. He alerted his wife to the arrival of the glow but this time it was not as bright as the night before.

A family of three was at the husband’s uncle’s house in order to patch up some holes on the eves where bats had a nest. It was dusk and they were waiting for all the bats to fly out before patching up the holes. Suddenly the husband saw an object in the sky and pointed at it. It was moving very slowly coming towards them and it was black. It was about 3 telephone poles higher than the tree line. The location they were was very wooded and surrounded by farms and fields. The object made no noise and moved slower than a bird. They thought it must be a huge bird, but as it got closer it seemed to just slowly float across the sky. It was bigger than a human. It resembled some type of man-like creature hunched over. The stunned family watched as it flew directly in front of them. It was so dark that they couldn’t make any details on it, nothing on it was moving, it wasn’t a bird, plane, balloon or anything they had ever seen. It continued to go past us and never went higher or lower until it disappeared behind the tall trees and out of sight.

A woman reported seeing a tall figure in black that suddenly was ‘absorbed’ into a ship. The witness reported that the figure seemed to have appeared out of nowhere and was convinced that it was an extraterrestrial. The main witness accompanied by her husband and their dog were walking near the grounds of the local Comodoro Pierrestegui Airport when they suddenly turned around and saw a very tall human-like individual at least 2 meters in height that was carrying what appeared to be a briefcase in each hand. The figure appeared to have appeared suddenly and the witnesses did not see any cars around. They described the figure as human-like, more than 2 meters in height, with a thin face, long arms and legs and gold-colored hair. The strange being seemed to completely ignore them and moved in strange ‘robot-like steps’. A few meters away the stunned couple saw the figure stop and place the two ‘briefcases’ into a semi-visible ship or object and then vanish in plain sight.

The witness (involved in other encounters) heard a noise from his renter’s room---a thud-like sound; he walked down the hallway toward his room and called out his name. A bright yellow light was shining from under the door. He called out his name again, nothing. So he went back into his room turned and looked down the hall. It was dark in his room again. He just thought to himself that he would ask him in the morning why he didn’t answer. He went back to bed and woke up again around 3 am to a being at his window---dark black. Initially he thought it was a burglar trying to break into the house. He screamed for him to go away and it then changed shapes to look like a spider attached to the window. The witness screamed again and it swooped away, making no sound. He got up and looked out his window---there were four black shapes, all different, from short and stocky to tall and thin, standing on the other side of his fence. His yard and the neighbor’s were bathed in a light blue light, like back lighting. He could see the shapes very clearly. He then ran to the front of the house and saw two creatures crouching behind his neighbor’s car and two behind his renter’s van in the driveway. He then woke up his renter to tell him what had happened. His renter informed him that he felt that he had been abducted since he was a child, and showed the witness a bump on his leg that he always felt was some sort of implant to track him.
He left the next morning to go camping and call upon ‘good fairies and energy’ to take this darkness away from the witness and his home. The renter is now missing. He left on the morning of June 26th and has not been seen since. The Search and Rescue team did find his van at a local trailhead but no one has found him yet.

The witness (involved in other encounters) woke up around 3 am and saw a gray figure at his window. It had a large bald head and large almond-shaped eyes. The witness told the figure to go away since he had not invited ‘him’ to be there. The witness called for the ‘Warrior Angels” to protect him and his home and then his entire bedroom window lit up with what he would describe as an energy field---lines and bright lights---like a television that was putting out a scrambled signal. He screamed for the figure to leave again but he remained. He then threw a pillow and the figure went away. His backyard and patio were lit up and then became dark again.

The witness was home in the kitchen eating at the table in the dark and staring out the open window toward Denver. The morning was absolutely clear and quiet. He then saw what appeared to be a white light on the wing of a jet and then suddenly grew to 500 times the size and he immediately thought that a jet had blown up. He reported the event to an on-line newspaper but there was nothing in the new the next morning. Then he saw and recalled what he felt and saw at the time. He now knows he saw an intelligence of some kind, with thought transference ability, white, pure, glowing, gentle, smiling. It was small at first and he could just about see it. It turned sharply to him and grew very large, and stared at him, it read his mind, and he felt drained and then felt ok.

Two men were looking at a swamp at Spring Creek and were standing on shore just looking around. They had seen alligators and a lot of beautiful dragonflies. Suddenly, across the swamp, directly in front of them they both watched the largest ‘bird’ they had ever seen take flight from a tree and head directly for them. It was gray with no feathers. It had a wingspan of just over ¾ the length of a pickup truck and looked like a flying leather “V”. It made a sharp right and landed in a tree. Its weight shook the entire top of the tree and from there they lost sight of it. It had a white head, gray wings, and no noticeable feet. The wingspan has to have been between ten and fifteen feet and had no feathers, only what appeared to be hide like that of a bat.

The witness was sleeping when he began to feeling burning in his lower left back. It was an intense feeling. Suddenly he was floating up the top of the ceiling and he could see his body in the living room where he was sleeping and he could see four white colored human-like figures, very thin, that were doing something to his body while he floated and watched from the ceiling. There were two other white colored figures next to him. They told the witness that he had been ‘selected’ for something. He saw that they inserted what appeared to be a piece of wire in his lower back that went through the center of his back through the center of his back up to his shoulder and then it went back to the same way to the right of his lower back and then it went back up again to the left upper shoulder. They finally removed the piece of wire and he woke up around 5 am. He went to the bathroom to check where he had felt the burning sensation and saw a tiny hole apparently where they had inserted the wire.

Fabin Torti, a member of the Grupo Tecnico de Asistencia Psicologica OVNI (GRU.TAP Technical Group for Psychological UFO Assistance), provides a psychological and sociological focus for the multiple UFO events reported in the “Western Corridor” or greater Buenos Aires. Torti pointed out “Many strange situations are being recorded, within the Province of Buenos Aires.” An abductee, “Provides details that cannot be invented” says Torti, she noticed that the intelligences taking her did not stand on the floor but were suspended over the surface, and that she saw a human being with wires connected between his head and a monitor that displayed his thoughts.
A five year old girl says, “Small, big-eyed kids come to get her, and take her to play with Jesus,” in her own worlds.” One of the members of the group photographed strange objects in the sky, and in my particular case, whenever Torti leaves home early on a Saturday morning she sees a round object in the sky. A group of youngsters barbecuing outside a house witnessed around midnight an intense luminous orb that irradiated shades of yellow and red. The not yet fully explained explosion of 26 September 2011 in Montegrande may have been the crash of a UFO according to Torti. The researcher recalls that the morning after the explosion, “One could see black SUVs, persons speaking English and German, and teams working behind screens as they took away chunks of metal that were left after the explosions.”

The witness was out in the backyard moving her sprinklers it was around 8pm and still full daylight. She moved the sprinkler and turned around to scan the sky in hopes of seeing some signs of rainclouds, that’s when she saw it. It was some distanced away, maybe about a quarter of a mile, if that. It was a large V shaped object in the southwestern sky. It was vertical and caught her eye quickly. Her first thought was, “What is that?” She could tell instantly that it was not any type of aircraft. She stared at it, the V shape curve slightly at the ends, like ‘bat wings’. At the junction of the wings, she could see a body mass of some sort. Not large, meaning, not in comparison to the wing size. These wings seemed enormous. However ‘it’ was flying away from her which would cause a foreshortening effect, possibly making the body seemed smaller than it actually was. She noticed that the body part of it seemed also to be moving. One moment it looked small (the body) and then the next moment it looked larger, like something was hanging down from it (legs?). But there was definitely movement. As she stared in disbelief, she was thinking that perhaps it was ‘a living thing!’ It was moving at a steady speed and was slowly twisting and turning a bit as it progressed because she could see the depth of the wings revealed every few seconds. They were substantially wide. She watched this ‘thing’ made a gentle curve and continued watching it until it flew out of sight. Her observation lasted about 20 seconds or so and at no point in her observation did this creature flap its wings. And then it was gone.
But according to the witness she is not the first person in the area to have witnessed such a thing. She knows of two young men, brothers, who four or five years ago swear they saw a gargoyle-like creature of enormous size, vault/fly over the hood of the pickup truck they were driving, northbound on I-55 going over the Meramec River Bridge in Arnold Missouri, late one night.

A woman identified as Pascuala Alzogaray rode her horse 25 kilometers in the middle of the night to request assistance from the police officers at the small community of La Union, since, as she claimed, all local ranchers are frightened by the recurring presence of a strange, hairy humanoid of considerable size. Alzogaray claims having seen the creature and described it as a sort of gorilla, covered in hair, walking on two legs and with the aspect of “an accursed being.”
“Something must be done about it, it’s the Ucumar,” she told police officers at the barracks, located 500 miles north of the provincial capital. Pascuala Alzogaray states that she saw the strange creature along with other members of her family, and that fear prompted them to leave the vicinity until the police do something.
“All the ranchers at El Divisadero and vicinity are afraid. This Ucumar, “she says, “roams through the night, steals farm animals and makes noises. When we go out to investigate, we feel him jumping through the tall treetops. It’s a monster and something must be done about it. Those of us who live in the area, creoles and native alike, are very afraid,” stressed the complainant.

This is an enhanced photo of the viral video that came out two months ago which at the time this video was made had close to 60,000 views. Is this an alien or a burn victim? This seems like the big debate over the original video. Maybe this will help people make their decision. I was able to sharpen the image and focused longer on the photo.

Alien Abduction - Cedar Park, TX
Cedar Park, TX - 8/21/2012 - unedited: 1- I was at home so I went to bed around 10:30 P.M and I usually fall alseep listening to the television so I fell asleep for about thirty minutes then the television went off by itself. I thought it was weird at first so then I started hearing noises like a huming sound so I looked out my window but didnt see anything so I thought I was just hearing stuff so I went back to sleep.
2- The first time I noticed anything was around 11:12 P.M. when my bedroom door opened and I could hear something walking beside me and standing beside me and of course I had my eyes closed so I didnt open them until I started hearing something in my mind saying, "Dont be affraid. We no harm.". So thats when I started to really freak out so I opened my eyes and I could barely see two dark figures, one standing beside me on my right and the second in front of me. So I closed my eyes hoping it was a dream but then things got very real. I could feel being lifted up and being brought out back where I could see a small oval shaped craft in my backyard and another triangle craft hovering right above it just few feet higher.
3- I thought the object was an actual UFO the first time I saw it of course. It was oval in shape, had about ten windows on the front of it, the color of it was dark grey and the second craft [triangle craft] was black with small diamond shaped windows around it.
4- Like I stated in the 3rd paragraph, the first object was oval in shape, ten windows on the front side and grey. The triangle UFO was complete black with tiny diamond windows around it. I thought it was weird that the oval craft landed and the triangle craft hovered right above it.
5- My god, I could feel something for sure. I was like, terrified. On a scale of 1-10, 1 being not so scared and 10 being terrified, Id have to go with 15. Once I was aboard the oval craft the only thing on my mind was, "How was I going to get out. . or am I ever going to be released...". So once I was aboard the craft it seemed just calm, I was placed on a silver table while about three beings came by me looking at me then talking. As for me, I dont know alien language so I have no idea what they were saying. Then one of the aliens came next to me and showed me this blue light then I blacked out. So I guess I was out for about twenty minutes because I awoke on the table while one of the aliens took my hand and had me step off the table and walk around. I looked all around the craft and it was just walls and rooms and windows. Nothing very interesting but I did get released about ten minutes later.
6- After being aboard the craft the suppose "leader" of the aliens, came beside me and showed me off the craft. I could hear him talking saying like, "Were sorry we terrified you. These are my students for a complete experiment. We will be back soon so do not panic.". So of course I didnt know what he meant when he said, we will be back soon so dont panic. So he showed me to the back door of my house and opened it while I stepped inside and looked back outside while the leader walked back inside the craft and took off in less then 15 seconds. Thats about it.
-Note- The first picture of my drawing is the picture of the two UFOs and the alien who took me aboard the craft. The second picture I found to be looking like the exact leader of the aliens who I saw. - MUFON CMS

Sri Lanka's Prison Department today will begin conducting interviews to select an executioner among over 150 prospective candidates.
The interviews will be held at the main Welikada Prison by a three-member panel, the Prisons Department said.
The Department looks to fill two posts - the hangman and an assistant- out of 178 eligible candidates selected from the vast number of applications the department received for the posts.
Sri Lanka judiciary imposes capital punishment but has not implemented the death penalty since 1976.
The government reinstated the death penalty in 2004 for murder, rape and drug trafficking following the murder of a high court judge.
Since 2000 there are 1,164 death row inmates languishing in jails waiting for execution or a final decision for commutation for execution. Some prisoners on death row at the moment have served over 15 years while waiting for their sentences to be carried out.
There are currently 357 people are in the death row in Sri Lanka's prisons. - colombopage
British Civil Aviation Authority Highly Interested In Pilots' UFO Sightings
Despite the fact the UK's Ministry of Defense officially ended its UFO investigations in 2009, it appears that the British Civil Aviation Authority decided -- unbeknownst to the public -- to continue collecting reports that involved UFOs with possible flight safety issues.
"They were only interested in sightings that definitely had a bearing on aircraft or flight safety, and were no longer interested in reports from the public, who'd seen things in the sky and reported them to the Civil Aviation Authority," said David Clarke, the official UK National Archives consultant and a journalism lecturer at Sheffield Hallam University.
Clarke told the Huffington Post that the Civil Aviation Authority -- a different government department from the MoD -- kept separate records of UFO cases, "not only by the aircrew, themselves, but also anything unusual that was seen by air traffic controllers on the ground at airports."
Through the filing of Freedom of Information requests, Clarke found that the Royal Air Force specifically requested any UFO reports submitted to the Department of Transport would no longer be forwarded to the MoD.
The RAF specifically states that "members of the public who make such reports are not encouraged to believe an investigation will take place."
It's now known that British air traffic controllers have been receiving UFO reports on almost a regular basis. Continue reading at British Civil Aviation Authority Highly Interested In Pilots' UFO Sightings

As soon as these mouth-breathing jokers (including Biscardi) feel people aren't paying enough attention to them, they come up with another stunt or start offering excuses and apologies. In Dyer's case, it seems to me that he has a form of 'Histrionic Personality Disorder'...he wants to be the center of attention among Bigfoot enthusiasts, and feels uncomfortable when they ignore him. This guy could benefit from psychotherapy...though, he'll probably grow out of it as he gets older and gets tired of acting like an idiot...Lon
